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 historic Davenport Hotel is a beautiful, extravagant piece of history right in downtown Spokane. They upgraded my husband and I to a corner suite on the seventh floor complete with a bedroom, living room, a giant bathtub, and a huge walk-in shower. I felt like I was in a very fancy apartment, not a hotel room! If you have the opportunity to stay here for leisure, or a convention, be sure to look at the pictures on the walls on the first and second floors. Also, don’t miss the fourth floor mezzanine, or the indoor pool and hot tub down below the street level. From 1914 to the 1980s, every sitting president has stayed at the Davenport. This is definitely one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed at!
Awesome hotel in the center of Spokane. Old world charm with crown molding, historic building etc and modern comforts. Marriott beds!!!!!! Slept really well and we really enjoyed the hotel. Peanut brittle is a must !!!
The lobby is beautiful, and the customer service is excellent. The rooms are spacious and clean! One drawback is that there is no mini fridge in the standard room, and it costs an extra $15 to have one delivered; also it is a bit easy to hear people in the hallway from inside your room. Overall, the location and general atmosphere of the hotel are tough to beat in the Spokane area. Head into one of the Davenport (any off the hotels) bars at 4 pm for happy hour - half off all drinks!
The hotel is nice. I didn’t get to enjoy it as much as I had hoped for. We were in town for the Pacific North Volleyball qualifier and I didn’t have time to go to the pool. I worked out one day because the workout room was full the other 2 days. It’s very small for such a nice hotel. I think it’s time for all hotels to come into this century. Every room needs a refrigerator and if not I think you should extend the invite during volleyball times.. parents need to be able to keep waters and certain snacks cold. I did request a refrigerator for a $15 delivery fee (kind of nickeling and dime’in). After going to eat and coming back to room, we realized we didn’t have a way to warm up our food. Called down to see if they had microwaves available in lobby area or restaurant. Well I could request one to my room for “guess what” a $15 delivery fee, yay!! Would have been nice to have been told that when I got the refrigerator, so I could be charged a one time delivery fee for both. I declined the microwave. I ended up being charged $15, 3 times that they fixed on check out. Room 1121 has a window that doesn’t shut all the way. I realized that, after being woken up 2 nights in a row wondering why I could hear so much of outside so clearly.. the tub was wonderful!! The bed was comfortable. The valet and restaurant staff a perfect 10. I’m not saying this isn’t a great hotel, unfortunately a few things for me that just brought the rating down..
Love staying at the historic davenport hotel. The comfiest beds and pillows in a hotel. The rooms are always clean. The hotel has everything you need, restaurant, lounge, coffee bar and spa. Also it is pet friendly!!
The most amazing Sunday Brunch!
