Downtown Spokane is also home to the luxurious Davenport Hotel chain, and it’s worth walking a few blocks to get a look inside for the individual flare of each one.
The original hotel, the historic Davenport on Post Street, opened in 1914 as a modern marvel as the first hotel with air conditioning, according to HistoryLink.org. After closing in 1985, the hotel was renovated and reopened in 2002 with its woodwork, marble and frescoes restored. The hotel is also known for its weekend brunches and the Peacock Lounge.
Just down the block, the Davenport Tower is a more modern take on luxury. Its ground floor is safari themed, and the lobby bar and grill is a classy place to grab a drink in the evening.
A little farther toward River Park Square, the Davenport Lusso offers a quieter, boutique hotel experience. Additionally, the hotel restaurant, Post Street Ale House, is great spot for a beer and a burger.
Finally, across from Riverfront Park, the Davenport Grand is perhaps the simplest of the four hotels in terms of décor and theme. But the Grand is attached the Spokane Convention Center and First Interstate Center via skybridge, and it has an outdoor terrace bar that is open from late spring through early fall.
