ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 27, 2015 -- Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, announced it has signed an agreement with franchise partners Ceres Development and Orlean Enterprises, to develop a new Cambria hotel & suites in Bloomington, MN. The 160-room Cambria property will be located at the intersection of 28th Avenue South and American Blvd. East in Bloomington, MN and is expected to open in 2017. The hotel will serve Mall of America visitors as well as the surrounding area.

"Cambria hotels & suites continues to experience tremendous growth," said Michael Murphy, senior vice president, Upscale Brands, Choice Hotels International. "This is a great opportunity for our brand, and we're thrilled to once again partner with Ceres to become neighbors with a world-class attraction like the Mall of America."

Ceres Enterprises, LLC, has owned and operated fine hotels for over 25 years.  It is family owned, and managed by Frank Crisafi, CEO, and his son David Crisafi, President.  Both have extensive and successful careers in hotel and real estate development.  They have earned their law degrees from Cleveland State University, and The University of Virginia, respectively. Working with the premier franchises of the hotel industry, they have developed a market dominating portfolio in the Cleveland and Troy, Ohio markets as well as in Noblesville, Indiana.

Founded in 1954, Orlean Enterprises has grown to become a leader in developing commercial real estate, residential properties, and rehabilitation projects.  They are led by Chief Executive Officer, David Orlean.

"Cambria hotels & suites will be a wonderful new addition for travelers seeking an upscale full-service hotel at an affordable price. We're excited to provide a top-notch product and exceptional service to the robust Mall of America Market," said David Crisafi, President of Ceres Enterprises, LLC.

Designed as a business travel and leisure brand, all Cambria hotels are new-construction and feature a larger lobby to give guests a warmer, engaging social atmosphere; oversized rooms that are larger than standard hotel rooms and include separate living, working and sleeping space; and the latest technology that allows guests to stay connected while they travel.

Like all Cambria hotels & suites, the Bloomington, MN property will feature other fine amenities such as a contemporary bistro, Social Circle™, serving a menu comprised of local specialties created by Chef Michael DeMaria; liquor, wine, beer and freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches; and a barista bar. This property will also boast 4000 square feet of meeting space and a state of the art fitness center, indoor pool, restaurant, bar, and terrace.
