ROCKVILLE, Md., March 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cambria Hotels brand debuted in the Music Capital of the World yesterday evening with the grand opening of the 255-room Cambria Hotel Nashville, the brand's biggest property. The Cambria Hotels brand is franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, which co-hosted the celebration with representatives from Fillmore Capital Partners, Fillmore Property Group and Fillmore Hospitality. An affiliate of Choice Hotels entered into a Joint Venture with Filmore Capital Partners and its affiliates as sponsor, hotel developer and management company.
Upon arrival, guests received a warm welcome from the Tennessee Titans Cheerleaders and were greeted by the familiar sounds of live country music being performed on the hotel's lobby stage at True Music Room and Bar. Performances included a 60-minute set by country music star and the winner of The Voice, Cassadee Pope, and songs by local band Nashville Yacht Club. Guests also enjoyed the Nashville sound from the hotel's rooftop bar and outdoor patio.
Following a ribbon-cutting ceremony, guests celebrated with drinks from True Music Room and Bar and local fare from the soon-to-open NashHouse, Southern Spoon and Saloon, located on the street level of the Cambria Hotel Nashville. Hotel tours highlighted the tailored Music City-inspired design details incorporated throughout the property, including an art installation of western boots, a photo booth and reclaimed wood walls sourced locally.
Speakers at the event included Senior Vice President of Upscale Brands for Choice Janis Cannon, and President and CEO of Fillmore Capital Partners Ron Silva, who expressed their excitement about the Cambria brand's arrival in Nashville and robust growth across the United States.
"Celebrating the Cambria Hotel Nashville, located at the epicenter of the City and created for the design literate, experience-hungry traveler, is a fantastic way to highlight the brand's continued expansion into major markets across the country. Local authenticity is the essence of the Cambria Hotels brand and this property really delivers for the modern traveler through multiple touchpoints – design, décor, food and beverage and, of course, service," said Cannon. "We're happy to have once again teamed up with Fillmore Capital Partners and Fillmore Hospitality for this brand defining project."
