What You'll Get
After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $78, you get a one-night stay in a deluxe queen room (up to a $169 value), overnight valet parking (a $15 value), and a $20 gift card to Catacombs Pub at the Montvale Hotel (up to a $204 total value).
Built in 1899 and recognized by the National Register of Historic Places, the Montvale is one of Spokane's oldest hotels. The cozy collection of rooms is nestled in the heart of one of the city's vibrant arts districts and is a short sashay from ample eats, shops, and entertainment. A steel art-deco canopy designed by local artist Hazen Audel beckons passersby like the come-hither motions of a hypnotist, and the interior's crackling fireplace warms guests up for the night's stay. Each deluxe queen room comes with a comfy bed cloaked in crisp white linens, a flat-screen TV, cable, wireless Internet, and an oversized bathroom. Spacious 11-foot ceilings coupled with the various amenities make each room ideal for motives ranging from romantic escapes to routine escapism.
When hunger strikes, plumb the depths of Catacombs Pub, which is located in the stone-walled basement of what was once the hotel's boiler room. Put the included $20 gift card toward the central European–influenced menu or grab some brews to sip while contemplating the pros and cons of using dolphins as surfboards.
