Our dream was to create a better life for ourselves and our family, our community, and our team members.
As immigrants from India to the United States in the 1970s, and newly married, we began our careers in Pravin's family hospitality business, helping to run and manage a small lodging establishment in Oakland, CA.
We instantly fell in love with our new hometown and saw its infinite possibilities. Our first experience in hospitality inspired us to branch out on our own, slowly acquiring properties to develop and manage in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We also believed that we could make the most significant impact by giving our time and getting involved. We've been fortunate to participate in many activities to give back to our community, and to our beloved industry through our leadership on lodging and tourism organizations and associations.
Over the years, we've learned the importance of surrounding ourselves with like-minded people who value service to others and work together for the good of the company, community, and industry.
Today, we're proud that our dream has come to fruition and that we've built a company whose culture allows and inspires its team members to do what they love and love what they do.
