My family is conflicted regarding the Alta Crystal. On the one hand, the location, just outside the NE entrance to Mt Rainier Natl park, right smack in the middle of a national forest, is completely beautiful. On the other hand, we found it a little presumptuous to call it a resort. True, there is a nice pool and hot tub....

This was our first time at Mt. Rainier and we could not have asked for a better home-base. The resort was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We stayed in a loft chalet which was the perfect fit for our family of 4 with 2 early teens. We made good use of the pool after a few daily hikes - perfect end...

I have stayed at the resort previously and had wanted to share this gorgeous place and a trip to Sunrise and Crystal Mountain with my son, daughter in law, and grandkids. Since my husband couldn't come this time, there was room for all of us in a chalet loft suite. A problem came up in that I have a Havanese...

Could not have been better, great weather, perfumed air, warm sunshine; the 'compact' loft suite was more than adequate for a clan of 6, little time was spent inside, however, having spacious grounds & surrounding to roam, the young ones (including a 75YO) thoroughly enjoyed the pool & hot tub, the BBQ was excellent, fellow guests were friendly & anxious...

Frankly when we first got there I was a little underwhelmed. This place was a lot more $$ than lodging at the southern part of Rainier and I was expecting a grander place when we checked in. Check in area is a desk in a corner of the "market". But don't let that stop you. This place delivered what it...

The coolest and most different resort that I have ever been too! I had reserved two of the bigger cabins which visit about five each. Each cabin was 2 stories with 3 beds and also a living room! The cabins were spacious and roomy with a lot of space to relax and have fun. The rooms were very clean and...

A friendly family run business that makes an effort to bring guests together with barbecues, s'mores and bonfires and guest orientation evenings. The resort has sports facilities aside from the pool and bikes such as table tennis, volleyball nets and frisbee golf practice. Facilities are not fancy but very nicely thought out and well maintained. We stayed 4 nights with...

My husband and I rode the gondola up and hiked down the Crystal Mountain Trail. It was wonderful! From the views to the beautiful wildflowers and lakes, it was a fantastic 5 mile hike! The $22 each for the gondola ride was worth every penny. We sat in the chairs at the top and took in the fantastic view of...

We spent three nights at Alta Crystal Resort in July 2016, along with our two grandchildren, ages 7 and 9. We appreciated the convenience of having a two bedroom, 2 bath cabin with a small eat-in kitchen, living room, and seating on the porch--lots of room to spread out and relax! We cooked our own breakfast each morning, then headed...

We spent 2 nights here and would have loved to stay longer. The rooms were very comfortable and the people in the office were very helpful with area activities. They had a scavenger hunt for the kids around the property and it was so beautiful and great fun for the kids.

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
