We were in Spokane for a night in advance of a University track meet at the Community College nearby. Decided to stay at the “historic” Davenport hotel (we knew the teams would not stay there!)
The Davenport also has a newer “Tower” hotel across the street, but we avoided that as we’ve heard it is entirely safari themed, as is the restaurant, which seemed a bit much. (We also learned that the rooms on the south side of the Tower building face the railroad tracks, which can be noisy, so keep that in mind if you’re looking there. The older hotel is a bit further from the tracks, but might want to avoid the south side of that as well?.....)
We were advised that it is wise not to park on the street for security reasons, so the only choices were self park across the street (I believe that was $15/day) or valet, (for $5 more).
The Davenport had all the grandeur and architectural detail we had expected, so that was fun. It can be quite expensive, but with a good discount, it was reasonable for a downtown location, and the “Davenport King” room was comfortable.
Keep in mind, this is an OLD hotel in the heart of Downtown. It felt very busy with several weddings and conferences going on. And the room was not quiet at all, with traffic noise from the street below, and party sounds spilling into the halls. Our room faced west, so we weren’t directly facing the train tracks, but still heard those go by as well.
The room has been updated beautifully, with many old-style touches. Felt old and new at the same time, with more luxury than we usually go for. The shower was huge! (No tub, and also no refrigerator or extra amenities we may take for granted in newer establishments)
The famed “Davenport bed” was a bit lumpy for my tastes, but we’ve heard others rave about it, and people must enjoy it, since they even had a form right on the bedside table if you wanted to order one to send home!
