WICHITA — A new SpringHill Suites by Marriott is coming to West Kellogg.
“There was no Marriott brand on the west side of the town,” Mitesh Patel says.
He says he’d hope to bring a Courtyard by Marriott there but couldn’t.
“We had a little opposition from (the) downtown Courtyard,” Patel says.
Patel says he’s had 37 hotels that he’s bought and sold through the years.
“Our business is to run hotels and build them,” he says.
SpringHill Suites will open in spring or summer 2014.
Patel says the hotel will have 3,000 square feet of meeting space but won’t have a restaurant.
“We have Texas Roadhouse next door.”
