Cambria Hotel Los Angeles - LAX

Choice Hotels International joined Fillmore Capital Partners and Fillmore Hospitality to celebrate the opening of the Cambria Hotel Los Angeles - LAX yesterday.

The property leads the Cambria brand’s expansion in California and is the first of several projects Cambria has planned in the Los Angeles area. The hotel brand has plans to open five additional Cambria hotels in the area: LA Live in the downtown area, LA Spring Street, Anaheim, Glendale and Calabasas. The brand also has agreements to develop future hotel properties in Napa and Sonoma.

To commemorate the opening, brand representatives and guests celebrated with a ribbon cutting, local craft wine and California cuisine. Speakers and dignitaries included officials from the mayor’s office of Manhattan Beach and Hawthorne, as well as the El Segundo Police Department; Janis Cannon, Choice Hotels SVP of upscale brands; and Ron Silva, president and CEO of Fillmore Capital Partners, who discussed the impact of this new hotel and its appeal to business and leisure travelers.
