Set along the banks of the Mississippi River, The Current Iowa pays homage to Midwestern artists in its soulful design.

The final completed work of architect Daniel Burnham, The Current Iowa lays claim to some of the finest rooftop views in the Quad Cities. Inside, the hotel houses the work of Davenport’s most celebrated artists.

Built in the Chicago School style, the use of steel-frame with masonry cladding, The Current’s red brick and terracotta exterior gives way to a stunning entrance complete with a glass chandelier unique to the building. Distinctive local style is at the heart of The Current, with digital art displays in the lobby and works by emerging Midwest talent throughout the hotel. This blending of old-world charm and modern art gallery style is no mistake – The Current is next door to the Figge Art Museum, home to the largest collection in the area.
