Cindy Suttles

Cindy Suttles believes that we must continually evolve and reinvent ourselves in order to grow and improve. This way of thinking is what has driven her throughout her career at Paragon Hotel Company.

Mrs. Suttles began her hospitality career as a GM for the Days Inn in Anderson, SC, which was owned by Ricky Patel at the time. She left RCR Management Company to become a GM for the LaQuinta Inns, Inc., where all hotels were corporately owned. She was able to take the 9 years’ experience she garnered there with the phenomenal training and resources, coupled with the 2 HGI hotels she opened, to help prepare her for the RDO position that she now holds.

Cindy came to Paragon Hotel Company in 2010 as GM of the Holiday Inn, Anderson. There she earned the PHC GM of the year award for 2014 as well as the GM to Watch award. In 2015 she was promoted to Regional Director of Operations. She currently manages the Southern Region of the Paragon Hotel Company portfolio which includes the following brands: Hampton, Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Country Inn & Suites, Comfort Suites and Wingate Inn.

One of Cindy’s favorite motto’s is, “If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always gotten.” She is very caring and people-oriented with her staff. She says that we are in the hospitality business, so we should always be hospitable and just “Do the Right Thing!”

In Cindy’s words, “I want to work in a company that cares about its people and treats them fairly. We are here to make money and that is critical to our success, but I can’t work in an unfair or uncaring company. I am also very proud of us working to make every community better by encouraging our associates and managers to volunteer.”
