BEDFORD, N.S. — Choice Hotels International is set to open a handful of new Cambria Suites properties, thanks to a partnership with Maplewood Hotels & Resorts.
Maplewood is a joint venture between North Palm Beach, Fla.-based Driftwood Hospitality Management and Bedford, N.S.-based Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc.
“Pacrim has been a major hotel developer in Canada since the mid-1990s, and we are looking forward to developing Cambria Suites across Canada. Our joint venture in Maplewood Hotels and Resorts with Driftwood Hospitality Management provides outstanding opportunity to enhance our portfolio through new-build opportunities in Canada, the U.S. and beyond,” said Glenn Squires, CEO of Pacrim. “We expect to have a minimum of five Cambria Suites Hotels under construction in 2014 with openings to occur, starting in spring of 2015.”
Cambria Suites feature a spacious lobby and all-suite rooms that contain separate living, working and sleeping spaces; as well as “MediaHub” technology that allows the guest to connect a variety of electronic devices. The property also offers a contemporary bistro, barista bar, hot breakfast buffet and fitness centre.
