The Ascend Hotel Collection from Choice Hotels has added three new properties to its global portfolio of resort, boutique and historic hotels. The new additions are The Harborview in Port Washington, Wisconsin; The Crossroads Hotel – Newburgh in Newburgh, New York; and the 17 West Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The hotels are conveniently located within driving distance of nearby metropolitan areas and are owned and operated by longtime Choice franchise owners.
Like every Ascend Hotel Collection member, The Harborview, The Crossroads Hotel – Newburgh, and 17 West Hotel are uniquely woven into the fabric of their surrounding communities to deliver a one-of-a-kind travel experience for guests, while providing owners with increased opportunities in local markets.
Features of the brand’s newest hotels, include:
- The Harborview: Nestled along the shores of Lake Michigan, just 30 minutes from downtown Milwaukee and less than a two-hour drive from state capital Madison, the 93-room Harborview hotel positions guests steps away from Port Washington’s award-winning downtown district and top attractions, including Whistling Straits Golf Course and the region’s most popular fishing spots. Following a day of shopping or relaxing on the water, guests of The Harborview can unwind at the Beacon, the hotel’s onsite restaurant and bar. The hotel is owned by Eric Lund and is managed by S & L Hospitality.
- The Crossroads Hotel – Newburgh: Situated approximately two hours from downtown Manhattan in the heart of the Hudson Valley, the 124-room Crossroads Hotel connects travellers to the area’s top vineyards, orchards and outdoor attractions, including Hudson Highlands State Park and Storm King State Park as well as Woodbury Common Premium Outlets and Legoland. In addition to stunning mountain views and a seasonal outdoor pool, guests can enjoy easy access to the historic Washington Headquarters downtown and local eateries overlooking the Hudson River. The hotel is owned by Aims Newburgh Management LLC.
- 17 West Hotel: The 220-room 17 West Hotel, easily accessible from all major highways and the Tulsa International Airport, puts guests at the center of Tulsa’s famed arts and culture scene. In addition to spacious guestrooms and onsite dining at the Boulder Grill, guests can take advantage of the property’s proximity to the popular BOK Center, Tulsa Performing Arts Center, Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame, and the nearby Blue Dome District, sought-after for its vibrant murals, art deco-style architecture and local eateries. The hotel is owned by OHT IV, LLC. and managed by O’Reilly Hospitality Management, LLC., which also has ownership interest in the Yellowstone Valley Lodge, an Ascend Collection member, as well as five Cambria hotels.
In the coming months, Ascend also plans to open hotels in more popular destinations, including Orlando, FL, and Las Vegas, NV.
