Meyer Jabara Hotels Opens Cambria Fort Lauderdale

This is the 55th Cambria in the Choice Hotels International portfolio and the fourth Cambria Hotel managed by Meyer Jabara Hotels

Meyer Jabara Hotels (MJH) announces that the Cambria® Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach is now open. Owned by Jai and Jessica Motwani, president and CEO of real-estate development group Hotel Motel Inc., the 97-room hotel is located at 2231 N. Ocean Blvd. This is the 55th Cambria in the Choice Hotels International portfolio and the fourth Cambria Hotel managed by Meyer Jabara Hotels.

With views of the ocean, this uber clean, upscale hotel is safely welcoming guests looking for luxury boutique accommodations. Kara Lundgren joins MJH as General Manager.

“It’s peak season in Florida and we are thrilled that this property is open and welcoming guests to Fort Lauderdale Beach,” said Meyer Jabara Hotels President Justin Jabara. “The South Florida hospitality market is seeing signs of hope. People want to get away. They want to go to the beach. And they are finding the Cambria to be exactly what they have been missing in Fort Lauderdale. It has only been open for two weeks, but occupancy at this hotel is already surpassing projections. As vaccinations continue to roll out and confidence in traveling returns, we are confident that this hotel will perform well in the market.” 

The fully custom Cambria Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach is elegant and polished.  It is a fantastic addition to the Meyer Jabara Hotels portfolio. The property features an open concept lobby, flexible meeting space, expanded state-of-the-art fitness center, spa-style swimming pool, retail space and more. The hotel’s food and beverage operation will open mid-February with a lobby bar, Italian-influenced American cuisine restaurant and catering service to support group functions. A rooftop lounge will be unveiled in the Spring when the hotel celebrates its official Grand Opening.

“Despite the immense challenges of a pandemic, Meyer Jabara Hotels has not rested on our laurels. We continue to build upon our management services platform, and we could not be happier to open this property,” Jabara said. “Ownership and management really broke the mold when conceptualizing this hotel. It’s an amazing property, and as such, we have an amazing team led by General Manager Kara Lundgren who has extensive experience in both the South Florida and boutique hotel markets.  We are confident that with our management platform and Kara’s guidance, this property will emerge quickly as a market leader. We are delighted to continue our growing relationship with Choice Hotels International and look forward to introducing this stylish property to travelers.”
