We had a great trip. We stayed at The Edgewater again. We stayed last April too. The hotel has made many improvements.
He is a list I noticed
new carpet, painting, crown molding, granite sinks and new toliets. Curved shower curtains and new shower curtains.New towels and sheets. The new beds were great! I slept like a baby. 4 pillows on the beds, and new fridges and now they have microwaves also. Rooms are brand new and clean!Room 639 front side of hotel overlooking the river and city view of Gatlinburg.
Some things stay the same. Parking is awful there. You are lucky to be able to get out of your car there. I saw people climbing thru the trunks of their mini vans just to get out.
Staff is not very friendly. They did not honor my husband request for a smoking room. They fine you $200 if you smoke in the rooms or balconies.
Staff did not ask how our stay was or say come back nothing. Look at me like I was crazy when i checked out and wanted a receipt.
Breakfast still has a huge variety pancakes, waffles, boiled eggs, cottage cheese, fruit , toast , bagels, mini muffins, pastries, oatmeal, 3 different types of cold cereal, milk, coffee, and orange juice.
Pool still need redone. I am not sure they if they are or not but, it could use it. It is old but, kept up. Pool towels provided. My kids love the waterfall and loved that they can swim to the outside from the inside pool area.
We would stay again as long as they do not increase their prices to much. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
