Welcome to Hotel Murano, a boutique downtown Tacoma hotel located a block away from the Tacoma Convention Center and steps from the city’s best museums and restaurants.  Tacoma is the epicenter of the American glass art movement, and, honoring that heritage, Hotel Murano pairs luxurious guestrooms and well-appointed event space with a museum-worthy collection of glass art from around the globe.

The hotel offers delicious cuisine at Bite (4th floor) which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Craft cocktails and small plates are the highlights at the Lobby Bar.  Hotel Murano guests will receive complimentary wireless internet connections in guest rooms, access to the hotel’s 24-hour on-site fitness center, and a 10% discount on services offered at the SAVI Day Spa (on-site).

A block of sleeping rooms has been reserved for NAEP attendees at the conference rate of $189 single/double per night plus applicable state and local taxes (currently 13.5% plus a $1.50/day Pierce County Tourism Assessment).

Reservations by attendees must be received on or before Thursday, February 15, 2018.  NAEP expects that the block will fill prior to the cut-off date, so please reserve your sleeping rooms as early as possible.  Once the block is full (which could be BEFORE February 15), reservation requests will be accepted at the hotel’s prevailing rates based on availability.

 All reservations must be accompanied by a major credit card as a guarantee.
