AUSTIN, Texas - Advantage Hotels, Inc., a hotel company whose Vista® and Select Inn® brands offer a new vision for today's hotelier, is proud to announce it is the newest Vendor Partner of Leuva Patidar Samaj of USA.

"I have admired and supported LPS of USA since its inception and consider so many of its officers and members as cherished relationships. This is not just a one-year agreement, it's a long-term commitment that will ensure the success of both organizations through the combined support of each other. It also solidifies our commitment to the values of LPS and what they represent," said Advantage Hotels President & CEO Patrick Mullinix, who has held executive positions with major hotel companies for 25 years.

Besides Mullinix's long-time association with LPS, two of Advantage Hotels' Advisory Board members - Dhansukh "Dan" Patel and Mukesh Mowji - are former LPS Presidents.

"LPS of USA is proud to align with Advantage Hotels and we look forward to growing this partnership with Patrick, who I have personally known for almost 10 years now. Both organizations have strong family cultures, so this is a natural fit," said incoming LPS of USA President Jimmy Patel.
