About Us

Company founder Vinay Patel has 25 year of hotel experience. At the age of 8, he assisted in housekeeping to front desk at the family motel. Upon graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Business Administration, he continued the family business with his father Bob Patel at a small 15 room motel in Richmond, Virginia. Here he learned the values of hard work and perseverance. He did everything from cleaning, maintenance, to running the desk and marketing this small motel.

From here Vinay and his father bought a piece of property in Stafford, Virginia, where no one would give them a franchise because of the lack of experience in a larger and franchised hotel. After being turned down by many large hotel companies, Carlson Hotels gave them a chance to build the first Country Inn and Suites in Virginia. Since then, both have had a very prosperous relationship where everyone has benefited.

Along the way Vinay has received many awards for his accomplishments. He was awarded the 'Future Hotelier of the Year' award by the Asian American Hotel Owners Association and won the Presidential Award by Carlson Companies for the Country Inn and Suites for achieving the highest level of operational excellence. All hotels managed by Fairbrook have high quality standards and each hotel has won the highest honors by the respective franchise company.

Fairbrook also believes in giving back to the hotel industry with involvement on numerous levels. Vinay presently serves on the Franchise Advisory Council for Carlson Hotels and also a Board of Director for the American Hotel and Lodging Association.

Today with the variety of background, Fairbrook Hotels primary goal is to grow by selectively acquiring, developing and managing hotels and building loyalty amongst our associates, customers and partners.
