We booked this hotel bc it is where we were holding my daughters wedding reception. We stayed 5 days. Around 35 family members also stayed here. Not one glitch or bump in the road. The pool was great for the kiddos to enjoy. The outside fire pits were awesome for evening gatherings to catch up with our family. The trolley into Gatlinburg picked us up right outside the front doors. Beautiful hotel with spectacular views. Service and food was impeccable. If I could give ten stars I would.

Beautiful hotel, but this review is mixed for several reasons. Admittedly, we were there during spring break, and the hotel was pretty full, but here they are: (1) They don't have enough staff on duty at the front desk. You can ring and ring and ring and the phone will never be answered. I called before going to get some questions answered, and I later called from my room. It takes several attempts to get an answer. Also, the check-in line/help line at the front desk is often very, very lon... Read more

The hotel has nice grounds. It reminds me of an older Hampton that needs updated. I can deal with the condition for the price and the fact it is not downtown. The issue I have is with the lack of service in general from the hotel counter to the bar. I have had better service at Quality Inns.

We stayed for two nights and chose the "bed and breakfast" option. OVERALL: I feel like this hotel has elements that are nice and updated but overall is outdated and a little grimy. FOOD: The breakfast buffet was edible but really not fabulous (I wouldn't have returned if we did not already pay for it!). We ordered a pizza for dinner and I had trouble distinguishing the crust from the cardboard box. ROOM: Each room offers a private balcony but it was very narrow and there was no furniture s...

We were upgraded to a room on the 9th floor overlooking the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. It was a truly beautiful view.

Beautiful, quiet hotel with gorgeous mountain views a little removed from the touristy part of Gatlinburg but easily accesible as the trolley stops right out front. Great indoor pool with super slides. Delicious buffet breakfast with made-to-order omelets and waffles, fresh fruit, biscuits, gravy, sausage, bacon and more. Very comfy beds and scrupulously clean room. Nice bar with fire pit on patio.

Came to Gatlinburg for the synchronous fireflies... fabulous experience! Impressed with the hotel, great service, good food (great breakfast buffet), delightful to see how much fun the kids were having in the indoor pool with all the slides, hot tubs, etc. Hotel is a bit worn, needs a little sprucing up. The inside of the hotel is drab and has a sort of 'prison' vibe with the holes in the interior walls where they lifted the pre-cast panels into place. And don't be fooled by the 'mountain vi...

The hotel is older, yet had been recently updated in some areas. Rooms were nice and clean- 2 king beds, which was great!!! Air conditioner is very loud in room.

This hotel is our favorite place to stay for our annual trip to the Great Smokey Mountains. The restaurant is great, staff is very friendly and accommodating, my children love the heated indoor pool and waterslides on a cold snowy day and upon checking in the fresh baked cookies are tasty. It's very clean and has gorgeous views of the mountains and city. We are always treated like family by the staff and never want to leave. ??????????

This is an OK hotel with a potential to be much better. The check-in was slow and inefficient. We were given no choice of rooms. This is important because the view from the hotel is wonderful. Recommend 4th floor or higher. The hotel is away from the main drag which is nice because there were hoards of people in town.

Honestly it's not the most beautiful Hilton I have stayed at but it is clean, good amount of amenities, friendly staff, good food. Every room has a breath taking view. A bit away from the hustle and bustle which is nice so you can enjoy the views. It's less then 10 minutes from downtown and you are in the outskirts of the national park.

The hotel is built in a huge circle which was beat, and it the interior was open to the ceiling. The bar was nicely stocked and the meeting rooms were adequate.

We stay at lot of Hampton Inns and Hiltons in general. This hotel is in a great spot at the top of a hill overlooking Gatlinburg. We arrived around 11 pm. Upon arrival it took around 5-10 minutes of waiting for someone to help us check in. After checking in, we went up to our room, only to have the room key not work. This wouldn't be a big deal at 4pm, but at 11, after a long drive, with 2 young kids, it was a huge deal. They ended up giving us a different room and because of that connecting to ... Read more

Hotel was pleasant but rooms need updated, carpet was old and worn. In room dining was terrible. Took forever to get the food and it was nasty. I would stay here again but don't order room service. Mountain Views from the room were awesome but no chairs on the balcony to sit in was odd. Hotel sits atop a hill and it has a super steep driveway pretty much impossible to bike up and will destroy your legs to walk up. You have to drive in or out or take the trolley that stops at the hotel

I booked this hotel through Expedia. We had a room only on the first floor overlooking the roof of the pool :( The bathroom is odd shaped with the sink being outside in a separate kind of nook ... The room was big enough for us. The floors going to the pool were not very clean and didn't get cleaned overnight either :( We booked the hotel because of the pool with a slide.

Great place to stay in Gatlinburg. It is located on the outskirts right next to the Roaring Forks Motor Trail entrance to the Smoky Mountains National Park.

Rooms have 2 king instead of 2 queens. Very comfortable beds. Bathroom a little small. Elevators open to see inner circle of the hotel. Had dinner at the grill. Great food. Would stay here again. They warn you about the incline of the road leading to the hotel it was a little scary when we first went up but we used the trolley service to go to town and they had no problems with the road.

The Park Vista is a very nice hotel situated high above the "main strip" of stores. You can't walk but there is a trolley to take you back and forth that comes every 30 minutes. We asked for one of the highest rooms because we were hoping to be able to sit on the balcony but there are no chairs and you have to stand to see over the huge wall. It wasn't worth the extra money. We also got here before 4 hoping to check in and relax(along with a good bit of other people) but we all stood waiting by ... Read more

Decent hotel, but it's a good distance from downtown area. That can actually be a good thing as downtown Gatlinburg is very congested and pretty tacky. They do run a shuttle to downtown which allows you to avoid paying $10 everytime you go out for a meal in town. Hotel staff was friendly and the restaurant had a good hot and cold buffet breakfast for a reasonable price (with omlets made to order). Bedding was comfortable and the rooms were good size.

This hotel is very nice. It has an excellent view of the surrounding mountains. There is a trolley you can hop on at the hotel and off down in Gatlinburg so you don't have to pay to park. It makes the loop every 30 minutes. I'm sure you can find less expensive rooms but this is updated and clean with a very friendly and helpful staff.

We stopped here for a one night stay on our trip through the Smokies. The clerk at the front desk was helpful and friendly making check in easy. We also received warm yummy chocolate chip cookies upon check in. They offer complimentary bell service and luggage carts. The lobby has unique sculptures, computers and a gift shop. We found our room to be clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the fact that we did not have to leave for drinks or dinner. Food in the restaurant was good and priced in ... Read more

We have stayed at this hotel for years when coming to Gatlinburg. This trip did not disappoint. The hotel is high on a hill with great views of the mountains and downtown Gatlinburg. We chose a high floor with mountain views and could not have been happier. Each room has a balcony and there isn't a bad view. The rooms are spacious. This hotel now has a 'digital key' option which we utilized and it was fantastic! You download the Hilton Honors app and you can choose and check into your room the d... Read more

This is a nice place as to be expected by a Hilton. Beds are comfy and pillows are soft. Rooms are clean and modern. Pool area looks nice and work out room is ok.Nothing fancy but equipment is good. Breakfast is pricey but is good. Drawback is although close to town definitely not walking distance with the steep hill

Very friendly staff (staff, not management), breathtaking views, beautiful grounds, comfortable facility, but watch out at the breakfast buffet. Initially the staff seemed genuinely concerned about my illness. However once I relayed all of the details, and the fact that I had to visit the hospital due to the severity of my illness, management suddenly ended all communication.

This place has the most beautiful view in Gatlinburg. The rooms were nice and the hotel has been refurbished. It still could use some updates but overall very pleased. Has a nice indoor pool... very nice bar and bartenders were great!!! The lounge bar area is very nice. The breakfast bar was good and the appetizer we had at the bar was good. We got to see a couple of bears on the property ... they said they are frequent guest at the hotel... so don't leave your windows down or leave food out. I ... Read more

Wonderful time here, beautiful views, amazing staff. Very informative about the area and what the hotel itself offers. It is away from the Parkway which makes it quiet, no outside noise. Slept like a baby.

I have been here a couple of times and I would definitely suggest to stay here. Great and friendly people work there! Not just that, but the view is fantastic and only a few minutes away from the Gatlinburg strip but yet still in a secluded spot alone up a hill. Overall a great stay! I would recommend to anyone.

We arrived late evening and exhausted. (Be sure to enter left under the "PARK VISTA" sign.) The right fork goes up to the Grotto Falls trail head. Upon entrance to our room, the fan was very noisy. After a quick visit from the engineer, we were relocated to another comparable room with a quiet fan. The rooms were updated and clean. Wish there was a microwave in each room. Also, wish there were screen doors to each private outdoor patio. This is a quiet hotel at night. The morning bring... Read more

We were on a high floor which had a nice view but was disappointed when I saw the small balcony with no chairs. I had envisioned coffe on the balcony with a beautiful view but not possible. Also although the room was nicely appointed the coffee maker did not work and flooded the top of the dresser with coffee, when we returned to room after asking for new coffee maker not only did we have same coffee maker but the mess of coffee with coffee drenched towel was left on top of our dresser although ...

I love staying at the Park Vista, mainly because of it's location. I stay there for a conference each year, so it's nice to be able to stay in the same location as the event and not have to travel back and forth. The outside views, complete with an outdoor fire pit at night, is great. That almost makes up for the pricey room!

If you drive there at night be aware there is no illuminated sign. The emp who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The majority of staff were not very friendly. When we checked int the room still had trash. The shower had mold growing. The wall paper had bubbled up in the shower. The leather couch was in bad shape. The view from the balcony was great. One great waitress Jennifer who was friendly and efficient. The food was ok. I would not recommend it.

This was the best hotel experience I have ever had! My husband and i stayed here on our honeymoon. The staff was extremely nice.. Todd was the best! He welcomed us into the hotel and was so informative about everything in the area. He truly made our experience wonderful! The room itself was so hard to leave at the end of our stay. It felt like home and was so clean and spotless! I will without a doubt be staying here again in the future!

We had a wonderful stay in Gatlinburg for two days last week. The value you get for this hotel is incredible. A shout out to two employees who went out of their way: Sarah (I think that was her name), who I kept bugging for change - she was lovely and was there the evening of Nov. 1st and morning of Nov. 2nd...and George the bellhop, whose serotonin levels were turned up to 11 because he covered the whole history of the hotel in three minutes.

We were in a two room suite. It was clean and comfortable. It was in need of a freshening. The couch was quite worn and the furnishings were dated. I really liked the two thermostats so the bedroom could be cooler than the main room. The unit had a refrigerator, but the microwave was in the hallway by the elevators. The biggest disappointment was the balconies. There were two, but they are only about 18 inche's wide, with a higher, solid wall. It's fine for looking over, but no way could... Read more

We stayed for a quick weekend getaway to hike in the Smokies. We figured our toddler would enjoy the pool and water slides, which he did. We ate dinner at the restaurant when we arrived. I wouldn't seek it out as a dining destination, but it was certainly solid food for a night you don't want to deal with downtown Gatlinburg, and the service was friendly. The rooms are quite big with balconies to enjoy the views. The only real downside to the hotel for us was that it's not really safe to wal... Read more

The rooms are big and spacious. Very nice view from the upper rooms. It's the 3rd time we book this hotel. The beds are like home. It badly needs a fresh coat of paint. Breakfast was average and bland. The person at the eggs station can definitely not make an omelet, the veggies where still far too crunchy and raw. We won't be eating breakfast there again. Please schedule 2 servers in the bar during busy evening hours. The bar menu was very good.

We were looking for a quick get away over the July holiday and stayed at the Doubletree. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious. We got two rooms connecting since we had two teenage boys. The breakfast is great and filled them up. Close to downtown that you can take the trolley or drive down the hill. Location is great if you are going to the Smoky Mountains. Would recommend the hotel.

As I write this I am informed that the day after we checked out the fires hit Gatlinburg. This was my first trip to the area and we had a wonderful time. I hope they reopen the Park Vista because it in named appropriately. The views were amazing. First hotel I ever stayed in that had twin king size beds in a room. Great staff. Thank you for your kindness during our stay.

Everyone at the Park Vista was very pleasant. We like to stay at this hotel based on the location to down town Gatlinburg. We have stayed in other hotels but keep coming back to Park Vista based on our great experiences we keep having here. It feels very homey and my son loves the pool with the slide.
