Today’s Hotel Insurance Requires Experience
By nature, hotels present a complicated insurance picture. A successful hotel business has lots of moving parts, and each part presents its own property and casualty insurance exposure. This includes the physical structures(s) plus contents, lost business income, employees or contractors, potential amenities such as swimming pools, exercise equipment, food, liquor, auto, and so much more.

Not All Hotel Property Insurance Is Created Equal
The biggest asset to your hotel business is the structure or building(s) itself. The real property. Or presented another way, without your building(s) you would have no hotel business. Then why would a hotel business cut corners on their property insurance?
The problem is education and marketing. Insurance is marketed heavily on price, as every carrier promises to save you money. Yes, we all like to save money, but when it comes time to file a claim, coverage is what makes the difference.
At Wister, we will educate you on property insurance coverage options for your hotel business, such as named perils versus special form or all-risk. We explain the difference between replacement cost valuation and actual cash value, which ultimately determines claim amounts. Once educated, we help guide you to the right insurance plan and coverage options as every hotel business owner has different risk tolerance levels.
Business Income Insurance Is a Must for All Hotels
A common thread among all hotel business owners is the objective of earning an income. Hotel business owners work too hard to not have that income fully protected in the event of an insurance peril.
There are variables often overlooked when it comes to business income and extra expense insurance coverage. Items such as how the lost income is calculated, how long the income is paid after a peril, and what perils will trigger the lost income claim.
Wister agents are trained to cover these items, ask questions and ultimately help you make the right insurance decisions at the right premium.
