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

One of the best parts about staying at our downtown Gatlinburg hotel with you family is that you’ll be near all of the action! Our hotel is footsteps away from exciting things to do, like Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Spend the day seeing and interacting with your favorite aquatic animals, like sharks, jellyfish, and even a green sea turtle! You can also walk to the Gatlinburg Sky Lift, which offers the most incredible views of downtown Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. If you don’t want to walk, we have a trolley stop right outside our front door! Hop on the Gatlinburg Trolley and let it take you to where you want to go while avoiding parking costs downtown.

3. Amenities

We also have a number of great amenities that families love. We have both an indoor and outdoor pool so you can splash around all throughout the year! There is even a Kiddie Pool just for the little ones to enjoy that’s the center of all the fun. After your swim, take advantage of our Poolside Cafe for breakfast, lunch, or just a snack! Our cafe has sandwiches that are perfect for a family picnic in the park. We also have private picnic areas located by the mountain stream of our hotel. Families love all the great amenities our hotel has to offer.

4. Pet Friendly
