Worthy's propose a 700 room 15 story hotel across from the opera house. No renderings yet but, if built, it will be a really big project of 550,000 square feet and a 900 space parking garage. The articles mention a U shape, which would at least mean that it won't be yet another square for Spokane. Hoping for an exterior finish incorporating more glass than Spokane's other taller buildings.

Tom Sowa The Spokesman-Review
In the span of four weeks Walt and Karen Worthy pieced together ambitious plans to build the city’s largest hotel: a 700-room, 15-story showpiece connected to the Spokane Convention Center.
The hotel and an adjoining parking garage would fill an entire block, with plans to compete for the status of headquarters for conventions. Groundbreaking is expected in first quarter 2013, with completion the following year.
