I was in Spokane to be with my wife, who was in the Sacred Heart Hospital in the cardiac unit. Naturally, I was incredibly concerned and overly distracted. The staff at the front desk and breakfast bar staff were the best I've ever encountered at a hotel. They went above and beyond to make my stay as comfortable as possible considering the reason I was in Spokane. You can have the best looking hotel in the world but without a great staff it's nothing. Best Western, City Center Spokane is the BEST.
The only positive employee we met was the lady who prepared the breakfast. She was friendly and very welcoming to all, especially to visitors who spoke little English. She was the only saving grace to an otherwise horrible stay
While there is no pool at this hotel, the beautiful Riverfront Park and 40-mile paved Centennial Trail are within walking distance to the hotel.
Families will love to start each morning with the free hot breakfast buffet that includes items like eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles with fruit toppings and a yogurt bar with local granola. Breakfast is available from 6 to 9:30 a.m. on weekdays and until 10 a.m. on weekends.
Save room for the cinnamon roll from the local bakery -- the smell alone is hard to resist. Complimentary coffee is available in the lobby 24/7 and complimentary, fresh baked cookies are available in the evenings.
