The 98-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Katy, Texas, is now under management by Wayside Investment Group, led by Miraj Patel as president, and Southwest Hospitality Management.

WAYSIDE INVESTMENT GROUP of Houston, Texas, will manage the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Katy, Texas, in collaboration with Southwest Hospitality Management. The hotel will undergo a complete Formula Blue multimillion-dollar renovation.

Wayside, led by Miraj Patel as president, has added three hotels this year to its purchasing, development and management services.

The 98-room Holiday Inn is near the Golf Club at Cinco Ranch, TopGolf Houston, Katy Mills Mall and CityCentre.

“The addition of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Katy demonstrates our focused growth in our local Houston-area market and provides us the opportunity to launch our collaboration with Southwest Hospitality Management, which will provide our companies the resources to grow our footprint,” Patel said.

Wayside’s other recent additions include a Travelodge that was repositioned to a Red Roof PLUS+ in Galveston, Texas, in March and a Baymont Inn & Suites in Humble, Texas. The latter is currently undergoing renovations and will be rebranded to a Best Western.
