Dedicated support for
hotel performance & enhancement
Expert in hotel performance audit, business planning & monitoring of hotel operators for investors & funds
As an expert in the hospitality industry, we assist our investor clients in implementing the most appropriate strategy to enhance the value and performance of their hotel assets in line with their business plan. On a practical level, we guide and challenge hotel operators on economic, technical and operational aspects.
As the missing link between the investor and the hotel operator, Honotel MDO helps to ensure that all interests of both parties converge and create maximum value.
Based on the Honotel Group’s proven expertise in hotel operations, our tailor-made support offer dedicated to asset analysis and improvement is based on a set of rigorous processes. In order to assist our clients who are business and premises investors or property investors (SCPI, OPCI, etc.) in achieving the objectives set out in the business plan, our project is divided into 4 phases:
- Asset audit
- Business plan & 360° strategic plan
- Monthly reporting for business and premises investors
- Analysis of annual performance for property investors
Support for hotel performance & enhancement
We then issue an opinion on the quality of the asset and its management in its environment and recommend avenues of direction for work to optimise the situation if necessary.
While the economic, technical and operational dimensions of these issues are taken into account, the nature, cost and timing of the actions to be taken to achieve the objectives defined by the 5-year asset vision are challenged.
In addition, the strategic plan makes it possible to determine performance indicators (KPIs) and to have steering tools to challenge the hotel operator on the ground.
Case study: support for a leading institutional investor
In 2016, the asset management department of a leading institutional investor entrusted Honotel MDO with a project to analyse and improve one of its assets: a 4-star Parisian hotel with over 400 rooms. We helped them to define a strategy for the hotel’s performance and development and since then we have been monitoring the international hotel operator responsible for its implementation on a daily basis.
State of play & projects accomplished
Between 2016 and 2019, the hotel’s EBITDAR increased by 21%.
To achieve this, we began our project with a detailed audit of this large Parisian hotel, highlighting its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Then we built a 360° strategic plan to enable the owner’s the business plan to be carried out. It includes our five-year vision for the asset and its marketing, management and work programme objectives.
By challenging the hotel operator on the flexibility of its average pricing policy for this asset, we have achieved excellent performance with very strong growth in occupancy and market share between 2016 and 2019. Our management of budget negotiations and human resources policy, in particular, have also been very beneficial.
We use our expertise to help investors maximise their performance. Through Honotel’s dual expertise in investment and hotel management, we can assist investors with a wide range of business issues, such as opening a hotel or bringing a public establishment (ERP) into compliance.
