Development in Southlake continues as the new Cambria hotel & suites Southlake DFW North in Kimball Park moves closer to it’s grand opening in a few short months.
One of the world’s largest hotel companies, Fillmore Capital Partners and developer Fillmore Hospitality announced two appointments for the new Cambria hotel & suites Southlake DFW North opening October 15: Sam Cannon has been named general manager. The 175-room hotel is anchoring Kimball Park, a mixed-use development under construction at the northwest corner of State Highway 114 and Kimball Avenue in Southlake.
As general manager of the full-service hotel, Cannon will be responsible for managing day-to-day operations, hiring staff and leading local community relations activities.
With 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Cannon brings a wealth of knowledge to the Southlake location. Previously, Cannon served as the dual property general manager of Cambria hotel & suites and MainStay Suites in Rapid City, South Dakota. During Cannon’s more than four years of dual management, he oversaw the opening and staffing of one of the hotels, as well as directed both hotels in surpassing goals, brand standards and ratings, positioning both hotels in the top five within their respective brands. Before his dual management role, Cannon worked as the general manager for the historic Hotel Alex Johnson in Rapid City, where he moved the hotel from an independent to an affiliate hotel, re-positioned the property from a two diamond to a three diamond property with AAA, and oversaw other significant hotel achievements, including receiving several hospitality awards. Prior to management positions with hotels in South Dakota, Cannon held various leadership roles with hospitality institutions in Colorado, Michigan, Ohio and Texas.
Still under construction, the Cambria in Southlake continues to make progress towards its October grand opening. “Where everybody is somebody,” Cambria hotel & suites is an upscale brand within Choice Hotels, offering modern, stylish rooms for leisure and business travelers. Managed by Fillmore Hospitality and customized for the Southlake location, the four-story hotel will include an on-site restaurant and bar, fitness center, and complimentary high-speed WiFi throughout the property.
