The Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Dayton North is now open in Dayton, Ohio. It is owned by The Witness Group, founded by Sagar and Ohm Patel, and managed by Hotel Equities.
The 100-room hotel is near The Dayton Art Institute, Rose Music Center at the Heights, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, National Museum of the US Air Force, Dayton Dragons, and the University of Dayton. It is six miles from the Dayton International Airport.
Amenities include an indoor swimming pool and a fitness center.
Earlier this month, TWG and HE opened the dual-brand Residence Inn and SpringHill Suites by Marriott Indianapolis Keystone in Indianapolis, Indiana, and previously opened the Home2 Suites by Hilton Carmel Indianapolis in Indianapolis.
TWG, based in Columbus, Ohio, was formed in 2016 as a merger of Alliance Hospitality and KB Hotel Group with Ohm Patel as CEO, according to an article in Asian Hospitality at the time. KB Hotel Group was a management company while Alliance did development.
Ohm’s father Naresh Patel began Alliance in 1999. Nitin Patel is Naresh’s brother-in-law and became partner in Alliance in 2000. His son Sagar Patel is one of TWG’s founders and, along with Ohm and Sagar’s cousin Sachin and Aakash are principals.
In September, TWG contracted with HE to manage its portfolio of now more than 36 hotels.
