Keokuk, Iowa (February 15, 2017) - Baymont Inn & Suites has named Dora Hospitality Group as the new management company of its 80-room hotel located at 325 Main Street.

  The Dora Hospitality Group is a third-generation hotel management company with over 60 years of experience in the industry.  The company, known for its "hands-on" attention to every property, develops and operates both branded and boutique hotels, with a focus on the Midwestern United States.

"We are extremely excited to be taking over management of the hotel, which has been a Keokuk landmark since the 1960s," said Vince Dora, President of Dora Hospitality.  "We have already begun making some positive changes since our takeover in January, and we have every intention of bringing it back to its former position as a tourism driver for the Keokuk community." 

As part of the plan for Dora Hospitality's management takeover, the company will be overseeing a multi-million dollar renovation, set to happen towards the end of 2017.  Renovations are to include enhancements to guest rooms, public spaces, the indoor pool, fitness center, and the 3,500 square feet of meeting space.

The Baymont Inn & Suites, whose parent company is Wyndham Worldwide, focuses on delivering "warm, inviting, and neighborly service" with a "hometown hospitality" feel.  Located on Main Street right in the heart of downtown Keokuk, the Baymont is close to hiking, biking, restaurants, shopping, and historic sites.
