West Coast hotel for sale

Man, it's been a crazy couple of weeks. And not "good" crazy, either. Anyway....

Downtown Spokane needs to brace itself for yet another makeover. WestCoast Hospitality wants to sell the Ridpath Hotel and Crescent Court (along with a basket of other properties) to finance renovations of their Red Lion chain. Cresecent Court is the old Frederick & Nelson building (speaking of good things that are no longer with us). What will happen to these properties is anyone's guess at this point, but a walk around downtown will show that Spokane is overbuilt. It would be a shame to see them mothballed or torn down. My family has a warm spot for the Ridpath from a business trip/vacation nearly 10 years ago.
