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.”

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather. 

 

The corporate world spends an estimated $242 billion on gifts for employees and customers, according to Forbes. Wouldn’t it be rewarding if the purchasing and giving of these types of gifts offered meaningful work for veterans, women, and their children?
