I worked at Interstate Hotels full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Many local properties have autonomy over their operations. -Local management is empowered to make decisions on day-to-day operations. -Mid-size operator has opportunities to move laterally or promotion. -Variety of different levels of service in lodging (budget, mid-tier, and luxury)

Cons

-Only takes action to improve a property when it has reached a crisis. -Senior management doesn't seem knowledgable of property-level issues. -Technology for systems is outdated. -No reaction to poor employee survey results. -Benefit costs to employees slightly higher than comparable companies.

Advice to Management

Take some serious action on property-level issues that come to your attention. Establish values that are properly communicated and adhered to. Only accept management contracts that are financially feasible--if an owner wants you to run a property with no expenses, no capital improvements, and yield a high profit--simply say 'no.'
