WICHITA — Hotelier Naina Patel has purchased the AmericInn at 4848 S. Laura and is rebranding it.
“It’s close by, it’s … easy for us to manage,” she says of the new hotel.
The Days Inn has 43 rooms. The AmericInn had 52 rooms but will drop to 50 as a Super 8. Patel plans to convert one room into storage and the other into either an expanded breakfast space or an exercise room.
She plans to start remodeling in a month or so.
“Obviously, it needs a little bit of TLC, so we’re going to redo the whole thing.”
