dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to examine the governance practices of the hospitality industry in Ghana. The study compares the governance practices of two sets of hotels (3-star and 4-star hotels) within the context of best practices around the world. The study adopts a comparative case study methodology by comparing the governance structures of 3-star and 4-star hotels. This is meant to ascertain whether these classes of hotels exhibit different or similar governance practices. The findings revealed that governance practices did not meet best practices around the world. Even though, the corporate governance practices are in line with the provisions of the Companies Code, lapses are widespread reflected in board composition and board sub-committee (audit committee) to slate of other procedures that depart from international best practices. It was ascertained that there were similarities and differences in the governance practices of the two classes of hotels. This raises serious concerns which must be addressed if the hospitality industry is to offer the needed boost to the economy of Ghana. The originality of the paper lies in the fact that it considers a unique sector often neglected by researchers in Ghana and also within Sub-Saharan Africa. en_US
