STORY

 

'79

From humble beginnings and in pursuit of a better future for his family, Champ Patel migrated the United States.  He purchased his first 32 room motel named

"The Dunes Motel", in Blythe, California, several years of hard work ensued.

On February 9th, 1981 he and his family moved to Weatherford, Oklahoma, after purchasing the "Kendall House Motel'. This 44 room property was later converted to an Econo Lodge. This was his first introduction to franchising a property and he never looked back. Today Champion Hotels is the largest privately held hotel operator in the United States, with over 150 franchised locations.

 

 

'81

 

'89

He bought a neighboring 72 room property called 'Tropicana Inn' in Weatherford, this hotel was converted to a 'Days Inn', this was his first major conversion. Later this year the downturn in midwest oil markets left many properties in distress, which created buying opportunities for he and his partners.

They built the Hampton Inn, in Yukon, Oklahoma, after Hilton's purchase of the Hampton Inn brand, this was their first Hilton branded property and the beginning of another great partnership with another hotel franchise.

 

'92

 

'95

They purchased a 5 story office building in Oklahoma City, the building was stripped down to red iron and an elevator shaft. It was converted into a Hampton Inn. This was his first adaptive reuse  development. To this day, he still believes this was one of his biggest achievements.
