Stayed here twice for business. Staff is pleasant and the hotel is clean. Very central to downtown Tacoma and easily accessible and within walking distance of many restaurants. Area is pretty quiet at night though I did hear the train once or twice. I would definitely stay here again.

This was a fairly decent hotel. Everything was clean and functioning. Hot coffee and tea available 24/7. Good breakfast bar, kids had fun in the pool. Beds were loved by everyone except me as I need a firm mattress. Extremely soft beds. Definitely would stay again, convenient location to interstates, food and shopping.

My friend and I need two rooms in an emergency on a Thursday evening. Matt came through with great rooms and excellent recommendations for dining. We had a great dinner and a wonderful restful night sleep; I couldn't be more pleased!

I just wanted to thank the front desk staff who warmly welcomed us and particularly the Birthday Cupcake for my son! It really set a nice tone for our stay - I also appreciated the IHG Platinum recognition as well as the late check-out. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

I have stayed at this hotel twice when attending a concert at the Tacoma Dome. The most recent was 10/1/16 and both times it was an excellent place to stay. It's within walking distance to the Tacoma Dome and less than $5 taking an Uber to; however, prices from may be higher due to more demand (as we were told...

Great room , top floor which I like , don't get an odd numbered room though , the view is of the backside of a bar which used to be a warehouse! Another minus , 7 dollars to park in the hotel owned garage (or you can park outside , in Tacoma's old warehouse district!) I won't advise this option...

Booked a room here for a one night stay while we were in town for a wedding. Very friendly staff with easy check in and check out.
