SOME PROBLEMS

Posted 16-Jan-2017
Pros: THEY PRINTED UP A ROAD MAP TO OUR CONCERT THAT HELPED UP GET TO OUR CONCERT LOCATION.
Cons: ITS A ROUGH AREA AND SECURITY WOULD BE A HELP. I AM SURE TACOMA HAS A FAIR SHARE OF PROBLEMS. BIG CITIES EQUALS BIG PROBLEMS
Location: WE LEFT AT 10 AM THE NEXT DAY AND LEFT THE CITY BEHIND. WE LIKE SMALLER , SAFER PLACES
ROOM 606--THE TOILET IS VERY LOW TO THE GROUND POSSIBLY FOR A SMALL PERSON .IT FELT LIKE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON MY KNEES AND LIFTED UP FIVE INCHES TO SIT DOWN .NO RAILINGS IN SHOWER OR RESTROOM . I AM NOT OVERWEIGHT BUT I AM 6 FOOT 3. MY WIFE IS 5 FOOT 6 AND SHE THOUGHT IT WAS AKWARD, AS WELL. WE WENT TO A CONCERT AND WAS TOLD THAT WE HAD TO USE OUR ROOM KET TO OPEN UP THE PARKING STRUCTURE AFTER 11 PM. WHEN WE ARRIVED AT MIDNIGHT, IT WAS WIDE OPEN EXPOSING THE PARKING TO ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS. WE DID SEE TWO CARS IN A DARKENED AREA NEXT TO THE FENCE THAT LOOKED LIKE A DRUG DEAL GOING ON. THE BREAKFAST ON SATURDAY MORNING HAD NO POTATOES , NO KETCHUP ,THREE ROLLS AND NOT THICK GRAVY BUT PLENTY OF SCRAMBLED EGGS .IT WAS 9 AM AND NOT MANY PEOPLE WERE EATING., BUT THERE WAS PLENTY OF TIP JARS AROUND . THE DOME NEXT DOOR HAD LOTS OF FENCES. IT SEEMED TO NOT BE ATTRACTING TO MANY ACTIVITIES. VERY BLACK AT NIGHT. KIND OF CREEPY. MANY OF THE ROADS IN THE AREA ARE BLOCKED OFF OR UNDER REPAIR AND AT NIGHT CAN BE HARD TO NAVIGATE.WE WILL NOT BE GOING BACK AGAIN. OVERPRICED!

OK for a business stay.

Posted 08-Jan-2017
Pros: Bed was OK.
Cons: Desk staff could use some cheering up.
Location: Tacoma is Tacoma.Too many things to do there to innumerate.
This hotel is an OK place for a business stay. It is an older hotel that has undergone renovations over the years, some of which were not done all that well. Rooms are small but comfortably equipped with the basic amenities. Breakfast is typical but complete. It is a full meal and not bad. The desk staff was grumpy and not very informative. Unlike some hotels where the staff tries to anticipate the client's needs, these folks seem to be minimally reactive. Parking space is very limited and the underground parking is really too narrow for a standard pick-up. If you're in town for a business meeting, there are conference rooms and business support for fax, wifi, etc.

Well-appointed, rooms are quiet, comfortable.

Posted 28-Dec-2016
Cons: Need spots in buffet area & lobby where one can't hear television. Toilets are too low; difficult for elderly to use; need to be taller.
Pleasant stay over Christmas holidays. Good breakfast buffet. Room was quiet. Had trouble with internet access one night but it was working again the next morning and that was the only trouble I had with it.

Nice view of the port of Tacoma.

Posted 26-Dec-2016
Pros: Room was clean, breakfast was generous and good,
Cons: The heating system in my room would only heat to the 60's turned all the way up to 90 and it was in the 30 outside, need 2 chairs in my room
Location: close to most anything needed, freight house sq. the glass museum, the dome, car museum
It worked out good for my business trip, close enough to the port but not to close.
