Choice Hotels, known for being a great option for weekend leisure travelers, is bringing their hip, chic Cambria brand to Chicago. These all-suite hotels, designed with business travelers and extended stay guests in mind, offer comfortable, stylish rooms with a local feel and space to breath.

Open now is the 215-room Cambria Chicago Magnificent Mile, located in the former MileNorth Hotel, right off the Magnificent Mile (166 E. Superior St., Chicago, IL 60611).
 
The second of the two new properties will be the Cambria hotel & suites Chicago - City Center, with 22 stories and 198 rooms above the Ford Center for the Performing Arts Oriental Theatre in Chicago’s downtown Loop.
 
Rooms will be mid-priced, ranging from $180-$249 per night, depending on the season. Rooms come with a separate work space and ergonomic chair, microwave and refrigerator (perfect for storing and heating leftovers from Chicago’s robust dining scene), and free wi-fi. Comfort food and healthy snacks will be available in the 24/7 convenience store, and local dining options created by Chef Michael DeMaria will be featured in the onsite bistro.
 
Like the other Cambria Hotels nationwide, these new properties will also feature art from Project Onward, a Chicago-based non-profit that specifically promotes the work of adults with disabilities. More about the partnership was highlighted by Ron Silva, president and CEO of Fillmore Capital Partners, one of Cambria’s co-investors. “These adults are all very gifted artists,” said Silva. “The organization provides a studio, funding and guidance for these adults so they can produce their art, they don’t have to live on the streets, and, in a way, it is part of their therapy so they can continue to function in our society. This is run totally on donations; there is no state or local funding. This is part of our gift and passion to bring this type of art to the hospitality industry.” 
 
The relationship Cambria has with Project Onward is a good indicator that they understand what many consumers want. In addition to a great product and stellar client service; people like to do business with those who positively impact the community.
