Discussing About the Most Profitable Luxury Hotels

To most individuals, staying at a five-star hotel is the stuff of fantasies. Few people make luxury hotels their permanent residence, but those who realise there's no comparison to having anything you want available at the touch of a button. Many upscale hotel chains strictly restrict their staff from telling visitors "no." For many, staying in a five-star hotel is the closest thing to heaven on earth, with the photo-identification systems that allow staff to instantly recognise return clients and the gourmet meals served right in their rooms.

Investors are aware of the steep price tag associated with all of this extravagance. Luxury hotel room costs can go through the roof; on the weekend in August, the average rate for a five-star hotel in New York City is $351 per night, and many of them cost well over $1,000. Visiting one of the world's most opulent hotels, such as the Burj al Arab, is a pipe dream for most individuals. Luxury hotels have everything a guest could want to feel like a king or queen, including excellent room service and staff attentive to their needs around the clock.

Today's most profitable luxury hotels will go to almost any length to ensure their customers leave delighted. Staying in a five-star hotel can be one of the most unforgettable experiences you'll ever have, thanks to the hotel's gourmet meals, attentive staff, and cutting-edge technology amenities that elevate the quality of service you receive.

Best Western

The Best Western hotel chain is privately owned and operated, and it features three distinct but equally modern hotel brands: Best Western Premier, Best Western Plus, and Best Western. This is one of North America's most prominent hotel chains, with over 2,000 rooms across the United States alone. The company has over 58 million paying customers in the United States and Canada and has won numerous honours for its outstanding customer service. The overall worth of the brand is pegged at $ 6 billion. Best Western Rewards is their greatest asset, having over 35 million members and has helped the company achieve top ranks on the World Report's Best Hotel Rewards Programs.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts

The corporation repurchased 1.2 million shares in Q2 2015 for $105 million, which is less than Marriott spent. This puts the total amount spent on buying back shares in 2015 at $228m. Starwood paid a dividend of $0.375 per share and had earnings per share of $0.84 after stock buybacks. Starwood continues to grow its holdings with this quarter's EBITDA of $311 million and net income of $143 million. This quarter, an additional 14,400 rooms were added to the pipeline. While the quarter saw an increase in RevPAR, revenue fell from the second quarter of 2014 due to currency changes and the separation of Starwood Vacation Ownership.

Four Seasons

Isadore Sharp, a skilled Canadian, founded the luxurious Four Seasons hotel company in Toronto in 1961. The crew at Four Seasons is relentlessly committed to developing their skills to provide visitors with unrivalled service and an experience they will never forget. The company expanded swiftly, and now there are over a hundred Four Seasons hotels across five continents, with backing from well-known backers like Bill Gates.

Four Seasons stands out in particular compared to other hotel chains because it offers its customers a one-of-a-kind experience in each of its properties. Guests in the Maldives, for instance, can charter their very own yacht to cruise the crystal-clear waters and visit the pristine beaches of the Maldives at their leisure. The Four Seasons has everything, from a private plane to an island on the World Heritage List. Hawaii, Marrakesh, Doha, and Bora Bora are just a few places where you may receive the Four Seasons treatment. Suites vary in size and layout based on location, but they all have spacious living areas, high-quality furnishings, and breathtaking views.


Although hotel revenue management may seem difficult and time-consuming at first, mastery is within reach for the motivated individual. Knowing what makes your hotel, market, visitors, and industry tick at any given time requires keeping abreast of the most recent key performance indicators and ratios. Once you have all that information, making accurate performance and profit projections will be much easier. Suppose you want to stay in a five-star hotel but can't afford to pay full price. Reduced pricing isn't popular with shareholders, but everyone needs a reward now and then.
