January 28, 2019 12:45pm
BOSSIER CITY, LA – On Thursday, Iowa-based firm Hawkeye Hotels acquired the SpringHill Suites Shreveport-Bossier City/Louisiana Downs, a Marriott hotel in Bossier City, LA. This is the company's third Louisiana property. Hawkeye Hotels also acquired the Hilton Garden Inn in Baton Rouge and the Hotel Modern in New Orleans, which will soon re-brand as a Holiday Inn Express.
Located within three miles of both Barksdale Airforce Base and the Cyber Innovation Center, the property sits in front of Harrah's Louisiana Downs Casino and Racetrack. It is visible from both Interstates 20 and 220. The Red River District and the Louisiana Boardwalk are also in close proximity.
"This is the third Louisiana region where we have had the chance to work, and it has been a pleasure to develop a partnership with the city and other local stakeholders," said Samir Patel, Senior Development Manager for Hawkeye Hotels. “We see this particular SpringHill Suites as an exciting opportunity to help the Bossier City area continue to meet high demands for lodging."
With 150 guestrooms across 81,600 square feet, the SpringHill Suites also includes an indoor pool, fitness center, business center and free high-speed wireless internet. Hawkeye Hotels plans to oversee minor indoor renovations, in addition to surface repairs to the building's exterior.
Bossier City is the sister city of Shreveport, which lies just across the Red River. The Shreveport-Bossier City community is home to a large number of health systems, such as the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Shreveport, and several educational institutions, such as Louisiana State University Shreveport, Centenary College of Louisiana and Northwestern State University. The area also serves as a major hub for the film industry.
SpringHill Suites by Marriott is the upper moderate tier, largest all-suites style brand and consistently ranks among the top Marriott brands in guest satisfaction.
The transaction was brokered by Avison Young of Toronto.
