If you run a bar and serve alcohol from your hotel, your insurance costs will likely be higher. This is also true if you have a pool or have any other attractive nuisance or activity on your premises.
Although the budget will always be a consideration, the best investment will be towards coverage that prevents you from suffering a devastating financial loss in the event of the inevitable accident or lawsuit against your hospitality business.
