We reserved a room at this beautiful hotel for just one night while we were in town for a concert at the EQC. When I made the reservation on their website we requested an early check-in. We arrived in Tacoma around 12:30 and our room was ready and waiting for us. This hotel promises a "water view" from all rooms and we were not disappointed. Right when we stepped into the room the view was breathtaking. The room was very nicely furnished and very clean without smelling like bleach or other cleaners. There was a small kitchenette and a nice bathroom as well. All in all we were very pleased with the room. Another bonus was that all windows in the room cranked open to allow us to smell and feel the water below. The rooms are very well insulated and very quiet. This hotel is directly across the street from railroad tracks and as long as the windows were shut you could hardly notice as trains went by. That was the one and only complaint that we had-we like to sleep with windows cracked and we were happy to have that option at this hotel right up until about 2 am when a train went flying by sounding its horn for miles... it about blew my husband out of the bed! As long as you keep the windows shut you'll be fine. This hotel is also right next to a beautiful walking, biking trail and is surrounded by a wonderful pier with easy access. One other thing to note: this hotel does not have a pool or hot tub. They do offer free washer and dryer and a small exercise room.
