The result reflects the inadequate current strategic management and operational management of hotel chains in China, according to the analysis of those data and information, and referring to literature review of strategic management of private-owned enterprises, private-owned hotel chains and tourism industry in China. The research found out the factors impact the current Chinese private-owned hotel chains being less in number and scale. Anyhow the primary factor actually comes from its inside, but not outside, even though the political and economic environment both at home and abroad is favorable.
