A Hotel Chain is a company that owns or operates several hotels (see also Independent Hotel Chain). These chains are enterprises that manage a number of hotels located in different areas. They can be total or partial owners of the hotel and they manage their administration, marketing and promotion. The chain generally carries its brand name which it passes on to its chain hotels.

The difference between hotel chains and hotel groups is that the latter have multiple subsidiary brands, allowing the hotel to greatly differ their services, products and prices offered with hotels that differ in characteristics. A hotel that is part of a Hotel Chain is known as a chain hotel.

Independent hotels can also join a soft hotel brand or Independent Hotel Group, where they can take advantage of all the benefits offered by hotel chains without being held back by all the restrictions imposed.
