Go to Paradise Inn for location in Mt. Rainier NP. Trails were wonderful with lots of wildflowers. Main lodge common area was good to just completely disconnect from cell phones and tv. Piano player in early evening was wonderful way to rewind and just play some cards and do a puzzle. Room was small with a double and twin bed for 3 of us and it was cramped but we expected that and only used it for sleeping and showers. Maids do a great job keeping older rooms and very busy common areas clean. Restaurant good but expensive. We had one dinner in restaurant and then cafe second night. Cafe is fine for quick meals and much less expensive breakfast than restaurant. We only had 2 nights there so we had buffet breakfast before our big hike day and it kept us going.
