Sweet, comfortable hotel with character in downtown Davenport. Check in was quick and friendly. The lobby is traditional and comfortable with free local paper, the WSJ, and even bowls of fresh fruit. The room was large, minimalist in design and tasteful. Comfortable bed, super clean bathroom with separate shower and tub. We had a corner room, which had two windows for plenty of sunlight. Large closet, refrigerator, microwave. The hotel has a spa (next time for sure,) barbershop, small gift store, attached bowling alley ($35 an hour) and a coffee shop. We enjoyed fantastic cocktails and bar menu items (a grouper sandwich in Iowa!) in the lobby bar/bistro. A special treat was the daily popcorn with our favorite being the cinnamon sugar. The hotel has an indoor pool which was nice and quiet in the morning, with a comfortable outdoor lounge for fresh air. We stayed over a weekend which likely explained why the pool was loud with lots of little kids far too late into the evening, so if you plan to swim, go early. The hotel has free parking and is a quick walk to downtown attractions. Our local friends told us President Obama has stayed here twice, so.....you know it's that good!
