Good hotel. Location is great!! Walking distance to plenty of restaurants and very easy access to the Interstate. No problems with my stay and the staff was very helpful with any questions that I had.

The Courtyard is a nice hotel in Tacoma near the financial district and the college. The rooms are nice and for the small upcharge, valet parking is worth it. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance, easy access to the freeway and the light rail, and a variety of museums and such to check out.

Thank you for your nice comments! Manager's Tip: If you are traveling alone and want a larger room, you could request a room with two queen beds. The double-queens are the same price as the kings, but many of them are bigger. More

I have stayed here four times in the last year and after our recent stay, will not return. We checked in at 8:00 p.m and as it was my ten year old daughter and I, used the valet services for which we waited over 20 minutes. Once we were inside, the man at the front desk was less than attentive... More

I'm so sorry things didn't go well on your last visit. Fire alarms are serious business. For your safety, there is an an exit plan on every guest room door, as well as by the elevators and stairwells. The plans request guests to exit the building and gather outside, where we can communicate the next plan of action or inform... More

The property itself is beautiful, I love the staircase in the lobby. However, we stayed here a few years ago and they had complimentary coffee 24hours a day, but this time they have switched over to having a "Bistro" where you have to purchase Starbucks coffee and it is only available for a few hours a day. Otherwise you are... More

Our stay exceeded all our expectations! With their attentive customer service, various onsite amenities, and overall feel. Both my husband and I were so pleased to have had such an amazing night sleep! The beds are so comfortable. While in town taking in the Fleetwood Concert, the hotel was full with positive energy. Steps away from the complimentary community link,... More

It's nice to hear how much you enjoyed your stay in Tacoma. You would definitely enjoy the spa, one of the most beautiful ones in Puget Sound! Here's a tip for the holidays: check out our special between now and January 19, 2015, to get a $20 credit at The Bistro! We look forward to your next visit! More

The best thing about this Courtyard is the location. Close to restaurants, and attractions. Step out the back door and cross the street for a stroll across the Bridge of Glass, surprise gem! then on to the waterfront. The rooms are comfortable, with full kitchen. Good for business travel or with the family.

In addition to over 25 restaurants, cafes and diners, there are 5 museums within walking distance: Tacoma Art Museum, Museum of Glass, Washington State History Museum, Children's Museum and America's Car Museum! Each room has a microwave and a mini-refrigerator but not everyone would consider it a full kitchen since we don't have dishes or a separate sink. Thank you... More

I called the 800-number for the Marriot to schedule my reservation because I needed a government rate and didn't see it on the web site. The person on the telephone claimed that he didn't know how to do that or check into it. He however took my info and made my reservation. When I arrived at the hotel, they tried... More

Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry to hear there was confusion over the reservation process. The availability of rates should be the same whether you reserve online or on the phone. Marriott has a "Look No Further" policy so the best available rates are through Marriott.com. More

Checked in to this Courtyard for a one night stay in November. Not the cheapest rate ever but it was all made worthwhile by a great upgrade to a room with a Spa Bath, exceptional bed and friendly staff. I have stayed here before and it is still a quiet, convenient location. One downside - the local brewery was sold... More

Very clean, great amenities, staff was kind, courteous, and knowledgeable about the area. Walking distance to great restaurants. Try the Pacific Grill, great food and located just below the hotel. Will definitely stay again on my next visit. A big thanks to the Bistro staff, you all were a blast.

The first thing when we pulled up was there was NO room to park for check in. The pull in area is so small. We decided to valet park. No one offered to get our bags (we were staying 3 nights). I had to go inside, get a cart and load our own. Once we checked in, we took our... More

Thank you so much for staying with us. We're sorry for the difficulties you encountered with your reservation. Our lowest floor with rooms is floor 3, so I am guessing that whoever assigned your room thought one floor up would be acceptable. I know how frustrating it can be when a special request is not honored, and I'm truly sorry... More
