The Current Iowa

The Current Iowa is a Marriott-branded hotel located in the heart of Downtown Davenport. This contemporary AAA Four-Diamond hotel has many meeting and social spaces available to guests and is perfect for visitors traveling from afar or locals who want a staycation.

With the ideal location downtown, there is many things to do within walking distance of The Current Iowa. There are several restaurants located directly across the street, including a public plaza that has live music during the warmer months. Not only is there a vast nightlife in Downtown Davenport, but a short five-minute walk away is hipster-style lounge coffee shop, 392 Caffe, along with many shops to explore during your stay.

Davenport is located within the Quad Cities (QC) of Iowa, which includes Davenport and Bettendorf, Iowa and Rock Island and Moline, Illinois. These cluster of cities make for an ideal trip to the QC, as you can venture to different cities, all within a day. A unique way to travel from one city to another is by the Channel Cat Water Taxi. This water taxi allows you to hop on and off to different destinations located right on the Mississippi River. The Channel Cat is open 11 a.m. to 7:40 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 7:15 p.m. on weekends.

East Davenport and Bettendorf have many stylish boutique shops to include in your travel plans. Davenport is also home to many breweries, rooftop spots and minor league sports teams, including the Cities River Bandits, which is a minor league baseball team. Because the Quad Cities is located on the Mississippi River, there are many amenities and activities on and near the water.

The Current Iowa has many artistic features located within the hotel that make for those perfect Instagram-worthy pictures. A few include a giant stuffed teddy bear and cow sculpture (when in Iowa!) These artistic touches are also included in each hotel room, where you can find various paintings, pictures and decorative pieces.

There is no shortage of luxury when it comes to The Current. The lush design with bright white walls, mixed with the darker furniture pieces and gold accents, make you feel like an A-list celebrity. Amenities include two state-of-the-art fitness centers, an indoor pool and hot tub, and a rooftop bar and restaurant that includes crafted cocktails and light bites. The views from UP Skybar are outstanding; grab a drink in the evening or start your day with breakfast on the top of the building.

Even though there are many contemporary features, this hotel has a lot of history as well. The building is more than 100 years old and still has some of the original flooring. It was the first skyscraper in Davenport and was originally a department store and office building.

The Current Iowa also allows pets, complimentary on-site parking, complimentary WiFi, a Keurig and mini fridge with water bottles in each room, room service, shuttle service (pre-COVID) and a full-service business center, to name a few.
