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.

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
