Choice Hotels International joined Ceres Enterprises and The Orlean Company for the groundbreaking of a new Cambria hotel & suites property in Westfield, Ind.
Located along 186th Street, the hotel will be part of the Westfield Grand Park Village, directly across from Westfield's Grand Park Sports Campus. The 153-room Cambria Westfield is set to open in fall 2017.
At the event, project representatives and local officials discussed the impact this new hotel will have on the growth and appeal of the community. Speakers included David Crisafi, president, Ceres Enterprises; Frank Crisafi, CEO, Ceres Enterprises; Janis Cannon, SVP, upscale hotels, Choice Hotels; Mayor Andy Cook, Westfield; and Ken Lurie, VP, The Orlean Company.
Westfield is a growing area within close proximity to Indianapolis, which has numerous corporate headquarters and major attractions, such as the Indianapolis Convention Center, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, NCAA Hall of Champions, Klipsch Music Center and the Grand Park Sports Complex.
"In an area with so much new development, Westfield is an ideal next stop for the Cambria hotels & suites brand," said Janis Cannon, SVP, upscale brands at Choice Hotels. "The Westfield property represents another example of Cambria's rapid expansion across the country, where we can provide an upscale offering suited for the needs of business and leisure travelers, in addition to sports teams."
The Cambria Westfield will have 153 guest suites, a variety of food options including an outdoor food service area, a fitness center and indoor pool and 3,800 square feet of meeting space.
"We could not be more excited to partner with Cambria hotels & suites on this venture, as we think this property will be a great addition to the Westfield community," said David Crisafi of Ceres Enterprises. "When it comes to the youth sports industry, this is certainly the place to be."
