The rooms are clean and people are so welcoming. Wesley was very helpful and patient. The entire staff goes above and beyond ensuring we felt welcome and were comfortable. The lobby area was well set up and to accommodate crowds of people. I highly recommend this well kept hotel.

Have stayed here a few times. Once again this past week was very comfortable and problem free. Best dinner I have had lately in tacoma was sitting out on the hotel second floor balcony at sunset, having a glass of wine and the BbQ chicken flatbread and a plate of pot stickers from the short menu.

Wonderful! The balcony is one of my favorite spots in the hotel. On beautiful days like yesterday, there is a wonderful view of the mountain, the water and downtown. Thank you for your business! More

Here's why I loved this place. - It felt new. - My room was large. - You can't hear your neighbors while in your room. - THE ROOM DOORS DO NOT SLAM! They close quietly. - The bed was awesome. - One block away you can hop on free transit that can take you to most places downtown. - You... More

We recently stayed three nights in Tacoma and this Courtyard is in a great spot. We could walk to some local restaurants and bars and the waterfront restaurants weren't too far away by car. We ran down to the waterfront in the morning---spectacular. The service was great at the Courtyard and the breakfast (although it's not free) is great. I... More

Thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed many of the activities nearby. There are also 5 museums within walking distance - America's Car Museum, Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum, Washington History Museum and an interactive Children's Museum. Our guest rooms were remodeled over a year ago, and the fact they still look new is a testament to... More

It took forever for my room to be ready when I checked in, but I was staying during the weekend of the state's Democratic convention so it was probably just filled to capacity. I was forewarned. Loved my room and it's been a while since I've said that about a standard business trip hotel room. It was large and the... More

Thank you for staying with us! The rooms on the east and south sides of the building have great views of Mt. Rainier on sunny days. I am sorry to hear about the spoon disappearing.

Very clean and nice hotel, friendly staff, and great location. I rented a car to get around but soon realized it wasn't necessary. Within walking distance of everything going on in Tacoma. Museums, restaurants and even waterfront ( 3 miles or so). It was my first time visiting and I would stay at the same place if/when I go back.

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. The downtown waterfront just keeps growing and offering more to do. There are a couple of restaurants about 1/2 mile from the hotel that look out at Commencement Bay. It's beautiful! We look forward to your return. :) More

Great hotel conveniently located across from the convention center. The room I stayed in was really nice and spacious. The front desk personnel was very professional and welcoming. I highly recommend this hotel for business and pleasure.

This is supposedly a top spot location downtown, you would think it would be a little bit more on its toes. Valet seemed frantic and ill prepared. Front desk young and inexperienced.

Stayed here for a wedding in Tacoma. Have no desire to ever come back to this hotel. The room was very bland. It just felt like I had a bed and a desk. As a Gold Elite, I am used to courtyards offering free breakfast, but they did not acknowledge or give me anything for my loyalty. Very disappointing. Location... More
