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
The decor in the hotel by itself is amazing. Very cool historic spot and the photos throughout the hotel are interesting. The room is very comfortable and large. Bath is deep with a nice slope for your back and is good for relaxing. Shower is large. Bed is very comfortable, thought it does take some effort to climb up on the thing. The pillows are the only thing that I think were a bit lacking. They give you plenty of pillows, but they go pretty flat. Food at the hotel is very good as well. Excellent hotel.
Recently stayed here on a 2 day business trip. The hotel is very historic and swanky. Rooms are spacious and the shower is large and roomy. The only issue I had in our room on the 3rd floor was it was to warm no air flow, windows would not open and the air as as low as it would go.
Service was nice and it close
Great staff. They remember me on each visit and are very helpful. Questions about the area? Just ask them and you will get good information on what is going on. They clued me in on activities I might like and gave directions and dates. They are very good about letting folks know about specials at the hotel also. As usual the food was perfect and the wait staff was very friendly.
