How Involved are Hotel Owners in Property-Level Decisions? | By Demian Hodari, Michael J. Turner and Michael C. Sturman

Hospitality Industry News - November 7, 2018 - 12:00pm

This is perplexing because management companies generally insist that hotel management agreements (HMAs) specifically stipulate that the owner should not seek to influence the hotel's general manager (GM). In other words, in exchange for their services, management companies have generally required owners to relinquish involvement in the hotel's day-to-day business. However, hotel owners are increasingly sophisticated and institutional, suggesting they may not be content to remain uninvolved as individual or single-property owners had previously done.
