For travelers who want Manhattan style without the price tag, this property boasts high design, state-of-the-art green features, and 114 elegant guestrooms with market-driven opening rates from an affordable $139 per night.

Ascend Hotel Collection is a network of more than 75 upscale independent hotels, each with a singular personality reflecting its locale. As part of this eclectic network, the property maintains its independent brand identity. At the same time, it gains access to the global sales and marketing channels of one of the world's largest hospitality companies. Ascend Hotel Collection boasts a total reservation contribution rate from Choice Hotels of more than 58 percent, the highest among the Choice family of brands. Being a member of the Choice Hotels family, Hotel de Point enjoys visibility before a network of more than 15 million Choice Privileges rewards members worldwide. It also acquires a presence on ChoiceHotels.com, one of the industry's most visited websites.

Hotel de Point is managed by Real Hospitality Group, based in Ocean City, Md., and owned by Queens-based Point 128 LLC, with award-winning architect Raymond Chan as the project's managing partner.

"Raymond has designed high-concept hotels and restaurants in gateway cities around the globe," explains Peter Reyes, the lodging's general manager. "With Hotel de Point, he wanted to turn his ideas into his own place.

"Ascend Hotel Collection intrigued us because it has this same goal," Reyes continues. "It's a simple, straightforward program. We gain the sales and marketing support of a global hospitality company, while still staying true to the owners' original vision."
