“Handled a busy weekend well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Was just in Spokane for Bloomsday, which meant every hotel in the city is sold out.

As has been mentioned the hotel is being expanded and renovated. It will be nice for everyone when that is complete. The room was clean and it's nice that they have a selection of pillow types in the room.

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. A nice touch that they had ice chests of free bottled water for all the runners after the big race (it was a hot day and we needed the H2O).

The breakfast area was swamped but I don't imagine they normally have every room booked on a Saturday night with every guest needing to be at the same place at the same time. We got our breakfast and ate in our room, not a big deal.. the area had two staff members working to make sure the food stayed stocked.

Once the renovations are complete it would be a nice option for the mid level traveler.

I only wish there was a sidewalk to the street, it isn't very pedestrian friendly from the top of the rock to the street...

Room Tip: Rooms facing north have balconies and would have a view of the city... we had a view of the title co...

This hotel is being renovated but it was nice, clean, and quiet. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. the breakfast room was a but crowded, but they made it work. The hot cookies at night were a nice touch. The shuttle took me to get a bite to eat and picked me up when I was done. I will stay here again.

Construction ruled this stay. They are building a restaurant and remodeling the hotel and it shows. Rooms are not as large as other hotels I have stayed in but it was clean. Good location price was a bit high for government rate. I would recommend it is in a great location.

Stayed here for two nights. Nice people and a good location. The room is a little dated but fine (they are adding on right now, don't know if they plan to remodel existing rooms). We did not have the breakfast but it smelled good. Excellent location both to downtown and to head north on Division. Seems a little on the expensive side and not as nice as many of the Holiday Inn Expresses we have stayed at.....however, really good and friendly service. We would choose this again.

In town for the writing conference and expecting an average experience...what a pleasant surprise to have an outstanding experience! The staff here completely understand the meaning of hospitality. The response to every inquiry or request was met with courteous and sincerely helpful responses. We utilized the shuttle service extensively although we also found the location really convenient to walk into the city and explore the area. By far the most personable and helpful front dek staff we've ever had and thats saying a lot given that we travel a lot! We took advantage of the breakfast which was also surprisingly well above average in terms of taste, choice, and convenience. Can't wait to see the end results of the major construction--amazed that all of this work was taking place and we were barely aware. Thanks for a great experience.

Stayed here while participating in the Golf and Travel Show, location is 2 minutes from the Convention Center, very convenient. Front Desk staff were always friendly, and went out of their way to make me feel at home. Complimentary breakfast was well prepared, stocked and full of choices hot and cold. Manager there was efficient and kind. Housekeeping staff was kind and efficient, rooms we're average, but with that I mean, clean, comfortable and modern, very nice, and exactly what I expected. Holiday Inn, and HI Express are usually my top pick when travelling, clean, well maintained, traditionally good staff, free wifi, flat screens, and as a HI Priority Member, I always receive a nice welcome amenity, bottled water. I'll definitely be back when I return to Spokane.

The hotel is being expanded. There is some congestion and difficult parking around the hotel because it is placed up on a rock, and no where to spread out to make room for the heavy equipment. The room was clean and the staff nice, and the food was the typical fair. However, they did have some extra 'happy hour' types of snacks in the evening. Location is right in the middle of everything, by the central park and downtown, which is great.
