DAVENPORT – The Iowa-based firm Hawkeye Hotels last week assumed ownership of the Radisson Quad City Plaza in Davenport and plans to renovate the property. This hotel on Second Street makes the firm’s fifteenth in Iowa and second in the Quad Cities.

Currently the hotel offers 221 rooms, 9,200 square feet of meeting space and a climate-controlled, covered skywalk for convenient guest access to the RiverCenter Convention center and Adler Theater. The location offers quick access to Davenport’s downtown hub for entertainment, business and shopping.

“When we see this type of pragmatic opportunity to invest more in our home state, it’s a win-win for both our company and the state of Iowa,” said John Hall, CFO of Hawkeye Hotels. “We believe we can contribute to the city’s thriving business environment and look forward to helping Davenport grow.”

The Radisson Quad City Plaza currently includes a heated indoor pool, fitness center, 24-hour business center and free airport shuttle. Nearby attractions include the Historic Village of East Davenport, North Park Mall and Figge Art Museum.

“Our acquisition and renovation of this hotel will breathe new life to a property that has been a staple of Davenport for the last 20 years,” said Samir Patel, Development Manager for Hawkeye Hotels.

The hotel supports steady demand from government entities and major corporations, such as John Deere, United Healthcare, Chase, US Bank and Wells Fargo. Local educational institutions also contribute to steady demand. Aside from Augustana University, community colleges and university satellite campuses in the Quad Cities include: Black 
Hawk College, Eastern Iowa Community College, Saint Ambrose University, Upper Iowa University and Western Illinois University Quad Cities.

The third-largest city in Iowa, Davenport represents about 100,000 of the greater MSA’s 380,000 population and boasts beautiful views of the Mississippi River. The Rock Island Arsenal, Lee Enterprises and Von Maur department store are additional major employers.
