The vibrant, artfully-designed Hotel Murano in Tacoma awakens weary travelers with soaring ceilings, bold colors, world-class glass art and modern furnishings. The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel is named for the famed Italian spot where some of the world’s best glass is created, the sleek lobby features stunning architecture, and the restaurant and guest rooms feel more like a contemporary art museum than a hotel. A 104-foot-tall exterior sculpture designed by Greek artist Costas Varotsos flanks the front door, and each of the 25 guest floors highlights a different artist, so every stay has a unique feel. Hand-blown glass lamps adorn every bedside of the spacious guest rooms, which feature bold patterned pillows, tufted headboards, iPod docks and large, marble-tiled bathrooms.
