More chances to take sides on the Walt Worthy downtown Convention Center hotel. Not that we take any sides in the matter.
The latest architect's rendering is shown here, thanks to efforts by Worthy's Davenport Hotel Collection company.
Also here (below) is a PFD document with a detailed summary and drawings of what will be inside the huge 722-room, 15-room hotel.
The work continues on the ground and is expected to continue through next year, with an expected opening in 2015.
The whole point, according to the Spokane Public Facilities District, is to give downtown a lot more room and more dazzle to attract events and conventions. A consultant told the PFD that the hotel will draw roughly nine more events each year to the Convention Center and generate roughly 20,000 extra room nights from those conventions.
It also predicted the hotel would host 75 to 100 new events per year.
