Design Brief

Among the first tasks of the hotel development process is to establish the design brief or programme for the proposed hotel. This is a cooperative effort, based on the feasibility study with

input from the owner, management company, architect, and numerous consultants.

Even at the earliest phase of a project it is valuable to know the approximate amount of space dedicated to the principal functions in a hotel, especially the approximate balance between guestrooms and public/support areas. This varies from over 90% guestroom space in budget properties and many motels, where there is limited or no food and beverage, meeting, or back-of-house functions, to less than 65% guestroom space in large convention and resort properties, where the public and support functions are essential to enabling the property to gain market share.
