Lodging managers are responsible for the overall operation of lodging facilities. They are responsible for directing and coordinating housekeeping, office administration, marketing and sales, purchasing, security, maintenance, and operation of the front desk and recreational areas while maintaining a profitable operation. They may hire and train staff and ensure their safety and security as well as that of the guests. Within guidelines, managers may set room rates, allocate funds for departments, approve expenditures, and ensure quality standards are met. Managers are responsible for making sure information technology is operational and integrated and used efficiently in all areas of the facility. Lodging managers need to be able to interact well with people including guests and employees.
