Choice Hotels International signed two agreements with Four Raines Development to build two Cambria hotels in Greenville and Summerville, S.C. The Cambria Hotel Greenville and the Cambria Hotel Summerville are both slated to open in October 2019.

The Cambria Hotel Greenville will have 125 rooms and is located in an upscale mixed-use retail area with access to Whole Foods, Total Wine and Ann Taylor Loft. The property is within walking distance to the headquarters of TD Bank and BMW North American Technology, Hubbell Lighting, ICAR and facilities operated by 3M, Honeywell and General Electric.

The 95-room Cambria Hotel Summerville will be located in Nexton Town Center, a mixed-use development with retail and office space, live-music and event venues, and a walking and biking trail system. Hotel guests will have access to dining experiences at nearby Halls Chophouse, Fuji Sushi and Taco Boy. Summerville is home to Volvo, SCRA, Summerville Hospital and Medical Center and Palmetto Care.
