The perks of opening your own hotel


Sometimes we simply get sick and tired of being in the same job for our whole lives and the idea of going to and from the office every day can feel like a huge drag. If you want to change your career and try something totally new, why not open a hotel, like boutique hotel owner Sigurllaug Sverrisdottir (pictured)? The hotel industry is always booming and it can be a fresh new start for you with a decent income to sustain you through your life. Here are some of the main reasons why you should think about opening a hotel this year.

You’ll have creative control

The beauty of buying and empty hotel to do up and use as your own is the fact that you have a blank canvas to work with and you can really let your creativity shine. If you really enjoy to make new things and decorate rooms, you will love the experience of choosing materials and colour schemes and making sure that the hotel is stunning for anyone who stays. It will be a super fun way to celebrate your style and have some fun with your own ideas.

You can visit trade shows

Trade shows are often thought of as being for the manufacturing industry or for items such as tools and fashion, but there are also shows which give you some inspiration on how to run the best hotel. Hospitality Trade Show for example is one which will allow you to see different companies that offer products and services to your hotel and it will give you some ideas on how to make the space better and to fit your theme.

You have an excuse to travel

Travel might not seem like much of a part of owning a hotel, however if you are successful in running one location you have more than an excuse to travel to find a second one. If you start a small branch of hotels you have the excuse to travel from one to the other and enjoy all of the different landscapes and cityscapes you see along the way. If you like being out of the office and somewhere new then this is ideal for you.

You can get to know people

Every single day as a hotel owner you will be introduced to different people from all over the world when they come to visit you and stay at your hotel for a few days. During this time, you will be able to talk to different people and get to know who they really are and this can be a super fun way to spend your time if you love people. For a social butterfly this is the ideal job for you and you will love every second of it.

You are your own boss

What’s better than being in your own business and setting your own rules? Not having a boss! The best feeling you can have as a hotel owner is the fact that you won’t have a boss to tell you what to do, because you are the boss. Make up your own rules, work at your own pace and create the best working environment you can.
