Although I'd like to write a great review, we actually did not get to enjoy the hotel at all. See we booked our room probably a month or two prior and did not expect our 9month old to be in the hospital. My husband called a day before our expected arrival and said we could not come due to an emergency and basically got an I'm sorry that's your own fault and we will not give your money back. I work for a big hotel chain so I know that there was something that could've been done. Could you have TRIED to sell the room? Yes, I'm pretty sure they're lots of people wanting to make last minute ski trips. The lack of attempt or care is why I rated this hotel low. Paid over $500 for a room we could not enjoy. Ended up giving it away to someone who could only go for a night. I will not be staying there ever and will rent a cabin instead.

- The perfect getaway for Mt. Rainier National Park and Crystal Mountain. 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 (weekends, holidays and summers) such as bonfires, movie nights, karaoke, crafts parties, and summer barbecues. Hike, sightsee, bike, ride horses, play disc golf in the summer. Ski, snowshoe and play in the snow in the winter. Open year-round. ... more less
