The good -
Nice and friendly front desk employees made the check-in a breeze. Stayed a double room on the 10th floor with two very comfortable queen beds and a beautiful view. The room was spacious with a good sized closet, a nice desk, a refrigerator and small microwave. For amenities, nice soap, lotion and a shampoo/condition all in one. The room was very clean and set up well.

Great location. Plenty of shopping and restaurants within waling distance. Easy walk to cross the river to the downtown area.

The not so good -
One morning we tried the buffet breakfast. Scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, fruit, oatmeal and toast on unattended tables. It was basically same as the complimentary buffet breakfast some chains offer. For such a nice hotel I expected a little nicer buffet with more choices.

The indoor pool was also very disappointing. Then you walk in the chlorine is so strong that your eyes start burning. The pool room is dark and blah.

Those two items aside, the rest of the experience was great.I would stay here again.

Room Tip: request a tower room on the west side

I have stayed at several different hotels in the Spokane area but this was the first time I stayed at the Red Lion. I got a good deal if I stayed 3 days so went for it and glad I did. The view from my room of their outdoor pool was beautiful. The room was very quiet. I did not hear "noisey neighbors" the entire time I was there - maybe because I was there during the week days, but it was nice and quiet. Also, you can run the fan all night which provides a nice "white noise" to block out sounds while you sleep, many other hotels don't allow this anymore. We also order room service - it was a little spendy, but typical for the Spokane area and the food was really good. Beds were clean and comfy. Really nice stay. We could walk all over downtown Spokane without having to drive anywhere else!. Only complaint is the pool and hottub were way too cold.

Room Tip: Request a view of the outdoor swimming pool. That will put you on the side of Riverview Park and it...

The worst wait staff in all the Red Lion hotels. They don't greet your or even acknowledge you are there waiting. There was nobody else in the restaurant except us, but you would think you would get good service. No, because there to busy doing the job of restocking or something that was more important than getting a loyal customer another cup of coffee. Very disappointed with this facility.

We have visited this hotel 2 other times. Each time they have done a fine job. Check in was good, customer service overall is good. The hotel is large and can be challenging if you have a lot of stuff to take to your room. No problems with cleanliness in the rooms or public areas. There is no valet parking, it is self park and it seems people have problems getting in and out of the lot, not the hotels fault, it seems they cannot read. I do want to give a shout out to a bartender, Stuart, he does a great job. I would give the hotel a 4 star rating but they are not quite there.

We were treated very well by all the staff and we had a nice view overlooking River Front Park and the outdoor pool. We enjoyed walking on the many river side trails. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast with many choices. The lobby decor was a little outdated and worn, but the room had newer furniture and was clean and functional with wi-fi, microwave, and fridge.

The gym was open 24/7, but is a bit small with free weights and aerobic machines. There is not much room to stretch. The hot tub could be a little hotter and the jets could work a little better, but we enjoyed the use of the hot tub until 11 PM.

Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend the hotel. We would return to the same hotel if we visited Spokane again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the side of the River Front Park.

Beautiful rooms with great views, pillow top beds and as a bonus the Atrium restaurant where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast. The lobby is very inviting with a fireplace and comfortable furniture. A well trained staff is always available to answer questions and provide needed assistance.

Room Tip: The tower is our favorite but all the rooms are great.

This is the first time at this particular property although we stay at quite a few red Lions through the years. The room was a good deal for the size and quality and the hotel is right on the river with easy walk to downtown and the park. Very beautiful views. Staff is very helpful. Restaurant is a bit spendy but breakfast is great.

Room Tip: Ask for some of the upper tower rooms
