Our Spokane-born friend recommended this place and were we happy that we followed her advice!
The building itself is spectacular, and has been restored room-by-room over a period of many years. The room was very roomy and comfortable and the breakfasts were terrific... and not too over-the-top calorie wise. The location is also very good: a not-too-busy neighborhood just a few minutes from downtown Spokane.
But the innkeeper herself really distinguished this hostelry from the many other B & B's we've stayed at. She's charming, engaged with her guests, and eager to share the interesting history of the building-- complete with photos of the original owners. Her staff, too, is very accommodating and easy-going.
Treat yourself to a stay here if you're visiting Spokane, you'll be pleased that you did.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1889, this 23-room mansion is an integral part of Spokane's Historic Browne's Addition. After undergoing 25 years of restoration, it is now open to the public as an inn, and a facility for weddings, receptions, private parties, business meetings, and family gatherings. With the help of numerous photos from members of the Roberts' family, the mansion has been able to reflect the luxury and splendor of this Victorian period. ... more less
