Special Tour of the Davenport Hotel
January 21, 2015 10:00 AM
Wednesday Women's Group
The Spokane Bike Club Wednesday Women's Bike/Walking group will have a special tour of the Davenport Hotel beginning at 10:15 this tour can take up to 1 and 1/2 hours as we may see sights that are not normally shown such as the Penthouse where several presidents have stayed and other very unique theme rooms. The walkers will meet at the Riverpark Square Mall lobby at 10:00 and sign in then proceed on a mini walk then to the Davenport to arrive at the Davenport at 10:15 to meet our tour guide. Bikers can store their bikes below the Davenport Hotel in the parking garage and chain bikes there so bring chains- Bikers will do the tour then either eat lunch with the group or do a short bike ride with a leader from the bike group TBA. It is important to get a head count for those that plan to attend as we need to have at least 20 people to make the tour worthwhile as they have volunteer tour guides- also we need the headcount for lunch to reserve a table/tables at the Safari room where we will eat lunch. There are lunch specials for $6 at the Safari room. This is a very special and enjoyable event and those that have taken the tour with the scenic riders can attest this is a very worthwhile event as you will learn much about the history of both the Davenport Hotel and Spokane while experiencing the splendor of the Davenport.

little worry about having an injury, right?
