HERITAGE HOSPITALITY GROUP will develop an Embassy Suites by Hilton, complementing a large mixed-use project in Forsyth County, Georgia.
RocaPoint Partners and Georgetown Co., developers of the project, called Halcyon, said adding hotels to the 135-acre complex is part of the original plan.
Hiren “Chico” Patel is founder and president of Heritage Hospitality of Ridgeland, Mississippi. His brother Mitesh “Mike” Patel is executive vice president. Jay Darji is director of business development as well as managing principal of the Heritage Hospitality Group Fund.
The Embassy Suites by Hilton will have 152 suites, including presidential suites. It will feature ballrooms, 6,500 square feet of meeting space, an indoor pool and sauna, a fitness center and yoga studio and a bar and the brand-signature atrium.
Halcyon is a $370 million office, residential, retail and restaurant development and the first giga-byte community in Forsyth County. The city of Cumming is the county seat. The county also includes the city of Alpharetta, a suburb of metro-Atlanta. It is one of the nation’s wealthiest and fastest-growing regions.
Heritage Hospitality Group has unleashed unprecedented growth over the past two years.
Chico Patel began the company in 2006 as S&R Development Inc. It has more than a dozen hotels in Louisiana and Oklahoma constructed by S&R Development. As Heritage Hospitality Group, the company is building two Tru by Hilton hotels in Meridian and Ridgeland, Mississippi. It plans to build 13 more Tru hotels.
Also under development are 18 other hotels in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas and Oregon – a Holiday Inn, a Holiday Inn Express, La Quinta Inn & Suites, Home2 Suites, Homewood Suites, Hyatt Place, Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites and Woodspring Suites.
