Revised Hospitality Law Textbook Alerts Hoteliers to Legal Issues
Understanding Hospitality Law is divided into six sections for easy reference. They are:
- Some Basic Legal Principles Governing Hospitality Operations
- The Hotel-Guest Relationship
- The Hotel’s Duties to the Guest and Others
- Restaurants, Food Service, and Bars
- The Hotel and Its Employees
- Laws Relating to General Hotel Operation
Each of the book’s 40 chapters concludes with “Important Points for Management,” a section that summaries the basic legal principles discussed in that chapter.
