New Construction

With an expert technical staff in-house and strong partnerships with our contractors, we have new hotel construction down to a science. In 2012, we constructed the Hampton Inn Iowa City/University Area hotel in 109 days. This success story can be credited to excellent teamwork and the real estate, construction, design, procurement and management expertise of our team members. Hawkeye Hotels has proven its success over time by developing new assets on-time, on-budget and on-target with financial projections and guest satisfaction ratings.


Our in-house capabilities and versatility serve as valuable assets to redevelopment projects as well. We excel in locating aging assets to rebrand and renovate. We realize that making the proper investments at the onset of a redevelopment project improves guest loyalty, long-term performance and ease of maintenance. Meticulous planning, design and execution result in fresh facilities that reflect the chosen brand’s image. Franchisors, lenders and local communities frequently recognize our redevelopment achievements. For profitable development and redevelopment opportunities with long-term value and optimal returns, look no further than Hawkeye Hotels. We’re transforming the hospitality business into something truly impressive.
