We stayed here for one night as part of our 25th anniversary 'road trip', and the hotel, location and staff is excellent!
Being our anniversary, they upgraded us to a Jr suite on the top floor of the river side, with a balcony overlooking the river and mountains. This was probably our favorite hotel of the entire trip, which included 7 hotels in 8 nights.
They had a very nice indoor pool, and the hot tub was just outside within full view of the pool, in case the adults wanted to bask in the hot tub while the kids were in the pool, They also had a 'firepit' near the hot tub, making for a very nice outdoor evening under the stars in Gatlinburg.
I read reviews about having to go thru the garage to get to the main street, which is probably quicker, and not difficult or dangerous in any way, but you can also just walk out the front of the hotel and turn left or right and walk along the river and take the first street you come to in either direction to get back to the main drag. We preferred this way, as it was far more pleasant and scenic, and only took an extra couple minutes.
The location off the main street was great, as there was much construction on the main street, so being off the main street on our serene riverside location was that much nicer. This is a great hotel and location, with friendly, attentive staff is has to be among the best choices in Gatlinburg.
