My husband and I live over two hours from Spokane but we live to visit and explore all the city has to offer. After some research and trials, we have settled on this hotel as our number one place to stay. It is close to many places of interest and still has the comforting atmosphere of a quality smaller home, not a big modern office building. We especially enjoy our breakfast sitting in the beautiful entrance with its high ceilings and city views. The beds are comfortable, the parking safe and the rooms clean. What more could you ask for?

I got a room here as a gift. I loved it. We had just a nice staycation with it. Made a great spread of food and hung in the room and watched downtown. Saundra helped us at the front desk and she was super nice. They had milk and cookies out to snack on and they have a free breakfast in the morning too. The whole place looked beautiful for Xmas. We will be back!
