Cambria Suites Welcomes Home Army Specialist, Chris Hogan!

When our General Manager, Ed Pickert, received a letter from Army Specialist, Chris Hogan, postmarked from Afghanistan, we knew we wanted to give Chris and his family something special.

Chris has spent the last four out of five years deployed, with two tours in Iraq, one in Korea and one in Afghanistan. However, he wasn’t contacting us about himself. He wanted to do something special for his wife, Shontae.

Shontae had met Chris while he was stationed in Colorado, before he was relocated to Fort Bragg. Shontae packed up her career and their daughter and followed Chris to Raleigh. When not on tour, Chris commutes to Fort Bragg daily, leaving every morning at 3:30. Chris makes this personal sacrifice to ensure his daughter receives a great education from a magnet school in Raleigh, as well as have the comfort in knowing that his parents are nearby. He even makes sure his wife has a full tank of gas before leaving for work!

Unfortunately, due to the constant traveling that comes with the military life Chris chose, he and Shontae were unable to have a honeymoon. We at Cambria Suites wanted Shontae and Chris to have this special night that both of them so truly deserved.

Although Chris will be returning to Afghanistan in two short weeks, we wanted to honor Chris and celebrate with his friends and family. On April 6, upon Chris’ arrival home, we hosted a welcome home party with his friends and family in attendance. The USO also helped us by decorating our lobby with red and blue party favors and balloons. Chris and Shontae’s family enjoyed time together with great food and great memories.

We gave Chris and Shontae a room key to one of our beautiful suites where they could finally enjoy a romantic night together. They also enjoyed our breakfast buffet with hot made-to-order items the next morning.

It truly is a blessing to have such great heroes in this country who go above and beyond to serve their local communities and their nation as a whole, as well as protect and honor their families. Chris is a great serviceman, husband, father and friend, and we were more than honored to share this special day with him.

We do hope Chris will be able to return home soon to his family, and we continue to wish Chris, his wife, daughter, family and friends the best of luck in the future. You will always be welcome at Cambria Suites!

The Favorite Flavor of Fall

The Favorite Flavor of Fall

As the cool winter air creeps in to the Triangle, we wanted to offer the perfect seasonal cocktail at our onsite Restaurant, Reflect. Nothing quite excites the taste buds during the autumn months like the pumpkin flavor. We knew the best way to offer the familiar taste was to offer a delicious Pumpkin Pie Martini! Come enjoy this cocktail before it’s too late. We will be serving the Pumpkin Pie Martini through December 31 at our full service bar. Each customer to purchase our Pumpkin Pie Martini will receive a raffle ticket, with one winner earning a $50 Visa Gift Card!

Interested in making these cocktails for your own fall gathering? Here’s the recipe:

Pumpkin Pie Martini

1 ¼ ounce Bailey’s Irish Cream
1 ¼ ounce ButterShots
¼ ounce Gold Rush Cinnamon Schnapps
Dash of Grand Marnier
Dollop of Whipped Cream
Sprinkle of pumpkin spice

Shake Bailey’s, ButterShots, Gold Rush and Grand Marnier with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Top with a dollop of whipped cream.

Sprinkle with Pumpkin Pie Spice.

New Year's Eve Bash @ Cambria Suites

On December 31, 2010, we held our 1st annual New Year’s Eve Bash! We enjoyed ringing in 2011 with over 100 guests, which was certainly a night to be remembered. We began the night with the greatest tracks from the 60s, the 70s, and the 80s spun by the talented DJ JD. He rocked hits from AC/DC to hits like Funky Cold Medina as well as Kokomo from The Beach Boys. Our guests displayed their talents on the dance floor all night long, as well as requesting their favorite hits! We also enjoyed a complimentary late night bistro fare, which included shrimp cocktail, mini-sandwiches, Swedish and BBQ meatballs, egg rolls, Spanakopita, and a nice dessert spread. We toasted to the New Year with a champagne toast, as well as cocktails from our full service bar. As the night came to a close, our guests were invited to stay in our King Size Suites and woke up to enjoy a New Year’s Day hot breakfast for two. We had a wonderful time as 2010 came to a close and we wish you and yours a fabulous year in 2011.

Be on the lookout to hear about our Valentine’s Romantic Dinner and Stay Package for Couples at Cambria Suites Hotel. More details will be coming next week.
