Every time I visit Alta Crystal, I promise myself I will write a review. It is my favorite hotel for experiencing the fabulous Mount Rainier and surrounding areas. Alta Crystal is a wonderful place for relaxing and an excellent base for exploring. This time, due to the Federal Government shutdown, we discovered great hiking and places to explore outside the park, with the help of the friendly and knowledgeable owners of the resort. They do a great job making sure that their guests are comfortable, and work hard to anticipate everything their guest could possibly need. We've stayed in both the single bedroom apartments and the loft suites. All have fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens, and are very clean and beautifully decorated. I heartily recommend Alta Crystal!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
