DAVENPORT, IA—The Current, an art-focused hotel located on West 2nd St. and North Main, is scheduled to open here this summer. Positioned one block away from The Figge Art Museum, The Current flies the flag of the Marriott Autograph Collection like its sister property Hotel Blackhawk, which is two blocks away. Innkeeper Hospitality Services (IHS) of St. Louis manages both hotels.
The Current aims provide a “hipstoric” experience in the heart of the Quad Cities, according to the company. Housed in the last building completed by American architect Daniel Burnham, the new hotel will honor its local roots while reinterpreting what comfort means for the modern traveler.
Art adorns the walls, with pieces from many of the Midwest’s premier and emerging artists. There are also vibrant creations from Hot Glass, an Iowa nonprofit, teaching art and life skills to underprivileged youth.
F&B venues include a rooftop restaurant and private tasting room.
There are 78 rooms on nine floors, with the seventh and eight floors dedicated to modern luxury apartments. Accommodations include a premier room, a one-bedroom suite, or a two-bedroom deluxe suite. Each suite features a kitchen as well as a washer and dryer. In addition, there are three meeting rooms, a fitness room, a swimming pool, access to a full spa, a club room, two restaurants, and a private dining room.
