management and consulting for hotels and residences

Welcome to Selective Hotels

Selective Hotels and Residences GmbH founded 2008 is a Swiss Hotel Management Company based in Zurich and born in France. Selective Hotels distinguishes itself by the professional experience of its management. Selective Hotels offers two categories of services to hotel owners: hotel management services and consulting services. Our management services are focused on providing the highest quality management to boutique, 3, 4 or 5 star luxury hotels. Our consulting services are founded on the principle that we offer the same professional advice and direction that we utilize as hotel managers.

Selective Hotels’ mission is to serve the interests of independent owners and to protect them from monopolistic relationships with the global hotel chains. Our management services are founded on this bedrock principle of fair dealing and equal partnership with owners. Our consulting services are designed to both give independent owners the tools they need to thrive and to give them leverage when dealing with other management service providers.

Selective Hotels – Professional services for your success

Selective Hotels provides management services for boutique hotels and resorts all over the world with special focus on winter resorts, summer resorts, and city resorts with 50 – 200 rooms and 3 -5 star luxury quality.
