Hotel Management

 
 

20 Years of Hotel Management Excellence

Hotel management has been at the core of Schulte Hospitality Group since day one. Success in the hospitality business may be measured by financial performance, but it is always grounded in customer service. Our primary customers are the investors and property owners who put their faith in our ability to meet and exceed their financial expectations. While we have perfected tried and true strategies over our decades of experience, each property has unique strengths and opportunities so we are diligent with strategic planning and metric-based asset management to ensure the right formula for success for each asset.

We provide a full range of hotel management services for all hotel types ranging from large full service hotels to our extended stay hotels to our boutique hotels.

SHG assumes management responsibility and control as the agent of the owner, with specified comprehensive duties, such as: complete direction and supervision of all staff; contract negotiation; preparing accurate and timely financial reports; establishing ongoing training programs; preparing tax filings and government reporting; and recruiting, hiring, as well as training of all on-site staff.

 
 

Accounting

 

Few areas are as important to planning and decision making as efficient accounting systems. Up-to-date information on occupancy; room rates; food and beverage costs; and revenue, are frequently analyzed to allow management to more efficiently guide the operations of a property.

Our expertise in financial planning for the owner is reflected in our commitment to develop accurate operating forecasts, cash flow projections, capital expenditure plans and recommendations enabling each owner to make timely and well-informed investment decisions.

SHG submits a monthly, detailed profit and loss statement showing the results of operations for the preceding calendar month, the operating year to date and a comparison with the same month of the preceding year. All such profit and loss statements are prepared in accordance with the Uniform System of Hotel Accounts.

Operations

 

SHG handles all aspects of operating a successful and efficient hotel. This includes recruiting, hiring and training all on-site staff; designing and installing all operating, control and reporting systems; preparing pre-opening and first-year operating budgets, as well as cash flow projections; and creating comprehensive sales action, pre-opening marketing and advertising plans.

For a new hotel opening its doors, operational planning starts early. Staffing needs are evaluated; efficient operating procedures are developed; food and beverage service is planned; costs and revenues are projected and analyzed; and on-site management is selected. When the property is in final stages of construction, operational testing begins.

And, by the time the hotel opens its doors, it can begin to operate efficiently and profitably.

Sales & Revenue Management

 

Our commitment to excellence is supported by comprehensive training programs, based on our belief that every hotel employee must be sales oriented. Sales goals are uniquely established for each sales associate. From the moment of hiring and ongoing, we provide strategic training to our sales teams that incorporate our company's sales and marketing philosophies on building business. We believe in the "back-to-basics" of calling on our customers, personally, so we may capture and retain their business.
