The twin nine-story hotels will offer upscale comforts for both leisure and business travellers, a distinctive ninth floor lounge with panoramic river views, as well as access to miles of unobstructed riverfront and a bald eagle habitat.
The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels anchor The Bend, a master-planned mixed-use development that brings retail, lodging, restaurants, apartments, offices, and other amenities to a 132-acre site.
With three acres of greenspace, including a mile of waterfront along the river and miles of river pathways along the Great River Trail, hotel guests can enjoy immediate access to the nature and beauty of the Mississippi River.
Additionally, the hotels will provide a prime spot for viewing the impressive display of bald eagles wintering in their natural riverside habitat from December through March.
Guests will have a choice of two different hotel experiences under one roof: The Hyatt Place hotel for nightly stays and a 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 hotels.
Located just 15 minutes from the Quad City International Airport (MLI), the hotels will provide easy access to nearby corporate and educational facilities, including Deere & Company World Headquarters, KONE, Alcoa, The Sedona Group, Von Maur, Rock Island Arsenal, Augustana College, and Western Illinois University.
Every room will feature a view of the Mississippi River.
The River Room, which will offer floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of the Mississippi River, is a ninth-floor lounge and elevated gathering space that will offer local brews, craft cocktails and light snacks.
