LOVED IT!!!! The bed is HUGE. I stood in a single and I was so comfortable. There is also direct tv!!! This place is so relaxing and clean. I had a great experience. Everyone is really friendly and downtown Spokane is a short walk away.

My company puts us up here for business. Hotel staff is nice, clean hotel, rooms are nice, pool looks excellent, work out room is average. The bar food is average quality, overpriced, staff seems disorganized and is extremely slow. It was my second time in this bar with the same result. Bar wasn't busy at all, just poor service.

The initial conversation I had with the attendant was confusing. The first room they gave us was cramped and dark with what looked like a double bed. I mentioned this to the manager and he found us a better room that was capable of holding a family of three (My daughter is 6). This room was excellent . Great view... More

I was surprised to see some of the lower ratings here. Perhaps the expectations are a bit unreasonable for what you pay for the rooms. We had two rooms for three nights for just under $700 including taxes (we were part of the NCUR conference). That's $103 per room per night before taxes. The rooms were large, with king beds,...
