Choice Hotels International, in collaboration with HOS Management, began development on the future Cambria Hotel Savannah Historic District in Savannah, Ga. Located at 321 Montgomery St., the 103-room, six-story property is slated to open in 2019.

The Cambria Hotel Savannah Historic District will include a rooftop bar, locally inspired interior and exterior designs, local art, multifunction meeting space, a business center and a fitness center. The hotel will also have contemporary onsite dining, serving a menu comprised of area specialties, signature cocktails and local craft beers, as well as grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches.

Savannah is home to the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States and includes the Savannah Historic District, the Savannah Victorian Historic District and many parks, offering guests the opportunity to learn more about the area and take in the natural scenery. The property is minutes from shopping, dining, museums and entertainment attractions, including the Savannah Civic Center and the SCAD Museum of Art, and is in close proximity to Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation.
