A-1 HOSPITALITY GROUP of Kennewick, Washington, will manage the Homewood Suites by Hilton New Braunfels, Texas. The 90-suite property is the third addition this year for the company led by Taran Patel, managing principal.
The Homewood Suites is near the Comal River, the Guadalupe River, Schlitterbahn Water Park, the San Antonio Historic District and the Greune Historic District. Amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, a patio with a fire pit and barbecue grills and 600 square feet of meeting space that can accommodate up to 60 people.
“We are extremely excited to undertake the operations of the Homewood Suites by Hilton New Braunfels,” Patel said. “Our experienced management team will provide unparalleled guest services in a clean and modern environment. For A-1 Hospitality Group, this will be our first hotel outside of the Pacific Northwest area and we look forward to the next chapter in our growth.”
A-1 Hospitality also opened a Courtyard by Marriott in Pasco, Washington, in February, and a Holiday Inn Express & Suites in The Dalles, Oregon, in April. One year ago the company began development of a $11 million Fairfield Inn by Marriott in Hermiston, Oregon, with funding from a $9.5 million USDA loan.
The company was founded by Vijay and Mita Patel in 1997 and has eight select-service and extended-stay hotels located in Washington, Oregon and Texas.
