Who We Are
The History of PeachState Hospitality

Founded by Danny Patel in 1989, PeachState Hospitality began with the acquisition of a 16-unit, independent motel in Montezuma, GA. From these unassuming beginnings and with the help of friends and family, Mr. Danny Patel has aggressively developed over 50 franchised and independent hotels throughout the southeastern United States. During this expansive growth, Mr. Patel and his team mastered every facet of modern hotel development, construction and management, providing for the foundation and inception of what is now a first-rate, multi-unit hotel management and development company.

PeachState Hospitality continues to grow in the select-service market, currently with over ten hotels in various stages of development and construction. With a focus on new-build properties, PeachState Hospitality consistently develops quality hotels in every market it enters. Going beyond the requirements of each brand, PeachState ensures its guests comfortable accommodations in inviting surroundings with gracious hospitality.

American Pride BankDanny is also a founder of the American Pride Bank (AmericanPrideBank.com) a community based bank, which has branches in Macon and Warner Robins, Georgia. Danny currently serves as the bank’s chairman.
