Two new Cambria Hotel & Suites properties are under development in Chicago. Both hotels will be conversions of existing properties.

During a panel held at the announcement of both hotel's development plans, Marc Anderson, interim CEO of Choose Chicago, said that business visitation to the city grew 5.1 percent to 11.65 million travelers in 2015, a statistic that drew Choice Hotels International to the location for investment.

The 22-story Cambria Hotel & Suites -- City Center will have 198 rooms, and will open above the historic Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theater. The hotel's opening is set for September 2017, and will be located in Chicago's central business district known as the "Loop."
