Driving and Parking


Spokane is on Interstate 90, a four and a half hour drive east from Seattle, a longer but still direct drive from points east for those with business reasons to travel by car, or who just want to enjoy a road trip across the American West. I-15 goes south through Montana and Idaho to Salt Lake City. Spokane is also on Amtrak’s famous northern “Empire Builder” line from Chicago and is the most important stop between Minneapolis and Seattle.

This is fire season in the Western US, and there are a number of fires burning in Washington. The Washington Smoke Information website posts smoke, fire and air quality information for Spokane and elsewhere in Washington.


For members staying at convention hotels, information about parking at your hotel is provided on the Hotels page.

There is also paid parking at the convention center and nearby. The Spokane Convention Center indoor parking garage at 322 N Spokane Falls Ct. is shared with the Doubletree hotel. An additional lot is located across the street. Information about these and other parking options, including a map, is offered on the Spokane Parking Finder website.
