For well over a year, we did not travel due to risk from COVID-19. This week, after we had been fully vaccinated, we used IHG Rewards points to stay in Tacoma, close to jury selection buildings. Staff at this hotel were friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
Our eighth-floor suite had multiple benefits. The bathroom and furniture appeared to be fairly recently updated. A large TV was in good working order.
The view from our room was interesting: Mt. Rainier beyond the Tacoma Dome roof, train yard, and The Harmon Building, where we at one night. At sunset, the buildings and mountains stand out.
Management made cleaning and services changes to keep its guests safer; we welcomed their ideas (e.g., five-or-six item bag of to-go breakfast foods; no decorative pillows, no small bottles in the bathroom, no air circulation in bathroom; no pen or paper; and no pool). Room cleaning was by request.
Only a few things in the room were uncomfortable. The sofa cushions and mattress were somewhat rigid, and the wall HVAC unit could be loud. Overall, though, the hotel met our needs and made us feel safe as we stayed there.
