I am constantly amazed at how much the Quad Cities has changed since I arrived here almost 20 years ago.

I can remember when the area around I-74 and 53rd was almost nothing but fields. Since that time the entire area has transformed.

The newest building going up that caught my eye is just north of Unity Point Trinity campus. It's a new hotel to be called My Place Hotel. According to a report in the Quad City Times, it is the third of a planned 40 hotels to put up by Des Moines developers.

Read the article to find out what's different about this hotel and what some of its amenities will be.

Glad to see the Quad Cities continue to grow.
