When you stay at McMenamins Elk Temple, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Tacoma Dome and Emerald Queen Casino. You can relax with a drink at one of the 5 bars/lounges, and the restaurant is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat. Also, Tacoma Mall and Port of Tacoma are within a short drive. The helpful staff and restaurant get good marks from fellow travelers. Public transportation is just a short walk: Theater District Station is 3 minutes and Commerce Street Station is 8 minutes.
