view of downtown that was gorgeous!

Posted 29-Jun-2017
Pros: The pool, the breakfast, the beds and pillows. The beautiful decor and how comfortable everything was. Great personable staff!
Location: We walked around the university next door. Its near some great restaurants including the Old Spaghetti Factory. About 10 to 15 min from Point Defiance
We came to town to go to the zoo. The hotel was lovely. The rooms were spotless with every accommodation. We have 4 little kids and they had a great time there. We had lots of room and we never heard a neighbor. The pool was so perfect, not cold like some hotels.. :) The breakfast had little omelets and a pancake machine.With lots more options as well. The helping you sleep guide was awesome, and the pillows just perfect. We will be back!

Great Place

Posted 26-Jun-2017
Pros: Location, easy access to I5, easy parking, great bed & pillows, great breakfast (omelettes, biscuits & gravy, pancakes, sweet rolls, cereals)
Cons: Nothing, had no issues during my stay.
Location: Lots of food/drink options, a few blocks to the light rail station that takes you to the Tacoma Dome station (and it was free), close to UW Tacoma
In Tacoma to see Roger Waters @ the Tacoma Dome. Never been there and never stayed in Tacoma, so it was all new to me. Will stay here again if I ever go to an event at the Tacoma Dome. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Parking was cheap and probably could have even found parking on the street since I arrived early. Was happy that my room was available despite arriving at 1:00.

Great Hotel

Posted 30-May-2017
Pros: Location was very convenient, nice rooms, friendly staff.
Location: Perfect for attending events at Tacoma Dome. Easy and inexpensive to Uber or Lyft over to Venue. Close to downtown as well.
Very nice, clean, comfortable hotel. We attended a concert at Tacoma Dome and spent time in downtown Tacoma and along the pier. Hotel was easy and accessible to these spots. Would highly recommend staying here. Great value!

Much nicer than expected!

Posted 15-May-2017
Pros: Price, cleanliness, and great staff.
Cons: At least a note in the listings letting us know the rooms do not have tubs, just showers. It's hard to bathe a 2-year old in a shower.
Location: If you have young children who need something to do, especially if the weather is bad, check out the Tacoma Children's Museum!
We booked a two night stay here only because the two other hotels in downtown Tacoma were booked. We normally stay at the Hotel Murano, and because this room was cost less than we normally pay there we were not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised the moment I checked in. The lobby was spotless and the staff was great. The mini-suite room we stayed in was spacious and included a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, sink, cupboards stocked with disposable plates, utensils, paper towels, and dish soap. The couch converted to a hide-a-bed, and the linens for it were conveniently stored on the top shelf of the closet. We had our two-year old with us and they provided a real crib (not a pack & play) at no charge. One drawback was there was not tub, just a double shower. There was a $7 a night parking fee to use there garage, but I consider that fairly reasonable compared to other places I've stayed. Most parking spots were a little tight, but the garage was never crowded while we were there and roomier spots could be found. The breakfast buffet was good, there was always plenty of food available. The biggest drawback to this hotel is it is about a half mile from the convention center, compared to the other two downtown hotels, which are just a block or two away. Thankfully we discovered Uber rides were just $4 each way and fairly prompt when requested. I gave an overall rating of 5 because we were very happy with our stay which exceeded our expectations

Simple efficient

Ishtar on the edge of the current renewal of downtown Tacoma. Provided a nice place to stay within walking distance to the convention center, UW Tacoma, museums and many excellent restaurants.

Felt like a five-star hotel to me !!!

Posted 27-Apr-2017 on Hotels
I would like to talk about someone from within the hotel helped me so much and I want to honor her the date as you know was the 26th of April a blond headed young girl was on duty at the front desk , one of my friends called the front desk because I was not doing well in my room because of MS . She sued me and told me she was there and whatever I needed she could help me and she understands MS . I felt immediate relief and everything was made to work and I would only hope that you follow through with this and reward her with something , she is outstanding and she is a keeper .
