Reviewed 28 December 2016

Rooms are nicely designed, very clean and well maintained. Check in and valet service were both quite good. Would be nice if the receptionist would note that the elevator requires the key card to be swiped. The lady at the coffee counter was extremely pleasant on Christmas day. The only negative is the condition of the equipment in the fitness...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and complimenting the Bistro server who helped you on Christmas day. We aim to keep the fitness center in good working order, so please feel free to email me back and let me know what needs attention.

Stayed here over night and it was top of the line and wonderful relaxing trip. I was happy with my stay and the front desk staff was easy to work with. They got us a crib fast and the staff was very welcoming. Breakfast was one of the best we have had. I would recommend and come here again for...

I always love this hotel. The people are so friendly. They remember who you are each year you come back which means they have long tenured employees as well. The rooms are always clean too. Always ask for the mountain view and they are always willing to accommodate that request

This is a nice hotel, but I'm used to more pampering at the Hampton Inns. Bistro was very nice in the morning, a better breakfast than continental, but pricey. The location was good - lots of restaurants to visit within walking distance.

Stayed at this Courtyard while attending a conference at the nearby University of Washington Tacoma campus. The hotel looked like it had ben recently built or renovated. It featured the trademark Courtyard lobby with lobby lounge and menu; I had a convenient dinner there one evening. The rooms are standard Courtyard rooms: large, comfortable beds, plenty of work space, television...

Thank you for the thorough and complimentary review! We love hearing about how new the hotel looks. It was remodeled 2 years ago and it's fresh look is a testament to our great housekeeping and maintenance team. The ever-expanding University of Washington campus adds to the beauty and revitalization of downtown Tacoma. Thank you for staying with us!!

This is one of the finest Courtyards I have stayed at. The staff was gracious. The King bed was wonderful with an extra blanket in the closet - always a great touch. Fridge, coffee maker, and nice big bathroom. Great desk area for work with wired and wireless internet. Comfortable seating area. Great breakfast areas, turns into nice lounge in...

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for the nice comments. Some of our rooms (extra-large double-queen rooms) are like mini-suites with a large sitting area -- great for small parties or families. Parking charges have changed a little and the valet service is now $17. I just don't want anyone to be disappointed if they think it...

While there isn't a lot going on in Downtown Tacoma over the weekend (at least during our visit) we enjoyed our stay at the courtyard. Rooms are in good shape and well-maintained, staff is friendly. Lobby is good for sitting outside of the rooms, a few good restauarants nearby. Valet parking kind of steep for the area at $17/night, and...

This is a typical Courtyard, but one of the best at which we have stayed. The rooms are good sized, and the views of the sound from top floor are nice. Room was spotless, and the bathroom spacious. There is some noise from the street, but didn't really bother us. If some noise bothers you, ask for a room facing...

Carol P, Director of Sales at Courtyard Tacoma Downtown, responded to this review

Thank you for your complements and good advice regarding areas of the hotel that would be more noise-free. Another tip for travelers is to let the hotel know your personal preferences when making a reservation (for example, avoiding noise, or being close to an elevator, or preferring high or low floors) . Or tell the Front Desk agent when you...
