Last morning in the mountains. Open up the patio door to soak up the fresh mountain air and sun. Off to a pancake breakfast. Lineup out the door...Pancake Pantry...the place to be! Walking through the Gatlinburg town reminded me of Bath...quaint and charming. Cobblestone ...
Happy 4th of July! Always seem to help the Americans celebrate their day! Off to ziplining through the Great Smoky Mountains. Beautiful views. Ziplining was a great experience! Met a guard chicken! Headed home for a nice simple dinner of grilled cheese sandwiches. Hit the spot! Spent the evening playing cards, competing against each other in the arcade, and soaking our aching bodies in the hot tub! What a great ...
... A for a restful holiday! Just heading off to the midnight July 4th parade. Interesting parade...lots of coin tossing onto the road - kids going nuts, empty schoolbus, lots of military, and...an 'interesting' ride home! Looking forward to another adventure ...
... last time was nice and I dropped Jodi off at a store to get souvenir sweatshirts. By time she was done shopping it was 10:30, meaning we should be home around 8:00 pm. Once we drove from Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge, the traffic karma would be against us. Traffic was extremely heavy and we literally missed being in an accident that would of caused serious injuries and damage to both parties. We were traveling about 45mph when a mini ...
... mission came up short. Before leaving Kaleb spent his vacation money on those old fashion photos. He really wanted to do this so bad. He was super excited and happy his photos came out good. Kylee stayed awake the entire time we were in town only falling asleep once we were in the car around 10:30 pm. That is a late night for our baby. We arrived back at the rental and started packing up to leave in the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPark Vista - DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel - Gatlinburg
Checking in was seamless and quick, the clerk was friendly and made me feel welcomed. The room was modern and had all the usual amenities minus a microwave in the room. I had a king sizes bed with a classic european bedding. A privacy balcony with the view of The Great Smoky Mountains and down Gatlinburg.

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Vista - DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel - Gatlinburg
A bit pricey
The view are the Park Vista was nice. The rooms were very plain and could use so work. Not the decor of a resort. A bit pricey for such a plain room. The pool area was very nice and clean.
A truly marvellous hotel with great views, nice ammenities, and great facilities. Let the traveller beware however, when placing any phone calls from this hotel. The phone states 79¢ surcharge for long distance phone calls. What the hotel leaves out however, is that their default carrier is brutally expensive. A 22 minute phone call became a $53.00 expense. I could have used my 79¢ a minute wireless phone and ended up with a bill that would be almost 75% less. The front desk was unappologetic and merely stated that the call depended on time and distance and carrier that I chose (of course leaving out their default carrier). A $53.00 phone bill for 22 minutes from Gatlinburg, TN to Chicago, IL at night (to boot) is a rip off. Other than that gripe, the Park Vista is a wonderful hotel.
We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel while visiting the Smoky Mountains
Nice views dated appearance
This hotel has mountain views to offer and being completely round, most rooms will have a nice one, however; that is about all it offers. It's too large to feel cozy and quaint, but not large enough or staffed to pull off a "resort" feel either. Being up on a bluff, there were no hiking trails or streams to enjoy, making it boring for the kids. The pool was indoors and had that humid, steamy, chlorine smell to it which wasn't appealing. The food was above average and consistantly enjoyable, we especially enjoyed the pot roast and mashed potatoes in the hotel restaurant. The breakfast buffet was well done as well.
Very nice indeed
A nice hotel with clean rooms, courteous staff, great views, lots to do at the hotel and a good restaurant. The only drawback is the distance from town, though the hotel is on the shuttle route large groups can form and you might have to wait for the next shuttle, whats really great is the close proximity to some very nice , not well known and not used much driving trails thru the Smokey Mountains Natl Park, would recommend it.
this hotel is big and it has a great view of the mountains. The pool area is huge and they have a game room and play center for the kids. This hotel is probably the best hotel in Gatlinburg. It is nice and clean.
We were absoultely impressed with this hotel. The lobby is very neat and clean in appearance. It also had a very nice dining area overlooking the mountains. The room was spacious. Some of the floors were being remodeled which made for noise during the day, and the road to the hotel was a tad difficult to find. Our daughter LOVED the indoor kiddie pool and they have a playground as well. It was a 5 STAR to us!!!
If you get offered the choice, ask for a room overlooking the town. If they don't offer, ask anyway - the views are outstanding. From the room we had during the day you can see right across the mountains, and at night you can see the whole town lit up. I could have spent hours just standing out on the balcony.
Great service and very friendly staff. The trolley service now stops outside the hotel every half hour, so the slightly out of the way location is not an issue - it runs until midnight and only costs 25 cents.
This hotel has breathtakingly beautiful views of the Great Smokey Mountains. The rooms are large, service is good and the price is very reasonable for this caliber hotel. Highly, highly recommended!!!
A full service hotel with an outstanding view of Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains. You want for nothing at the Park Vista, except proximity to downtown Gatlinburg. It's a bit off the beaten path and the access road to the hotel itself is a real transmission killer. Fortunately the hotel operates a guest shuttle every day on the half hour until 11 PM. Very nice indoor pool, nice outdoor picnic area as well.
