HOS Management Honored by AAHOA at Annual Convention, Awarded IAHA Independent Hotel of the Year Award


SAVANNAH, Ga. --  HOS Management, a second generation hospitality and development company headquartered in Savannah, Ga., was recently honored by the AAHOA and awarded the IAHA Independent Hotel of the Year Award for The Cotton Sail Hotel at the organization's annual convention in Long Beach, Calif. IAHA Independent Hotel of the Year Award is awarded to a hotel that sets a high standard of excellence in quality, service and guest satisfaction.

Under the expert leadership and vision of founders Kirit Patel and Anil Patel, HOS Management opened The Cotton Sail Hotel, a full-service, luxury boutique hotel located at 126 W. Bay Street in May 2014.

"Our experience working with premier hospitality franchise brands over the last 30 years has been instrumental in the success of The Cotton Sail Hotel," said Kris Patel, CFO at HOS Management. "We are careful to oversee our operations with the hands-on quality control of a family-run business and because of that philosophy, The Cotton Sail is thriving."

The boutique hotel features 56 well-appointed guestrooms, 200-year old heart of pine hardwood floors originating from the roof of the original structure, as well as original brickwork exposed in several areas of the building. Ideally situated just steps from City Market and Savannah's famed River Street, The Cotton Sail Hotel offers breathtaking views of the Savannah River and features a long list of upscale amenities, including a rooftop restaurant and bar.

HOS Management manages a diverse group of iconic hotel brands in the Southeast region including Hilton, Choice, IHG and Marriott, and currently has Aloft and Fairfield hotels, as well as a public parking garage, in development in historic downtown Savannah.
