Where to Stay in Tacoma

SD › Tacoma Hotels
Updated: November 25, 2021

All of these hotels are located in downtown Tacoma, close to many shops, bars, and restaurants, and within walking distance of the Tacoma Convention Center, Washington State History Museum, Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum, and Children’s Museum of Tacoma. The Tacoma Dome, America’s Car Museum, and the Tacoma waterfront are nearby, but will probably require a taxi or light rail for most people. Sea-Tac International Airport is 25 miles and a 30-minute drive (with light traffic) from downtown Tacoma.
