After traveling most of the day we were happy to arrive at the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotel is in the middle of town and there is a parking lot for the hotel guests. There is also underground parking which is where we parked. Check in was quick and while checking in I asked what we could do for a few hours. The gal told us the Washington State Fair was going on and it was just down the road. Wow, that was a perfect suggestion for us! We went to our room to drop off the luggage and when we walked in the room was quite large and the bathroom was a perfect size too. We headed to fair and really had a nice time. Quite different than what we are used to in our home town.
We had a good nights sleep in the comfy bed after the evening at the fair. In the morning we went down stairs to enjoy breakfast before heading out for our day of hiking at Mt Rainier NP. Breakfast is not included in the price of your room and is extra. ( I really enjoy hotels that include the breakfast in your stay. ) A cook will make your eggs any way you like them cooked too. There was also a large selection of breakfast items you can pick from on the buffet. Before we left from our breakfast , I asked our waitress about where we could pick up a couple of sandwhiches for the day as we were planning on hiking. She told us of a market up the road but asked if we would like the chef to make some fresh turkey sandwhiches to go. We told her that would be wonderful and he made them just the way we liked at a very reasonably price.
