PNK Group Investments Begins Construction on Cambria Hotel Los Angeles - Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles

USA, Rockville, Maryland. February 06, 2019

 Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) is excited to announce that PNK Group Investments has begun construction on the Cambria Hotel Los Angeles - Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles. Slated to open in 2020, the 13-story, 180-room hotel is the adaptive reuse of a Historic Core District building built in 1927 that was once the office for the Los Angeles Police Department Vice Squad.

Located at 419 S. Spring Street, the hotel will be situated along Gallery Row, one of the city's top arts attractions, and within walking distance to Little Tokyo's shopping boutiques and trendy restaurants. The hotel will be close to a number of cultural and entertainment options, including Grand Central Market, Museum of Contemporary Art, The STAPLES Center, Dodger Stadium, L.A. Live, and the Regent Theatre DTLA.

"Downtown Los Angeles has experienced major revitalization in the past decade, making Spring Street an ideal location to meet the renewed interest in the growing area. Choice is committed to expanding the Cambria Hotels brand throughout L.A. and this hotel joins the already open Cambria Hotel LAX, with several other new construction hotels in development in Anaheim, Burbank, and Calabasas," said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. "With the recent relocation of high-profile company headquarters like Spotify and Warner Music Group, as well as the increase in local attractions, Downtown Los Angeles has reinvented itself as a destination for business and leisure travelers. We're excited for this Cambria Hotel adaptive reuse project to be a part of the renaissance."

PNK Group Investments was founded in 1982 and is based in Hollywood, Calif. The company engages in the acquisition, construction, renovation, and operation of hotels throughout California and Texas.

"Greater Los Angeles has always been a popular travel spot for U.S. and global travelers, and the Downtown area of this vibrant city is quickly becoming a top destination in its own right. The Los Angeles Convention Center attracts more than 2 million visitors annually and the city is exploding with new restaurants and shops catering to a diverse population," said Sagar Kumar, managing member of PNK Group Investments. "We cannot wait for guests to experience the one-of-a-kind transformed Cambria Hotel Los Angeles - Spring Street and all of the upscale amenities offered."

Eco-Friendly Practices: Corporate Social Responsibility

The hotel industry has undertaken a long-term effort to build more responsible and socially conscious businesses. What began with small efforts to reduce waste - such as paperless checkouts and refillable soap dispensers - has evolved into an international movement toward implementing sustainable development practices. In addition to establishing themselves as good corporate citizens, adopting eco-friendly practices is sound business for hotels. According to a recent report from Deloitte, 95% of business travelers believe the hotel industry should be undertaking “green” initiatives, and Millennials are twice as likely to support brands with strong management of environmental and social issues. Given these conclusions, hotels are continuing to innovate in the areas of environmental sustainability. For example, one leading hotel chain has designed special elevators that collect kinetic energy from the moving lift and in the process, they have reduced their energy consumption by 50%  over conventional elevators. Also, they installed an advanced air conditioning system which employs a magnetic mechanical system that makes them more energy efficient. Other hotels are installing Intelligent Building Systems which monitor and control temperatures in rooms, common areas and swimming pools, as well as ventilation and cold water systems. Some hotels are installing Electric Vehicle charging stations, planting rooftop gardens, implementing stringent recycling programs, and insisting on the use of biodegradable materials. Another trend is the creation of Green Teams within a hotel's operation that are tasked to implement earth-friendly practices and manage budgets for green projects. Some hotels have even gone so far as to curtail or eliminate room service, believing that keeping the kitchen open 24/7 isn't terribly sustainable. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
