National Park Resort Returns with 'Best of Northwest' Travel Package

Published 08/30/2010

(Olympic National Park, Washington) – Back by popular demand is Aramark Parks and Destination’s “Best of the Northwest” package, which combines lodging at Lake Quinault Lodge, Kalaloch Lodge, Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort and Lake Crescent Lodge. Lake Crescent Lodge, which usually operates until October 23, will now remain open until October 31, allowing visitors more time to enjoy autumn and the stunning flora in the Pacific Northwest.

With four lodges conveniently located along Washington State Route 101, travelers can discover the Olympic Peninsula’s diverse ecosystems with the multi-night stay “Best of the Northwest” package.  Starting at $399 for three nights, visitors save an average of up to 35 percent and have the flexibility to add additional nights at $99 per night or upgrade rooms for $20 per night.

As part of the “Best of the Northwest” package, visitors will also receive a $40 resort credit per night, which can be used for dining options, including Lake Quinault’s renowned Roosevelt Room and Lake Crescent Lodge’s lakefront dining room, at the gift shops or for tours. The package is available for booking Sept. 13 through Oct. 31, with the exception of Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort, which closes for the season on October 23.

“People love traveling to the Olympic Peninsula, especially in the fall, when guests can enjoy the marvelous beauty of the dramatic, lush landscapes that come alive in autumn,” said Chris McKinney, director of sales and marketing at the Olympic Peninsula for ARAMARK Parks and Destinations. “Each lodge is has a unique personality and proximity to the rainforest, coastline and mountains, and we want to give visitors the flexibility to create their own adventure at a reasonable cost.”

Guided rainforest tours from Lake Quinault Lodge showcase the region’s most lush flora within the 250 miles of hiking trails in the Quinault Valley. “Twilight” lovers can see sites highlighted in the popular series near Kalaloch Lodge, along with seven unique beaches ideal for tide pooling, one of Bella’s favorite activities. Visitors can also experience distinct scenery of rainforest, waterfall, lake and/or mountain views from the various hiking trails near each location, allowing visitors to truly soak up the “Best of the Northwest.”

The “Best of the Northwest” package can be booked by calling (866) 297-7367. For more information on the package and all four properties, visit
