Everything was great. Staff was friendly. Building was clean and beautiful. Glass is great. Definitely not a discount hotel, but worth every penny. One complaint is the bacon. I ate breakfast at 930am and it had obviously been cooked around 5-6am and simply kept heated. It tasted old because it was. It's not too much to ask: the Bite restaurant... More

Each room in this hotel feels like a work of art, but you really have to take the time to visit each floor and view the art in the corridors. It's remarkable, and you'll especially enjoy the stories about each artist, quotes by them, and the photos of them creating the very works that are displayed! Stunning!

Dear Susan, Good advice in suggesting that you should take your time when enjoying the art throughout the hotel. There is so much to see... and we have informational guides available at our Front Desk as well. Thank you for the feedback, and I hope that you'll be able to join us again. Best regards, Stan Kott, General Manager More

Stayed at the hotel Murano for a week. Very nice and clean rooms. Excellent cleaning service, prompt, efficient and consistent (shampoos and soaps are always replenished). Highly recommend this hotel if you are in the Tacoma area.

Admittedly, I was a bit concerned when I saw the recent reviews, but Mr Urologist's brother was getting married in Tacoma, and, well, the options are limited. Wow, was I wrong. Everyone who works here, from the valets to the front desk, is lovely. The room was clean and large. The bed was comfortable and, although we were right next... More

This was a good base for a golfing break. The room initially allotted to us was fine except for being adjacent to the lifts which meant we got the accompanying sounds. This was changed without any problem and our next room was also a good size, clean and modern with a view of Mount Rainier when the clouds permitted. We... More

This was our second stay here. My last review for our stay Nov. 2012, was not as good due to issues my wife had at the Spa. No Spa visit this time. The Murano is such a beautiful hotel. Glass art throughout the place. Each floor features a different artist. The Lobby is gorgeous! The rooms are modern and plenty... More

I was really looking forward to my stay at the Murano after talking to friends, but it just didn't ring my bells at all. It's clearly a remodel of an older hotel and the boxy room had a cookie cutter feel from the start that cool art could not disguise. I hated the grey walls in rainy Sea-Tac, the depressing... More

Very clean. King bed was comfortable. Work function serving staff was friendly and attentive. Staff in lobby bar also. Room service in 20 minutes. Offers valet or self parking. Self parking spots narrow for SUV. Key to mini bar optional. Would stay again if in area.

Thanks for the succinct and positive feedback. I do agree that some of our parking slips are designed for smaller vehicles, but, we typically have plenty of larger slips available amongst our three parking lots to accommodate most vehicles. Please do join us again sometime. Stan Kott, General Manager More

After a summer of US road trips and many chain motels, it was a treat to spend a night on our way to Vancouver at The Murano Hotel in Tacoma. Thanks to Tacoma native Dale Chihuly who spearheaded the 20th century glass renaissance, the area has become a world center for glass artists. The Museum of Glass and adjoining bridge... More
