Hyatt Place East Moline/Quad Cities and Hyatt House East Moline Quad/Cities, situated along the Mississippi River in East Moline, Illinois, are set to open this December. The hotels are twin nine-story hotels where every room has a view of the Mississippi, and each hotel has a ninth-floor lounge and gathering space that offer views of the river and prime bald eagle spotting. 

The twin hotels bring upscale accommodations to the Quad Cities region, helping to draw in business and leisure guests, with luxury amenities and 1,100 feet of meeting space. These hotels will anchor The Bend, a 132-acre site with retail, lodging, restaurants, apartments, offices, and more.  Located just 15 minutes from the Quad City International Airport (MLI), the hotels will also provide easy access to nearby corporate and educational facilities, as well as area attractions. 

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. The layout of the dual-branded hotels will offer a large, single lobby serving both Hyatt Place and Hyatt House guests. 

The hotels also boast several amenities, including a restaurant & bar, a fitness center, an indoor pool, and a business center. 

Jumpstarting tourism in cities across the country will be more complicated than simply opening doors again – especially in cities with large populations like Chicago. However, working together proves more effective, and in Chicago, more than 250 businesses are banding together to join Choose Chicago’s new initiative, Tourism & Hospitality Forward. It bolsters a safe reopening that encourages tourism as well as meetings and events in

 

The new reality for in-person meetings and events is coming into focus. While gatherings were cancelled or went virtual during the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic, states are now slowly beginning to reopen and move toward a return to in-person gatherings. Associated Luxury Hotels International, or ALHI, published safety recommendations for planners, hotels, airlines and more, as society begins to formulate safety guidelines for travel, tourism, meetings and events.  

 

The U.S. Travel Association has called the current moment the “Great Travel Depression,” in light of the economic effects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.
