“Best hotel ever stayed in!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Travelled to Spokane for a wedding in November and stayed at the historic Davenport Hotel.
Five star hotel and at a reasonable rate!
The lobby is gorgeous, as is the entire complex.
Dining rooms and food excellent.
The staff incredibly friendly and efficient.
The rooms with deluxe beds made you feel like a royal!
I hope to have an occasion to return.
I don't believe I will ever stay in a finer hotel!

Beautiful hotel in the heart of downtown Spokane. We booked our stay for our anniversary and bought the Romance Package. This allowed us to have a junior suite, free parking, champagne, flowers, and a $100 dining credit. A bargain and an extraordinary luxury experience. The food at the Palm Court is always excellent and the service throughout the hotel is exceptional. Whenever we find ourselves in Spokane, we always stay at The Davenport!

We had stayed here once before and were happy to come back to Spokane to stay again! it is a wonderful, comfortable hotel with a beautiful lobby! Rooms are large and the beds fluffy! I love the peanut brittle that they put on your bed as a treat at night, such a nice touch!! it was a lovely stay! I would definitely treat myself to another stay when in Spokane in the future!

Room Tip: The seventh floor was nice. We stayed in the old hotel which was great! The towers are lovely as w...

This is the hotel I measure all others against.

My husband and I first stayed at The Davenport Historic Hotel for our Honeymoon. We returned for our first anniversary. I'm a foodie and I love good wine so I had a list of places we were going to visit while we were in Spokane. Caterina, Boots Bakery, Nectar, Sante, Luna, Arbor Crest and Scratch.

We checked in on Friday afternoon ... and didn't leave until Sunday morning because we were obligated to make our way to Arbor Crest (which was good call because their Dionysus is lovely). When we finally left on Monday, we knew returning to everyday life would be difficult.

We ate room service for dinner, breakfast, lunch, dinner, breakfast, dinner and breakfast. And it was possibly the best room service, both in terms of fare and staff) I've ever had. Strike that. It was definitely the best room service I've ever had. We managed to make it down to the Palm Court so I could have a Crab Louie Salad in front of the massive marble fireplace because I love doing that but other than that, we ate in our room.

On Sunday, when we left the hotel for Arbor Crest, we had the Palm Court pack us a fruit and cheese plate to take with us - and that was an excellent call. So was the Town Car.

Everything about this restored property is lovely. The marble, the oak, the ballrooms, the sitting areas, the rooms, the room furniture, the bathtubs - oh, and the Celadon bath products. It's a scent that whispers elegance to me. The beds are ridiculous. We are purchasing one.

For the luxury you receive, this hotel is incredibly and fairly priced. Do yourself the favor. Stay here.

Room Tip: Stay in the Historic Hotel and get yourself a deluxe room because the bathtubs are to die for.

I stayed in the Davenport Tower hotel recently. My room was clean, and the staff was exceedingly friendly. But the Tower is soulless. I wish I had stayed at the older hotel building. Even approaching the Tower, you can tell it won't have any charm or character. It's a tall box, off white in color. Inside, the lobby tries to make up for its charmlessness by hanging fake elephant heads around. That doesn't work. Nor does the safari aesthetic -- i.e. leopard print fabric -- throughout the hotel. The construction was cheap. The bathroom is not tiled, except for the shower. A lot of TripAdvisor reviewers complained about the soap dispensers. I will too: I dont care about getting soap through a dispenser, but I wish mine wasn't made from cheap plastic and didn't keep shaking every time I used it. I didn't see the rooms in the older hotel building across the street, but the lobby had all of the character and history that the Tower's lacked. If there is a next time, I will stay there.

Great service, unique ornate historic design. Felt like I was in Versailles in the 1800s in the lobby minus the Starbucks. Nice place to stay.

Rooms are large and clean and beds are very comfortable. Area is nice with great shopping. Stayed here for business and would choose again

This is a lovely property and my husband and I enjoyed our one-night stay here very much. It has been meticulously restored and renovated. We booked into a deluxe queen room which had two queen beds. The room was a very good size with nice windows and a deluxe all marble bathroom. The bathroom was two separate rooms, one with sinks and closet area, the other with a large soaker tub and huge walk-in shower and toilet area. Towels were average quality, surprising for such an upscale hotel.

The beds were, as everyone mentions, very comfortable and the linens were good quality and the pillows were very nice as well.

Now I have a major quibble with this hotel, which is why I'm only rating it at 4 stars: They need to rethink their policy of no coffee makers in the rooms. And no, I do not believe it is because they are trying to be "green". If that was the case they would have blue recycling bins in the rooms, which they do not (and they should!) This is, plain and simple, a cost-cutting measure and one I do not appreciate. I like to get up and make myself a cup of coffee in the room and I believe a lot of other guests do as well. Many upscale hotels we have stayed in lately have put in more high-end coffee makers such as Keurig or Tassimo. We are currently staying in a Fairmont hotel which has the Keurig coffee maker. I do not want to dress and go down to the lobby for a cup of coffee, nor do I wish to order one from room service. This is a basic service which hotels from Days Inn to Waldorf Astoria have provided for their guests forever. So please don't try and pass it off as being more environmentally friendly, it is just CHEAP!

And that goes for the tacky dispensers with shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. CHEAP!

The staff here are very nice and helpful and we can't say enough about them.

The parking garage for self-parking is across the street from the hotel and we thought it was a bargain at $15.00/day.

We had dinner across the street in the Davenport Tower Safari lounge and food was reasonably priced and decent quality.

Overall, a very nice hotel to stay in overnight on our way to Seattle.
