The Summit Group Inc., Opens in Boise
|Silver Spring, MD and Boise, ID, (April 25, 2007) – Choice Hotels International
(NYSE: CHH) today announced that its first Cambria Suites hotel opened
on April 13 in Boise, Idaho. Cambria Suites hotels are designed for guests
who want to take their lifestyle with them when traveling, and hotels feature
a stylish design that is more intimate than traditional hotel décor,
with guest suites that are 25 percent larger than standard hotel rooms.
The 119-suite Cambria Suites Boise Airport hotel is owned and operated
by The Summit Group Inc., a hotel developer focused on developing, managing,
and owning mid-market lodging properties nationwide. As of
March 31, 2007, there are 49 Cambria Suites hotels under development in
21 states nationwide.
“We are extremely excited to open the first-ever Cambria Suites hotel in Boise, Idaho,” said Charles A. Ledsinger, Jr., vice chairman and chief executive officer of Choice Hotels International. “We are very confident about the long-term growth prospects for this our tenth brand, as Cambria Suites hotels have proven to be very appealing to developers across the nation. Travelers will equally embrace the brand as they expect something different from a hotel. We feel that once guests stay in a Cambria Suites hotel, they’ll be advocates of the brand.”
A grand opening celebration was held April 17 at the hotel and was attended
by representatives of Choice Hotels, The Summit Group, area businesses
and many members of the Boise Chamber of Commerce. Presentations
were made by Choice and Summit executives as well as Carl Wilgus, administrator
of the Idaho Department of Commerce & Labor’s Division of Tourism.
