Sales based on square feet of retail space are useful for well established, typically national chains with well documented and supportable sales figures. The best way to determine the potential for an existing retail outlet in a Hotel, is to get three years income and expense data. This will tell you want you need to know regarding its profit potential.

Depends on the ADR also, not just the occupancy. Get a look at the financials and you can go from there.
