Hotel Pre Opening Budget sample format

Hospitality facilities are associated with several types of costs. They must be developed and constructed. Once Occupied, they must be operated. And eventually, they must be renovated and modernized. Each of these steps involved its own kind of expenses it is very important to have a proper budget for any hotel

The facilities of the modern hospitality industry vary greatly. Budget and economy lodging operations have relatively simple physical plants, while convention hotels, resort, and luxury hotels may resemble small cities in their complexity. Such differences in complexity and in the overall luxury level of finishes and furniture contribute significantly to the differences in the construction costs of various types of facilities.

The development and construction of a hotel represent a commitment of capital by an owner who expects a return on this investment. This expected return may involve two elements; Operating profit (from the sale of rooms, F& B, meeting services etc.) and real estate appreciation.

To provide both types of return, the facility must be operated and maintained in a manner that maximizes the potential profit and appreciation value of the building. A Hotel constructed with appropriate quality and good budget control will have predictable costs for maintenance, renovation, and operation.
