Guest review:This loft is a special sparkling gem in downtown Tacoma. You would be remiss to not stay in Gloria’s classy, yet cozy home. I loved the exposed brick wall, such a neat old-fashioned almost East Coast feel. There is a real established comfort here… Also an edgy feel because of the urban location. I think we like the open floor plan the best… Literally… The bedroom leads into the kitchen which runs into the living room… Only the bathroom is completely enclosed by a door. And I totally loved this! I love to be submerged in hot water so the tub was my favorite thing. Tacoma is a unique location in Washington to spend your time… And when you do, you should check out Gloria’s loft!” – Kelly

We needed a mini break, from being locked in the house. This was the perfect place. The kids got to swim (no pools open at home). The view is outstanding. I enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening watching the sunset. The place was super clean, and lots of extras, I even packed way more than I needed as it was all there. Nancy was a fantastic host, and would reach out to me to see if I wanted the hot tub heated. We will be back.” – Rachel
