About us

A-1 Hospitality Group, located in Tri-Cities, WA specializes in hotel property management. We are family owned and operated, and pride ourselves on our customer service across a wide range of hotel brands.

Since 1997, providing the highest quality guest experience has been our mission. We do this by routinely exceeding our guests’ expectations. The success of our mission depends upon our employees, so we strive to create a healthy, supportive and positive work environment for them. In doing so, we secure the long-term financial well-being of our company, and deliver excellent returns to our investors.

A-1 Hospitality Group, founded by Vijay and Mita Patel, began with the purchase of a single motel property. Through careful investment in our properties and brands, we now own and operate five premier properties in Oregon and Washington State.

Our guests choose to stay at our properties because they are clean, modern and deliver consistently superior service. Our goal is always to be the first choice among travelers, who look to us to be their “home away from home.

Our Values

The core of our success is our Family of Employees. Each hotel team is comprised of a family, which strives to welcome each guest to their “home away from home,” providing them with the greatest level of customer service and a comfortable, clean room with modern amenities.

Each of our hotels aim to provide state of the art modern day amenities that will help build on the memorable experience they will have from the time they check in to our facilities to the time they leave.

We know our guests better than anyone because we understand the needs of our guest. We know that when they visit a place, their hotel should feel like their home away from home.

A-1 Hospitality Group takes pride in building the strongest management teams. We continuously educate our teams on the newest tactics available in effective management as well as develop our line level employees to help them move up within our company. We hire and train the strongest individuals with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. After all, our employees are the key to our success.

A-1 Hospitality Group has long been focused on its guests who frequent the markets within the Pacific Northwest. We believe this region has the greatest long-term growth prospects in the country and provides a unique and compelling investment opportunity.
