Feasibility Studies

We examine with objective criteria the viability prospects of a hotel investment whether it pertains to the creation of a new project or the buy-out of an existing one, in order to reduce the business risk of the investor. The study will provide a powerful tool that will highlight the competitive advantages, the financial capabilities, the challenges and the limitations, helping the investor to decide whether the business plan is viable.

We prepare the study of the market environment both at macroeconomic and microeconomic level.

We conduct a local market survey by examining the individual characteristics, the trends and the competition in order to determine how these factors may affect the investment.

We prepare a supply and demand analysis study where we position the proposed investment among the competition taking into account factors such as number of rooms and facilities, services, strong brand name, customer mix, occupancy, average room rates and total revenues.

We prepare financial forecasts and detailed profit and loss reports budgets and we evaluate the results of the financial metrics of the investment.

Hotel pre-opening planning

Lamway Hotel Management Group has a significant expertise in assuming the full implementation of a hotel investment starting from a zero basis. From the initial project conception until its opening or its continued operation, our services cover the entire process. With detailed analysis and recommendations concerning:

  • The basic concept of the project, developing it both from architectural and aesthetic point of view and from an operating standpoint.
  • The selection of architectural firms, construction companies, etc. for the design and configuration of the facilities, the functionality of the areas and the compliance with standards.
  • The market positioning of the project.
  • The standard and specifications for the purchase of FF&E and the selection of equipment suppliers.
  • The organization of work completion through deadline schedules.
  • The briefing of the ownership for the legislation pertaining to the operation of hotels and all the necessary measures that should be taken to meet the prerequisites.

We can provide advice on all of the above or on selected services of each phase of the development process, both for new constructions and major renovations that will create the need for hotel repositioning.

We connect the capital investment with the development of objectives and the operational realities. We ensure that the architectural vision is compatible with the original concept, is consistent with the budget and covers its operating needs and objectives, including the operating costs of the market positioning and pricing.

Hotel Operations Planning

For newly built hotels that are just beginning their operation or even for existing hotel companies who wish to acquire a more efficient management of their resources, based on proven professional standards, it is necessary the development of a Hotel Operations Plan.

The study begins with the clarification on the part of the owner of the expectations and vision for the business. Afterwards, a detailed business plan is created that will highlight with specific actions and goals the direction that should be followed.

A marketing plan will be created with major topics, the analysis of the product, the area and the market, finding the most appropriate market segments, considering the existing competition both in the broader area where it is to operate and the local area, the marketing strategy with defined objectives, the SWOT analysis and the advertising plan.

The sales plan follows by setting room price per period and per segment and the sales promotion of the hotel domestically and abroad.

A detailed operating manual will set the standard of operations for each department and job position and the appropriate pricing for each product and service will be determined.

The staff requirements, the duties and responsibilities along with their working schedule will be defined.

A detailed payroll budget and a detailed budget profit and loss report will be prepared.

Sales & Marketing Management

In an ever growing, competitive environment such as the hospitality sector, the challenges related to the marketing strategy and sales are ongoing.

On the other hand, independent hoteliers often lack the resources, the budget or the loyalty programs of major international hotel companies. Therefore, they lose a market share from the competition and they are not able to exploit the true potential of their revenues.

Hotel Leasing

Lamway leases selected hotels, with long term contracts, that match its standards and specifications. By using this method, property owners are released from the responsibility of operating the business, while their property becomes a member of a hotel chain with sufficient expertise to upgrade the business in terms of quality standards of operation, provided services and of brand awareness.

In most cases, the properties receive a major renovation plan in order to cope with the ever increasing competition which leads to a significant increase of style, quality of services and total turnover.
