Paradise Inn, Mount Rainier National Park, USA
Built in 1916, the Paradise Inn has retained much of its rustic authenticity and provides a simple yet comfortable retreat in the heart of Mount Rainier National Park, where you'll find mile upon mile of hiking trails right on your doorstep.
Hotel facilities include a gift shop selling traditional Native American handicrafts, a post office, Tatoosh Café and a dining room commanding stunning views of Mount Rainier and serving classic American favourites.
There are 121 guest rooms, small by today's standards and without modern amenities such as TV, telephone and internet access, yet which are simple and charming, particular the original rooms in the main lodge which date back almost 100 years and offer shared toilets and showers.
Annexe rooms and suites however do have private bathrooms and are located behind the main lodge in a separate, four-storey building.
