Cons: Better service
Location: Available to children museum. Have enjoyed Marriot hotels in past, this was most disappointing!
We had reservations 1 week in advance, checked in 2pm, 2nd room not available until 5.39pm unacceptable, with young child who wanted to change, go swimming.

Great location steps away from Convention Center

Posted 01-May-2017
Pros: The convenience of it's location, steps away from the Convention Center.
Cons: Need to have a buffet style breakfast, so people can get in and out quickly in the mornings.
Location: Convention Center, coffee shops, pizzerias, Hello Cupcake, the Glass Museum, Children's Museum
The location of this hotel was great. Steps away from the Convention Center where our event was being held made it the perfect hotel to stay at. And we were excited that there was in house dining options. Unfortunately the dining options left a lot to be desired which is why I gave this hotel just an okay rating. The cafe/bistro in the hotel was awful. Dinner was a $30 frozen pizza. Breakfast was even more ridiculous. Having to wait in a long line just to purchase things like milk, coffee and fruit. And waiting over 30 minutes to get scrambled eggs and toast was ridiculous! The following evening we thought we'd try a better dining option like the Pacific Grill which is part of the same building as the hotel although you have to walk outside to get there. The hotel advertises this restaurant in it's rooms, but I must have missed where it said reservations required so needless to say we ended up eating at a fabulous, casual pizza place a couple blocks from the hotel instead. As it turns out the in house dining options weren't great options after all!

Close to everything

We liked that we could walk to enjoy many of the sights and museums, but major shopping malls and additional sightseeing was easy to access via car from hotel

This is a beautiful hotel with great service. We stayed for a concert at the Tacoma Dome and were able to take the free trolley right there.

Not enough staff in the Bistro

Posted 21-Mar-2017 on Hotels
The Hotel itself was excellent, and the Staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant in the lobby however was extremely understaffed for the demand that was placed on it since there was a large event across the street at the Tacoma Convention Center. Extremely slow since there were essentially only 3 people working at any one given time and they just could not keep up with either food or drinks. I understand that there is not always this type of crowd, but in my opinion, it would make sense for the hotel management to have knowledge of large gatherings that would require the possibility to have more people on hand to help with the surge in customers.

Ok hotel. Too expensive for the issues it has

Posted 19-Mar-2017 on Hotels
Things were good about this hotel as far as helpful staff, location. The room was clean, but the extra blankets had hair on them. And the pull out bed was terrible. Very thin mattress that didn't lay flat. It had hair on it as well. Didn't sleep well at all on it. The rooms are too expensive for that kind of thing. Also no room service which was disappointing.

Nice, Convenient Although A Bit Expensive

Posted 15-Mar-2017
No complains except that the price is expensive. I've been staying at Marriott Courtyard quite often at Emeryville in Berkeley when my daughter was still in college. And they are pretty much the same but this is the most expensive stay that I had.
