Professional development

Hotels are one of the most time-consuming operator-run properties from planning right through to operations. It is therefore all the more important for us that we support our partners, leaseholders, investors, franchisees and managers along every step of the development.

As a family-run organisation we offer the full value chain in hotel development. This runs from investment through construction monitoring to operations and coordinated marketing. The Lindner Hotels and me and all hotels carry out management and franchise agreements as well as standard leasing agreements and can also guarantee the takeover and purchase of the whole development.

Banks and institutional investors value this flexibility and are able to post considerable successes thanks to the re-positioning and turnaround stories together with Lindner and their investment products.

The renowned hotel operator ranking of the Treugast Solutions Group in Munich has confirmed this categorically over a number of years with its "AA" grade.

Lease by Lindner Hotels & Resorts | me and all hotels

As a traditional German company, apart from the internationally customary management and franchise agreements, we can also fulfil requirements for standard lease agreements, making a partnership with us an attractive prospect for institutional investors. The high flexibility of the property (e.g. age, floor plan) characterises the development of Lindner Hotels & Resorts and me and all hotels.
