Hotel management structure

The size and magnitude of a hotel management structure varies
significantly depending on the size and along with features and function of the
hotel. A small hotel normally consists of a small core management team
consisting of the General Manager and a few key department managers who
directly handle day-to-day operations. On the contrary, a large full service hotel
often operates more like a large corporation with an executive board headed by
the General Manager and consisting of key directors serving as heads of
individual hotel departments. Each department normally consists of subordinate
line-level managers and supervisors who handle day-to-day operations.
Management
Hotel management is a globally accepted professional career field and academic
field of study. Degree programs such as hospitality management studies, a
business degree, and/or certification programs formally prepare hotel managers
for industry practice.
Most hotel establishments consist of a General Manager who serves as the head
executive (often referred to as the "Hotel Manager"), department heads who
oversee various departments within a hotel, middle managers, administrative
staff, and line-level supervisors. The organizational chart and volume of job
positions and hierarchy varies by hotel size, function, and is often determined
by hotel ownership and managing companies.
