The Edgewater Hotel

(Alpha Outpost – RO1)

    We are conveniently located in the center of downtown that is walking distance to lots of shopping and attractions. The Gatlinburg Convention Center is only a short stroll and one block from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We house 205 spacious rooms all with its own private balcony and breathtaking mountain views. Whether you settle in on the mountainside or riverside of the property, you can be assured your stay will be pleasant and enjoyable. Some specialty rooms showcase Jacuzzis and fireplaces while all the rooms offer private balconies, micro-fridge units, coffeemakers, hairdryers, irons/ironing boards and a writing desk for your convenience. Not to mention complimentary WIFI throughout the entire hotel. Amenities include a heated indoor/outdoor pool open year round with two Jacuzzi’s as well as an exercise area. For your evening enjoyment we have just added a fire pit surrounded by rocking chairs under a covered pergola.

Edgewater Hotel Smoking Policy:

     The Edgewater Hotel is proudly a NON_SMOKING HOTEL. At no time is smoking permitted on the grounds of the property. Should evidence suggest that this policy has been ignored or the results of smoking in any sleeping room, balcony or common area be identifiable, a penalty of up to $200.00 will be assessed to the bill without exception.

Edgewater Hotel Parking Policy:

     Please fill out the below Special Parking Request form, if you will be arriving by bus/motor coach or any vehicle that will not clear our 6ft 6 inch garage clearance. Although the hotel does offer off-site parking, we need to know in advance if there are any oversize vehicles, and if so how many. What we need to know is if it will not fit as it says under a 6″6″ garage clearance or is an extra long vehicle so we can accommodate you in a parking lot across the street at no charge.
