Meyer Jabara Hotels Selected to Manage Cambria Fort Lauderdale

USA, Danbury, Connecticut. January 30, 2019

Meyer Jabara Hotels (MJH) has been selected to manage a new construction Cambria hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., scheduled to open in 2020. Owned by Jai and Jessica Motwani, president and CEO of real-estate development group Hotel Motel Inc., the 97-room asset will be located at 2231 N. Ocean Blvd., across the street from the Auberge Beach Residences & Spa, considered to be Fort Lauderdale's most extraordinary beachfront property. The hotel will have views of the ocean and intercostal. Beachfront access is only feet away. Groundbreaking will begin once three existing motels are demolished.

“As a vacation destination that attracts more than 13 million people on average every year, we are eager to open this new Fort Lauderdale asset,” said Justin Jabara, VP of Development and Acquisition for Meyer Jabara Hotels. “We are breaking the mold with this property. Designed as a simplistic, elegant retreat, this hotel will come to set the standard within the market. It will feature all the amenities that business and leisure guests have come to enjoy, such as an open concept lobby, unique restaurant and cocktail lounge, flexible meeting space, state-of-the-art fitness center, swimming pool and retail space. This truly is an amazing asset, and with Meyer Jabara's management in play, this hotel will emerge as a market leader.

“This management contract marks the sixth Cambria® Hotels & Suites in our portfolio, and we are excited to re-enter the Fort Lauderdale market,” he said. “Cambria is the ideal brand for the market with its industrial design, stylish rooms, business center conveniences, and highly-personalized service. We are delighted to continue our growing relationship with Choice Hotels International and look forward to seeing this stylish property come to life.”

Under the design focus of Jessica Motwani and Hospitality Furnishings & Design Inc., the Cambria Fort Lauderdale will evoke a coastal modern aesthetic. The raw, natural materials of stone and wood will be complemented with clean, soft, modern finishes that provide a therapeutic space for all guests. Sandy tans and cool greys mingle with deep cerulean bringing the relaxing beachfront into the space and enabling guests to feel the presence of the coast resulting in a relaxed and rejuvenating experience.

“The Cambria Fort Lauderdale will quickly become the place to stay for urban travelers visiting south Florida,” Jabara said. “The hotel will be minutes away from some of the area's best attractions, including world-class dining and shopping at the Galleria Shops and Las Olas Boulevard, museums, and theaters. The Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades also are close by.”

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
