Along with having comfy rooms and great amenities, the location is another great feature of our downtown Gatlinburg hotel. We are in the middle of all the action. This makes it easy to enjoy all the fun attractions. For example, animal lovers can get up close and personal with marine life at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Be sure to check out the Penguin Playhouse, one of the best penguin exhibits in the world! Other things to do here include riding the Glass Bottom Boat, where you are separated from an ecosystem of over 8,500 aquatic animals by only 3 inches of glass. Along with its fun attractions, Gatlinburg is also home to a variety of delicious restaurants and gift shops with fun souvenirs.
