The historic Century House joins Ascend Hotel Collection

This historic hotel has been family-owned for more than 65 years and is centrally located in the Tri-City area that includes the cities of Albany, Schenectady and Troy.

ROCKVILLE, MD. – Ascend Hotel Collection from Choice Hotels International, Inc. announced the addition of The Century House in Latham, New York to its impressive list of member hotels. Ascend Hotel Collection is a network of 128 unique, boutique or historic independent hotels that offer guests a distinctive, one-of-a-kind local experience.

This historic hotel has been family-owned for more than 65 years and is centrally located in the Tri-City area that includes the cities of Albany, Schenectady and Troy.

“The Century House is a remarkable addition to the Ascend Hotel Collection. This well-known property is beloved by the community and its loyal guests,” said Michael Murphy, senior vice president of upscale brands at Choice Hotels International. “The Century House has been a destination for travelers as well as locals for decades because of its commitment not only to delivering a high level of service to guests, but for serving the community outside its doors as well. We are proud to call this hotel a member of the Ascend Hotel Collection.”

The Century House was built in the late 19th century as a residential farmhouse. In 1949, Jim and Dorothy O’Hearn purchased the property and transformed the farmhouse into a restaurant to serve travelers along the only road between New York City and Montreal. From the very first dinner served, The Century House became a member of the community as a public meeting space to share tasty meals, good company and celebrate the life’s milestones.

While the hotel has experienced tremendous growth and success in the past 65 years, it is still family-owned and maintains its elegant appeal as some of the finest accommodations in Latham and Albany. The Century House incorporates the charm of a bed-and-breakfast combined with unique design and soothing décor to create an inviting atmosphere that makes guests feel at home throughout their stay.

“As a family-owned hotel, we’ve been selective in choosing a brand partner and the Ascend Hotel Collection is the perfect fit,” said Colin DeMers, managing partner at The Century House. “The Collection allows us to continue to operate independently but offers a wonderful support group of like-minded hoteliers that we can tap into. We are also excited to be able to offer our guests access to the Choice Privileges loyalty program where they can earn reward points for additional hotel stays with us or other members. This is an exciting time for us and we look forward to our successful journey of providing exceptional guest experiences here at The Century.”
