Paid Publication HVS Guide to Hotel Management Contracts (Regional Report)

The HVS Guide to Hotel Management Contracts presents the results of an extensive review of hotel management agreements conducted across the Americas (USA, Canada and South America), Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA), and the Asia Pacific (APAC) regions, in addition to offering an in-depth understanding of the key terms and clauses of such agreements. The global survey sample set comprises 475 hotel management contracts representing close to 120,000 rooms and 55 first-tier (branded) hotel management companies, in addition to several second-tier (third-party) management companies and few independent operators.

All primary geographic regions depicted in this survey – Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific – have over 100 hotel management contracts, which we believe is a credible threshold to effectively represent the nature of operating terms and conditions prevalent in these areas. Moreover, each regional sub-section is accompanied with a foreword by an HVS expert practicing in the area, and the sub-set results are supported by expert discussions and insights, where applicable, to provide the reader with useful and relevant information.
