I have stayed at the Murano a number of times now. I have also stayed at number of other hotels in Tacoma. My Corporate office is located in Tacoma and travel there often. Based on my experience this is the best hotel in Tacoma. Why? Location, service, and comfortable rooms. If you are into museums, art and glass or the city of Murano this a must place to visit. OH, they have the fasted elevators I have aver been in. Even faster then some of the hotels in Las Vegas.
