AAA has added The Davenport Grand, an Autograph Collection Hotel, to the list of AAA Four Diamond Hotels. The new hotel earned a AAA Four Diamond award during their first year of business and is the only new lodging added to the list in Washington.

“The Davenport Grand is the third Davenport property to earn this award,” said Jennifer Cook, AAA Washington spokesperson. “All three properties offer a unique guest experience. The original Davenport Hotel is known for its 1914 historically inspired ambiance, the Davenport Tower offers a modern look and feel and the newly awarded Davenport Grand boasts a more contemporary style. We’re honored to recognize all three properties for their world-class service and high industry standard for quality.”

The Davenport Grand, 333 W. Spokane Falls Blvd., is conveniently a sky bridge away from the Spokane Convention Center and INDB Performing Arts Center. Built in 2013, opened in June 2015, the 15-story Davenport Grand has 716 rooms and is a destination for business travelers, special occasions or leisure travelers alike.

"We are honored to be awarded the prestigious AAA Four-Diamond Award.  Our mission is to provide a high level of quality service and accommodations that are unmatched in our region.  This award adds the Davenport Grand to a very prestigious group of fine hotels in the USA and we could not be more proud of our team,” says Lynnelle Caudill, Managing Director of Davenport Hotels.

A total of 32 lodgings are represented on the AAA Four Diamond Award list in Washington and northern Idaho this year. While Washington does not have any AAA Five Diamond Award lodgings, these six hotels were added to the 2016 AAA Five Diamond list:

  • Hotel Mousai – Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
  • Park Hyatt New York – New York, N.Y.
  • St. Regis Deer Valley – Park City, UT
  • The Cloister – Sea Island, GA
  • The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain – Marana, AZ
