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.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
