Spokane's Davenport Collection of hotels is joining a hotel brand and all hotels in the collection will change names slightly to reflect the new branding. The hotels included in the Davenport Collection are the Davenport Hotel , Davenport Hotel Tower , Hotel Lusso and the new Convention Center Hotel.
The Davenport Collection will be part of Marriott brand, but because of the property's historic and upscale status none will change much at all and no large Marriott signs,etc... will be placed on the hotels. In fact, the Davenport will actually be part of Marriott's Autograph Collection.
The Marriott Autograph Collection is a new sister branding off of the main Marriott brand for independent , upscale and / or prestigious hotels. The Autograph Collection is made up of over 60 different hotel properties with none in the Northwest as of now. The Davenport will officially join the Marriott Autograph Collection sometime before the end of 2014.
In addition to the branding with Marriott, The Davenport Collection has also named it's huge new hotel going up across from the Spokane Convention Center in Downtown Spokane. That hotel will be called Grand Hotel Spokane.
We're also finding what may or may not be the first restaurant going into the Grand Hotel Spokane. But we will wait on confirmation before posting on this site.
Once open The Grand Hotel Spokane will be the largest hotel in city. The hotel is planned to open in mid 2015 with 716 hotel rooms, ballrooms, meeting space as well as restaurant and some other commercial space. There is even a Grand Hotel Spokane web site up now with some floor plans. That web site can be found at-
