ROCKVILLE, Md., July 26, 2018 — Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) and York Investment Properties, LLC have broken ground on the Cambria Hotel Fort Mill. The 127-room property is expected to open in 2019 and will be situated within a mixed-use development site containing an apartment complex, retail center, and office space. The Fort Mill property is one of several Cambria hotels slated to open throughout the Carolinas in the coming years.

Located near the state border at 335 Armistead Lane in Fort Mill, S.C., the new Cambria hotel is close to the bustling business corridor of Charlotte, N.C., which is home to several Fortune-500 companies, including Bank of America, Lowes's Home Improvement, and Duke Energy. Nearby regional corporate offices include AECOM, ProLogistix, and Shutterfly. The Cambria hotel also offers guests convenient access to top Fort Mill attractions, including the Carowinds amusement park and various hiking and biking trails.

"The groundbreaking of the Cambria Hotel Fort Mill marks an important next step in the brand's growth throughout the region," said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. "The Carolinas have a strong corporate presence and steady leisure demand, attracting record numbers of visitors annually – which is why we already brought the Cambria brand to Asheville and Durham and will soon be opening in the Charleston Riverview, Greenville, Mount Pleasant, Rock Hill, and Summerville areas. York Investment Properties' development expertise in the Southeast will put the brand on a path for success in the region."

The new hotel will feature the hallmarks of the Cambria brand tailored for the modern traveler, including:

  • Spa-style bathrooms
  • Contemporary and sophisticated guest rooms with plush bedding
  • State-of-the-art fitness center
  • Locally inspired design
  • Menus featuring freshly made food, local craft beer, wine, specialty cocktails, and small bites
  • Multi-function meeting space and open lobby spaces with places to meet, work, and hang out with free Wi-Fi

"The Cambria Hotel Fort Mill property's modern design and upscale amenities are the perfect fit for the area's growing business community and travelers coming to experience the vibrant area," said Barry Weinstein, president and managing partner, York Investment Properties. "Choice Hotels has been a tremendous teammate throughout the development process. We are eager to bring this hotel and its distinct upscale offerings to guests."
