July 19, 2017 – The Garrison Hotel, a new boutique property in the city of Dover, N.H., is the latest independent hotel to join the Ascend Hotel Collection from Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world’s leading hotel companies.

The 66-room upscale boutique hotel was inspired by the rich history of Dover, N.H. and takes its name from the city’s historic garrison buildings. Throughout the hotel, the area’s colorful history comes to life through design and décor. As soon as guests enter the lobby, they can learn more about Dover shipbuilding, mercantilism, and the colonial era through exhibits on display from The Woodman Institute, a Dover museum dedicated to preserving local history.

The Garrison offers travelers a range of guest room types, fitness center and indoor pool, business center, free wireless internet, free breakfast, pet-friendly accommodations, and local area recommendations to help make your stay more enjoyable. The hotel lobby features a communal table, comfortable sitting areas, a large fireplace, and an outdoor patio and lawn area with plans for a fire pit for year-round gathering.

The hotel is less than one mile from Dover’s bustling downtown center and a short drive from the University of New Hampshire and downtown Portsmouth. The Garrison also serves as a pleasant stopping point along the way to the scenic White Mountains and Lakes Region. One hour from Boston, Portland, Maine, New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee, and within 30 minutes from New Hampshire beaches, Dover offers activities year round and is an ideal destination for travelers.
