PROJECT HISTORY

Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center, a 140 room Northwoods inspired four-story hotel in downtown Moline, opened its doors to the public in 2005.  The hotel is a $12 million structure located just two blocks from the John Deere Commons and was part of Phase II of the Bass Street Landing project.  The property is actually the 10th Stoney Creek to be built.

The inn is the first for Stoney Creek in a downtown and has proved to be a valuable investment for both Moline and the Stoney Creek brand.  Adjacent to Stoney Creek and opened for the use is the $1.3 million Plaza on Bass Street Landing.  The area has a zero-entry interactive fountain, a concert/festival space, and dining and retail options.  Stoney Creek rests right on Moline’s bike path so visitors can bring their gear and enjoy the trails.

The hotel hosted 55,000 guests in their first year of operation and is the second of two hotels that sit in downtown Moline, the other is the Radisson on the John Deere Commons. 

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION

Stoney Creek offers a unique spin on downtown architecture, indoor and out.  It’s rustic log cabin feel is carried throughout the hotel and Conference Room.  The conference space has attracted many local and state wide shows, job fairs, and expos as the number of total conference space in downtown Moline has increased.

The Conference area at Stoney Creek Inn can hold up to 450-500 guests with its 12,000 square feet of space.  Already wedding parties and trade shows have flocked to the new space.  The hotel also has within it Blackwater Jack’s Saloon, a bar for the average traveler to relax and feel comfortable.  Accents around the hotel compliment the Mississippi and adjacent Bass Street Landing property.

There is a heated indoor/outdoor pool for guests.  The hotel has ten extended-stay themed suites that cater to couples or families—some rooms come with bunk beds, fireplaces, hot tubs, and a kitchen.

Amenities include an expanded continental breakfast, Northwoods Traveler Program, wireless Internet access and a movie theater. Glass elevator in the lobby, business center, guest laundry, and fitness center complete the package.

“We set about creating and delivering an atmosphere, attitude and commitment similar to the atmosphere found in our nation’s Northwoods – warm, cozy, with a touch of home comfort, plus the fun and peace of mind that comes from relaxing in the wilderness.”

 

Project Successes

Renew Moline's successful collaboration with local, state and federal government agencies has resulted in a nearly $400 million investment in renovation and newly built properties in Moline's downtown, riverfront area.  And more is planned!

These investments have created jobs and returned energy to the old downtown. Over 2,000 people now work full time in downtown and nearly 600 fill part-time roles. Approximately half of these jobs have been created by the redevelopment that has taken place so far.  And more than 2,000 construction jobs have resulted from the projects now in place.
