Booked this as wanted to stay close to Mt. Rainier to access Sunrise so only one night stay. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable on the ground floor. One bedroom, a sitting area and kitchen area. There is no air conditioning but we managed okay without it. There is a shop in reception where you can buy all sorts of... More

Very relaxed hotel- quiet setting, no one around except for the others staying there. They do a good job of making sure you have what you need during check in. The rooms are very nice- I expected something cheap looking like a Motel 6, but they are furnished and decorated even better than I would have thought. All of the... More

When we began our search for lodging near the Sunrise side of Mt. Ranier, we were a bit surprised at the lack of options. Alta Crystal Mountain proved to be a good choice for us, however. We had the Loft Chalet Suite and were surprised by how steep the stairs (really a ladder) were. We had planned to put our... More

We only stayed one night here, but could have stayed longer. It was the best part of our Seattle vacation! We stayed in a one bedroom with loft room, which had 3 beds and 2 bathrooms. Also 2 TV's with dvd players. The room was great. Clean, neat, just like home. The rooms do not have AC, but even on... More

I don't camp! My husband likes to walk mountain trails and look at rocks and flora and fauna. This year he decided Mt Rainier Sunrise entrance was our location. So I started looking for places to stay and found Alta Crystal. It was pricey, we had to prepay and even though they strongly suggested trip insurance, I got busy and... More

This is rated #1 for "Greenwater", but it is probably the best place anywhere close to the National Park. It is not perfect, but it is as good as it gets. We stayed in the Honeymoon cabin, which was nice because it was raining and we were able to just stay there and eat in the cabin and not have... More

Every hotel is unique given its surroundings. I stayed at the Four Seasons downtown but this is where you come to experience natural beauty. I really liked the Lodge for its updated amneties and the rooms are suites complete with kitchen area (complete with dish soap to clean all of the dishes they provide if you cook a full meal)...

We recently stayed in the honeymoon cabin at Crystal Alta Resort. It exceeded expectations. We were surprised with champagne. Cabin had everything plus. Loft bedroom was a delight with its own porch. Amenities were great including store, bar- b- que, pool, hot tub, lounge area. Lots also to do in area even in rain!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The perfect getaway for Crystal Mountain & Mt. Rainier National Park. Charming chalet suites & a romantic honeymoon log cabin are tucked in the national forest, just 1 mile outside the northeast entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park & 7 miles from Crystal Mountain and its new Mt. Rainier Gondola. Soak in our hot tub and swim in our year-round heated pool (heated to 90° in the winter) -- we're Crystal and Mt. Rainier's only accommodations with both. Fireplaces, small fully equipped kitchens and renovated mountain lodge style accommodations are perfect for couples and families. Guests love our evening activities such as bonfires, movie nights, karaoke, crafts parties, and summer barbecues. Ski, snowshoe and play in the snow in the winter. Hike, sightsee, bike, horseback ride, relax in the summer. Open year-round. ... more   less
