Hotel Blackhawk, Autograph Collection
Ranked #2 of 26 Hotels in Davenport
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Fifty years ago this was THE place to stay in Davenport, Iowa. We think it has returned to it's former status with a Marriott connection and serious decorator-quality vibe. From the uncovered stained glass ceiling in reception to the TV screen in the bathroom mirror there are good reasons to like this place. The only negative we found was a need to upgrade bathroom towels and replace starched-like sheets. The staff we encountered were exceptionally hospitable!!

Room Tip: Try the coffee shop pastries!

Dear GoneAgain02,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Hotel Blackhawk on TripAdvisor. Also, thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent trip to Davenport. Your comments are extremely kind. Becoming part of the Autograph Collection has been very special for us. Our guests have really enjoyed the fact that they can now receive Marriott Rewards during their time spent with us. Our stained glass lobby ceiling is definitely something that we would also suggest people come check out. All of the details that went into our renovation are what make the hotel so unique. Thank you so much for your comments.

We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back to Hotel Blackhawk very soon.

I stayed here for one evening in early March and found this hotel to be at the top of the list. My flight arrived late after their complimentary shuttle was done for the evening. The arranged for a taxi to be waiting at the airport for me. Upon arrival the check-in process was quick and painless.

The room was a corner king room and was quite large. The bed was great, bathroom was large with lots of nice touches including a TV in the mirror. It was equipped with a tub and separate shower. Their is a large closet, work area and lounge chair.

This property has been renovated to a high standard. There is a full service restaurant as well as a coffee shop in the hotel. Located right downtown, it is only a few blocks to the river, casino and ball park.

If you are looking for a great hotel that will take you back to a time of luxury you will not go wrong.

Back in the 60’s, my grandmother was a desk clerk at the old Blackhawk Hotel . Way before the grand renovations. Sadly it seemed, the place had fallen to pieces. I admit, I had not been back in years. Wow! I stopped there in November and what a spectacular difference. The Blackhawk is an absolute! Keep it up! Bravo!

Dear abes92,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Hotel Blackhawk on TripAdvisor. Wow- that is so neat to hear that your grandmother was a desk clerk at The Blackhawk Hotel in the 60's. The owners of Hotel Blackhawk, Amy and Amrit Gill, had a vision of bringing back the history and luxury that everyone remembered it by, but wanted to tie in the modern feel. I think that they did an outstanding job as well, and I will be sure to pass along your kind words.

Thanks again for your words of encouragement and support. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Quad Cities Hip & Historic Landmark Hotel very soon.

Not quite sure what it takes to receive a 4 star rating, but the hotel blackhawk is first class all the way and is 4 stars in my opinion. Stayed here in late march on a friday night, we booked on priceline for $62. I completely disagree with the previous reviewer about the location. The blackhawk is in downtown davenport, cant change that, but as far as davenport goes, the location is great. If youre going to a show at the Adler Theatre, its actually connected to the hotel. Very close to the art museum, casino, and close to the mississippi. Attention to detail is superior all over the hotel. I loved that the bottles of water in the fridge in the room was $2 and the snickers as well, the television in the bathroom mirror was just cool as hell. This place would be amazing for a wedding reception, company party, or even a childrens birthday party in the basement bowling alley. I look forward to booking here again.

Room Tip: wait till a few days before your stay and name your own on priceline, 3.5 stars, davenport.

The hotel is very beautiful. The rooms are updated and nice. The location is terrible. Downtown Davenport did not have any attractions or shopping that I would recommend. The worst part about the hotel is parking. My husband and I arrived back at the hotel late on a Saturday night and had to vulture park. The front desk attendant told us that we would have to park on the street or pay to park in a garage. I would only go back if I was planning to stay in my hotel room for the whole trip.

Had my 16 year old daughters party downstairs and what I night for her to remember. Great service, good fun, DJ, bowling, dancing. I cant begin to tell you about the fun that these kids had. I would recommend this venue to anyone. I will go back. My daughter lost Her leather jacket and I called the next morning and the friendly staff located it for us. Our friends have stayed in the hotel and have mentioned how nice it is. I have viewed the food menu's and at a glance the food seemed to be loaded with higher quality items. Yet the bar offers basic foods.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but parking not so much

Decided to stay at the Davenport Hotel while in town for the John Deere Factory Tour. My wife and I arrived after 6 hours of driving thru a great blizzard . The friendly door man grabbed our luggage and took us to check in and then up to our room. This grand Hotel has been remodeled back to the great hotels of 100 years ago. Door man showed us all the workings of our room, great corner room with huge windows and upscale furniture . Had dinner at the Bix Bistro, great menu offering wild bore . Staff was very well trained and friendly. Swimming pool on 3rd floor and bowling alley in the basement. If we every get back to Davenport , this will be our first stop.
