The Castle Group Becomes Castle Hospitality Group

The Castle Group Inc. has rebranded as Castle Hospitality Group to better reflect its position as “a cutting-edge, innovative hospitality company that uses technology to differentiate itself from competitors.”

The rebrand is a direct result of the company’s significant investment in technology and resources that allows it to operate as a hotel and resort condominium management company as well as a vacation rental management company, the company reports.

Castle Hospitality Group’s exclusive new technology platform provides a sustainable competitive advantage; one that no other hospitality company in Hawaii currently offers, according to the company. It enables access to the largest inventory distribution in Hawaii and the ability to sell by both individual unit and room category. The exclusive distribution platform also offers direct connectivity with Airbnb, HomeAway, and VRBO.
