Meet The Team

Ameet Patel


Chief Executive Officer

Graduating from the University of Kentucky with degrees in Accounting, Finance, and Management - Ameet started his professional career in public accounting. He later realized that auditing the books of financial institutions and public/private companies wasn't his passion. It was Hospitality. After some years in the industry, Ameet realized that there was a void for the next generation of Hoteliers and travelers - thus THG was born!

At THG, Ameet is responsible for overseeing new construction projects and upon opening - the financial and operational aspect of every hotel in the THG portfolio.

In his spare time, Ameet enjoys traveling, volunteering, and being a foodie!

Al is a started out in the hospitality industry from an early age in Georgia. He helped his parents operate many hotels in and around the Atlanta area. He holds degrees in Economics and Finance and loves supporting the Georgia Bulldogs and Atlanta Falcons!


At THG, he specializes in development, sales, and marketing. Through his leadership and management style, our properties have received numerous awards for high guest satisfaction. 


When time permits, Al loves to spend his free time by the grill with his wife and twin boys! Go Dawgs!

In 2017, Evan joined one of the THG properties as a Guest Services Agent. He excelled at the position and a few short months later Evan was named the Director of Operations for THG, now overseeing multiple hotels across the THG portfolio.

Evan is a stickler for perfection and his hotels sure reflect it. THG is very lucky to have someone like Evan on board.
