LOVE THIS HOTEL!! Posted 22-Nov-2014
Having booked this hotel sight unseen, I was a bit skeptical, but as soon as we checked in, all doubts vanished. We live about 3+ hours from Tacoma and had tickets to see Fleetwood Mac at the Tacoma Dome, so we wanted to arrive a day early so we could take in the Tacoma Glass Museum, too. We spent two nights here, and were so pleased with our choice. The staff at the desk were lovely and welcoming, and provided us with a secure garage spot for our car. We were assigned a room on the 8th floor, overlooking the University of WA Tacoma campus, showing us the path to the downtown area (Pacific Ave) and the docks where the Glass Museum is located, and where we could catch the FREE city light rail to the Dome. A number of wonderful restaurants and shops, plus the WA History Museum and the beautiful Union Station building are conveniently located close to the Glass Museum and the Chihuly Glass Bridge. Our HUGE room was very fresh & clean. King size bed, small refrigerator, coffee maker with complimentary coffee and tea, huge flat screen TV, comfortable chairs, nice desk, plenty of lighting. Very large bathroom with safety bars next to the toilet and in the tub, which also sported a pull-down seat. Complimentary bath toiletries, hair dryer, plenty of extra towels. Closet contains an iron and ironing board. Elevators to the lobby and garage are clean and modern. Extensive buffet breakfast included in our room charge.
