As a hotel comprises a large number of staff responsible for different areas of work, there is a
need to coordinate the activities of the different staff and departments. Each worker has to clearly
understand their duties and responsibilities, as well as how their work fits in with that of the other staff or
departments of the hotel.
The relationship between the different positions within a hotel can be represented by means of an
organizational structure or hierarchical chart. This gives a pictorial display of the relationships and how
they interlink with each other. The organizational structure enables the manager to know the position of
staff within the hotel, as well as who is responsible for whom. It also gives the employee a clear picture
of who is their boss. Figure 2.1 shows the organizational chart of a small hotel.
As you can see Figure 2.1, this organizational chart shows where and how each department fits
into overall organization of a hotel. In addition, its illustrated the division of responsibilities and lines of
authority. For example, the hotel in Figure 2.1 is divided into six major sections, each with a distinct area
of responsibility. The front office, for instance, may well be responsible for the selling and marketing of
rooms, the handlings of bookings, guest accounts, wages and suppliers invoices, and many other clerical
duties. The storekeeper can also be responsible for the purchasing of all food and beverage items,
housekeeping supplies and very often the stationery. The chart also shows that in this small hotel each
department is directly responsible to the manager or owner. Because of the complexity a hotels
organizational structure will vary according to the size and style of operation. Figure 2.2 illustrates


Front Office





Room Attendants





Figure 2.1 Organizational of a small hotel

The organizational of a large international hotel. If you compare it with that of a small hotel
(Figure2.1), you will see that the structures of the two are quite different. The increase in size of the hotel
means that very often there is a corporate level of management, which makes all the long term future
plans for the hotel. These plans and strategies are then passed down to the hotel manager (or general
manager) for implementation. Again because of the size of the property, there are more, very specialist
departments, such as human resources, purchasing, accounts and training.
A major difference between a small hotel and a large hotel is that, in a small hotel, the manager
may also be the owner, while in a large international hotel, the owner may be in the board of directors. In
this case it is the board of directors which is responsible for formulating the goals of company and
carrying out long-term planning. In such hotels, it is rare for the manager to be the owner. However, it is
the manager who is responsible for the implementation of the goals set by the board of directors.
