Between its vibrant downtown area and its beautiful waterfront, Tacoma has plenty of perfect spots for luxe hotels. Here are our picks for the best places to stay in Tacoma:
1. Hotel Murano. This sleek, contemporary boutique hotel features a three-story, skylit lobby decorated with works of art by acclaimed glass artists from around the globe, including world-renowned Tacoma native Dale Chihuly. The stylish rooms feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and beds swathed in luxury linens. On the fourth floor is BITE, an airy, modern restaurant where you can enjoy seasonal cuisine against a backdrop of eye-catching art.
2. Thornewood Castle. A stay at Thornewood Castle — a 500-year-old Tudor Gothic historic site located on American Lake — may feel like you’re at a grand manor somewhere in Europe. Lavishly appointed guest rooms and suites feature special touches such as 16th-century stained glass, dark wood canopy beds, soaking tubs and electric fireplaces. Wander the expansive gardens at the property and soak in its history — U.S. Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft stayed here.
