Tacoma, Wash.: Mermaid Room, Tacoma Hotel.
A post-1905 postcard of "Mermaid Room, Tacoma Hotel. Standing on a bluff above the water-front, and overlooking the beautiful bay and picturesque mountains, is the handsome Tacoma Hotel. One of its many attractive features is the lobby, treated entirely from a marine standpoint. The heavy pillars are surmounted by caps adorned with figures of mermaids, owing to which it has been called the 'Mermaids' Room' and from this fact also the hotel derives the name 'Mermaids' Inn."
