11 D. Hotel Organization Mission Statement Objectives Defines the unique purpose that sets one hotel or hotel company apart from others. It expresses the underlying philosophy that gives meaning and direction to hotel policies. A hotel’s mission statement should address the interests of three diverse groups: guests, management, and employees.ObjectivesAre those ends an organization must achieve to effectively carry out its mission. An objective is more specific than a mission; it calls for levels of achievement which can be observed and measured.

Strategies Are the methods a department or division plans to use to achieve its goals. Organizational Chart A schematic representation of the relationships between positions within the organization.
