Surprised in a good way.

The mall and parking were easy to navigate. Across from the mall is a beautiful waterfront park. Beautiful viewing areas to see three separate waterfalls.

We have been to Spokane several times, but this was the first time we actually went downtown. What a great area. Lots of older building fixed up, great shopping and restaurants, and lots of parking. We will definitely go back and spend more time in this area the next time we are down there.

Spokane is quite the contradiction many older brick building in the old town , several amazing stone and brick churches. The area near the water front is in a painful transition from the 70's to current architecture. there is of course the largest Red Wagon in the world and thats cool.!

I'd never been, but enjoyed leaving the hotel and walking around. Lots of great eateries and shopping. The Macy's has a discount level, which was great for bargains. Would love to go back.

Western Canada gets a lot of TV stations from Spokane, which had led me to believe that the city was likely a long stretch of big box stores and discount automotive supply places and carpet centres stretched along a broad expanse of interstate near the Idaho Border. It is that too, don't get me wrong, but Downtown Spokane is definitely... More

Nice collection of stores for shopping as well as a number of restaurants to choose from. Parking can be a challenge but can be managed.

My husband and I moved here 15 years ago for his work, and now we're staying in our retirement. We could live anywhere, but love the small town feeling of the 2nd largest city in WA state. Tons of neat little restaurants, great happy hours, and world class hotels (the owners of our jewel, the Davenport, are taking reservations for... More

Downtown Spokane is almost as it was built in the early 1900's. We are looky that the fortunes of Spokane were stalled in the 50's onward. Nobidy had the money to know down beautiful old bricj buildings and build concrete monstrosities. Great walking, but look up and across the street. A good collection of restaurants and bars, and the belle... More

Spokane is a beautiful city if you take the time to appreciate the architecture. There are a lot of old brick buildings, several gorgeous hotels, and some fabulous old churches in the downtown area. Riverfront Park is fun for all ages with its rolling lawns, ice skating in winter, carnival in summer, and of course the famous red wagon. Downtown... More
