Davenport, IA – Say hello to The Current: the stylish new hotel that places an emphasis on beauty, fun, and an artful approach to guest service.

The Current is located on West 2nd St. and North Main in downtown Davenport, Iowa, and is perfectly positioned one block away from the Figge Art Museum.  Combining Midwestern hospitality with youthful energy, The Current provides a “hipstoric” experience in the heart of the Quad Cities.  The Current flies the flag of the Marriott Autograph Collection, a portfolio of exceptional one-of-a-kind hotels owned by Marriott International, Inc. - like its big sister hotel (Hotel Blackhawk) two blocks away.

Everything needed for a fun and luxurious stay awaits you at The Current.  Housed in the last building completed by iconic American architect Daniel Burnham, The Current honors its local roots while reinterpreting what comfort means for the modern traveler.

Step into the lobby and immediately become immersed in the dazzling art that adorns the walls.  The Current sources pieces from many of the Midwest’s premier and emerging artists. Further showcasing The Current’s commitment to both beauty and community, the hotel also features vibrant creations from Hot Glass, an Iowa nonprofit, teaching art and life skills to underprivileged youth.

The Current is far more than just a hotel name.  It embodies the buzzy energy that imbues every square foot of the building, captures the hotel’s focus on providing a contemporary and exciting guest experience, and reflects the literal movement of the nearby majestic Mississippi River.  In the rooftop bar called Up, breakfast is accompanied by a gorgeous sunrise over the mighty Mississippi, or return for cocktails to watch the sunset.  For lunch or dinner, enjoy Baja cuisine in Viva that follows in the top notch-yet-unstuffy style of chefs like Rick Bayless and Diana Kennedy, and visit the private tasting room to raise a glass to a truly remarkable hotel in the heart of the Midwest.

Like its sibling, Hotel Blackhawk, The Current effortlessly blends old-world charm with modern amenities.  Both hotels are managed by Innkeeper Hospitality Services (IHS) of St. Louis.  The Current comprises 78 rooms on 9 floors, with the seventh and eight floors dedicated to modern luxury apartments.  Guests of The Current may choose to stay in a premier room, a one-bedroom suite, or a two-bedroom deluxe suite; all are elegantly appointed with plenty of surprise amenities, and each suite features a kitchen as well as a washer and dryer.  Always attentive to guests’ comfort, The Current offers three meeting rooms, a fitness room, a swimming pool, access to a full spa, a club room, two restaurants, and a private dining room.

The Current is slated to open in July 26, 2017.

Located right on the Mississippi River, Moline/East Moline and Rock Island are the riverfront cities in Illinois, and Bettendorf and Davenport make up the cities on the Iowa side of the river.  Together, these cities and the surrounding communities make up the Quad Cities.
