The Ascend Collection Adds the Èilan Hotel and Spa

The Ascend Collection has added Èilan Hotel and Spa, a Bluegreen Resort to its properties.

The resort is located north of the San Antonio Riverwalk and offers guests 165-rooms.

“From the 36-hole La Cantera Golf Club designed by Arnold Palmer to the elegant spa, there’s something for everyone at the Èilan Hotel and Spa,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands portfolio at Choice Hotels. “This property is the perfect representation of the Ascend Hotel Collection, known for providing inspiring and unforgettable guest experiences at more than 200 properties worldwide.”

Guests will get to enjoy Choice Privileges loyalty rewards program. In 2013, the two organizations formed an alliance between Choice Hotels International and Bluegreen Vacations which allows members of the Choice Privileges loyalty program and Bluegreen’s Traveler Plus program to seamlessly exchange reward points between the two programs.

“Bluegreen Vacations has successfully identified key opportunities to offer one-of-a-kind vacation experiences. Our collaboration with Choice Hotels highlights some of our most unique and exclusive resorts within our portfolio,” said Shawn B. Pearson, President and CEO of Bluegreen Vacations.
