This week Hawkeye Hotels further expanded into the Northeast region with the opening of the new Holiday Inn Erie, located south of downtown Erie. This is the company’s second property in Pennsylvania.
“As we open Holiday Inn Erie, we honor the hard work of our team over many months - the deliberate planning, collaboration with the community, and careful execution - particularly during a nationwide pandemic,” said Om Patel of Hawkeye Hotels. “It has been rewarding to collaborate with local business and government to provide this type of community asset, which supports Erie’s local economy in many ways beyond tourism.”
Holiday Inn Erie is committed to fostering and maintaining strong relationships with local businesses and community organizations.
“We are excited to welcome the new Holiday Inn Erie to the area. They are a shining representation of Erie’s tourism product expansion, providing a well-known brand option to the traveling public," said John Oliver, President and CEO and VisitErie. "We applaud the efforts of the Holiday Inn Erie for their commitment to Erie and helping to grow our economy.”
Holiday Inn Erie provides 150 guest rooms, complete with functional work space. A modern, fresh and functional design aesthetic includes neutral tones and cool blue and green hues in this new construction.
The hotel also contains 1200 square feet of meeting space. A fitness center is available 24-7, in addition to an indoor pool. The in-house restaurant Toast to Toast is open for breakfast and dinner.
All rooms and amenities are available immediately and adhere to the IHG “Way of Clean” rigorous cleaning standards and procedures.
Close by attractions for visitors include the Millcreek Mall Complex, with over 195 shops and restaurants. Within a short drive are additional attractions, such as the Erie Zoo, Waldameer Water World, Splash Pad water park, Asbury Woods and the Erie Maritime Museum. The hotel is conveniently located nine miles from the Erie airport at 2260 Downs Drive.
