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.
