Hawkeye Hotels Acquires Hampton Inn & Suites in Cranberry Township North of Pittsburgh

USA, Cranberry, Pennsylvania. October 02, 2019

Hawkeye Hotels, recently announced that it has closed on the acquisition of the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton in Cranberry Township, 20 miles north of Pittsburgh.

With this acquisition, Iowa-based Hawkeye Hotels is expanding its footprint in the Northeast. The company is positioned to develop additional hotels in the Pittsburgh area, across Pennsylvania and beyond. Hawkeye Hotels is also developing a 150-room Holiday Inn in Erie, which is under construction and expected to open in 2020.

"We are excited to explore further opportunities in Pittsburgh and surrounding markets as we continue to grow our development pipeline and hotel portfolio," said Om Patel, Director of Development for Hawkeye Hotels. "We look forward to developing new partnerships in this region."

Other notable Hawkeye Hotels properties in various stages of development include: the historic Hotel Fort Des Moines in downtown Des Moines, IA; three new hotels within one block of downtown Milwaukee; 14 hotels in the greater Minneapolis area; and two of the newest Moxy brand hotels by Marriott — in downtown Omaha and downtown St. Louis.

The Iowa-based company is venturing into the Northeast after developing, redeveloping and operating dozens of hotels in other regions of the US.

This particular Hampton Inn & Suites in Cranberry opened less than a year ago and includes modern designs, plus a fitness center, business center and indoor pool. A relatively new property, the guestrooms reflect the most up to date Hilton redesigns, with conveniences and space-savings items, such as mounted TVs and functional storage units.

Located in central Cranberry, this Hampton Inn & Suites serves one of the fastest growing areas in the Pittsburgh metro area. Easily accessible points of interest include Cranberry Commons and Cranberry Woods Office Park, which houses the world headquarters campus for Westinghouse Electric Corporation, the Township's largest employer.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
