New enVision Hotel in Everett, Mass., joins Choice's Ascend Collection

Choice Hotel International's Ascend Hotel Collection welcomed the newly opened enVision Hotel Boston Everett, the first new hotel to open in Everett, Mass., in more than seven decades. The property is a member of the Ascend Hotel Collection and consists of its own sub brand under enVision Hotels

One year ago, the enVision Hotel Boston-Everett kicked off its renovation from former shoe and garment factory to a design-forward boutique hotel. This is the third property by the enVision Hotel Management Company to join the Ascend Hotel Collection. The other enVision Hotel locations are in Boston’s Longwood neighborhood and St. Paul, Minn.

“The Ascend Hotel Collection is a portfolio of upscale, one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts. These properties have local charm and are deeply entrenched in their communities. By joining the Ascend Hotel Collection, they maintain all their uniqueness, and gain global hospitality expertise, reach and support from Choice Hotels,” Janis Cannon, SVP of upscale brands for Choice Hotels, said in a statement. “We are so pleased the enVision Hotel Management Company has achieved so much success with Ascend and are proud to see this third hotel open.”

The 101-room, vintage-inspired hotel includes design details harkening back to the building and the neighborhood’s past. The lobby displays a desk made of restored vintage steamer trunks, antique sewing machines and a giant scrabble board -- a signature element found at all the enVision properties. The hotel also has a meeting room and a café, Against the Grain Bistro, which offers light breakfast, lunch and dinner fare, as well as an espresso bar offering wine and beer.

“The support we’ve received from Choice Hotels and the Ascend Hotel Collection has been the driving factor behind our properties’ success and has enabled us to expand the enVision experience for a third time,” Gautam Sharma, president of Global Vision Hotels, owner of the enVision brand, said in a statement. “Our hotels are designed to give upscale travelers a vintage taste of the local surroundings, while enjoying modern amenities. We are so eager to share this experience with even more travelers in Boston.”

The enVision Hotel Boston-Everett is located 4 miles from downtown Boston and is close to Logan International Airport.
