My husband and I stayed at the Edgewater on Thursday, August 30 and Friday, August 31,2012 for our 23rd anniversary.
The Edgewater is located in a fantastic location. On a back street away from all of the noise but within walking distance to everything. The national park entrance is close too.
There are several great restaurants within a 5 minute walk: Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Dick's Last Resort, Five Guys, and Hard Rock Cafe, just to name a few.
We had a king-size room facing the river and enjoyed watching the ducks and fishermen. The view of the mountains was great,as was the view of the Spaceneedle at night. The only complaint I would have about the room would be that there was only one "comfy" chair in the room (it was a fully upholstered chair with ottoman. There was another chair at the desk but it was not comfortable). There were plenty of towels and washclothes provided without us requesting them. The fridge was very useful. There was also a microwave and coffee maker also. Room and bath were very clean and modern. Flat screen TV was nice.
We are thinking about taking our children (ages 20 and 14) to Gatlinburg for their birhdays and will be staying here again.
They offer a frequent guest program where you stay with them 5 times and recieve a free night. We forgot to sign up for this when we checked out.
