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.

Human Resources: An Era of Transition

Traditionally, the human resource department administers five key areas within a hotel operation - compliance, compensation and benefits, organizational dynamics, selection and retention, and training and development. However, HR professionals are also presently involved in culture-building activities, as well as implementing new employee on-boarding practices and engagement initiatives. As a result, HR professionals have been elevated to senior leadership status, creating value and profit within their organization. Still, they continue to face some intractable issues, including a shrinking talent pool and the need to recruit top-notch employees who are empowered to provide outstanding customer service. In order to attract top-tier talent, one option is to take advantage of recruitment opportunities offered through colleges and universities, especially if they have a hospitality major. This pool of prospective employees is likely to be better educated and more enthusiastic than walk-in hires. Also, once hired, there could be additional training and development opportunities that stem from an association with a college or university. Continuing education courses, business conferences, seminars and online instruction - all can be a valuable source of employee development opportunities. In addition to meeting recruitment demands in the present, HR professionals must also be forward-thinking, anticipating the skills that will be needed in the future to meet guest expectations. One such skill that is becoming increasingly valued is “resilience”, the ability to “go with the flow” and not become overwhelmed by the disruptive influences  of change and reinvention. In an era of transition—new technologies, expanding markets, consolidation of brands and businesses, and modifications in people's values and lifestyles - the capacity to remain flexible, nimble and resilient is a valuable skill to possess. The March Hotel Business Review will examine some of the strategies that HR professionals are employing to ensure that their hotel operations continue to thrive.
