Hotel Contracts To Lease or Not to Lease?
Hotel managing companies date back to the early 1900s. Back then, the normal method to supply management services was through total property leases by which the operator leased the hotel from the owner. It was only between 1950 and 1960, following the global hotel expansion, that management agreements were created to provide a buffer against the operating risks associated with unknown uncertainties in foreign countries. In this article, we set out the pros and cons of leases and hotel management agreements, give an example of how they impact on hotel value and discuss the best option for different investors.
