The Axis Hotel Moline, Tapestry Collection by Hilton Open: The Axis Hotel and Fifth Avenue Syndicate Bistro & Bar in Downtown Moline - Heart Of America Group

The Axis Hotel Moline, Tapestry Collection by Hilton has opened as Heart of America Group’s newest upscale hotel with signature onsite restaurant the Fifth Avenue Syndicate Bistro & Bar in the historic Fifth Avenue building in downtown Moline, Illinois. The Axis Hotel is part of Tapestry Collection by Hilton and is only the second Tapestry Collection hotel in Illinois. The boutique hotel and historic art deco landmark was named for the location’s prominence on Fifth Avenue and 17th Street. When the Fifth Avenue building was originally constructed in 1929, the location was known as the main axis of Moline, connecting business, leisure and transportation.

The 104-room hotel is a blend of historic grandeur with modern comfort. Each unique guest room provides an abundance of natural light and scenic views of the Mississippi River. Paying homage to a more elegant era, the hotel offers amenities from the William Roam Steam Collection. There are several room types, ranging from a one-bedroom room to a corner king suite with a private bedroom and premium bath.

Located within The Axis Hotel, the Fifth Avenue Syndicate Bistro & Bar is a French-inspired bistro that honors the cocktail culture of the 1920s. The restaurant features classic, nostalgic cocktails and inventive chef cuisine. The bistro is named after a group of businessmen known as “The Syndicate,” who funded and planned the original Fifth Avenue building project. The Fifth Avenue Syndicate is the focal point of the hotel lobby and offers a Roaring Twenties experience for guests of The Axis Hotel and local patrons. The bistro features American cuisine with an inventive twist for lunch, happy hour, dinner and brunch on the weekends. The history, mood, design and menu will create an iconic experience for guests and locals alike.

The hotel also features a historic 1920s-era ballroom with onsite food and beverage service, dedicated staff and state-of-the-art AV equipment — the perfect backdrop for elegant weddings, rehearsal dinners, holiday parties and corporate events. There is complimentary parking onsite with a covered walkway for guests.

Listed in the National Register of Historic places, the ornate details from the original construction of the Fifth Avenue building have been preserved. The stunning terrazzo floors, marble and granite walls, elevator lobbies with coffered ceilings, lobby skylight and floor-to-ceiling windows showcase river views and provide a unique design to fit the historical layout of the eight-story tower. The Axis Hotel and Fifth Avenue Syndicate is a boutique destination with timeless character and charm.
