A leading real estate investment, mixed-use development and hospitality management company, The Witness Group has a vast portfolio of top-branded properties throughout the United States. 

With more than 35 years of industry experience in its areas of expertise, the Lewis Center, Ohio-based company prides itself on being at the forefront of progressive design, efficient construction and industry-leading hospitality management. The Witness Group info box

The Witness Group is known for investing, building and managing hotels and real estate. It focuses on premium branded assets that deliver value and growth for its investors and communities. Its brand partners include Hilton, Marriott, Wyndham, Best Western, La Quinta, IHG InterContinental Hotels Group and RHL Corporation. 

To better serve its investors, partners and vendors, the company unveiled a new website in April. “The launch of our new website marks only the beginning of our 2017 digital strategy,” CEO Ohm Patel said in a statement. “We’re excited to build on what we have launched here and have plans to roll out a dynamic investor center, as well as a fun and engaging digital marketing strategy.”

The website offers visitors a visual and contextually robust representation of  The Witness Group’s brand identity, its three primary solutions, current portfolio, new developments and career opportunities. The website was built in partnership with Columbus, Ohio-based digital agency WOW!brands.

“We wanted to provide the most up to date, relevant information for investors, partner brands, hospitality vendors and prospective employees,” Patel said. “The new state-of-the-art design, cutting-edge functionality and rich content showcases everything that we are and what we want to be known for in our industry.”

The Merger

The Witness Group is the result of a merger between Alliance Hospitality and KB Hotel Group. The two companies shared more than similar business models. Both companies have a long-standing family history in the hospitality industry and have simultaneously cultivated organizations with congruent goals and values over the past 35 years.

Alliance and KB are leaders within their respective markets and often came together to share best practices and discuss strategies. Rather than compete with one another, the two organizations decided to merge into one. 

Today, The Witness Group is a three-pronged enterprise offering hotel investment, construction and management. 

Investment Opportunities

The Witness Group says it has investment opportunities in Ohio, Indiana and Washington, D.C. The company helps stakeholders realize their investment potential by outlining each investor’s qualitative and quantitative objectives  to mutually define expectations for success. 

The company prides itself on a track record of uncovering value and achieving high returns through new developments, value-add acquisitions and strategic divestitures by identifying the right opportunities in the right locations, at the right time.

In addition to allocation and investment of capital, The Witness Group strives to deliver incremental value and stability for its investors through a seamless integration of investment, development, construction and hospitality management solutions. The company believes that by focusing on long-term returns and capital preservation it will outperform Standard & Poor’s 500 index. 

Innovative Ideas 

With generations of experience in hotel construction and management, The Witness Group says it is confident that its expertise and vision will bring its clients’ projects to life and guarantee lasting success. The company says that a mix of experience, innovation and precision has enabled it to deliver high-quality, cutting-edge properties on time and on budget.

It credits more than 25 years of real estate construction experience, focused on strong relationships, for being the cornerstone of its success. Longstanding partnerships with local and national vendors have enabled it to deliver reliability and value to its stakeholders. 

The Witness Group seeks opportunities to evolve by using the newest materials, design approaches, aesthetic trends and technology to deliver projects that offer a competitive edge while remaining fiscally responsible. A detailed emphasis on site planning and execution helps projects stay on schedule, scope and within budget.

In the management arena, The Witness Group says it is known for its ability to exceed expectations while delivering excellent customer service. This has ensured stability, development, and growth opportunities for its management team members. The company says it places a high emphasis on teamwork, performance and consistency to collectively drive ownership to deliver long-term results.
