SpringHill Suites by Marriott to open on West Kellogg by Texas Roadhouse

WICHITA — A new SpringHill Suites by Marriott is coming to West Kellogg.

Wichita-based Mitesh Construction is building the 121-room hotel at 6633 W. Kellogg, which is on the east side of Texas Roadhouse.

“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.

His group also has the Fairfield Inn & Suites and Holiday Inn Express in Hutchinson along with the Best Western in Hiawatha.

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.”
