THPT Comment: For the past twenty years we have had all types of Hotel Management Companies, from total management, leaving the owner completely free of the day-to-day involvement in managing his or her asset, simply collecting a rent, or NOI – Nett Operating Income…to this more hybrid type of “operational support” external consultancy from folks like Jessey Bal, with previous hotel experience.
