Choice Hotels International

Based in Rockville, Md., Choice Hotels International has been franchising its oldest brand, Quality Inn, since 1941. Its most recent brand, the Ascend Collection, joined the roster in 2008. Cambria Hotels & Suites, Choice’s upscale new construction brand, was launched the year before and recently was rebranded and revamped with new lobby and room designs. Choice enjoyed a record-making 2015 marked by significant growth—the company’s ADR increased nearly 4 percent in 2015 and its RevPar jumped more than 6 percent. The company’s new website and mobile app are performing better than expected, and its growing rewards program has members primed to spend almost $2.6 billion this year.
