  • The latest rendering of the Spokane Convention Center Hotel, under construction in downtown Spokane.

The Davenport Hotel Collection’s website has a new look, and with that relaunch comes an updated view of Walt Worthy’s newest project, the Spokane Convention Center Hotel.

In case the name isn’t clear enough, this is the hotel that’s under construction in downtown Spokane between Main Avenue and Spokane Falls Boulevard, near the convention center and Riverfront Park, on the site of a former parking lot. After some doubt about whether it would even happen, the groundbreaking took place last fall and it’s scheduled to open in the summer of 2015.

Some of the updated figures:

• 715 guest rooms, including up to 40 suites, ranging from 452 to 3,000 square feet

• 60,000 square feet of meeting space, including an 18,000 square foot grand ballroom

• 900 covered parking spaces

Aside from the parking, that overall capacity is sized down a tiny bit from the initial Spokane Public Facilities District press release back in September.

Some of the amenities of each room:

• signature “Davenport beds”

• 40-inch HD televisions

• safe, ironing board, hair dryer, work desk

• wired and wireless Internet

Other amenities:

• 24-hour business center

• 24-hour fitness center

• shoeshine

• concierge

• free town car service within a two-mile radius of the hotel

Dogs are allowed for a $30 nightly fee, and the convention center will be connected by a skywalk.

Renderings are known to change a fair amount during the design and construction process, as you can see here from previous versions that show the hotel with entirely different materials and windows.
