As others have commented, this hotel has been recently refreshed, and its site in downtown Spokane is striking, located on a rocky bluff near Riverfront Park, convenient to downtown attractions and Gonzaga University. The building shows thoughtful architecture with a pleasant "Old Spokane" feel. Our room had an excellent walk in shower (body jets!), best I've ever experienced in an HIE. Breakfast seemed subpar on Monday morning, much better variety and freshness on Tuesday. Perhaps a delivery was late? The hotel's satellite TV package is less than optimal, no A&E, HGTV, Food, or similar cable channels. All in all a pleasant stay, though.
