Abstract

The world has witnessed substantial growth of China’s hotel industry for over three decades. Since the birth of China’s modern hotel industry in the late 1970s, state-owned hotels have dominated the industry throughout the country in terms of the total number of rooms. As state-owned assets, the evolution of this special lodging sector has been significantly affected by Chinese government policies. This study first provides a comprehensive review of how government policies have affected China’s state-owned hotels in the past and then discusses the most recent hotel-related government policies and their impact on a number of critical strategic issues, including ownership shifting, growth of domestic groups and brand development. The future development trends of China’s state-owned hotels are also provided.
