Who we are

Founded in 1957 in San Francisco, Lotus Hotels is a culmination of rich tradition, enduring values, and unparalleled experience. Founder B.G. Amin built the brand on the ideals of delivering superior hospitality at an exceptional value through stringent quality measures, meticulous recruiting and training, and an unwavering commitment to the most important element — the guest. His formula has stood the test of time — six decades and an equal number of recessions.

With hotels located throughout picturesque Northern California, Lotus has consistently grown for over 60 years by delivering superior value to guests, associates and partners alike. In addition to the collection of hotels, the company also operates a number of retail centers and self storage facilities. Regardless of the investment, the principles remain the same.

Today, Lotus continues to serve as a benchmark by adopting emerging methods and technology, cultivating vibrant talent, and serving guests with exceptional hospitality. With a background in legal and finance, third generation hotelier Bhupen Amin now leads the company while still adhering to the core principles set forth in the company's humble beginnings. He also sits on the Board of Directors of United Business Bank, The California Hotel & Lodging Association, The Workforce Development Board and a host of other non-profit organizations. He also serves as a Pro-Tem Judge with the Alameda County Superior Courts.
