A VISIONARY APPROACH
TO HOSPITALITY DEVELOPMENT
AON Hospitality Group takes a unique approach to hospitality development, one that integrates hotel development, construction management, operations and investment. We assist our partners with every phase of the development process.
We take ownership of success by personally investing in every project and also providing operational management including staffing, marketing support, facility management and creating memorable, meaningful guest experiences.
We help set new standards of performance from the quality of the constructed environment, staff, and guest satisfaction to revenue, operating profits and return-on-investment. We raise the expectation for what is possible and we do it all out of our passion, enthusiasm and love for hospitality.Our ServicesLet's Talk
AON Hospitality Group was founded by Harry Patel and Gary Patel, who bring with them more than 40 years of collective real estate development experience across a variety of business sectors including hospitality, senior living, retail, medical, and multi-family, among others. Based in Fleming Island, FL, AON Hospitality Group has developed a rapidly-growing footprint of highly-successful hotels throughout North Florida. The Patels have also developed and served as an owner/operators for many other commercial properties in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Virginia. Their success in hotel development facilitated the formation of the AON Hospitality Group, a company dedicated exclusively to the hospitality industry.
AON Hospitality Group provides its fully integrated services for globally branded, independent and boutique hotels including full-service luxury, limited service, all-suites, extended stay, destination resort, lifestyle and soft brands. It not only handles new builds, but also conversions, expansions, redevelopment and repositioning. AON Hospitality Group’s success is a result of its all-inclusive, owner, operator, manager business model; it’s emphasis on teamwork, collaboration and building lasting relationships; and its business performance in areas like guest satisfaction, revenue generation, gross profit and return on investment.
