Looking for rides and slides in Idaho? There’s no better place for thrills and spills than the largest amusement park in the Pacific Northwest: Silverwood Theme Park. No matter if you’re a daredevil who can stomach the Panic Plunge or an easy-does-it rider who is content on the Carousel, Silverwood has a ride for everyone to enjoy. Give your body a break from all of the action with a relaxing stay at these hotels nearby, bookable with Culture Trip.
Laid-back evenings with a cold beer and live music make Mirabeau Park Hotel & Convention Center a prime place to relax after a day of roller coaster riding. Fridays and Saturdays, the band rocks into the night. Staying mid-week? Queue up your own soundtrack, mix a drink in your minibar, and kick back in the jetted tub of your executive jacuzzi suite. Really sink into relaxation, and ask room service to send up a warm Washington apple galette à la mode.
30 minutes from Silverwood Theme Park, Hampton Inn & Suites wants to help you keep the kids comfortable, corralled and content. The indoor pool should save you a few hours of sanity, but when your kids’ pruney feet start getting itchy, a walk along the riverside North Idaho Centennial Trail should do the trick. Got a tired group who is fighting sleep? Take it to Regal Cinemas next door, and, at least, you can catch some sleep in the dark.
The McFarland Inn is an adults-only affair, which means all the wine you can drink without any of the whine from home. Imagine eating your gourmet breakfast one slow, savory bite at a time. Think about how remarkable it would be to choose a flick from the movie library that doesn’t have a cartoon dog or CGI superhero. Picture yourself indulging in complimentary vino and small bites every evening with only your bath time and bedtime to worry about.
Just because your spouse is competing in the half ironman race, doesn’t mean you can’t relax your muscles. The Roosevelt Inn will treat your champion to an early breakfast, free fresh fruit all day, outdoor ice baths and 24-hour access to the hot tub. Spectators such as yourself will enjoy some competition of your own, such as board games, lawn games or seeing who can sit in the sauna long enough without longing for another cold beer.
One Lakeside is one lakeside secret you’ll want to keep from your friends. Quietly seated across from City Park & Beach, you’ll love the fourth-floor outdoor terrace, where you can grill out while watching visiting pups play in the dog run. Need an elevated experience? The rooftop has a hot tub with stunning Coeur d’Alene views. But let’s be honest: the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious balconies will keep you plenty entertained inside.
Why blow your budget on a hotel when there’s so much lakeside luxury to be had? Resort City Inn welcomes wallets of modest girths and delivers exactly what you need: a good night’s sleep. Quiet, clean and comfortable rooms come with coffeemakers, cable TV and air conditioning that you can drop as low as you please. Take all the money you save on lodging, and book an evening cruise on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
If you thought Amen Corner was hard, imagine having to par a 14th hole that’s on a floating green in the middle of a lake. The Coeur d’Alene Resort will challenge your golf game and, then, apologize with the Gentlemen’s Escape custom massage at the spa. Did you sink your ball in the drink? Maybe you’ll see it bouncing in the water while eating cedar plank salmon at the Cedars Floating Restaurant.
The tranquility of the Spokane River – as viewed from your deluxe getaway at Oxford Suites – is your cure of a case of the funny tummy induced by Spincycle and Tremors at Silverwood. Let the spa, sauna, steam room and indoor pool at Oxford Suites restore you to a sense of calm. That is, until you return to Silverwood the next day for an adrenaline-inducing ride on the Aftershock.
This luxe lodging in the heart of the city treats you to Spokane River and Centennial Trail views from the comfort and convenience of a heated outdoor pool. Those who want to live a little larger should throw on a robe and head up to the West Tower Grand Suite, where the Spokane skyline will give you a show from your two private balconies.
