Lifestyle Independent

In recent years, the hotel industry has become littered with tired buzzwords, desperately beckoning guests to enjoy curated and local authenticity at their boutique accommodations. With so many arms outstretched to grab hold of the lifestyle trend, few stop to contemplate what style of life they are even offering. That’s where we come in. Charlestowne helps hotels to answer who they are by unpacking the more important question: why. A hotel’s why is its religion, the source of motivation, a promise of its intentions that drives and guides behavior. Whether your property is branded or independent, we use its inherent identity in developing a service experience that delivers a desired lifestyle.

Soft Brand & Brands

We always assess soft brands and branded concepts with an independent hotel mindset and develop unique plans that deliver the best service style and operational model while adhering to brand standards. Taking a thoughtful, highly individualized approach, we proactively lead marketing and revenue management as if the asset were independent and then seamlessly adjust our strategies to leverage the brand’s distribution system, national sales, marketing, and loyalty programs. In addition to our longstanding reputation for independent hotel management, we also have 40 years of experience managing dozens of soft and branded hotels over the years. Currently, we manage over 13 branded hotels and have deep knowledge working with all brands, including IHG, Hilton, Marriott, Choice Hotels, Best Western and Wyndham.

Condo Hotels

Condo hotels are in a league of their own, but it’s a game we’ve grown up playing. Regardless of service level or location, all condo hotels require a complex set of relationships and agreements to function properly and maximize profit. Condo hotel owners invest money, time, and energy into their property. We hold our responsibility to maximize and safeguard their units and the homeowner’s association in the highest regard. We will couple proven practices with customized efforts to drive revenue for each unit owner.
