Cambria Suites, Choice Hotels' upscale brand, announced plans to open a 239-room hotel in Manhattan in 2009, near Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. A 300-room Cambria Suites is also being built in Brooklyn.

"Our second Cambria Suites hotel in New York City is in a very high-profile location, within a few blocks of major corporations and tourist destinations, including the Empire State Building, Jacob Javits Convention Center, Penn Station and Madison Square Garden," said Dan Hagan of PLC Partners, in a statement.

The property will offer flat-screen LCD televisions, CD/DVD players, and MP3 jacks in the guest suites and complimentary wired and wireless high-speed Internet access throughout the property.

All Cambria Suites hotels include Reflect, a casual dining area that features a full barista coffee bar and serves breakfast and dinner; Refresh, a 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 store fare and healthy and organic foods. In addition, all hotels offer more than 1,000 square feet of meeting space.
