“Loved the bowling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

We didn't stay at the hotel but went to the bowling alley in the lower level of the hotel. They had several lanes and at the end of the alley were large televisions so you could watch the football game as well.

Exceptional hotel. Really stunning there is something so nice in a relatively small town. Makes you think about the time when Davenport was one of the largest cities in the US. Just a really nice place all around. The restaurant is pricey, but the rooms are such a great value, it didn't bother me.

While traveling back home from Chicago my wife came across this gem online. SInce it was her birthday, and we didn't have to get back right away, we decided to see what it was all about. Walking through the doors is like taking a trip back in time to the 1920's, but with a modern twist. Check-in was great, and when they found out it was my wifes birthday, the upgrades started flowing. Everyone went out of their way to make sure things were perfect. The room was gorgeous, king size bed on the 8th floor with a view overlooking the Mississippi, jacuzzi tub with seperate shower, floor to ceiling windows. Restaurant was outstanding and the service was top notch (thanks Matthew for making it a special night). The decor throughout reminded me of the Peabody in Memphis, minus the ducks. Elegance and splendor everywhere! The bowling alley in the lower level is a nice touch and was a neat escape. Thank you for a wonderful time and creating memories for us. We will be sure to visit again, and I know our friends will be stopping by also.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side will provide a view of the Mississippi river. Make sure that you get above t...

Picked this hotel for a one day biz trip to Davenport. Must admit choice was based on quick glance at reviews. First impression upon arrival was that I should have been wearing a tuxedo. Very grand and glamorous. 1940's elegance.

Hotel has been completely refurbished. Staff was friendly and competent. Room service actually called me and asked if they could remove tray. Room was quite comfortable and clean. Great bathroom.

Was surprised there was no free breakfast buffet. Great place for a wedding, a honeymoon or vacation traveling. Not my cup of tea as a business traveler. Room price was a bit high, but was acceptable.

No real complaints, just not my type of ambiance.

Was in town with a friend to watch a volleyball tournament at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois. Got a phenomenal Priceline deal ($65/night). This hotel was beautiful throughout. They upgraded our standard queen room to a suite. Incredible amenities. Went down to the bowling lane/bar for a nightcap of Pumpkin Martinis. Delicious. Had a fabulous breakfast in the morning. Will try and stay here the next 3 years my daughter's college team is in the tournament!!

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Blackhawk while visiting our daughter at Augustana. Illinois people, don't overlook this awesome hotel just over the river! Davenport, and Hotel Blackhawk, have much more to offer than the Moline area hotels we've stayed in in the past (sorry, Moline). The hotel is in a walking area of downtown Davenport, making it very easy to enjoy the city while moving between venues for shopping, dining, arts, and the casino. The hotel has a spa, Spa Luce, where I enjoyed a couple of services. A popular event at Spa Luce is the men's shave. Interestingly, when I was awaiting my service, there was a problem with the booking of another guest's service. I was able to see how the spa responded to the appointment mixup and satisfy the customer without drawing undue attention to the issue. For the locals, the hotel has a beautiful banquet room on the second floor that is very appropriate for receptions. There is a coffee shop on the first floor that is a little quirky (you must be patient), but does serve Starbucks coffee. Parking was free and simple, service was thoughtful, and our room looked exactly the same as the photo of the room on the hotel's website.
