Overseas hotel investment and management

According to a survey by Tranio.com, the second most popular foreign commercial property type in 2015, after flats, was hotels. However, the hotel business is complex. In addition to finding a suitable property, the most complicated issue an investor usually faces is managing this property. Tranio.com tells how the hotel property management is executed and the profit is divided between the owner and the operator. In short, the owner can either manage the hotel independently or hire a management company.

Independent management

If the investor runs a hotel business independently, it is necessary to calculate beforehand the supposed income and expenses. Being directly involved in management, the investor does not have to share profit, which remains after paying the taxes and maintenance costs.

Management company services

As a rule, management companies offer their services only if a hotel has at least 70 rooms, as a smaller room supply will not enable the company to pay salaries to their employees and secure profits for itself.

Management company types

 Usually, those acting as management companies are the hotel operators who often hold large international chain franchises. Such companies specialise in management and successfully turn a profit. There are two types of operators:

1) Branded operators are branded companies that take charge of hotel management. They include Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott and Starwood, to name a few. Branded operators generally manage large hotels.

2) Independent operators are management companies which focus on management only, not providing a brand. For instance, the U.S. major independent operators include GF Management, Interstate Hotels & Resorts and White Lodging Services. Usually, the owners of small and medium-sized hotels are those who use the services of independent operators.
