ROCKVILLE, MD--The Capitol Hotel is the latest property to join the Ascend Hotel Collection by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), a portfolio of unique, boutique, and historic hotels and resorts that reflect their surrounding community.

Located in the heart of downtown Hartford at 440 Asylum Street, the recently renovated Capitol Hotel offers leisure and business travelers alike chic accommodations, unobstructed views of Connecticut's State Capitol building – after which the hotel is named – and convenient access to several nearby attractions, including the Connecticut Science Center, the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the Mark Twain House & Museum, and the Bushnell Performing Arts Center, as well as local colleges: Trinity College and St. Joseph College.

The Capitol Hotel is well positioned for business travelers visiting Hartford, which has been nicknamed the "Insurance Capital of the World." The hotel is convenient to several corporate headquarters, such as Aetna, The Hartford Financial Services Group, and The Phoenix Companies, as well as the city's Amtrak station and Bradley International Airport.

Other amenities of The Capitol Hotel include:

A state-of-the-art fitness center
Meeting and event spaces
Onsite parking
Complimentary breakfast

"As one of the nation's oldest cities, and today one of the area's leading economies, the city of Hartford marries modernity with rich tradition—which the Capitol Hotel captures perfectly," said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. "We're pleased to expand the Ascend Hotel Collection's offerings in high barrier-to-entry markets like Hartford and look forward to advancing the brand's growth in even more popular destinations around the globe."

The Ascend Hotel Collection currently has more than 250 properties open and nearly 60 hotels in the pipeline worldwide. This year, the brand expects to open several hotels in major U.S. markets, including Brooklyn, N.Y.; Philadelphia; Long Island City, N.Y.; and Napa, Calif.

As a member of the Ascend Hotel Collection, guests of The Capitol Hotel can participate in the award-winning Choice Privileges loyalty rewards program, rated a top hotel loyalty program by both USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice Awards and U.S. News & World Report for three consecutive years.
