"At Hawkeye Hotels, we love investing in communities where there hasn't been a fresh new product in years to help spur local economic development," said Om Patel, director of development for Hawkeye Hotels. "Our new Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Ottawa is an example of this. We’re extremely excited to be a part of this community."


Ground was broken and construction began on the hotel in December 2017.
