Since January, Cambria Hotels has opened six new hotels in markets that include Bloomington, Minnesota; Greenville, South Carolina; Madeira Beach, Florida; Summerville, South Carolina; and now in Ocean City, Maryland, and Rohnert Park, California. Both the Cambria Hotel Ocean City – Bayfront and Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country are short drives from major metropolitan areas.
“With leisure travel returning faster than business travel right now, we’re thrilled to offer these getaways so guests can have the chance to relax, rejuvenate, and disconnect,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “Ocean City is a vibrant seaside town and one of the most popular beach destinations on the east coast, while the Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country connects guests to some of Northern California’s most well-known and picturesque vineyards.
