When you’re deciding where to stay on vacation, location is an important factor. You want to be close to all the fun things you want to do, but you don’t want to be around the busiest part of town either. Our downtown Gatlinburg hotel is in a great location. Check out these 6 perks of the location of our downtown Gatlinburg hotel:

1. Within Walking Distance of Attractions

The very popular Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in downtown Gatlinburg TN.

Since our hotel is so close to the Gatlinburg Strip, you won’t have to get in your car and drive. You can just walk to downtown Gatlinburg and save yourself some gas. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to walk the length of the Strip, so whether you want to ride the Gatlinburg SkyLift or you want to see the animals at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, you will be there in no time. You can also easily walk to any restaurant in downtown Gatlinburg, whether you want to taste the homemade candy from Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen to having a nice meal at The Peddler.

2. Trolley Stop Out Front

A cheap way to explore the surrounding cities is to take the Gatlinburg Trolley. Our downtown Gatlinburg hotel has a trolley stop right out front. All you have to do is wait for the trolley to stop, and you can get on and go to another part of the city. Each trolley destination has a different cost, but you can always purchase an unlimited ride wristband. The trolley could take you to the arts and crafts community, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville.

3. Minutes from Pigeon Forge

You’ll love being so close to this town, where there are a ton of fun things to do, restaurants you’ll want to try, and plenty of shopping opportunities.

4. Minutes from the National Park

People also love our downtown Gatlinburg hotel’s location because we are only a few minutes away from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you want to go on a picnic, you’re just a short car ride away from several picnic areas. It’ll only take a short drive to get to Cades Cove or you can just take a relaxing drive through the Smokies. Hiking is another popular activity in the national park, and after a long day, you’ll be glad to have a short drive back to our hotel.

5. Away from the Parkway
