My home away from home whenever I find myself in Tacoma, Washington, on business seems to be the Hotel Murano; my June 2017 stay is the fifth or sixth time I've been there. It's a really nice place and right in the heart of Tacoma's great little downtown. Being in Tacoma, a town that loves glass art, the hotel has dedicated each floor to a particular piece of world-class glass art. Each piece is found beside the elevator, and then photos, sketches, notes, drafts, are displayed in the hallways and rooms. Fun!
Nice person in Portland, Oregon, and beyond.
