PROPERTY: It's really convenient in location. The property is the starting point for several gorgeous trails. Alpine heaven. Lots of wildlife and when in bloom, wildflowers. Mount Rainier is up close and the views just can't get any better. We saw deer, marmots, assorted birds, chipmunks. Myrtle falls is very close. LOBBY: When you enter the lobby, you travel back...

The mountain - Rainier - is magical - and the Paradise Inn is as close as you can get to it. The lobby is charming with the original 1917 floors, enormous wooden beams and gorgeous stone fireplaces. Park rangers give talks there twice a day. The rooms are, uh, spare, which encourages you to get outside and hike, drive around... More

While the rooms certainly aren't the typical 5-star hotel room, I think the overall experience of staying in such a charming, historic hotel, amidst the meadows at Paradise, merits 5 stars. We stayed in the smallest room type (and it was tiny), a double without a bath. I am typically fussy about hotels but was perfectly happy with this. Surprisingly,... More

August 22. 2015. My son John and his new wife Jamie invited their wedding party to the Inn at Paradise. Mt Rainier. They were married at Box Canyon. From the time we entered the doors at the Inn, we were treated with such hospitality. The server Laura was a gracious host. She was patient with the kids. Kind to all.... More

We found the Paradise Inn rustic but comfortable. We had a room with queen bed and large private bathroom with tub. Saw the smaller rooms with shower and not as much room and probably would not have been as happy staying there. Cheaper rooms are available with shared baths and showers. Bed was very comfortable and we got a good... More

This lodge is approaching its 100th birthday. Many of the features show their age -- some to their advantage (mostly the public spaces) and some to their disadvantage (most of the guest rooms). The guest rooms are small and cramped in many cases. Most of them are in building called the Annex. Some are in the main building over the... More

Always wanted to stay in one of the National Park lodges, as we have always stayed outside park boundaries. This was our first experience in one, and we knew it would be basic as described on the website. We booked a double room with private bath, and shared with another couple we travelled with to share expenses. The staff were... More

Okay....try to book an annex room with a private bath on an upper floor. It will be quieter! Shared baths and showers are cheaper and clean. All rooms are basic and small or cozy accept for handicap rooms. Beds are super comfortable. Reception desk awesome...kudos to Barry and Thomas!! You are going for the wondrous views and hikes and marmots... More

Paradise Inn at Mt. Ranier is a typical, rustic National Parks lodge, which means it is situated to provide comfortable, convenient access to the natural beauty of the surroundings but does not provide such amenities as A/C, TV, radio, internet, or cell phone service. The Inn includes a large, well organized full service dining room and a snack shop for... More

This is a well known hotel in Mt. Rainier National Park. In our section, there were shared bathrooms and shared shower rooms for each sex...not unusual for NP hotels. The electricity went out in the afternoon and was not back on until sometime the next day, and: - There were no general announcements, oral or printed, given by staff to... More
