I happened to stay at this hotel during the USA PGA Opening and I just couldn't get an hotel close enough to my intended destination.

I usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express three miles South on my way to Portland but for this trip, I had business in Tacoma and switched for both convenience (it was closer) and just to try a new property.

The staff at this hotel is very helpful, especially Priscilla at the front desk. The room was large and comfortable. It was extremely clean. The wi-fi was excellent. The hotel was very quiet. The morning breakfast was very good. I had a corner suite on the second floor that overlooked a small lake. I highly recommend this hotel.
