jlocole, Riverpark square downtown is your best bet, lots of shops inside linked by walking bridges from one store to another but many are all on the same levels. Lots of restaurants around.to.
As far as the hotel is concerned what would be your price ranges and are you driving down. By the way lots and lots of Canadians come down from Calgary for the shopping.
Let me know about the hotel and I'll be happy to give you some ideas and web sites.
I like a nice hotel; more 4 star than 2 star. Is there a nice one near Riverpark?
With a pool or hot tub, and maybe a fitness centre. I always have good intentions on going to the gym......
The trip is a shopping spree but not sure what to do for the 2 evenings after we are finished at the mall.
jlocloe, there are several nice hotels within easy walking distance to the square here are some to choose from first the Davenport hotel which is the most famous that's where I would start they also have a e town car that will take you around down town with in a certain distance anyhow check it out.
which has the fitness center and pools They have been remodeling so check out the rooms first to see if the hotel is what you want or check them out when you get there.
There is also the travelodge which has a fitness
For things to do check out this web site for what's going on in Spokane when you are there....
Any questions please ask.
You'll have fun lots to see and do here.
The Davenport likely meets your needs. I prefer the classic Davenport rooms and hotel, great lobby and bar. The Tower is a new, more contemporary design. Lusso to me has a San Francisco boutique feel, but some rooms are just a little quirky. Lots of bar action within easy walking distance, as well as dining.
Shopping in Spokane is much better than Great Falls if you are looking for clothes and shoes. Great Falls has a very tiny mall, but is good if you want to check out Target, Walmart, & KMart and grocery stores In Spokane I like Riverpark Square for Nordstroms & Macy's and a few stores inbetween. It is not a big downtown mall like in Calgary and you will not find the high end stores that you see at Chinook. I also like to shop at Spokane Valley Mall and Northtown. ULTA, DSW Shoes, Fred Meyers, Barnes & Noble, TJ Maxx are also interesting for us Canadians to check out. Hancock Fabrics is fantastic. Albertans are tax exempt at most stores, Abercrombie and Hollister refuse to do it, you just need to tell them your tax exempt before they start ringing in. They will ask for your drivers license and your signature. Have fun.
Love DSW shoes! The Ambercrombie store at RPS is now closed and Nordstrom Rack is now in the Valley near the Valley Mall.
If you go give the Mustard Seed restaurant a try it's one of my favorites.
A little further out is the Spokane Valley mall
See's Candy is another stop for Canadian's. Trust its still there.
I just asked my coworker, its still there!
