New Castle to manage two New York properties

New Castle Hotels & Resorts is set to manage the adjacent Hilton Garden Inn Riverhead and Residence Inn by Marriott Long Island East End in Riverhead, N.Y., the gateway to Long Island’s Wine Country. 

“New Castle emerged as the clear choice to manage the Riverhead Portfolio due to their boutique scale, owner-operator approach and incredibly successful track record developing and managing premium, select-service properties in leisure-oriented markets,” said Lee Browning, Sr., CEO of Browning Hotel Properties, which owns the two hotels, in a statement. “After only a few weeks, the depth of New Castle’s above-property management capabilities, including revenue management, e-commerce and digital marketing, human resources and accounting have become evident and greatly improved financial transparency and employee morale.”

The two hotels are located on the North Shore of Long Island, approximately 20 miles from The Hamptons and just a few minutes from Long Island’s Wine Country. 

The Hilton Garden Inn Riverhead has 114 guestrooms along with an outdoor patio and gathering area with a fireplace. The hotel also has a restaurant serving daily breakfast, dinner and room service, and a full-service bar. An indoor pool, indoor and outdoor whirlpools are open year-round and the property also has 2,100 square feet of meeting space.

The Residence Inn Long Island East End is an all-suite hotel geared towards extended stays. The 131-suite property has two pools, outdoor patio space with a fireplace, a full-service bar, indoor and outdoor whirlpools that are open year-round and three event rooms. New Castle Hotels & Resorts is partnering with Open Ocean Creative to renovate and rebrand the 6,000-square-foot Elegance Ballroom at the hotel.
