A limited-service hotel (LSH) is a hotel without restaurant and banquet facilities, which are part of the defining characteristics of a full-service hotel (FSH).The LSH’s market position is based on the recognition that, for some travelers, the key requirement is a satisfactory room but few of the other amenities.

Lower investment outlay and operating cost, a feature shared by all LSHs, lead to a more stable investment product versus the FSH, and LSHs can deliver an on-par to slightly better risk-adjusted return than other commercial real estate classes.
