Unique, quaint and oldPosted Aug 21, 2014
The Montvale had a very small entrance, it has old furnishings, kind of vintage and shabby. The 2nd floor has a nice lobby with antiques, including the chairs, a glass ceiling that lets in the natural light and was nice for reading. Lots of wood trim including in the rooms. A cozy feel. Parking is on the street feeding the meters or in a lot behind the hotel for $12.00. Since it's not in the best part of town I felt safer on the street. More upscale areas, shopping etc is only blocks away. I would go again for the ambience but it is definately not main stream. It took me back to an earlier era when I know it would have been a very beautiful hotel.

Historic hotel - great location & cozy bedsPosted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: I loved that it was an older historic hotel that was refurbished. It had that awesome old hotel vibe going on. Also GREAT location and beds.
Cons: The hotel could use a more attentive cleaning staff. The room was clean, but it was dusty.
Location: It is on the edge of downtown. I recommend Brooklyn deli (behind the hotel) Scratch restaurant (right next door) and Luxe coffee (a few doors down)
I enjoyed my stay at the Montvale. It was a GREAT location for getting to everything. The parking situation is a bit strange, and you have to purchase parking passes. It is an older hotel, so it has personality and charm. There is free coffee and hot water at all times, a great reading/lounge area, and a really good food nearby. There is a raised railroad very close to the hotel, but it is not loud. I actually enjoyed watching the trains go by when I was in my room. The bed was super comfortable and the room was nicely sized and laid out. The bathroom was a perfect size too. Not too small and plenty of room to put toiletries and flatirons.

Awesome bed minimal ammenetiesPosted Aug 19, 2014
Their king bed was very comfortable! The shower and jacuzzi was a little small, no fridge no microwave, out dated TV, and their ice machine was needing replacing (not a lot of ice and broken front faceplate). I dropped off my bags at 9am before my wedding, and the hotel staff told me it would be waiting in my room. When I got there at 5pm it was not in the room. Other hotel staff were personable but not professional.

Quick weekend getawayPosted Aug 15, 2014
Awesome venue. Loved the sunlight coming through the huge artsy skylight and antique furniture in the atrium area. The bed was MOST comfortable. Large room and bathroom. I will definitely stay here again.

This hotel was very disappointingPosted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: The location was good in the Entertainment district.
Cons: The overall condition of the hotel and the customer service.
Location: Can walk to restaurants and theaters.
In our experience this is not a 3.5 star hotel. It is not very clean, is shabby and in need of an overhaul. Also, the walls are paper thin and we had very noisy neighbours so we got very little sleep. We complained to the front desk but that did not stop the noise.

Nice redo of old hotelPosted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Attractive upgrade of old building.
Cons: Better trained staff. Better blackout curtains to darken rooms.
Location: Spokane Falls and downtown Spokane.
Great looking interior with big and generally comfortable rooms, though they are somewhat noisy as the hotel is located on busy streets with a mainline railroad 3blocks away. The desk staff were pleasant but did not know much about nearby restaurants, etc.
