In 1977, T.N. Patel relocated his family from London, England to Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. T.N. invested in the Triple S Motel in Atlantic Beach and thereby established the business that would become Sejwad Hospitality. T.N. went on to acquire several motels throughout the region and later sold these successful properties at attractive pricing in the mid-1990s. T.N. then moved his family to Columbia, South Carolina where he started anew with the help of his son, Rick Patel. Together, the duo sought to capitalize on the evolving hospitality industry and began to acquire and develop branded hotels in Columbia.
Today, Sejwad Hospitality has become the preeminent hotel development, management, and ownership company in the Columbia, South Carolina area.
Since its humble beginnings, the company has expanded its portfolio to consist of eight hotels, two dedicated conference centers, and a myriad of additional properties. Sejwad Hospitality’s success can be attributed to the company’s commitment to be dedicated, diligent, and tenacious in every venture. With ambitious plans for growth and expansion, Sejwad Hospitality is poised to become the leading hospitality company in the Southeast.
