Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 29, 2012

I have never stayed at this hotel, but if I can find a decent price for it some night in the off-season I might decide to stay here. My star rating of three stars is only because there is a star rating required by the VT system, and based on what little experience I have had with the hotel. I did eat in The Bite restaurant on the 4th Floor. I imagine this is a great hotel for those who have stayed here, but I have not.

The reputation of this hotel around the Pacific Northwest revolves mostly around the artwork collection that it has accumulated, and as such the hotel is actually a regular participant in the Third Thursday Tacoma Artwalk. At last count, the hotel has won seven awards for its artistic yet functional design. Alaska Airlines Magazine suggests staying a night and riding the elevator to every floor to see the art in every elevator lobby.

The location is exceptionally good, as it is pretty much right in the middle of downtown Tacoma. It is close to all the core downtown businesses, the convention center, and the theatre and museum district.

It is also a fairly tall building for Tacoma (it was originally constructed as a Sheraton Hotel, but later that chain decided to leave the area), and based on the height of the building there should be some rooms in the hotel that have a reasonably good view.

At one time internet access cost an additional fee per night. However, as best as I can tell that has now been abandoned.

There is a fitness room, as I saw it on my way to The Bite from the lobby, but there wasn't anyone in there at that time.

There was a convention of some sort using the banquet room downstairs, and my guess is that when such a convention is using the hotel the price of the rooms for the general public goes up. As I have occasionally shopped for rooms here it appears there are some periods when a two night stay is required just to get a room.

Some of the hotel packages here include valet parking and other extras.

Unique Quality: For an extra fee, there are pet-accessible rooms.

Directions: Interstate 5 to I-705 to A Street Exit to S15th and north 1 block on Broadway. One block uphill from the downtown Tacoma end of the TacomaLink streetcar and many local bus lines.
