In a hotel, the daily operations 29 CHAPTER 2 FOUNDATIONS OF FINANCIAL ANALYSIS provide products and services to guests, including the rooms department, food and beverage outlets, gift shop, and any other department that produces a sales transaction with a guest. Numbers used in financial analysis have to come from somewhere, and that is the daily operation of the business. 2. Accounting prepares the numbers and provides financial reports and statements. At the end of the day, week, or month, the numbers resulting from all operations and activities are collected, summarized, and reported by the accounting department.

For example, if we use occupancy as the main measurement of maximizing room revenue, running a hotel with 99% occupancy but with a $25 average rate is not maximizing room revenue. The hotel is probably selling its rooms too cheap. Likewise, if a hotel has a $175 average rate but is only running a 15% occupancy, it also is not maximizing room revenue. It is probably pricing its rooms too high. If we use occupancy as the most important measure, the hotel in our first example is doing an excellent job and our second hotel is doing a terrible job.

Each department separates the business into different and distinct operations, and the revenues and expenses involved in operating those departments are shown on the Department P&L Statement. These departments are called revenue centers or profits centers. The largest profit departments in a hotel are rooms, restaurants, beverages, and banquets. The basic profit formula—revenue minus expenses—can be applied, but with more detail: Rooms Department Transient, Group, and Contract Revenues Less Expenses Wages Benefits Other Operating Expenses Equals Rooms Department Profit Restaurant Department Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Revenues Less Expenses Cost of Sales Wages Benefits Other Operating Expenses Equals Restaurant Department Profit All the department profits are added up to total hotel profit.
