New Cambria Suites planned for Miami Beach

Choice Hotels International signed an agreement with franchise partner CGI Merchant Group and 163rd St. Executive Center to develop a new Cambria property in North Miami Beach. The 165-room hotel is expected to open in 2017.

AFIN Developer Group will play a role in the development of the 165-room hotel and 20,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

"We continue to experience strong momentum in bringing the Cambria hotels & suites experience to new business and leisure travelers, and we're excited to announce our new hotel in North Miami Beach," said Michael Murphy, SVP, upscale brands, Choice Hotels International. "This is a fantastic location with explosive growth, and we can't wait to bring our brand to travelers in this market."

Designed as a business travel and leisure brand, all Cambria hotels are new-construction and have a larger lobby to give guests a more social atmosphere; all-suite rooms that are larger than standard hotel rooms and include separate living, working and sleeping space; and modern technology that allows guests to stay connected while they travel.
