Several new hotel and hotel remodeling projects are proposed all around the Inland Northwest, but a section of land off Geiger Blvd. south of Spokane International Airport is now home to two big hotel developments. One being the future Sleep Inn / Mainstay Suites in development on the same site as the current Airway Express Inn ( that hotel would be demolished ).
But just southeast of the their in a newer industrial park type area another new hotel will soon rise at 4523 S. Dowdy Rd. just off of Geiger Blvd. . The new hotel will a franchise branded as a La Quinta Inn, a Irving,TX based hotel chain which already a few other locations around the region. The chain which was founded in the late 1960's has well over 800 locations in the United States and a couple of other countries.
There is no estimated opening date for this new La Quinta Inn on the West Plains but construction will likely start next month. The hotel will be a 4 story property with 55,000 square feet and 87 rooms , a few being suites. A yet to be named bar & restaurant will be on the same site as will meeting spaces , a continental breakfast area , indoor pool & spa , airport shuttle and a guest laundry.
This new hotel project is in a good spot, visible from I-90 and a short drive to the Airport. It's also in a good spot to attract business travelers with several employers in close proximity, including a couple rumored new manufacturing facility's nearby like the possible Spike Aerospace facility which Spokane is confirmed to be in the running for.
We'll keep an eye on when this new hotel might open. For more information the La Quinta Inn chain visit their website at-
