Mayfair Hotel in NYC Joins Ascend Collection

The Mayfair Hotel in New York City has joined the Ascend Hotel Collection of Choice Hotels International. The Mayfair Hotel adds to the Ascend Hotel Collection’s existing New York City hotels the Blue Angel Hotel, The L Hotel and the Insignia Hotel.

The Ascend Hotel Collection features a global portfolio of over 360 independent resort, historic and boutique hotels.

The seven-story, 77-room property at 240-242 W. 49th Street is situated in the heart of New York City’s Theatre District. Located adjacent to Broadway’s renowned Eugene O’Neill, Ambassador, Gershwin and Barrymore theaters, guests will be a short walk from Times Square, Hell’s Kitchen, and other popular NYC attractions. The recently renovated property maintains the historic hotel’s stunning original style, while featuring modern amenities, locally-inspired décor, lavish guest rooms, and an on-site restaurant and lounge.

“As ‘the city that never sleeps,’ New York City is a hub with rich history and vibrant culture,” said Indy Adenaw, senior vice president and general manager, upscale, Choice Hotels. “We’re excited to welcome The Mayfair Hotel to the Ascend Hotel Collection as we continue to thoughtfully expand the Collection’s upscale offerings to the growing New York City market. Like the city that surrounds it, we know the reimagined Mayfair Hotel will deliver the unique and infectious spirit of this iconic city.”

Choice Hotels is an industry challenger within the upscale segment with its Ascend Hotel Collection, Radisson and Cambria Hotels brands. These upscale brands enable Choice Hotels to meet guests’ needs in more places and for more occasions while driving more value for owners.
