It's a beautiful hotel in a great location. Great and friendly housekeeping staff. Comfortable beds and rooms. This hotel deserves a five star unfortunately, they won't get it. The staff at thier bistro and front desk( cause they are usually the same people) are horrible. I waited an hour for .my breakfast. And when I finally got it, it was... More

I booked this quickly and didn't read much about this hotel. Was so pleased at our very large room overlooking the downtown. The entire hotel seems new, bedding excellent and overall decor very pleasant. We did not use the pool but it would have been nice. Parking across street very easy and close proximity to Glass Museum just great. Very... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while in Tacoma for a wedding at nearby 6th Street Event center. Google maps on my phone got me to the hotel from the airport easily and without confusion. Although the hotel was sold out, check in was quick and efficient, and even though I was using Marriot Rewards Certificates for the stay, the... More

Anna and Anastasia in "The Bistro" clearly understand that they play an important role in how their guests' day begins and they clearly exceed expectations with their friendly smiles and gracious, pleasant personalities. Like Anna and Anastasia, everyone here demonstrates a desire to treat their customers like their own personal guests. I witnessed this everywhere: from the valet, to the... More

This is actually one of the nicest Courtyard Marriotts I have been to, and I travel a lot on business and often stay in Courtyard Marriotts. Great location for downtown and access to public transport. Very close to the museums. Staff was nice and business center surprisingly had a color printer and a nice relaxing library. One minus is that... More

There is a fun night life just a short cab ride away in the Proctor District - lots of restaurants and night clubs that stay open later than the downtown restaurants. Glad you enjoyed your visit! More

Good experience from start to finish. Helpful staff at check in, good advice for where to walk around before dinner. The room was immaculate and quiet, the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was the menu you find at many Courtyards around the country, and it is consistent. Thumbs up. We'd stay here again.

I have stayed here a few times while taking my child to or from college or for a visit. It is clean, and comfortable, no extra frills. Within walking distance there are many attractions, the glass museum, the harbor, the courthouse, a museum, etc. Valet parking is an expense, there is a free garage down the street to park yourself....

Now that our remodeling is finished, there are more gathering spaces to sit and work, watch TV or socialize with friends -- all with free wi-fi and plug-ins. We enjoyed large groups gathering over the last few days to watch the World Cup in the home theater area. More

We stayed here on a Saturday night and the hotel was extremely busy due to local high school graduations and a wedding. When I checked in early around noon, there were no standard queen rooms available as we had reserved. The front desk attendant was swamped, handling checkouts and phone calls and still maintained a positive friendly attitude and handled... More

This was my second stay at the Tacoma Courtyard. This stay was as good as the first. The staff at the Courtyard are cheerful and welcoming. They were pleasant to interact with.

I was in Tacoma recently and stayed at the Marriott Courtyard Tacoma Downtown. This courtyard is downtown and close to the convention center and other downtown business. This is one of the new upgrades and is very comfortable. The staff is friendly and very helpful, rooms are great.

Two very important factors when selecting a hotel are consistently clean rooms and consistently friendly staff. We are so proud to have both! Thank you for staying! More
