Hotel Magnate Pre-Alpha

Have you ever wanted to design and manage your own hotel, motel, resort, or tent? With a ridiculous amount of customisation tools to wield, a host of facilities to build, and a wide variety of guests to impress, Hotel Magnate has it all. Let your inner hotel manager shine!

  • Single Player
  • Windows
  • Available on:


Hotel Magnate is a tycoon/simulator game that gives you the tools to build and manage your own hotel, motel, luxury resort, or shabby shack. It is whatever you make of it.

Beginning with nothing but dreams and an empty lot, you can shape your hotel to your liking. Pick from an assortment of rooms and facilities that will grow both your floorspace and your revenue stream. Build restaurants for the foodies, day spas for the vacationers, and conference halls for the workaholics. There’s a wide range of rooms to choose from.

Once you’ve laid down the foundations, it’s time to pick out the decor. That’s right, you get to customise everything down to the furniture and decorations. Make it wacky, make it classy, or change up the theme from room to room. You will attract different types of guests as your hotel grows and its rating changes, bringing new opportunities and challenges. Remember, the customer is usually wrong, but you’re in the service industry now. Get your hotel in shape, slap on your best smile, and be prepared for whatever comes.

More Info

In Hotel Magnate, your decisions have consequences. Something as simple as selecting which supplier to purchase towels from, or the price of drinks, can have a significant impact on your business. More luxurious fittings will bring you wealthier guests that are harder to please, whilst lowering the price of alcohol may attract trouble.

Here’s a scenario:
You have decided to lower the price of alcoholic beverages, which has resulted in an increase in sales and guest turnover. However, you didn’t foresee your hotel becoming known as a cheap dive or sleazy resort, attracting a younger crowd that has a penchant for partying and property damage. Make your business decisions wisely!

Main features:

Build, furnish, and oversee your own multi-level hotel

Tend to your guests' needs and demands, and attract wealthier clientele by improving facilities and securing better ratings

Hire employees to clean, serve, manage, and maintain your hotel

Manage everything in your Hotel by hand selecting staff, setting prices and adding in extras like a free breakfast. Set the rate that your rooms are cleaned and manage the quality of your restaurants and bars.


Market your Hotel with marketing campaigns and attract many different types of guests from Party-goers to Families to Business travelers and much more. Try to raise your Hotels rating with better customer experiences as you try to navigate your way to success

Update #26 May - AI update

Hello again! We hope you’re all keeping well and staying as sane as any hotel manager is reasonably expected to be. We’ve made some more progress that we’re excited to share with you! 

The latest pre-alpha update which will be released later this week includes the introduction of guests and staff, which are equally concerning prospects for the smooth operation of a business. 

Guest & Staff AI

We’re launching our guest and staff AI right at you in this upcoming public build. It’s the first step, so expect it to be a bit basic and buggy. You’ll be able to hire staff, assign them to work in different facilities, set room pricing, and watch guests come in and share their opinions about your hotel (in whichever form that may be). 


The majority of menus and management screens that weren’t available in our previous builds will be made available. After all, it’s difficult to manage a hotel without management tools. Some of them are in a bit of a raw state and lack polish. We’ve hired a smart new individual to review our UI/UX and make improvements, though! This will take a bit of time, but it’ll be worth it in the end to make everything more fun to interact with. 

You will also have the ability to filter furniture items by category to more easily find what you’re looking for. This is a majorly requested feature, so we’re very excited to roll it out for everyone. We’ll be expanding it in the future, but enjoy the new functionality in the meanwhile!

New Camera

A new camera controller has found its way into the game, which’ll improve how you move around the map. New controls, shortcuts, and smoother movement/transitions will make it feel just right. The added goodies also include post-processing and lighting tweaks. 

What’s Next?

Our next move is to improve and expand on the AI behaviour system, add in more furniture variants, improve/add character animations, enhance the menus, simplify some of the processes like hiring staff, hammer in more music/audio, and increase stability (bug fixes). 

Pre-Alpha Build:

Our latest pre-alpha build (0.4) was meant to be released at the same time as this post but unfortunately due to a couple of bugs that we want to fix the build won't be released for a couple of days. Access to our Pre-Alpha is only available to those who backed one of the tiers with the “Alpha” reward or who have purchased the founders edition from the crytivo website. The build will be released by Wednesday the 27th of May. The release will be announced on our Discord, Twitter and Kickstarter page and can be downloaded from the crytivo website, so stay tuned!
