In Hotel Mogul, the player takes the role of the business savvy Lynette, who sets out to reclaim her family business from her conniving husband. In order to earn enough money to accomplish her goal, she must learn to manage a global business empire. In the beginning, the player is given only a few campsites and cafes to run. In time, he or she is tasked with managing a worldwide network of luxury hotels, restaurants and amusement parks.
Hotel Mogul features over 30 challenging levels, 12 trophies, five massive locations in different climates and four hidden object mini-games. The player can also purchase nine types of buildings, some of which appear only in special bonus levels.
