I was in town for a course. I was put up in this hotel. It is very nice and modern. Rooms are spacious and clean. Location puts you within a few miles of most areas. The only downside is you have to pay to park whether it's across the street or valet.

So glad you enjoyed your stay! There are a number of parades and half-marathons that take place in downtown Tacoma throughout the year. The Courtyard balcony facing Pacific Avenue is an ideal place to enjoy a beverage and watch the festivities. More

We spent several days in Seattle and Tacoma area on vacation this week. We arrived early, and although early checkin was not available, the desk staff was great and very accommodating. Many thanks to Anastasia, Matt and Melvin, who worked with us to find a quiet room away from potential noise (there were several weddings happening that weekend). The room... More

We were in Tacoma for several days for a conference. There's not much to do in Tacoma, but it's a nice place to spend your time. Our room had a view over the water and we even got a view of Mt. Ranier one day when it was clear. The new restaurant in the hotel had good food and there... More

Some fun thigs to do in Tacoma include walking or biking at Ruston Way waterfront park (2-3 miles); rent scooters or bicycles; check out the local microbreweries; take a ferry to Vashon Island; explore the Maritime Museum; picnic at Thea Foss Landing; or explore Antique Row, to name a few! Thanks for staying with us! More

First visit to Washington. Easy to find this hotel from SeaTac. The hotel is beautiful, clean and very charming. I would definitely stay here again if I ever go back to Tacoma. Great for business or pleasure.

Thank you for mentioning how easy it is to get to the Courtyard Tacoma from SeaTac Airport. It is a straight drive south on the freeway (I-5) with a short exit into Tacoma. More

I stayed here 2 nights for business and found the hotel to be solid on all fronts and certainly one of the nicer Courtyards I have stayed in. The corner room seemed larger than average, with a nice view of Union Station. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel's location made it easy to walk to numerous restaurants.... More

The corner rooms and "extended queen" rooms are larger and usually cost only a little more - well worth it when you like to have company or just spread out. 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

I'm so glad you enjoyed the view and the extra large room! We have 20 rooms that are called "extended queens" that have 2 queen-size beds and a spacious living room area that includes the pull-out couch. The extended queens are great for families, as you mentioned, as well as small gatherings. Thank you for staying with us! 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.

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.
