Choice Hotels International signed an agreement with Greenville, S.C.-based real estate fund manager Niam Investments to develop a six-story, 119-room Cambria Hotel in Spartanburg, S.C. The upscale hotel is slated to open in summer 2020.

Located at 167 N. Church St., the new Cambria Hotel will be in downtown Spartanburg, near several corporate headquarters including Denny's, Milliken & Company and JM Smith Corporation, as well as the world's largest BMW manufacturing facility. The hotel is also near local attractions such as the Chapman Cultural Center, Spartanburg Art Museum, Ballet Spartanburg and the Spartanburg Little Theater. The Spartanburg Medical Center and seven colleges and universities, including Wofford College, are also nearby.

"Choice continues to expand the Cambria Hotels brand in desirable markets with strong demand for both business and leisure travel. The Southeast region of the country has proven itself as an especially ideal location for our growing upscale portfolio," Mark Shalala, VP, franchise development, upscale brands at Choice Hotels, said in a statement. "The Cambria Hotel Spartanburg will join several other Cambria hotels in South Carolina: the brand's first hotel in the state opened last year in Mount Pleasant and several more are in the pipeline, including a second hotel in the Charleston market, as well as in Fort Mill, Greenville and Summerville."
