Staff was friendly, facilities were nice. When we needed to stay longer than we had planned, the check-in staff accommodated us, even though the hotel was busy and full. The housekeeping staff was friendly, prompt and helpful.

Good value for Tacoma. Quiet and comfortable. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Most recently we checked in very late on Saturday night; Sophie at the front desk went above and beyond to accommodate our special requests, despite the hotel being fully booked. She found us a room that not only suited our needs, it far exceeded our expectations.

Poor place to stay! Stay someplace else if you want a fun, and great experience for a date with your spouse in the city. This was our first trip spending the night on a "date" in Tacoma and we were disappointed in the accomodations.

Had a great stay. The bed was super comfy. Room was nice and clean. Somethings could use some upgrading but the price is right. Breakfast is good. Plenty of items to choose from. We enjoyed the pool. The jetted tub in our room was a very nice way to relax.

This is THE WORST hotel I have ever been in to date. It's in a shady part of town, the staff is friendly but does not appear professional, and the overall feel is appalling. To start, let me just say, this hotel's pictures look NOTHING like the hotel. The lobby has been renovated, but as soon as you step into...
