Concept Hospitality Pvt. Ltd.
Interface between Owners & Operators :
Owners have always had to rely on the efforts and goodwill of hotel management groups to manage the day-to-day operation of a hotel without, in most cases having the benefit of experienced representation and input. As a result, many hotel investments are regarded as poor investments because of a lower ROI (return on investment) to the owner. Actually, an improved profit which is definitely achievable remains hidden and unavailable to the owner. Concept Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. is staffed by hotel professionals skilled at identifying profit potential and extracting it for the benefit of the owner. Concept Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. will not manage the day-to-day operations of the hotel; it will supervise the management company, provide the highest quality pooled professional resource which is capable of discovering new profit opportunities, cost savings and operational advantages. Concept Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. will achieve the owner's aims and at the same time maintain a harmonious and professional relationship with the operator.
