The Dimensional Game of High Rises and High Stakes
Milton Bradley - 1987
2 - 4 Players; Ages 8 - Adult

Hotels is yet another three dimensional real estate game in the tradition of Square Mile and Prize Property. In Hotels the players are building resort hotels and attempting to drive their competitors into bankruptcy.
Players take turns moving around the board. Each square on the board is adjacent to one or two hotel properties. Most of the squares are either purchase squares or building squares.
Whenever a player lands on a purchase square which is adjacent to an unowned property they may buy that property by paying the purchase price. Once they own a property they may attempt to build on it whenever they land on a building square. A special die is rolled to determine if permission to build is granted or denied. If it is denied the player must wait for a later turn.
When permission is granted to build the player may add new buildings or facilities to their property. Each hotel has from one to five buildings and a set of recreational facilities. The main building must be built first, followed by the other buildings then the facilities. The cost of each addition is listed on the deed card for the property.
Once a player has at least one building on a property they may add entrances to their hotels. One entrance can be placed on each square of the board. If a player lands on an entrance for a hotel belonging to another player they must pay the owner to stay at that hotel. The cost of staying depends on the number of buildings and facilities in that hotel.
If the player cannot afford to stay at the hotel they must put their own properties up for auction to raise money. A player who loses all of their money and properties is out of the game. The last player remaining is the winner.
Hotels is an interesting game, mainly because of its components. The three dimensional hotels are nice and the themes of the hotels look like something that belong in a resort city but the game itself is little more than another variation of Monopoly with the hotel buildings and facilities taking the place of the houses and hotels. You even collect $2000 each time you round the board. The only new addition is the entrances. Since each square usually borders on two hotels but each square can only hold one entrance there is some strategy in buying entrances to block your opponents hotel. An interesting game but more from its components than from actual play.

Hello. I found my HOTEL boardgame after 15 years and started playing. I have the 1993 European edition and also found out that I am missing some title deeds (and maybe some money). Is it possible to send me the prices on the title deeds if I tell you which ones I am missing? In addition, can you also tell me how many paperbills of each where included in the game ($50, $100, $500, $1000, $5000)? Thank you very much in advance!
I need a copy of the title deed for le grand hotel as my friend seems to have misplaced it. If you could email it to me it would be appreciated thanx
Where can I find parts?
I just picked up the game on ebay for $30 AUS but there are no title deeds at all. Does anyone know where I can get them from. Even if I have to make copy and make them, does anyone have a copy they can scan as I am obsessed with trying to play the game with family as it was such a good shild hood memory
This game is available on eBay, just to go www.ebay.com and search for "Hotels board game." It's quite pricey, some sellers are asking for about $100, but I guess it's because people are willing to bid that high! Be sure to read the fine print - I think all the auction items I saw were for used items but many auctions state that the game is missing pieces. eBay also has individual pieces for sale. Good luck in obtaining your game!
I'm trying to find the deed for Waikiki. I love this game! And I have been dreaming about owning it since the 80s. Finally I got it at an internet auction, and received it yesterday. But the deed for Waikiki is missing! Can anyone help me with the info on it? I'll draw up a new card, but I really need the property values and rent pr building. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if any one has a complete set of the rules for this game or knows where i can download one please let me know at email@example.com thanks

Want to buy "Hotels" board game - please tell me where I can get.
My brother and I love this game. We had a version growing up and kept it. We bought on off eBay about 9 years ago so we could each have one. It's truly the best board game out there.
I know they still sell them on eBay but they're more expensive now then when we got ours 9 years ago. Look under toys & hobbies.
I'd be happy to share title deed info for anyone who needs it. :)
Would love to know where to buy this game. My son and I had many happy hours playing this game. Can you please let me know where to buy it.
please let me know where to buy the M.B. Hotel Board Game, my wife and I used to have it when we first got married 20 years ago, i would love to find it again and keep as a memory for our first years
We had the game as kids and thru high school now when we went to play it we can't find all the deeds. Is someone out there nice enough to give us the deed info? We remember some of the info just from playing so much but not all of it.
My husband and I LOVE this game. My mom gave me the one we played when I was a kid and would never part with it. It really is one of the best games out there! If you never played this one....find one and hold on to it!!!!
I love this game?
This is my favorite game to play that I never won. A friend(who now lives far away) has this game. I wish I had one of my own.
where can i find a replacements for it
i am a secret agent, who lost my memory, but the one thing i do remember is that Hotels is a great game
great game, got a version for 2 dollars at gargae sale
We had this growing up and LOVED it! I found a version for sale a few years ago and my mom bought copies for my brothers and I. It was made in india and is very flimsy, I laminated all the property cards and facilities and the hotels themsleves are held together with tape. I can't remember what website had it for sale.
I got one (100% complete) on ebay for 70.00! My husband is going to be so surprises,excited on Christmas morning!
I do not have games for sale myself, but if you check the "Links" tab on the left it contains links to several places that deal in older/classic games. Hopefully one of them will have a copy.
That was my brother and my favorite game growing up. It was sold at a garage sale 15 years ago and we are trying to track one down.
