The property is within driving distance to several regional attractions, like the historic beaches of St. Augustine and Fernandina, St. Johns River, World Golf Village, and Marineland. 

"The Cambria Hotels brand is a great fit for Jacksonville, the fifth-fastest growing city in the United States and a major economic driver for the region's 1.5 million residents," said Mark Shalala, vice president, franchise development, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. "Choice Hotels continues to expand the Cambria brand in markets where business and leisure demand is strong, and the Southeast region of the country, especially Jacksonville, is another key location to add to our growing portfolio."
