I chose to stay here as there is quite a lack of nice hotels in the Quad Cities area, and I was not disappointed. The room was extremely clean and the bed was comfortable. It was a little confusing upon arriving at the hotel through the entrance that is on the parking lot, I assumed the desk right there was the check-in desk, though the lady was nice enough to show me the way. I read something about valet, but didn't see anything along those lines. The bellman was nice and told me a little about the hotel and how the key system worked. I like the idea of having secured floors.
The bowling alley in the basement seemed nice, but I didn't stop for a drink as there was a party wrapping up, and I was getting looks like I didn't belong there, though the bartender upstairs did tell me that it was open to everyone at 9pm. The main level bar does have a great drink selection, prices are a little high, but that's to be expected in a full service hotel. The pour of scotch I received definitely justified the price of the drink.
I had breakfast is the coffee shop each morning, which also served starbucks (I honestly don't care either way), but the coffee was always good, and the staff was friendly.
All in all, this was a great hotel with wonderful and friendly staff, and tons of amenities.
