Reviews for Hotel Giant
a wonderful memory from the past!mirta000 | May 16, 2014 | See all mirta000's reviews »
Hotel Giant (unlike the second one) only has a sandbox mode, however that did not stop me from enjoying it and recommending it!
You start out by selecting how many years you want to play, how much money you start with and the location of your hotel. Later you get to select the appearance of your hotel and then you can start building!
Now here is where decision making comes into play
How many rooms will you build? What types of rooms will you build? Single bed? Double bed? Multiple beds? Economy class? Or something really expensive? The game will provide you with the list of the people that chose your competitors hotel instead of yours, so you can always check what's the most popular type of room.
Facilities. Will your hotel have a restaurant? A bar? How about a spa? Or a business meeting room? Maybe some shops? Different rooms require different amount of space. There's nothing sadder than building a spa and hearing a constant complaint from customers of "it's not big enough". You also only have so much space to use for building, therefore you have to think carefully. Would I rather provide a service or have more rooms?
Advertising opportunities. You can offer packets to your guests. Would it be useful to sell the use of a business meeting room and a 4 bed room for two nights in a packet together?
It's all about thinking, building and watching little simulated guests use your facilities, complain and praise them. While it's less fleshed out than Hotel Giant 2 I remember having a lot of fun with it.

Hotel Giant is actually not a bad game. It isn't great, it has its flaws. Hoter Giant is a sim game where you manage a hotel. The presentation is meh. The tutorial is awful. But if you are patient, you can find a nice game.
