Accommodations and Venue




The beauty of the original Radio-Keith-Orpheum’s Art Deco style was reflected in its gold leaf ceiling, crystal light fixtures and black ebony, walnut and marble detail. Much of that original movie theatre style remains and continues to recall the rich history of the Adler Theatre.


Resplendent from a multimillion-dollar renovation, The Hotel Blackhawk (formerly The Blackhawk Hotel) once again reigns supreme as the grande dame of Davenport, Iowa. Since it first opened in 1915, the hotel has served as a home away from home for families, romantics, presidents, movie stars and legendary athletes alike.

Now, this majestic landmark reopens with a “something old something new” approach to hospitality and a fresh new focus on modern amenities and rich décor— and all the while keeping a hand in the past under the direction of an artful restoration team.



The River Music Experience (RME) exists to give Quad-City residents and visitors opportunities to experience America's music, and most especially the music of the Mississippi River, through live music performances and programs which nurture, educate and inspire musicians, and music appreciators.
In short...The RME is a non-profit performing arts center providing opportunities for the community to listen to, learn about, and play music.
