Davenport Hotel lays off three managers
Spokane’s Davenport Hotel let go three managers on Wednesday, including Tom McArthur, the company’s historian and communications director since 2003.
The names of the two other workers were not disclosed.
“I can confirm I don’t work there anymore,” said McArthur, who has been an active spokesman for the historic downtown hotel. “But I signed an agreement not to disclose the details of my severance,” he said.
Managing Director Lynnelle Caudill said McArthur and one other manager let go will have the chance to do occasional work for the hotel, through contracts.
Caudill said the ongoing economic slump has affected the hotel’s bottom line. The Davenport has about 300 full-time workers and more than 50 managers, she said.
