With the growth of globalization, various of studies about international management are spurting from different organizations, except the hotel industry in Romania. However, there are many hotel chains operate outside of their own countries and aim to work in the Romanian market, which put expatriates in a primary position to the success. After interviewing the expatriate hotel managers in Bucharest, the authors find out that most critical management ability for hotel expatriate managers is cross-culture ability, and parent hotel companies should provide cross-cultural training programs for their managers who governed the subsidiaries abroad. Also, they suggest international hotel chains to give more chances to expatriates, which enhance their speed in integrating into a new cultural environment.
