Pay for hotel managers ranges greatly. Although this can reach into the six-figure salary range, although entry-level roles may be below this. This reflects their critical role and sometimes stressful responsibilities. By developing their reputation in the profession, hotel managers can increase their prospects. They also may have greater earning power if they decide to relocate and live abroad, where they can be compensated more in resorts or other popular holiday locations. With experience and seniority, they can become regional managers.
As a hotel manager, your level of experience and applicable skills can have a significant impact on your earning potential. If you aspire to manage a luxury property, it's essential to gain hospitality experience in 4 and 5-star hotels. A degree in hotel management will also give you a competitive edge and should help you secure a higher base pay rate.
Another way to increase your hotel manager salary is to hone your skills in budgeting, financial performance, and risk management. Taking a management training course can help you effectively lead housekeepers, front desk staff, and maintenance workers. Excellent customer service is another key skill; learning to anticipate guest needs, communicating politely, and implementing touches that offer guests an exceptional experience can also boost your earning potential.
To negotiate a higher salary as a hotel manager, you'll need to highlight to the hotel owner the ways in which you are an asset to the property. Start with hard numbers: lay out how much you've increased revenue, repeat bookings, occupancy rate, housekeeping speed, and quality control ratings. Or, point out a reduction in employee turnover and customer complaints during your tenure. Your charisma will also play a key role, so highlight how you have motivated the hotel staff. When negotiating for new hotel manager jobs, use accomplishments from past positions.
Some achievements are harder to quantify but no less important. Tell the owner how you've maintained brand standards, improved employee training, and transformed marketing. Presenting a compelling case could earn you a 10% to 20% increase.
