We stayed at Paradise Inn while visiting Mt. Rainier National Park and it was Paradise indeed. This historic landmark lodge with its massive beams, wildflower light shades, historic furniture and fabulous location made our trip special. First, when all the day trippers go home, those staying at the Lodge have the park to themselves and it is worth staying here just for that. We entered the historic lobby with live piano music playing, the cute gift shop, the Tatoosh Cafe (for a quick breakfast), and the Mail Bear post office drop (adorable) and felt at home. After delicious dinners in the dining room we rented playing cards and games and enjoyed our evenings in the lobby. We stayed in the renovated Annex and had a private bath and view of the forest. The room was small but so what. With all this charm who needs wifi? If you want the real Mt. Rainier experience then stay at Paradise Inn. The visitor center and the trail head to the Skyline Trail are right behind the Lodge.

Location is superb with access to trails for all skill levels from the parking lot. Common areas are rustic and well done. Very comfortable. Good food in the restaurant and limited selection of fine meals. Rooms are very small and not comfortable. Common baths and restrooms need more frequent attention. Staff not very helpful as all are new. I expect more from our national parks. Not cheap at all

We stayed at the recently renovated Annex part of this historic Inn and the rooms were really nice. Comfortable bed, decently sized room and a large private bath. Plus, having that connecting hallway to the lobby area of the main inn was convenient. However, I didn't really like the inconsistency of the water temp for the faucet of our bathroom. It was hard to get warm water coming out because the water pressure of both hot and cold was not very good. I turned on the cold and it was cold, and if I turned on the hot, the water gets super hot. Also, it kind of sucks that there was no wifi offered to the guests, and being inside the national park, cell service is non-existent, so it was super hard to communicate with the rest of our group, who were staying three floors above us. It would be nice to see the inn offer like in-room phone to at least have the capability of calling your party that was staying in another room, or offer guest-only wifi, so that guests can better communicate and coordinate with the rest of their party while staying here at Paradise.There is a restaurant and cafe on site. Restaurant serves good food, but kind of overpriced. Sunday brunch was worth it though. It was still a nice place to stay at and for those who wanted to spend at least a couple of days in the park, it is super convenient and the accommodation was worth it.

Be sure to turn in at the entrance to the Visitor's Center and look to the right for the Paradise Inn. The lobby has the big logs with fireplaces at either end with loads of couches and tables. We enjoyed a ranger talk in the late evening. Our room was in the annex. The annex remodel was finished in March 2019, so everything was so fresh. The only problem was the paper thin walls.

The public spaces in this historic property are beautiful. It was very comfortable to sit in the lobby area (fireplaces at both ends with loads of seating) or on the mezzanine (tables with seating provide a special place to enjoy a glass of wine or snack). Our room was very, very small. Twin beds and really no place to put the luggage. From talking with other guests, seems all the rooms had the same issues whether you went for a queen or twin beds. Would strongly suggest if you can safely store your luggage out of sight in your vehicle to leave it there and only bring in an overnight case. Other than the space constrictions, our room was quite comfortable. Renovations had just been completed in the spring, so it was all in perfect condition. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large enough. Only complaint with the bathroom was that there was barely any space to put one's personal things. There was a small shelf over the sink, but that was pretty much filled with the toiletries the inn provides. They should add a shelf over the toilet (where there is room). You couldn't ask for a better location - step outside and there was Mt. Rainier, a Park Visitor Center within a short walk, and plenty of trails right from the property.
