Sky-lit ceilings, bright pops of neon, and a gallery-worthy collection of glass-blown art greet guests at the 4-star Hotel Murano in Tacoma. Many visitors to the area find themselves down the street at the Tacoma Art Museum or the Museum of Glass, but the hotel itself is a world-class treasury of modern art.
Pass by a 75-foot-tall glass sculpture and beneath a Venetian chandelier and a trio of colored glass Viking boats suspended in the lobby to get to guest room floors, each of which are illuminated by the works of 45 celebrated artists, such as Tacoma native Dale Chihuly. Guests can wander the collection on their own or arrange for a docent-led tour to see them all.
Guest rooms are more subdued with crisp white bedding and only touches of color, plus extra perks like curated Spotify playlists and an assorted pillow menu. Doggies get pampered too, with toys and treats, pet room service and grooming, and tips on the best pet-friendly hikes -- the striking snow-capped peak of Mount Rainier is an hour away.
Northwest cuisine delivers at BITE, the hotel restaurant that serves up three meals a day plus small bites and cocktails. There’s a full-service spa and salon on site, and Tacoma’s downtown area along the waterfront is a five-minute walk away. The neighborhood is on the quiet side, a 40-minute drive from downtown Seattle. Chambers Bay Golf Course, home of the 2015 U.S. Open, is 20 minutes west.
