Courtyard by Marriott, 120-rooms, restaurant (The Bistro), indoor pool, fitness, and meeting rooms.  $6.2 million facility


311 S. 17th Street, Ames, IA


3.8 Acres

Project Highlight:

Beneath the parking lot is an underground storm sewer system. FOX was able to satisfy the Ames Code requirements for storm water storage and quality with this type of system. Advantages to having an underground system include; good use of land, easier maintenance and safety. A traditional dry/wet pond would require a larger land footprint, constant maintenance (litter removal and mowing) and fencing.


G & G Hospitality LLC.  The G & G Hospitality team consists of principals Manish Patel, Hiren Jetha, Nick Patel, Pankesh Jariwala and Adeeb Khaleel. The deal was accomplished with the advisory and coordination efforts of former Iowa State University football player Seneca Wallace, former ISU player and current state Sen. Jack Whitver, Dan Culhane, the president of the Ames Chamber of Commerce, and friends and close family investors, the release stated.
