To negotiate a higher salary as a hotel manager, you'll need to convince the hotel owner of your value to the property. Start with hard numbers: lay out how much you've increased revenue, repeat bookings, occupancy rate, housekeeping speed, and quality control ratings. Or, point to a reduction in employee turnover and customer complaints during your tenure. When negotiating for new hotel manager jobs, use accomplishments from past positions.
Some achievements are harder to quantify but no less important. Tell the owner how you've maintained brand standards, improved employee training, and transformed marketing. Presenting a compelling case could earn you a 10% to 20% increase.
