New Castle Hotels & Resorts Opens Cambria Hotel Charleston Riverview

USA, Rockville, Maryland. May 02, 2019

Franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), the Cambria Hotels brand continues its South Carolina expansion with the opening of Charleston's newest hotel, the Cambria Hotel Charleston Riverview. The 126-room hotel is located at 84 Ripley Point Dr., along South Carolina's scenic Ashley River.

The upscale hotel is just minutes from the Historic Downtown District, where guests can explore the city's main attractions by foot or horse-drawn carriage, including the Charleston City Market, Riley Waterfront Park, Historic King Street, the South Carolina Aquarium, and the Dock Street Theatre. The hotel is also convenient to the Charleston International Airport, The Citadel, College of Charleston, Medical University of South Carolina, Roper Hospital, the Ralph H. Johnson Veterans Hospital, and Folly Beach.

"Charleston is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States and hosts approximately 7 million visitors annually, making it a prime location to welcome multiple Cambria hotels," said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. "Guests will love the hotel's central location and unique design inspired by the city's rich history and Southern charm, including an oyster shell countertop in the bar and guestroom murals of the city's beloved pineapple fountain, an international symbol of hospitality."

The hotel was developed by RREAF Holdings, a commercial real estate firm and will be managed by New Castle Hotels & Resorts, a leading third-party hotel management firm.

"With its charm, local shops, beaches, and renowned cuisine, it's no wonder why Charleston was ranked number one for eight-straight years by Conde Nast Traveler as the top tourism destination in the country," said Kip Snowden, CEO of RREAF Holdings. "We look forward to building on that recognition and providing visitors with an experience that exceeds their expectations with all of the upscale amenities that make for a memorable stay."

The Cambria Hotel Charleston Riverview joins the Cambria Hotel Mount Pleasant - Charleston, which opened in July 2018. Several other Cambria hotels are in the pipeline across the Palmetto state, including in Fort Mill, Greenville, Summerville, and Spartanburg.

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
