No other natural or legal person may operate the hotel. After reviewing the financial information presented in the application and the proposed ownership of the hotel and the property, the franchisor sets the guarantee requirements. Any necessary surety, which may include the spouse of a hotel owner or franchisee, must sign a guarantee by which the surety assumes certain obligations of the franchisee in the franchise agreement and agrees to honor them. As a general rule, franchisees must meet the franchisee`s requirements with respect to the types and levels of services, amenities and products that must or may be used, promoted or offered in association with the hotel. Franchisees must operate the hotel 24 hours a day every day, unless the franchisee may, due to special circumstances, authorize other means.
