Was not sure what to expect since there seemed to be no one around on the streets..spent a Sunday afternoon walking around in and out of stores, a mall, and a great park behind the mall. Some restaurants were closed while others were open...all very accessible and parking was easy.

Spokane's downtown is tied together by a skywalk system allowing you to park indoors at the parkade and see most of downtown without going outside. That's nice in the rain, but our best feature is outside. Riverfront Park is in the heart of downtown and surrounds the River. Walk through the park, dine at Anthony's with the view of the... More

We walked around downtown Spokane - quiet Saturday. Auntie's books is the best. Coffee at Atticus and a walk in the park. Downtown Spokane is a welcoming place

Spokane downtown is so much like European cities...hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, financial district, all within walking distance of each other and centered around the beautiful Spokane River and Spokane Falls. Downtown is becoming a conference center favorite because of the availability of services. Also home of HOOPFEST...over 25 yrs of the largest 3-on-3 basketball competition; BLOOMSDAY RACE, one of the... More

We walked to get excersise and they kept the area around the hotel clean. The night we were there the city came and hauled away tonnes of snow with half a dozen dump trucks so the roads were nice enough to cross. Huge improvement! Great place to do business.

We love this city, especially the historic downtown core with it's beautiful old buildings, many of which have been artfully renovated as venues for entertainment, dining and shopping. We have traveled there several times for cultural events at the INB Performing Arts Centre, but there are so many great entertainment opportunities it is hard to choose. With it's hot summers...

Many of the nice stores have left downtown including Macy's. There are still nice places to eat. Nice happy hours.

Downtown Spokane has a lot of great things it offers. Pig out in the Park, Chinese Lantern Festival, even a visit from presidential nominees every once in awhile!
