01Visit Spokane's most elegant establishment

The Historic Davenport Hotel in Downtown Spokane is more than just a luxury inn. It's also an icon of the city and at the heart of the neighborhood's revitalization efforts. The Davenport was the most elegant establishment in Spokane when it opened in 1914. Famous for an opulent design and upscale furnishings, the resort frequently played host to celebrities like Amelia Earhart, John F. Kennedy, and Spokane native Bing Crosby. The iconic building continues to draw visitors with its stunning architecture and interior design. The Hall of Doges is its masterpiece—the lavish ballroom's hand-painted frescoes, ornate woodwork, and marble accents are as beautiful as they were over 100 years ago.
