As president and CEO of Pinnacle Hotels USA, Bharat Lall oversees nine popular hotels in California and Texas. Bharat Lall’s hotels feature the latest and most sought-after amenities, including state-of-the-art fitness centers and heated outdoor pools.

Less persuaded by mini bars and in-room bathrobes, today’s travelers are increasingly interested in more modern services. Across the board, the amenity that is most popular with hotel guests today is free wireless Internet. Guests want to be connected constantly, and they expect to be able to get online easily and for free. For many, lack of this amenity is a deal breaker.

Guests are also demanding spa-quality toiletries. Luxury hotels already offer top-tier bath and beauty products, and many boutique-style hotels offer interesting local products. Even at three-star hotels, consumers are increasingly looking for appealing toiletries that don’t dry out their skin or hair.

Like the demand for toiletries, the demand for fitness centers has spread across all sectors of the hospitality industry. Guests are no longer satisfied with an aging treadmill and elliptical machine in a small room. Instead, they want high-quality fitness facilities with a range of cardio and weight equipment. These amenities go hand in hand with hot tubs, saunas, and upscale spa services, which are also in high demand these days.

Bharat Lall, MD, was working as a medical doctor with a dream of getting into real estate for several years before he bought his first motel with just 12 rooms in 1989. Since then, Dr. Bharat Lall left his medical practice and founded Pinnacle Hotels USA in 1998, where he currently serves as CEO.

Pinnacle has bought and sold many hotel properties since then, specializing in transforming under-performing hotels through upgrades and renovations. From the first 12-room motel, the company grew to work with several larger limited service locations with brands like La Quinta Inn and Comfort Inn.

In 2011, the company bought a Holiday Inn property in San Diego and transformed it with a $3.5 million renovation into the popular Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown. The unique cylindrical building was built in 1970 and is now a full-service hotel with an updated fitness center and a restaurant and bar called C3.

The Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown, along with Pinnacle’s other full-service property, the Radisson Hotel San Diego Rancho Bernardo, represent Pinnacle’s recent expansion into the full-service hotel industry. The company currently owns and manages eight hotel locations in San Diego, Austin, and Riverside from its headquarters in San Diego.
