The Montvale is a lovely boutique hotel conveniently located in downtown Spokane. Parking is limited, but check with the hotel staff for parking vouchers. The staff was friendly and helpful. There are three restaurants, two on either side and one below this hotel.This hotel is nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and surprisingly, affordable. I will be back!

This is a beautiful historic old hotel with modern accoutrements. It is kept up very well and surprisingly affordable. Our room was huge and gorgeous. Parking is somewhat limited and you have to walk down the street to the Hotel Ruby for free breakfast, but that's not really an inconvenience. You're right in the middle of everything downtown: food, bars,... More

Love staying at the Montvale. It is not your typical hotel. If you are looking for something a little different, with character, this is your hotel. The area is little "funky" and up and coming. Great value. Hotel is clean. Free coffee and gourmet teas available on second floor all day/night. Bars, bakeries, resale shops in the area. Loved staying... More

Artfully renovated historic hotel made for a classy yet inexpensive experience. Tall ceilings, antique furniture but contemporary beds and TVs. Love the second floor shared lobby, with coffee service 24/7. Adjacent new deli and bar convenient.

An exceptional Historic property. I have a huge two-room suite with a large bathroom and a murphy bed. The rate was very reasonable, the staff is very nice and helpful and there's a huge sitting area with a sky-light and comfortable furnishings. It's quiet, well maintained and has all the architectural details of grand historic building.

Didn't know what to expect booking a historical down town hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff friendly, the interior modernized but still historic, rooms very nice, multiple options for designing, and best of all quiet. Would recommend for business , couples, and perhaps families with older teens. Several strong options for meals onsite. Within walking distance to Riverfront Park,... More

High ceilings, large rooms and bathrooms, excellent furnishings - the only thing missing is an in room coffee maker. The rooms all circle a common sitting area that goes up to the roof and a large sky light. This was my second stay in Spokane this trip and will be a place I go back to definitely. It's very well...

The Montvale is a quaint, updated older hotel in downtown Spokane. The rate was very reasonable. There was construction in the area so it was interesting getting around. No valet parking or help with luggage if that is something you require. The room was comfortable and very quiet. The ceilings were high and the doors very tall. Rooms open onto... More

We stayed one night at the Montvale and found it very nice. New owners are renovating, so the lobby is stark at this time. Desk staff are very nice. Second floor atrium is very nice. Our room was very comfortable. Price is good. Location was good for walking to shops/mall/park.
