Choice Hotels International’s Ascend Hotel Collection recently added four properties to its global portfolio of resort, boutique and historic hotels: The Bluff Hotel in Savannah, GA; The Cranberry in Morgantown, WV; The Landon in Bay Harbor Islands, FL; and Smart Suites in Burlington, VT.
The newest additions embody how the Ascend Hotel Collection delivers on upscale experiences in travelers’ favorite destinations and provides guests with even more options for their outdoor springtime activities, according to the company.
“In the past year, backyard tourism has become increasingly preferred,” said Neerav Dudhwala, head of Ascend Hotel Collection, Choice Hotels. “We know that when guests travel, they are decisive about the destinations they select for their next escape and easy access to a range of outdoor activities is a key feature they look for in a hotel, which is why we’re pleased to add these exciting hotels to the Ascend portfolio.
