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.

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
