Thursday, June 21st, 2018
Choice Hotels International, Inc. has signed two agreements with Four Raines, LLC to develop Cambria hotels in Greenville and Summerville, S.C., both rapidly growing business regions. The Cambria Hotel Greenville and the Cambria Hotel Summerville are both slated to open in October 2019.
The Cambria Hotel Greenville will have 125 rooms and is located in an upscale mixed-use retail area with access to Whole Foods, Total Wine, and Ann Taylor LOFT. The property is within walking distance to the headquarters of TD Bank and BMW North American Technology, Hubbell Lighting, ICAR, and facilities operated by 3M, Honeywell, and General Electric.
The 95-room Cambria Hotel Summerville will be located in Nexton Town Center, a mixed-use development with retail and office space, live-music and event venues, and a walking and biking trail system. Hotel guests can enjoy dining experiences at nearby Halls Chophouse, Fuji Sushi, and Taco Boy. Summerville is home to Volvo, SCRA, Summerville Hospital and Medical Center, and Palmetto Care.
Both properties will feature several upscale amenities tailored for the modern traveler, including:
Spa-style bathrooms with Bluetooth mirrors
Contemporary and sophisticated guest rooms with plush bedding
Menus featuring hyper-local craft beer, wine, specialty cocktails, and bites
Locally inspired designs
State-of-the-art fitness centers
Multi-functional meeting space and business centers
"The Cambria Hotel Greenville and the Cambria Hotel Summerville represent our dedication to the brand's growth in corporate-rich areas," said Mark Shalala, vice president, development, upscale brands at Choice Hotels. "Four Raines, LLC has cultivated an expansive portfolio of properties across South Carolina over the past 50 years and is a longstanding collaborator with Choice Hotels, with a Cambria property in Mount Pleasant, S.C., slated to open later this year and Hotel Florence, an Ascend Hotel Collection member property. This allows for seamless coordination in bringing these new Cambria locations to market."
"Greenville and Summerville, S.C. are both charming, booming cities," said Grey Raines, managing partner of Four Raines, LLC. "Greenville is the largest and fastest-growing county in South Carolina, while Summerville is on the rise in the North Charleston area. Modern travelers visiting these communities will soon have the opportunity to enhance their stay at our upscale Cambria Hotels properties."
