Palm Beach, FL — Hospitality Funding, Inc. arranged a construction loan for the development of a new Cambria hotel & suites in Napa, Calif. Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world’s largest hotel companies, signed an agreement with franchise partner Stratus Development Partners, LLC on the ground up development expected to open in 2019.
