Hotel and Motel Managers

Advancement Prospects

The average tenure of a general manager is between six and seven years; those who have worked as a GM for 10 years or more usually view their job as a lifetime commitment. Managers who leave the profession usually advance to the regional or even national area of hotel and motel management, such as property management or the administrative or financial departments of the lodging chain. Some may opt to open their own hotel or motel franchises or even operate a small inn or bed and breakfast. The management skills learned as a general manager can be successfully utilized in any avenue of business.
