The Current Iowa rooftop

The Current Iowa, the latest hotel renovation project from Restoration St. Louis, is set to open July 26. The boutique hotel includes the region's largest rooftop bar and restaurant, called Up, seen here under construction last month. 

The rooftop restaurant and bar are indoor/outdoor and overlook the Mississippi.

The artwork is handpicked, having never been near an assembly line.

And the St. Louis power couple, Amy and Amrit Gill, are pushing onward the trend they started at the beginning of this decade with the ground-up renovation of the Hotel Blackhawk — the Quad-Cities' first so-called boutique hotel.

The brand new Current Iowa hotel, opening next week at 2nd and Main streets in Davenport, is an all-suite offering with two restaurants and assorted amenities.

Details about the area's newest, one-of-a-kind hotel have been at the heart of efforts by Times reporters Jennifer DeWitt and Amanda Hancock to bring the Current Iowa to the pages of our Sunday Big Story. Our all-access pass also means photos galore, along with updates on two other boutique hotels that are in the works in Moline.
