Managing Facilities provides a clear introduction to the concepts, development and application of managing facilities in hotels. Premises and services operations management are considered through the application of generic management techniques.

In hotels, buildings, land, assets, people and services are essential resources which need to be managed to meet organizational objectives. Through practical techniques and examples, Jowett and Jones show how these facilities can be continuously improved to increase competitiveness and meet the ever changing needs of the customer.

Managing Facilities is:
* the only UK book to reflect modern facilities management practices in hospitality
* full of practical examples
* a reference source and introduction in one format

Managing Facilities is a concise guide for hotel, hospitality and facilities managers. It is also an excellent text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of hospitality management.
