Ascend Hotel Collection Opens First Hotels in Baltimore

SILVER SPRING, Md.—Ascend Hotel Collection, part of Choice Hotels International, announced its debut in Baltimore with three boutique hotels in the waterfront neighborhoods of Inner Harbor and Fells Point.

The properties—Inn at Henderson’s Wharf, Pier 5 and Admiral Fell Inn—expand Ascend Hotel Collection’s lineup to 80 independent hotels. The hotels are owned and managed by Meyer Jabara Hotels, a hospitality company that owns and operates more than 20 lodgings in 13 states.

“Since its launch just a little more than four years ago, Ascend Hotel Collection has had incredible growth, adding distinctive properties operated by some of the top companies in the industry,” said Michael Murphy, senior vice president of upscale brands at Choice Hotels. “Our latest additions are true to the Ascend DNA. Within walking distance to great restaurants, nightlife and attractions, these exceptional hotels showcase the best of the local culture and go out of their way to help guests feel in the know about all that this city has to offer.”

Ascend Collection hotels maintain their independent brand identity and local character, while gaining Choice Hotels global distribution, sales, marketing, and technology platforms.
