Dover, N.H.– 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.
