My girlfriend and I stayed here for a three day educational seminar. We were picked up at Spokane Airport by the resort's van service. The driver (Bob) was extremely friendly and courteous and gave us some background on the City of Coeur d'Alene.
When we got to the hotel, the front desk person (Amy) greeted us warmly and gave us a room on the 17th floor. What we didn't know at the time is that she had upgraded us from the most basic room without a view, the one we had reserved through the organization sponsoring our seminar, to a premier lakeview room with a fireplace. When we walked into the room, it was so nice that we were sure the front desk had made an error. We called the front desk to make sure we hadn't been placed in the wrong room. Amy informed us that it was hotel policy to upgrade guests if the more expensive rooms were available and unreserved at the time. That means we got the best room type at the resort for the price of a basic room!! That's what a call a generous policy!
The room was beautiful with a sunken living room with a sofa and upholstered chair, coffee table, work desk and chair, gas fireplace, and a door that opened to a small, private balcony with two Adirondack chairs and a small table overlooking the lake and marina. The highlight of the room was a huge floor to ceiling window with a spectacular view of Lake Coeur d'Alene, the surrounding mountains, and the resort marina.
Other features included well-stocked mini-bar, two cotton robes, two granite sinks, two very comfortable double beds, a flat screen tv that could be adjusted to be viewed from the beds or from the sunken living room area, and a large bathroom with a European style shower area and separate bathtub. The shower had an oversized shower head with excellent water pressure.
We had two meals at the resort's Dockside restaurant, which is the more casual, family-style restaurant on the ground floor. Both meals were very satisfying. Be sure to try the Copper River Salmon, if it is available, and save room for the Mac Daddy Cocunut Cake. The Dockside staff were super friendly, just like everyone else at the resort. There is a fancier restaurant--Beverly's-- on the 7th floor, but we didn't try that one. We also didn't have the chance to try any of the spa amenities, unfortunately. I'm sure they're wonderful, too.
All in all, this was probably the best hotel experience I've had anywhere. I would recommend it to anyone and would definitely return here again.
