    Qualifying & Hiring Hotel Operators
    Identifying & selecting the appropriate hotel band for your property is the most vital decision you could make. At Nashwan Group, we have a systematic approach in selecting the suitable hotel brand for your property based on a tedious scoring system that takes in consideration many factors such as: brand awareness in the region, added value of the brand to your specific location & client base, cost of management fee to you, hidden fees & commitment of the hotel operator to achieve qualitative & quantitative goals.
    At Nashwan Group, we create an RFP for your hotel & invite (5-7) hotel operators, unless you choose to narrow the tendering to specific hotel brands.
    Our Fees can be paid by hotel owner/investor or can be paid by selected hotel operator. It is customary that hotel companies pay consultants a standard fee of USD 40,000 to USD 50,000 based on size and number of stars on the hotel.
    Needless to say, at Nashwan Group we put our client’s interest before monetary compensation we receive from hotel operators. Therefore, we present hotel owners/investors with a “matrix” listing the pros & cons of each management proposal from each hotel company followed by our careful analysis to enable owners/investors to make the appropriate decision in selecting the best operator.
