A regional treasure, the Davenport Hotel opened in downtown Spokane in 1914 and is now a grand city landmark. Guest rooms have historical flourishes like toile curtains, stately armoires, and elaborately carved headboards. The hotel’s contemporary younger sister, the 21-floor Davenport Tower, opened across the street in 2007 with a safari theme that celebrates world travel—the foyer houses gold leaf rhinoceros and hippopotamus statues. They share an elegant all-day grill, peacock-themed lounge, and results-oriented spa.
In the Area
Both the Davenport Hotel and the Davenport Tower are in downtown Spokane’s theater district, close to the Bing Crosby Theater and the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, which hosts touring Broadway musicals, ballet performances, and symphony concerts. Also nearby is Steam Plant Square, a renovated factory that’s now home to hot tech companies, indie boutiques, and destination restaurants like the Steam Plant Grill, a brewery and restaurant.
How to Get There
My husband and I stayed at the Davenport Historic Hotel for the third time. Something different stands out each visit. This time, the Peacock Lounge’s drinks—magnificent! My husband is particular about martinis and rated his five-stars. I enjoyed Spring Thyme as well.
Staff was courteous, professional and efficient. Our room—clean, beautifully decorated per-period, but with modern accoutrements.
The Davenport is our hotel of choice in Spokane!
We live in town but I wanted a getaway for my wife and I. Made a reservation at the historic Davenport. The next day I called and told the reservation agent that I’d like a room on a high floor to get a nice view for my wife and I on our anniversary. The agent at the hotel said she would upgrade our room for me and boy did she. We had one of the presidential suites on the top floor with a beautiful view of the park and downtown. Everything about this hotel is first rate and the staff is freakin outstanding, fast and friendly from reservations to valet to room service, with one minor exception - the cleaning staff were fairly loud in the hall as we had an end room and we could hear them talking to each other in the middle of the hall by the elevators. It was in the afternoon so really couldn’t complain just something to think about. If you are having a special event I absolutely can give this hotel the highest marks.
Nearing the end of a six week cross-country trip and stayed the night in Spokane.
This is a fabulous piece of property that is beautifully decorated as well as decadently comfortable. Easy to get to and and seems to have several good restaurant choices in the area.
