This is a wonderful hotel, located in the heart of was once the bustling town of Tacoma. The area is safe, but there is a four block section along Pacific Avenue (the main drag) where there are 3 banks, one Starbucks, and 199 empty storefronts. Definitely, I worry about this hotel being able to maintain its quality while trying to survive in an area hit hard by the economy.
The rooms are clean, luxuriously comfortable, with very unique art in the hallways, public areas, and the rooms. Up high, one can view Commencement Bay. The windows open so a nice breeze is available during the night. (A nice amenity!) The prices are all over the board, so be sure to bargain with the reservation clerk. I checked the prices of a few fellow travelers -- and the prices ranged from $113 to $183 per night in just one elevator load of guests.
This is the best hotel in the proximity of Point Defiance Park, so if you are in town for a wedding, definitely a good host hotel for you. Along Ruston Way, you will find at least five seafood restaurants worth tasting.
