The Montvale Hotel is a boutique hotel in Spokane, Washington. Originally built in 1899 as an SRO (Single Room Occupancy Hotel), the Montvale Hotel also served Spokane as an apartment building, a brothel, and as a youth hostel during Expo '74 and then was abandoned for 30 years. It was restored and re-opened in January 2005 as a 36-room boutique hotel, becoming one of Spokane's premier hotels with The Davenport Hotel and the Hotel Lusso. On August 25, 2015, it was announced that the Montvale Hotel had been acquired by Jerry Dicker's Ruby Hospitality.
With the demolition of the Pennington Wing at the Davenport Hotel, the Montvale gained the distinction as Spokane’s oldest hotel. Kilmer and Son's Hardware was located on buildings' main floor for over 60 years. Kilmer once employed Henry J. Kaiser.
Currently located in the same building as the Montvale Hotel is Scratch Restaurant and is located on the street level of the building.
