Team

At Hawkeye Hotels, our employees are committed to the same principles and values that drive our work like midwestern friendliness and midwestern hospitality. A second generation of Patels have made innovation and entrepreneurialism a centerpiece of the work. Because of the outstanding work ethic and talent we seek in our associates, there is not a single individual we don't see as essential to our Hawkeye family.
