ORLANDO, Fla.—Charlestowne Hotels has assumed management of the resort operations at one of the Orlando area’s condominium resorts, the 192 unit Runaway Beach Club located in Kissimmee. Charlestowne was first contacted by owners seeking a change of management in spring of 2011 and began operating the resort in spring of this year. Charlestowne Hotels manages a large number of luxury, boutique, and independent properties throughout the Southeast, as well as several chain affiliated hotels.
A few examples of the recent changes and improvements include a new website with interactive features for both owners and guests; a completely remodeled lobby area boasting a new front desk space and café bar; 24-hour guest services; dance and fitness classes; and new kids programs.
In an announcement, Owners Association president, Don Abernathy, states that, “It was a huge undertaking to change management, but Charlestowne Hotels was accommodating to our concerns and has worked very hard to turn things around at the resort. We are just starting to see the positive impact of the change. The other owners and I look forward to seeing the transformation completed.”
