The Historic Davenport Hotel, Autograph Collection

Updated opulence in Spokane
The Historic Davenport Hotel, an Autograph Collection property, has a long, rich history. Originally opened in 1914 by Louis Davenport and designed in the mold of Europe’s grand hotels, The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel enjoyed almost immediate success, quickly becoming a favored destination for celebrities, political movers and shakers, and discerning travelers seeking the latest in luxury hospitality.

After an extensive renovation and restoration that followed a 17-year period in which it was closed, the hotel reopened in 2002 and in 2007 was expanded to include the contemporary Davenport Tower across the street, providing a modern counterpoint to the opulence of the original Davenport Hotel where many of the original fixtures and furnishings remain intact today.
