The second story is a more interactive post on HotelChatter that we've been trying lately. Basically, there is a chain of hotels called Cambria Suites that was launched a couple years ago by Choice Hotels. We periodically get information from them on specials, hotel openings, etc., but none of us has ever actually stayed in one, so we've asked our readers for their input about what they are like. Hopefully we'll hear back from them soon.
