Hyatt Place East Moline/Quad Cities and Hyatt House East Moline/Quad Cities Are Set to Open on the Mississippi River

USA, East Moline, Illinois. December 04, 2018

Situated along the Mississippi River in East Moline, Illinois, Hyatt Place East Moline/Quad Cities and Hyatt House East/Moline Quad Cities are expected to open in December 2018. The twin nine-story hotels will offer upscale comforts for both leisure and business travelers, a distinctive ninth floor lounge with panoramic river views, as well as access to miles of unobstructed riverfront and a bald eagle habitat. They promise to be the most compelling hotel options in the Quad Cities. 

The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels anchor The Bend, a master-planned mixed-use development that brings retail, lodging, restaurants, apartments, offices, and other amenities to a 132-acre site. With three acres of greenspace, including a mile of waterfront along the river and miles of river pathways along the Great River Trail, business and leisure travelers can enjoy immediate access to the nature and beauty of the Mississippi River. Additionally, the hotels will provide a prime spot for viewing the impressive display of bald eagles wintering in their natural riverside habitat from December through March.

LODGING THAT WILL SERVE COLLEGES, CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS AND BALD EAGLE HABITAT

Managed by Olympia Hotel Management, the new Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties are expected to be game changers in the Quad Cities region of Illinois and Iowa, bringing much-needed upscale lodging accommodations to the area.

Business and leisure guests will have a choice of two different hotel experiences under one roof: a 134-room Hyatt Place hotel for nightly stays and a 99-room Hyatt House hotel with apartment-style guestrooms that will offer more space and kitchenettes for extended stays. Guests will be able to choose the right setting for their needs - whether that's a quick business trip, vacation, a work relocation, or a long-term corporate project. The layout of the dual-branded hotels will offer a large, single lobby serving both Hyatt Place and Hyatt House guests, as well as plenty of space to have the kind of shared social experiences travelers desire today.

Located just 15 minutes from the Quad City International Airport (MLI), the hotels will provide easy access to nearby corporate and educational facilities, including Deere & Company World Headquarters, KONE, Alcoa, The Sedona Group, Von Maur, Rock Island Arsenal, Augustana College, and Western Illinois University. For leisure guests, area attractions include the exhibits at the John Deere Pavilion, the extraordinary collection at the renowned Figge Art Museum and concerts at the TaxSlayer® Center. 

ROOMS WITH A RIVER VIEW FOR A NIGHT OR AN EXTENDED STAY

The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels will offer guestrooms with flexible work spaces and relaxation areas, and every room will feature a majestic view of the Mississippi River. All Hyatt Place guestrooms will feature the brand's signature Cozy Corner, a comfortable, “l-shaped” sofa-sleeper, a wet-dry bar, and a bathroom vanity with granite countertops. Hyatt House guestrooms will feature spacious living rooms and kitchenettes. Both hotels will offer free, wireless high-speed internet.

Mobile Technology: The Future is Now

Mobile Technology continues to advance at a relentless pace and the hotel industry continues to adapt. Hotel guests have shown a strong preference for mobile self-service - from checking-in/out at a hotel kiosk, to ordering room service, making dinner reservations, booking spa treatments, and managing laundry/dry cleaning services. And they also enjoy the convenience of paying for these services with smart phone mobile payments. In addition, some hotels have adopted a “concierge in your pocket” concept. Through a proprietary hotel app, guests can access useful information such as local entertainment venues, tourist attractions, event calendars, and medical facilities and services. In-room entertainment continues to be a key factor, as guests insist on the capacity to plug in their own mobile devices to customize their entertainment choices. Mobile technology also allows for greater marketing opportunities. For example, many hotels have adopted the use of “push notifications” - sending promotions, discounts and special event messages to guests based on their property location, purchase history, profiles, etc. Near field communication (NFC) technology is also being utilized to support applications such as opening room doors, earning loyalty points, renting a bike, accessing a rental car, and more. Finally, some hotels have adopted more futuristic technology. Robots are in use that have the ability to move between floors to deliver room service requests for all kinds of items - food, beverages, towels, toothbrushes, chargers and snacks. And infrared scanners are being used by housekeeping staff that can detect body heat within a room, alerting staff that the room is occupied and they should come back at a later time. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in this exciting mobile technology space.
