Haunted Spokane: Ghost of the Davenport Hotel

Llewellyn Marks "Louis" Davenport still reportedly haunts the halls of his hotel in downtown Spokane. (10/28/16)

A Spokane historian has written a book on haunted places in Spokane. In true Halloween spirit, KREM 2 is sharing excerpts from Chet Caskey's book Haunted Spokane: Ghosts & Dark Places in the Lilac City.  

In 1889, a young man by the name of  Llewellyn Marks "Louis" Davenport arrived in Spokane.

A labor of love, Mr. Davenport opened a waffle restaurant, which grew into an exclusive eatery, and turned it into what we know today as The Davenport Hotel.

He was known to habitually wake at 3 a.m. and tour the hotel in his bathrobe and slippers concerned for his guests' happiness.

He lived in Suite 1103 until his death in 1951.

Frequently since then, members of the night shift have reported a ghost-like figure roaming the halls in a bathrobe and slippers.

Perhaps Mr. Davenport continues to care about hotel visitors long after his passing.
