Date:2/19/2009

New All-Suites Brand Provides Solutions for Travelers

SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Although nearly half (45 percent) of American adults made a health-related New Year's resolution for 2009, more than two out of five (42 percent) have already fallen off the wagon, according to new research from Cambria Suites, the newest all-suite brand from Choice Hotels designed to appeal to travelers who seek contemporary, upscale accommodations at a great value. While adhering to health and wellness practices in everyday life is challenging for many Americans, the same study shows travel presents additional difficulties in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In fact, 83 percent of travelers find it difficult to stick to a healthy lifestyle while on the road, with nearly one-third (29 percent) finding it very difficult or impossible.

Healthy eating is the hardest habit to maintain, with 61 percent of survey respondents admitting this aspect is difficult to stick to while traveling. Second in difficulty is exercising (52 percent), followed by getting adequate sleep (48 percent). Nearly one-quarter (23 percent) of Americans find minimizing stress to be difficult on the road, and about one-fifth (17 percent) say it's hard to resist the urge to smoke.

"These results reveal that not many hotels are addressing the needs of today's guests, who want much more than a room and bed to feel truly at home," said William Edmundson, president, Cambria Suites. "We developed the Cambria Suites brand to accommodate all travelers seeking to maintain their own style of personal wellness, whether that's through cocktails or carrot juice. We want to surround our guests with comforts they don't necessarily expect to find while traveling."

All Cambria Suites hotels include Reflect, a casual dining and gathering area that features a full barista coffee bar and serves breakfast and dinner; Refresh, a 1,200 square foot, state-of-the-art fitness center with an indoor pool and spa; and Refill, a 24-7 convenience store that stocks freshly prepared "grab 'n' go" salads and sandwiches, as well as typical convenience items and healthy and organic foods. Not to mention, each room is a spacious suite that's 25 percent larger than most hotel rooms, allowing guests the freedom to relax, meditate or exercise with privacy and comfort. With all these amenities, Cambria Suites provides simple solutions to the biggest challenges travelers face in maintaining their healthy lifestyle.
