Want to get away for spring break or get out since the weather is warming up? You should plan a spring trip to our downtown Gatlinburg hotel! We have several amenities you can enjoy during this time of year, and there are plenty of fun things to do in the area! Look at these 5 reasons to plan a spring trip to our downtown Gatlinburg hotel:

1. Great Savings

When you stay with us, you have plenty of opportunities to save money! We run a ton of specials throughout the year. You can save a percentage on your vacation, or stay so many nights and get the next night free. Some other ways you can save include using the trolley instead of driving, taking advantage of hotel amenities instead of spending money on expensive attractions, and bringing your pet with you instead of boarding them.

2. Play in the Pool

We have an indoor and an outdoor pool at our downtown Gatlinburg hotel. If it’s still a little chilly, you can enjoy a dip in the indoor pool. If the weather is warm enough in the spring, you can swim in the outdoor pool! Either way, you’ll love relaxing by the pool and grabbing a snack from our Poolside Cafe during your spring trip.

3. Have a Picnic

Our hotel has several picnic areas outside. Since the weather is warming up, you’ll want to spend as much time outside as possible. There’s nothing better than grabbing a family meal from one of the local restaurants in the area and bringing it back to enjoy an outdoor picnic. Our picnic area is next to the creek that runs alongside the hotel, so you can enjoy a beautiful view, splash in the creek, or just enjoy being outside.

4. Sit on the Balcony

Speaking of spending time outside, if you book a balcony room, you can hang out there! Look down at the river, listen to the water rush by, and let the sun shine on you. There’s nothing better than spending some time outside in the spring after staying indoors all winter. Our downtown Gatlinburg hotel is a great place to relax in the spring.

5. Enjoy Outdoor Attractions

Another perk of coming during spring is to enjoy outdoor attractions. There’s nothing more beautiful than driving or hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You could see wildflowers, wildlife, and so much more. Plus, you’ll love walking around downtown Gatlinburg in the nice weather. And after a long day of being outside, you get to come back to our cozy hotel rooms and rest for the next day of fun!

These are just a few reasons to plan a spring trip to our hotel. Ready to start planning? Look through the hotel rooms at our downtown Gatlinburg hotel and book one today!
