A 100 room hotel is projected to cost $5,000,000 plus $200,000 in franchise costs and working capital. Franchise costs of $100,000 will be amortized over the first 5 years of business. Depreciation is calculated in the straight-line method over 24 years with a salvage value of $200,000.

The telephone department breaks even and the F&B department has a profit of $300,000 per year. All the room department’s costs are variable at 25% of room revenues. The hotel is expected to reach a 70% occupancy in the first year and the tax rate is 25%.

Required:

1. Determine the average room rate for the hotel using the bottom up approach.
