When it comes to hospitality construction, location matters the most. Each market tends to have its own land and real estate value, construction costs, and demand and supply characteristics.

Therefore, it’s crucial to conduct thorough research of the market for potential increase in property value, revenue, and market opportunities before finalizing the location.

Incorporate a Restaurant

The modern hotel design most often includes a restaurant. First of all, it is a feature that attracts guests. Also, a restaurant can bring local patrons, adding to the profitability of the hotel. Finally, if designed well, it can lend unique character and atmosphere to the hotel. The restaurant venue in the hotel design should be planned in the early phases to ensure it will flow with the rest of the facility.

Mixed-Use Hotels

Today’s hotel industry is seeing an increase in the popularity of mixed-use hotels. A hospitality construction project that involves residential and commercial use means better in-house business, shared operational costs, and increased market opportunities.
