Chickee fell off her perch flapping about changing to Quality, so that is where we be.

Motel 6
I-74 at Airport Road, Exit #5-B
2359 69th Avenue
Moline, IL 61265

Phone: (309) 764-8711
Fax: (309) 762-4092

5 nights from the 8th to the 13th is $200.75 if you use the online reservations and use the CLICK 6 RATE.

The weekend is a little higher.
There is an AARP discount if you go through AARP but I found that AAA when I went to San Diego was not as cheap as the online rate.

For those of you with cars there are several good hotels outside the city that are cheap.

Does anyone know if there is a very good Bed & Breakfast in the Quad City area?

I would love to stay here sometime - beautiful on the outside, never been inside:

This converted Romanesque monastery sits upon a bluff overlooking downtown Bettendorf and the Mississippi River. The Gothic-style Abbey, which dates from the late 19th century, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the owners took great care in restoring the home to its original splendor. Ideal for business travelers, the inn features 19 comfortable guest rooms, each of which includes marble bathroom, cable television and dataport; the best guest rooms offer unmatched views of the Mississippi River. Banquet facilities to 325.

The Abbey Hotel


This one is also a nice one:

Description: DOWNTOWN DAVENPORT. Located on the campus of Davenport's St. Ambrose, this unique bed and breakfast dates from the late 19th century, when it was constructed as the home of the Bishop of Davenport Catholic Diocese. Today, the beautifully restored Italianate mansion offers guests to the Quad Cities the chance to live in the lap of luxury during their stay. Each of the immaculate guest rooms features period antiques, marble shower or claw-foot tub, and large bed, ceiling fan and en-suite facilities. Conference/meeting space to 125.


Bishop's House Inn

You are really tempting me with this great info on The Abbey.

Is it a reasonable drive to the Holiday Inn convention site?

I found a great site with info on Quad Cities and a map too.

The main site is http://www.visitquadcities.com/2004/

The map is http://www.visitquadcities.com/2004/map.html and it lists 11 B & Bs.
Thing may be a little out of date like with all travel sites. The names on the map are links to pop up windows that describe the site.

The Abbey Hotel is #1 on the map. It is right above the word on the map "Moliine". Follow Route 74 south to a cluster of number at I-280.
They 29, 10, 27, 26 and 21 on the map. That is where the convention is.

This is their website. http://www.theabbeyhotel.com/

They even have a webcam at http://www.qconline.com/webcam/abbeycam.shtml

I was not finished as I was looking at the Mississippi river.

I created a thread for Chickee.

I have some good links here: http://www.online-sweepstakes.com/fo...44#post1837244. The fourth post of mine.
