Made it into Spokane at about 9:00 p.m. Thursday night. Took a cab to the Davenport Hotel. Built in the early 20th century. Victorian opulence. Beautifully restored. Highly recommended.
Walked into our room; radio playing jazz, bed turned down.
Pam looked around and said: "What's this place costing us?" Started thinking maybe I didn't check the price when I booked it, and the rent was $1000 a night.
Landed at the hotel's Peacock Lounge where two stuffed namesakes hang from the ceiling.
The next morning, two newspapers were outside the door along with the bill--a very reasonable $170.00.
