Statement from partner, Ketan Patel:


I have been in the hotel business since 1995. In that year, I began my career in the lodging industry alongside my family. We ran a 128-room hotel and I gained valuable experience working in all departments, including laundry, housekeeping, maintenance, front desk, and management. This was a wonderful opportunity for myself and my family to gain insight regarding all the aspects of managing a successful hotel, which eventually led me to being prepared to start my own business. Today, U.S. Hotels, Inc. is known for its ability to assist properties with generating additional revenue, controlling costs, enhancing the guest experience, operating to franchise standards, maintaining a competitive advantage, and seamlessly incorporating capital renovations at appropriate times.”
