USA, Rockville, Maryland. June 26, 2019

Construction has begun on the Cambria Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach, franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) and developed by Hotel Motel Inc. The hotel will be within short walking distance to public North Beach access when it opens in 2020. This is Cambria Hotels' second hotel in the city, joining the Cambria Hotel Fort Lauderdale Airport South & Cruise Port.

The 104-room Cambria Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach, which will be located at 2231 N Ocean Blvd., will offer ocean views and convenient access to The Strip, the city's popular waterfront promenade with dining and retail options. The hotel will also be located a short drive from the Broward County Convention Center; Port Everglades, one of the world's busiest cruise terminals; and several corporate headquarters, including DHL Solutions America, SATO Global Solutions, and Spirit Airlines.

"The Cambria Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach will allow guests to take advantage of everything that makes the city a bustling destination year-round," said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. "With more than 10 million leisure and business travel visitors annually, Fort Lauderdale is the perfect market to welcome a second Cambria hotel, our sought-after upscale brand."

The hotel is being developed by Hotel Motel Inc. which is owned by Jai Motwani, an experienced developer with several hotels in southern Florida.

"Choice Hotels has been a phenomenal collaborator from the moment we first signed our franchise agreement," said Motwani. "The Cambria Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach will be perfect for travelers searching for a unique, upscale experience. We can't wait to provide our guests with a memorable hotel stay."

There are more than 40 Cambria hotels open across the U.S. in popular cities, like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C. The Cambia brand will enter more prime markets this year, including Anaheim and Napa, Calif.; Boston; and Houston.

Social Media: Social Listening Tools

The reach and influence of social media is staggering. Nearly 3 billion people use social media daily, posting a range of messages, selfies, images, and everything in-between. According to HubSpot, almost 4 million posts are uploaded to the major social networks every single minute! That's an astounding amount of content and it is crucial for hotels to skillfully use social media in order to effectively compete. From establishing a suitable brand identity and voice to creating content across all the major networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), the goal is to actively engage consumers and to eventually convert them to customers. Some hotels are initiating online contests as a way to attract new customers, while others are rewarding customers with discounts who subscribe to the their email lists or follow their social media pages. Another recent strategy is to employ social media listening tools that track what people are posting online about their businesses. These tools allow hotels to monitor - or listen to - what's being said about a brand across the entire social web, and this can prove to be very valuable, unfiltered information. Social listening permits hotels to be aware of people's opinions about their business, industry or competitors, and some of these tools even listen beyond social media platforms. They also monitor publicly available information on blogs, forums, news outlets and websites. Some listening tools are more focused on gathering and analyzing data, while others offer more engagement-oriented features, which allow hotels to interact with people right from the platform. Often the information that is gleaned from these listening tools ends up being the most authentic, unbiased insights a business can get. The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to successfully integrate social media strategies into their operations.
