Our strengths

Over the last three decades, Hawkeye Hotels has evolved strengths in the development, investment and management of hotel properties located across the U.S.

Management excellence is a pillar of our business. Our management philosophy ensures the use of consistent operational and financial systems. We have created systems and controls for every aspect of our business. Our solid procedures maximize revenue today and create profitable strategies for the future.

Hawkeye Hotels enjoys the challenges of finding strong investment opportunities, from identifying land in developing markets to acquiring assets. We have proven our investment acumen even through economic downturns.

Our development expertise makes new construction as well as total renovations faster and more systematic. In 2012, Hawkeye Hotels built and opened a beautiful new Hampton Inn in Iowa City, Iowa, in 109 days, from slab to finish. This set a new record as the fastest new build with Hilton Worldwide.
