Choice Hotels' Ascend Hotel Collection Welcomes Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel And Casino

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ascend Hotel Collection from Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, adds Downtown Grand Las Vegas to its impressive list of upscale hotels.  On October 27, a small group of guests wined, dined and gambled at the new hotel and casino. Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn and his wife Andrea showed their support by placing the first bets.

On November 12, 2013, the hotel's two towers and casino will host a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Mayor of Las Vegas and other local dignitaries, and on November 16, local residents and visitors will continue the celebration with a street party "Downtown 3 rd presents: Rock the Block" that will include five diverse musical acts on 3 rd street and inside the hotel.

This 634-room hotel is the largest member in the Ascend Hotel Collection, a network of one-of-a-kind upscale properties. Each Ascend hotel is a unique reflection of the distinct character of its host city, yet all offer the same high standards of hospitality and comfort.  Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel and Casino does all that and more.

WORLD CLASS WITH LOCAL FLARE

"What makes Downtown Grand Las Vegas so extraordinary is that it offers a world class experience -- through its casino, restaurants, high style and exceptional service -- while remaining firmly committed to the local downtown Las Vegas vibe. That upscale, local experience is the essence of the Ascend Hotel Collection," said Michael Murphy, senior vice president of upscale brands at Choice Hotels International.  "We had been eagerly awaiting the doors to open and are extremely pleased to have it as a highlight within the portfolio. This hotel and the rapidly growing Ascend Hotel Collection truly embody the future of Choice Hotels International." 

"Downtown Grand Las Vegas is delighted to be a member of the Ascend Collection," said Seth Schorr, chief executive officer of Downtown Grand Las Vegas.  "Downtown Grand Las Vegas, like its name implies, embodies all that's exciting about the city and the emerging downtown area, with a stellar line-up of restaurants, bars, gaming and more.  As part of the Ascend Hotel Collection, which is all about truly local culture and experiences, we know we're in good company."

Located in the heart of Las Vegas, this hotel is part of an amazing revitalization breathing new life and contributing to the new cultural, fun and authentic downtown community.  The hotel is located in Downtown3 rd, the new metropolitan center of downtown Las Vegas, where guests can enjoy traditional activities like gambling or walk just a few steps to the Fremont Street Experience, charming eateries and bars, the edgy and quirky Arts District, live music venues and museums, including the popular Mob Museum right across the street.

STAY AND PLAY

The guest rooms at Downtown Grand Las Vegas set an entirely new standard.  All five room types – Deluxe, Premium, One-Bedroom Suite, City Suite and Grand Suite – offer spacious accommodations, high-definition flat screen televisions, presidential pillow top mattresses, luxurious bed linens, plush lounge chairs and stylish custom furnishings.
