It’s one of the “Top 10 Fittest US Cities” and “Best Mid-Size Cities to Visit”. It also has the seventh most efficient airport and is the leading place to retire in the West. Plus, it’s one of the top riverfront cities and greatest small cities for foodies.
What’s this “it” we’re referring to? Washington’s Spokane, that’s what!
No wonder visitors spent a whopping $1.3 billion when they visited in 2017! That number represents an impressive six percent increase from the year before. It also shows a considerable growth in hotel occupancy.
The best and most unique hotels in Spokane WA are also to thank for this huge improvement.
The question is, which of these Spokane places to stay should make it to your list of prospective accommodations?
We’ve rounded up six in this post, so make sure you keep reading!
1. The Davenport Lusso, Autograph Collection
How does a 10-minute walk to the Riverfront Skyride – where some of the most unique Spokane experiences await – sound like? Or a calm and quiet downtown location to give you a great night’s sleep?
That’s exactly what The Davenport Lusso, Autograph Collection has to offer, among many others. It’s also only 600 meters from the Spokane River, which is a great bonus for nature-loving travelers out there. If you’re in for some theatrical experience, the Martin Woldson Theater is also only a few minutes away.
Another characteristic that sets apart this boutique hotel is the architecture itself. It’s in an old (but well-renovated) building, giving it a romantic and charming appeal. Comfy beds in air-conditioned rooms await visitors.
Sweeten the deal when you get a select suite, and you can even enjoy drinks from the minibar beside a fireplace!
2. The Historic Davenport, Autograph Collection
The name itself should already tell you it’s one of the historic hotels in Spokane. Built in 1914, this four-star hotel housed dignitaries throughout its longer-than-a-century existence. It also boasts of a museum nestled in Victorian-era interiors – complete with marble floors.
The historic decors extend to its 284 guest rooms, all also having undergone a full restoration. The rooms’ mahogany furnishings, luxurious window treatments, and beds fit for kings and queens await tired travelers.
The downtown location of the Historic Davenport makes it one of the best places to stay in Spokane. Plus, it boasts of its own spa, salon, and fitness center, giving you more reasons to indulge.
If you fancy eating outside, worry not as the hotel is also only a few minutes drive to some of Spokane’s best restaurants. It’s about 10 minutes from Chaps Coffee Co. and the Downtown River Grill.
3. The Davenport Grand, Autograph Collection
Another entry from the Autograph Collection of Marriott, expect The Davenport Grand to provide you with some serious lodging experience. It’s more modern than its sister properties, but it’s still one of the best-rated (especially for service) luxury hotels in Spokane.
For starters, it offers breathtaking views of the Spokane River. It’s also only four blocks from some of the city’s main attractions, including the River Park Square and the INB Performing Arts Center.
The hotel also makes dining easy yet gastronomic. It boasts not one, but two in-building restaurants as well as two bars. Catch whatever meal you fancy at The Grand Restaurant & Lounge, or have some tasty tapas at Table 13.
Book one of the 716 rooms here, and you can expect top-notch comforts. Spend a great night’s sleep tucked under the Frette Italian sheets with your head propped on pillowtop beds. There’s also WiFi, cabled LCD TV, and a coffee maker in each room.
4. Hotel Ruby
Take a nice trip down memory lane when you step into the Hotel Ruby.
Built in the 1960s as a motor inn, this boutique hotel is as cool and funky as you can imagine. It’s smaller compared to many of what’s in this list, but all its 37 artsy rooms designed for comfort feature plush, comfy – and get this – custom-made beds!
The downtown location also makes it quick and easy to visit some of the city’s top destinations. It’s only a few minutes from the natural wonders of Riverfront Park and Spokane Falls as well as the history-rich Bing Crosby Theater. If you’re up for some shopping, there’s also the nearby River Park Square Mall.
Another thing that makes the Hotel Ruby unique: its Bicycle Checkout Program! You can take one of the complementary Ruby Bikes any time of the day for some healthy touring of the city.
5. The Montvale Hotel
History buffs will love The Montvale Hotel – the oldest in this list. Built in 1899, this proud-to-be-a-member of the Historic Hotels of America is the premier historic hotel in Spokane.
Found in the heart of the city’s Entertainment District, Montvale is only a few steps away from the Spokane Falls, the Bing Crosby Theater, and the River Park Square Mall. What’s more, it houses four of the best local dining establishments, including the Gilded Unicorn and the Brooklyn Deli.
You have nine different room types to choose from, ranging from the Standard Queen to the Presidential Suite. Each of the 36 rooms boasts of plush beds, large pillows, and other beautiful furnishings. The great location also affords nice views of the city – right from the comfort of your room.

Breathtaking overlooking views of the Spokane River – check. A few minutes from the Riverfront Park – check. A 12-minute drive from the Spokane International Airport – check.
All these and more you can enjoy when you stay at the DoubleTree Hotel. There’s also the nearby Centennial Trail, the Gonzaga University, and the INB Performing Arts Center.
