Question: Module: HSP 203: International Hotels Development and Management

ASSIGNMENT: Wyndham - Interhotel Cherno More Varna
A hotel can benefit a lot from affiliation to a hotel chain. However, not every chain is a suitable partner to a particular hotel, and not every hotel is a suitable partner to a particular chain. In this regard, the aim of this assignment is to evaluate the possibilities for cooperation between a specific hotel chain and an independent hotel through the affiliation of the hotel to the chain.
You have to work in GROUPS of 3-4 students and prepare a group assignment (about 2500 words long) with the structure below. Each team will work on one “hotel chain-hotel” pair. The distribution of students into groups and the allocation of pairs to groups will take place in class. If you do not select a group, you will be administratively distributed into a team by the lecturer.

The assignment should have the following structure:
1. Introduction – brief (400-500 words) critical literature review on hotel chains (20 marks)
2. Analysis of the hotel chain through the lens of Integrated model (“resources-activities-relations” framework) (30 marks)
2.1. Analysis of the hotel chain as an organisation (15 marks)
2.1.1. Resources (tangible, intangible, financial, human resources)
2.1.2. Activities (primary and secondary)
2.1.3. Relationships with main stakeholders (internal, chain stakeholders, external stakeholders)
2.2. Internationalisation process of the hotel chain (15 marks)
2.2.1. Most often used type of affiliation – ownership, management contract, franchising, marketing consortia, leasing
2.2.2. Geographical dispersion
2.2.3. Plans for further expansion (pipelines)
3. Analysis of the individual hotel (10 marks)
3.1. General description of location, product, potential for development
3.2. Advantages and disadvantages for this particular hotel from affiliating to this particular hotel chain
4. Comparison between the individual hotel and the hotel chain (20 marks)
4.1. Select a brand from the portfolio of the chain which you consider as suitable for the independent hotel to be affiliated with
4.2. Compare hotel’s characteristics with brand’s requirements towards its member hotels – what should the hotel adapt/change/develop in order to be affiliated to that brand?
4.3. Specify the most suitable type of affiliation of this hotel to this particular hotel chain’s brand
5. Conclusion – your own decision – if the proposed hotel can be part of this particular chain and why (up to 10 marks)
