What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“When we decided to create Hotel Magnate, we wanted to craft an awesome experience for all players. EA will allow us to receive valuable feedback from you - the players - as we work alongside our community and improve the game as we go. We strongly believe that, with your support, we can reach new heights and create a fun and unique experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to stay in Early Access until we feel the game has all of its core features but expect the full release by the end of 2024. However, the development of the game may shift based on added features and player feedback.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are planning to add more content to Hotel Magnate and implement different furniture themes and management features, this will bring creative variety to the game. We would also like to add a fully polished campaign to the game where you will be able to progress from a very small hotel to a fully fleshed-out resort.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We’ve worked hard on the systems that allow players to build and customize their hotels. Our sandbox mode is fully operational so you can use your creativity to create and manage the best hotel around. Since we still would like to add a full campaign with more customizable content, the price of the game may increase as it nears its full release. We want to price the game fairly based on the amount of content and the amount of work that was put into it.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Since we still would like to add a full campaign with more customizable content, the price of the game may increase as it nears its full release. We want to price the game fairly based on the amount of content and the amount of work that was put into it.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community feedback is extremely important for us and, therefore, we would like to work closely with players in every step of our development process. Everyone is welcome to join us on our Discord server and offer any kind of suggestions. You can also vote for features to be worked on with our feature voting platform or discuss them with the devs or other fans in the Steam discussion forums.”

About This Game

Hotel Magnate is a tycoon/simulator game that gives you the tools to build and manage your own hotel, motel, luxury resort, or shabby shack. It is whatever you make of it.

Beginning with nothing but dreams and an empty lot, you can shape your hotel to your liking. Pick from an assortment of rooms and facilities that will grow both your floorspace and your revenue stream. Build restaurants for the foodies, day spas for the vacationers, and conference halls for the workaholics. There’s a wide range of rooms to choose from.

Once you’ve laid down the foundations, it’s time to pick out the decor. That’s right; you get to customize everything down to the furniture and decorations. Make it wacky, make it classy, or change up the theme from room to room. You will attract different types of guests as your hotel grows and its rating changes, bringing new opportunities and challenges. Remember, the customer is usually wrong, but you’re in the service industry now. Get your hotel in shape, slap on your best smile, and be prepared for whatever comes.

  • Build, furnish, and oversee your own hotel
  • Tend to your guests' needs and demands, and attract wealthier clientele by improving facilities and securing better ratings
  • Hire employees to clean, serve, manage, and maintain your hotel
  • Take control of the inner-workings of your hotel by managing bedrooms, wages, restaurants, and many other operations
  • Become adept at marketing to attract different types of guests and generate buzz

The facilities you provide have a major impact on the types of guests your hotel attracts. Each facility attracts a certain type of client, but might convince others to stay well away. Are you thinking about creating a health and wellness resort? Gym and spa facilities will go a long way to attract health-conscious holidaymakers.

  • Guest rooms and en-suite bathrooms
  • Restaurants
  • Kitchens and laundry
  • Bars/Nightclubs
  • Pools, gyms, spas
  • Staff-rooms
  • & Much More!

Hire staff to keep your hotel running smoothly. Be sure to pick the right people for the various positions, as each will have different skill levels and wage demands.
Your hotel will be frequented by many guests, including but not limited to:
  • Business people
  • Backpackers
  • Partygoers
  • Families
  • Luxury seekers
  • Health nuts
  • A strange fellow named George

Don’t forget to keep an eye on your hotel rating! If you offer poor accommodation to your guests, do not expect them to be friendly when they put their reviews online. Ratings will naturally affect how many clients you receive in the future, as well as the type.

Hotel Magnate provides players with an enormous amount of customization and choice, allowing you to create a piece of paradise or a nightmarish motel. Your decisions will affect every aspect of play, so be prepared to deal with the consequences.
