As second generation hoteliers, we have literally grown up in the hospitality industry and we are passionate about what we do. Passion drives our ambition to tackle even the most daunting of tasks.
For us, fun is also always part of the equation. We love great wine and good food. Fun feeds our creativity. We are not afraid to “break the mold” in order to exceed all expectations. And, of course, success is always what we strive for. We accept nothing less than extraordinary.
Like no other word, Presidio embodies who we are and where we have come from. For us, there are both cherished memories and core values exemplified in our name.
We have a deep and intimate attachment to the city of San Francisco and especially its beautiful, diverse, history-rich Presidio. The Presidio was a favorite spot of our father, Ramu Patel (owner of the historic Pickwick Hotel 1974 – 1981). As children, the Presidio had a magical quality to it. It connected us to the rich history of the city as well as to the beauty of the natural world around us. Our walks with our father in the Presidio helped shape who we are and kindled in us a passion for the hospitality industry that has never left.
As investors and entrepreneurs, our interests are diversified. We have financial interests in a wide variety of industries, including but not limited to those related to the hospitality industry. We enjoy working with visionaries and highly motivated people. We bring passion, determination, leadership and experience to every endeavor.
