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.”

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
