(Amended by Ordinance No. 187828, effective July 15, 2016.)  Any person engaged in hotel management activities of any hotel with 50 or more rooms within the District shall obtain a license for such activities covering each license year, or if application is made after the beginning of a license year, then for the balance of the license year. Only one person need obtain a license for each hotel in the District. The term license as used in this Chapter, shall not be construed to mean a permit and no physical license will be issued. The license fees prescribed herein are for the privilege of engaging in the activity of hotel property management in the District, and the revenues collected will be used as provided herein. The payment of a license fee required hereunder and the acceptance of such fee and issuance of a license by the Division shall not entitle a licensee to engage in any activities not in compliance with all the requirements of this Code, including but not limited to the requirements of Title 7, and all other applicable laws.
