My name is Laura Hanan and I am an artist and I live and work in my family's 100-year-old historic building with my husband Marty, who is also an artist. Ron Patterson one of our returning guests (& his wife Charnley) generously married us in 2009!
My family completely renovated our mixed-use building and built two beautiful identical high-end condos featuring custom cherry wood cabinetry, original brick walls, and refinished 100-year-old Doug Fir wood floors. Our original art is throughout the building and we have our studios and a frame shop located in the basement.
We welcome our guests to tour our sometimes messy studios. We also invite visitors to play in our studios and create some art of their own with our help if they want.
Laura Hanan purchased this condo in 2000
We found this beautiful old building - a dusty gem - in the heart of downtown Tacoma - the Theater District. We saw the raw potential of the area and since purchasing and remodeling our building we are in the center of a lovely new restaurant row, which proudly includes our own bar and grill, 'The Office', downstairs in our building. We are honored that our building is also on the local register of historic buildings.
A new Pacific Northwest heavy-hitter anchor tenant, McMenamins is being built less than two blocks away from our building and will feature a music venue, theatrical events, and a brew pub in the grand old historic Elks Building.
We love to pamper our guests with condos that are furnished tastefully and include all original artwork. A complimentary bottle of wine, chocolates, and pound of fresh coffee, await our visitors. We live on site and are available to help out with restaurant suggestions and information about the wonderful local events and places to visit.
"Stayed at this apartment for 2 1/2 months and loved it. The place is completely furnished with everything you need. There was even a spray bottle of starch for pressing my shirts. The location downtown is great with multiple restaurants located in walking distance and easy access on and off Hwy 705. The bed and linen were amazing to come home to as well. I would highly recommend this to any one looking to stay in the downtown Tacoma Area."
We were so pleased that we selected this loft for our visit and family reunion in late August. We found the place to be exactly as detailed and pictured. Laura was a great host and we truly enjoyed her company as well. We had our prized kitty with us and she too enjoyed the stay. There is no question that we will stay again on our next trip to Tacoma; next time will be for a longer stay as well. When you stay, really, spend a few moments and examine the craftsmanship and detail of the woodwork and the finishes. They put quality work in so you can feel comfortable in your surroundings.
This apartment/Condo was a perfect match for us. The place is gorgeous with exposed brick and hardwood floors. Downtown Tacoma was a great location for us. Laura is very accommodating and we felt very much at home. we plan to return next year and give it our highest recommendation
We stayed at this condo for the month of July 2014. We found it absolutely delightful. Our first urban experience. We loved being downtown steps away from great restaurants, museums, farmer's market and interesting walks.
The condo is spacious, comfortable and fully furnished. One only need bring their own clothes and food. Very secure building with a keyed street entrance and a keyed condo door.
Last summer we thoroughly enjoyed a month at this beautiful, spacious, unique condo which has fabulous art work and all the amenities we needed. We were so impressed by the gracious, available owner, gorgeous well-equipped condo, access to fabulous museums, pubs, restaurants, and only a five minute ride to Ruston Way on Commencement Bay, that we decided to stay for two months in 2014. We enjoyed every day of our stay, and we hope to add a third month to our stay in 2015.
This June & July afforded perfect summer weather. We walked along Pacific Avenue daily, went to the Glass Museum and Art Museum, favorite pubs and restaurants, and took advantage of the Tacoma Library on Tacoma Ave, and the Thursday outdoor Market just a few blocks away. We frequented "The Office", a pub on the first floor of this building. The owner is charming, the staff is friendly, and the food and drinks are reasonable and satisfying. Our other routine was to take a five minute drive to Ruston Way along Commencement Bay which offers great views and a wide choice of restaurants. A caring, available owner, fabulous space, friendly, diverse city, and perfect summer weather is hard to beat.
My husband and I just had a wonderful stay in one of Laura's condos. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. Great location, vibrant local neighborhoods and very comfortable accommodations with attentive owner management!
I absolutely loved staying in this condo. I travel often for work and usually need comfortable, fully-furnished housing for medium-term lengths of time. (1-2 months) This unit was the nicest I have ever found, and the monthly rates are a fantastic deal. The host was wonderful and has created a space far above and beyond a typical corporate housing option. This is a great location downtown, but with easy access in and out of the city as well. I can't imagine any suite in a downtown hotel could compare to this apartment. After a 12-hour travel day to get to Tacoma, a bottle of my favorite wine chilled and waiting on me was a lovely touch. Cheers to Laura for such a great experience.
