Paid Publication HVS U.S. Franchise Fee Guide, 2023 Edition

The HVS U.S. Franchise Fee Guide is a study authored by industry experts and based on extensive research and analysis of the hotel franchising industry. Selecting an appropriate franchise affiliation for a property should include extensive research and investigation by an investor.

Our findings encompass a total of 91 hotel brands, as franchisors for 20 economy, 30 midscale, 19 upper-midscale, 21 upscale, and 18 first-class brands participated in this annual analysis. The study highlights the importance of partnering with the right franchise company and is an essential resource for anyone interested in investing in the hotel industry or looking to expand their existing portfolio.

Hotels are complicated investments. The information presented in this guide was developed to provide insight into franchise-fee structures and should not be relied upon by an investor for any purpose other than as a preliminary resource. The study results are not necessarily indicative of the impact a brand may have on an individual hotel’s overall profitability because the benefits of the franchise affiliations have not been analyzed, only the costs. Furthermore, the study does not reflect or address the operating results of any one brand or any particular brand affiliation upon any single hotel property.

Our U.S. Franchise Fee Guide is meant to illustrate a basic comparison among franchise fees charged by participants. HVS has extensive experience with assisting clients in selecting the appropriate franchise affiliation for their proposed or existing hotels. Our services also include assisting with or managing the negotiations in coordination with experienced attorneys and other industry professionals.

The Best Seat in the House is a Cheap Seat
