Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lusso Spokane
Boutique hotel with loads of character
My daughter and I loved this little hotel with its interesting hallways, 12' ceilings, gorgeous, tasteful decor and friendly staff. Our room was small but it was so elegant we didn't mind. The location is great.
We visited the Davenport across the street and decided that "it's a nice place to visit but we wouldn't want to stay there." Too ornate and traditional for our tastes, although a treat for historic architecture buffs, I suppose.
We'll be staying at the Davenport next time.
Our experience was very trying. Our room was very small and not at all what we had expected from the description online. It took talking to 3 different people to get a cot for our daughter and housekeeping was an everyother day event. There are no fans in the bathrooms which tended to create a humid environment for the rest of the day in the room. A fire alarm sounded twice at 4:30 a.m.; the front desk didn't answer their phone to explain if it was false or real. We have also been charged an additional fee of $122.26 and can't seem to get a return phone call to explain it. On the positive side, if you get up earlier than 9:00 a.m., the European breakfast is great. There were also a few star employees who made us feel taken care of when they were available. For the money however, this was not a luxury.
This is an excellent hotel with beautifully furnished rooms and public areas. It is quite luxurious, however, I was disappointed in the quality of the bathroom toiletries and the breakfast. All in all a terrific hotel, however, and I would definitely return.
We stayed at Hotel Lusso recently. It was a true treat. The location, across from The Davenport, is great. You can walk to the mall and see a movie or shop. We especially enjoyed walking around Riverfront Park at night. I will agree with a previous review, that the shampoo and conditioner provided as a courtesy, could have been a little better quality. Definitely, will return again.
2nd best luxury hotel in Spokane
The Hotel Lusso is the 2nd best luxury hotel in Spokane (Davenport is the best). However it is a very nice, very clean, richly decorated hotel.
I can suggest a better choice
On a recent trip to Spokane my husband and I decided to try a "sampler" of Spokane alternative hotels. We spent one night at the Lusso, which we thought very pleasant. Complaints were minor--room size and slightly indifferent staff didn't by any means spoil the stay. But the second night we came across a true find--The Reid House complex in Browne's Addition--several historic homes offering lodging just a few blocks west of downtown. We stayed in The Odell House, next door to the Reid House. The price was half the Lusso and the room was SO much nicer--not just a room, but a complete furnished apartment in this great old historic home. It's a quiet, mansion neighborhood, the owner was friendly and helpful, and it's walking distance to several nice places to eat. If you like the Lusso, you'll LOVE this little gem--The Reid House.
Hotel Lusso is a True "Small Boutique" Hotel
The moment we walked into the lobby of the Hotel Lusso I knew I had made the right choice. Everything about the property was first class, including the complimentary wine and cheese in the evening. The "continental breakfast" included fresh fruit, rolls, eggs, juice, ham, cheese, yogurt, and granola. I appreciated the personalized service, especially the offer to send someone out to buy some toothpaste, when I discovered I had run out. I highly recommend staying at this hotel, but visiting the Davenport across the street, so you don't feel that you've missed something.
We went to Spokane for a romantic weekend and we definetly had one! The Hotel Lusso was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable with soft down comforters. The bathroom was enormous! The bar downstairs was great, best martini's in Spokane! The staff/people were very friendly and helpful. Our only problem was when we checked in, our AC was not working but they switched us to another room and we were fine. The only down side was I thought the shampoo's and soap's they provided could have been of a higher quality. But that is minor and trivial. It was a wonderful hotel and will stay there again. The best part was waking up and heading downstairs for the breakfast, which was wonderful, to find band members from the Foo Fighters dining there as well! Can't beat that. Take your sweetie and run to the Hotel Lusso!
Spokane's very best
I've been to Hotel Lusso several times and will go back again. For the price it is by far the nicest place to stay in Spokane. The hotel lounge and restaurant are also very good.
A small gem
The Hotel Lusso is a small oasis in downtown Spokane. It is easy walking distance to theaters, restaurants, shopping, and businesses. The Limo driver was very helpful if I needed him.When you enter your first impression is the fountain, the fireplace, and the elegant, calm surroundings.The staff is great, the ambiance is wonderful, and the price is very fair, especially for one of the small luxury hotels of the world (see slh and type in Spokane).

Kind of makes me wonder if anyone does raft down this. It seems way way to rough for anyone to get through it. Just look at the videos below to see what I mean (It was windy, so the videos are loud, sorry!).

... long, the largest lake and reservoir in the state. Also had some Huckleberry ice cream at the visitor center. In Spokane we stayed at the Red Lion Hotel. It was very nice. Had dinner at Perkins, I had the fish and Steve had the pot roast. Very filling! Walked around Spokane, saw a park that had a large wagon. Took a gondola ride, was very warm inside. Saw a lot in Spokane while walking around. Didn't get back to the hotel until 8:30 or ...
Jon picked me up at 10:30pm and took me to the little nest he'd made for me in his basement. Gina was fast asleep as she'd been working long hours in their pizza restaurants. I never got to visit these last time, though Janet did, but Jon took me on a little tour of one which they've just spent a lot of effort and expense remodelling.

... when we hit an off camber right hander that exited directly to a bridge. I narrowly made the bridge and hauled my bike to a stop after another 30 yards. Tristan didn't make the bridge and went off the trail. With a gash on his thumb and legs bleeding, he was dripping blood fast enough to make a vampires pulse quicken! Alas, we made it to the bottom without further incident. Can you imagine, Tristan didn't want to do it again. I'm not as smart as he is, so up ...
... was competing as well - ah no, not convincing. As the photo shows we went through Moscow. Not at all how I thought it would be!#. Tomorrow we push on to Seattle and a much excited visit with Louise (Grant) and Juergen and family. We are still loving the ever changing scenery the States is offering. I must admit driving the afternoon shift is getting harder (tiredness) so I will be after the morning shift ...
