Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 I expect this is a Huntsman (Sparassidae) of some-sort, I haven’t tracked down a good enough match yet though. I’ll keep searching.
I just moved into an apartment on St.Vincent and saw a spider that looked just like this. It might have been 2 inches across, and it moved quickly and liked to hide. I had just reclined in a lazy boy chair with a hot cup of coffee when the spider crawled out from the uncharted depths of the chair and spooked me. I jumped out of the chair and spilled my coffee all over the place. Thanks for the ID ItsyBitsy. I needed some closure for peace of mind.
