I am a frequent guest at Hotel Murano. I grew up in Tacoma and return frequently to visit family and to spend holidays. Once again, I stayed at Hotel Murano during my recent Thanksgiving visit to see family. The service remains excellent from check-in to check-out. Be sure to stop by the lobby bar for a cocktail with bartenders Deborah or Kristina. They are part of why I return to the hotel on every visit to Tacoma. They always remember me, give me a warm greeting, and help to create a unique, personal experience which makes my stay at Hotel Murano go from excellent to exceptional! I hope hotel management recognizes what excellent brand ambassadors they have in both Deborah and Kristina!
My room this visit was on the 15th floor with a wonderful view looking south. I enjoyed watching the sunrise each morning over Mt. Rainer. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. I always enjoy spending time looking at the glass art on the different floors. If you enjoy glass art, ask the front desk for a "tour map" and go from floor to floor enjoying the work of the different glass artists featured.
My only disappointment this visit was housekeeping. I returned to the hotel around 5:00pm one day to find that my room had not been serviced. This was surprising as the occupancy rate over Thanksgiving was low. However, I called the front desk and asked if it could be done after I went out for the evening. It was taken care of promptly and when I returned later in the evening, the room was spotless. A small blip on an otherwise flawless stay!
The hotel is also an easy walk to the wonderful Tacoma museums. Take time to walk around downtown Tacoma. It's improved a lot since I grew up there and there are some wonderful small businesses and antique stores one should explore.
