Olympia Hotel Management has been chosen to manage Hyatt Place & Hyatt House Quad Cities in East Moline, Illinois. The showcase hotel project features the 134-room Hyatt Place hotel and 99-room Hyatt House hotel.

"We are thrilled to continue building upon a strong relationship with Olympia Hotel Management on another great project," says Mark Younadam, vice president of real estate and development for Hyatt. "We continue to see a growing trend with dual-brand hotels, which lets guests choose the right setting for their needs. Whether our guests are in town for vacation, work relocation or long-term corporate projects, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House Quad Cities will be the perfect fit for the vibrant setting of this highly-anticipated development."

The nine-story hotel marks the first Hyatt dual-branded hotels in the Quad Cities. The Hyatt Place will offer nightly stays for guests whereas the Hyatt House will be available for extended stays. Amenities include a full service restaurant, meeting facilities and a signature rooftop lounge. There will also be a large single lobby serving guests of both hotels, providing plenty of space to have a shared social experience that many travelers desire. The hotels are scheduled to open in spring 2018.

“We’re excited to partner with Legat Architects and Hyatt Hotels once again,” says John Schultzel, vice president, hotel management for The Olympia Companies. “This is another terrific opportunity for Olympia to play an active role in a transformative project, this time in the Quad Cities.”

The lounge, designed by DMAC Architecture, is approximately 1,800 square feet of comfortable chairs with charging ports, betting terminals and a gaming floor. With walls covered in high definition televsions, Rivers Sportsbook allows guests to place bets on several different games rather than just focusing on one.
