In addition, the manager will take the lead on developing a perspective in asset management contingency scenarios.

In addition to the capital budget, the team supports the hotel management organization by creating detailed feasibility studies that help potential owners understand our view and expectation of hotel performance, and help our development team “sell” our brands and management services to such owners. The study forms the basis for many of the deal terms (including incentive fee structures) that we include in our management contracts.
