Overview: Game Features

Hotel Magnate

Hotel Magnate is a tycoon/simulator game that gives you the tools to build and manage your own hotel, motel, luxury resort, or shabby shack. It is whatever you make of it.

Beginning with nothing but dreams and an empty lot, you can shape your hotel to your liking. Pick from an assortment of rooms and facilities that will grow both your floorspace and your revenue stream. Build restaurants for the foodies, day spas for the vacationers, and conference halls for the workaholics. There’s a wide range of rooms to choose from.

Once you’ve laid down the foundations, it’s time to pick out the decor. That’s right, you get to customise everything down to the furniture and decorations. Make it wacky, make it classy, or change up the theme from room to room. You will attract different types of guests as your hotel grows and its rating changes, bringing new opportunities and challenges. Remember, the customer is usually wrong, but you’re in the service industry now. Get your hotel in shape, slap on your best smile, and be prepared for whatever comes.

FEATURES:

  • Build, furnish, and oversee your own multi-level hotel
  • Tend to your guests' needs and demands, and attract wealthier clientele by improving facilities and securing better ratings
  • Hire employees to clean, serve, manage, and maintain your hotel
  • Take control of the inner-workings of your hotel by managing room prices, wages, restaurants, and many other operations
  • Become adept at marketing to attract more types of guests and generate buzz

 

CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES:


In Hotel Magnate, your decisions have consequences. Something as simple as selecting which supplier to purchase towels from, or the price of drinks, can have a significant impact on your business. More luxurious fittings will bring you wealthier guests that are harder to please, whilst lowering the price of alcohol may attract trouble.

Here’s a scenario:
You have decided to lower the price of alcoholic beverages, which has resulted in an increase in sales and guest turnover. However, you didn’t foresee your hotel becoming known as a cheap dive or sleazy resort, attracting a younger crowd that has a penchant for partying and property damage. Make your business decisions wisely!

ROOMS AND FACILITIES:


The facilities you provide have a major impact on the types of guests your hotel attracts. Each facility attracts a certain type of client, but might convince others to stay well away. Are you thinking about creating a health and wellness resort? Gym and spa facilities will go a long way to attract health-conscious holidaymakers. Hoping to make your hotel a family destination? Offer a good balance between adult and child activities. Placing a playground next to a bar isn’t the most conventional approach, but worn-out parents might view it as pure genius.

  • Guest rooms and en-suite bathrooms
  • Restaurants
  • Kitchens and laundry
  • Bars/nightclubs

  • & Much More!

GUESTS AND STAFF:


Hire staff to keep your hotel running smoothly. Be sure to pick the right people for the various positions, as each will have different skill levels and wage demands. You can even create your own individual staff bios!


Your hotel will be frequented by many guests, including but not limited to:

  • Business people
  • Backpackers
  • Partygoers
  • Families
  • Luxury seekers
  • Health nuts
  • A strange fellow named George


HOTEL RATING: 

Don’t forget to keep an eye on your hotel rating! If you offer poor accommodation to your guests, do not expect them to be friendly when they put their reviews online. Ratings will naturally affect how many clients you receive in the future, as well as the type.

Hotel Magnate provides players with an enormous amount of customisation and choice, allowing you to create a piece of paradise or a nightmarish motel. Your decisions will affect  every aspect of play, so be prepared to deal with the consequences.
