The Historic Davenport Hotel
Washington State’s grandest hotel, The Historic Davenport Hotel, opened in Spokane in 1914 under the kindly patronage and guidance of Louis Davenport. An architectural gem, the Historic Davenport Hotel has a Spanish Renaissance Lobby and the Hall of Doges, Spokane’s oldest ballroom. In 2000, the hand-painted frescos, ornate woodwork, marble, and genuine gold leaf around the lobby hearth were all restored. Famous visitors to the hotel include American president John F. Kennedy and Amelia Earhart. Located close to Spokane’s Riverfront Park, it’s an excellent place to stay.
