DOVER, NH—The Garrison Hotel, a 66-room upscale boutique hotel here, has joined Choice Hotels International’s Ascend Hotel Collection. The new hotel was inspired by the history of the area and takes its name from the city’s garrison buildings.
Upon entering the lobby, guests are introduced to narratives on Dover shipbuilding, mercantilism and the Colonial era through exhibits on display from The Woodman Institute, a Dover museum dedicated to preserving local history. In the lobby, there is a communal table, sitting areas, a large fireplace, as well as an outdoor patio and lawn area with plans for a fire pit for year-round gathering.
There are a range of guestroom types, and amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool, business center, free wireless internet and breakfast. The hotel is pet-friendly.
It is less than one mile from downtown Dover and a short distance from the University of New Hampshire and downtown Portsmouth.
