Ramesh C. Patel

Mr. Ramesh Patel started his first major hotel project by constructing and opening the Comfort Inn South in Garner, North Carolina in 1992. Following its success, Mr. Patel developed and opened two more properties in 1998, the Comfort Suites RTP/RDU in Durham, North Carolina and the Hampton Inn in Mebane, North Carolina. At that time, Parks Hospitality Group was formed to effectively synergize the operations of all three hotel properties. Equally, Parks Hospitality Group has been committed to developing new hotels.

Although Mr. Patel’s educational background is in Mechanical Engineering and he has worked on the largest nuclear power plants in this country, his focus for the past 21 years has been in the hospitality industry – in developing, managing, and effectively operating franchised hotels. He is an entrepreneur by all means, ensuring financial strength and security in each property, the company as a whole, and all its investors.
