HONOLULU, Oct. 10, 2012-- Castle Resorts & Hotels today announced it has launched a new mobile website for its portfolio of hotel and resort condominium properties. Visitors to the site are now able to easily and conveniently access hotel information from any Internet-enabled mobile device. The mobile website can be used to obtain hotel contact information, directions, or learn about special offers and promotions. Castle Resorts & Hotels manages 21 hotels, condominium resorts and villas on five Hawaiian Islands, Saipan and New Zealand. To experience the new site visit www.castleresorts.com from any mobile device.
"We recognize most travelers now carry at least one web-capable mobile phone or other device and need a fast and easy way to access maps or other property information while en route," said Steve Woods, director of eCommerce for Castle. "The days of printing every piece of traveler information are over, and we want to help our guests enjoy the freedom that comes with smart phones and tablets."
Castle's new mobile website utilizes technology that recognizes when a user arrives at the site by mobile device. As a guest visits www.castleresorts.com from his or her phone or tablet, a mobile-friendly version of the website provides a simplified and speedy interface including all of the major functions of the full website for the mobile user.
In the second phase of this mobile launch, Castle Resorts & Hotels will add the ability to book hotel rooms and resort condominium units through the mobile website, allowing guests the freedom to book their stay from any location with cellular network or WiFi service. The release and further development of this mobile site is a demonstration of Castle's continued commitment to maximizing guest comfort and convenience through the use of technology.
