Choice Hotels Canada has announced the national winners of its prestigious 2022 Awards for Property Excellence (APEX). Dharmesh Patel, general manager of the Quality Inn in Leamington, Ontario, is the recipient of the national award for Leader of the Year.

“Dharmesh is a force to be reckoned with and I am so proud to celebrate him with this latest award,” says Brian Leon, CEO of Choice Hotels Canada. “He is not just a colleague, but a friend, who is a true inspiration. He has battled health issues with a positive attitude and has worked tirelessly, never missing a beat, to provide best-in-class hospitality at his hotel.”

The award is a peer-based award that recognizes an individual whose achievements include outstanding operational practices and team building. During the pandemic, Dharmesh pivoted the business multiple times, one of which was to support workers in the agricultural industry arriving in Canada.

He also helped the local restaurant industry through the implementation of a meal plan and twice gave back to those in healthcare working around the clock. Even though he was and still is dealing with his own health challenges, he was able to successfully lead the hotel to achieve a record year. This is the second national APEX award for Dharmesh who was also named Choice Privileges Ambassador of the year in 2021.

“I am so honoured to win the 2022 Leader of the Year award from my Choice Hotels Canada family,” says Dharmesh Patel, general manager of the Quality Inn in Leamington. “It is a joy to host guests at our hotel and it takes a true team effort. I am proud of what our team has been able to accomplish and look forward to the future.”
