ROCKVILLE, Md., Jan. 15, 2016 -- Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, Hidrock Properties and Concord Hospitality celebrated the grand opening of the new Cambria hotel & suites NY - Times Square in style last night with a vintage winter wonderland. Guests were treated to music by famed jazz musician Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra, as well as property tours and remarks by Steve Joyce, president and CEO of Choice Hotels, Michael Murphy, senior vice president of upscale brands at Choice Hotels, Mark Laport, president and CEO of Concord Hospitality and Abraham Hidary, CEO of Hidrock Properties.

Operated by Concord Hospitality, the 81,000 square-foot, 196-room Cambria hotel & suites NY – Times Square is located in the heart of Manhattan's central business district at 30 W 46th St., making it a short walk from many of New York's iconic locations, including Times Square, the Theater District, Central Park and the Empire State Building.

"The opening of Cambria hotel & suites Times Square is a testament to the performance and appeal our award-winning brand has with business and leisure travelers alike," said Michael Murphy. "We are fortunate to be able to partner with one of the industry's top developers to grow the Cambria brand's presence in world-class markets like New York City. The sky is the limit, and we expect the Times Square location to quickly emerge as a flagship property for us moving forward."

The new  Cambria  hotel & suites features spacious rooms with modern decor, large bathrooms and free Wifi. A lobby bar offers guests the opportunity to connect with the city, featuring outdoor seating at the front and rear of the property. 

In addition, the new hotel will feature a state-of-the-art fitness center, along with other fine amenities such as a contemporary bistro, Social Circle™, serving a menu of local specialties; liquor, wine, beer and freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches; and a barista bar.

"We're thrilled to once again partner with Choice Hotels on the Cambria hotels & suites brand after the successful openings of Cambria Chelsea in New York last summer and Cambria Washington, D.C. in 2014," said Mark Laport. "The Cambria brand has some of the highest guest satisfaction scores in the upscale lodging segment, which is just one of the many reasons why Concord is happy to add another Cambria to our roster of over 90 hotels open in the United States and Canada."  

Announced in 2012, the new Times Square Cambria hotel & suites is one of three Cambria properties built simultaneously in the New York metro area over the past three years as part of the brand's growth in key urban markets. The Chelsea property in Manhattan, the downtown White Plains property, and the new Times Square Cambria hotel represent a combined investment of $141 million in New York, creating nearly 1,000 jobs and 461 hotel rooms.
