Greetings from


We would like to welcome you to our hotel – and to the great state of Iowa! Our hotel is housed within the historic Putnam building. We proudly showcase local and regional art throughout the hotel, and each guest room is filled with unique works by midwestern artists! Every room has a piece of glass made by students of the local nonprofit group Hot Glass, a one-of-a-kind ceramic sculpture by Steve Jones, and a combination of original paintings and prints from many other regional artists.

The tag found in your room is one of many located throughout the hotel to guide you on your own independent tour of our art collection! If you’re interested in a guided, behind-the-scenes look, stop by the front desk to schedule a tour with a member of our creative team! Or, feel free to send an email to the team directly: thecurrentiowa.art@gmail.com

“Have fun exploring our duds and taking on the town!” – Bessie the Cow

Author: thecurrentiowablog

From porters in stylish duds to original contemporary artwork in every room and one-of-a-kind spaces to host meetings and social gatherings, we put an artful spin on the meaning of luxury at The Current ~ Iowa. Built by renowned architect Daniel Burnham on the site of Davenport's first hotel, our AAA Four Diamond-rated hotel in the heart of downtown Davenport offers breathtaking views of the Mighty Mississippi as well as the opportunity to earn Marriott Rewards with the Marriott Autograph Collection. Whether you're visiting for business or pleasure, you're sure to enjoy our state-of-the-ART fitness center, pool, business centers, and club lounge. Every event at The Current is sure to wow: from the sun rising over the outdoor patio of UP’s rooftop restaurant and lounge, to evening cocktails in Viva’s private tequila aging and tasting room & gallery. This is where history meets hip culture. #hipstoric.
