The room was very nice and clean, with a nice deep tub. Some of the rooms come with views of Gatlinburg. All the rooms have their own balcony. I ordered room service, a steak-and-potato dinner. It was cooked to perfection and presented nicely as well. I really enjoyed my evening. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel has 15 floors that are serviced by glass elevators. All rooms have a great view. The hotel is so high up that even the lower floors have a great view. It is a tall, round hotel with the entire center of the hotel designed to be a 15 story atrium. It is decorated with twinkling lights and is pretty at night. The rooms are an average size, clean and decorated like your average hotel. Most rooms, however, have a view of the mountains. We have stayed there several times and always been pleased.
My children love the pools. There are three seperate indoor pools that flow together. There is a deep pool with a diving board. It is about six feet higher than the regular pool. It is set up so that when people jump into the deep pool the overflow runs into the lower pool, making a waterfall that you can stand under. There is also a children's wading pool that flows into the the regular pool. It is a great place to relax and unwind at the end of a long day. The pool atrium also has a nice playroom for small children. There is a game room with video games, pool and air hockey for older children and adults. They also have an outdoor playground.
The hotel restaurant has a decent breakfast buffet. (That is the only time we ate there.) There is a ticket desk that has discounts for area attractions and they will also make reservations. They also have a coffee shop, a gift shop and several kiosks with candy, etc.

The hotel is located at the end of a steep road, about 500 feet over the main street. This road takes the guest to a fresh experience in Gatlinburg. It is quiet and beautiful. The hotel is a circular, 15-story building, so "every view has a room."
Our view was spectacular. Each room has a narrow balcony. We stood out one night and watched the full moon peek in and out of clouds, over the silhouette of mountain peaks.
The rooms are nice. We had a room with a king-size bed and fold-out couch. The room was large enough for us all to move comfortably about and not get in each others' way.
The indoor pool area is attractive and designed well. There is an upper level with a deep pool (5'-10') and Jacuzzi. The lower area has a 3'-5' pool, with a one-foot baby pool. Next to the pool is a game room with video games, and an activity room where younger children can play. There is also an outdoor playground.
The city trolley makes stops at the hotel every 30 minutes. It is very easy to get around without having to bother taking a car.
