Businesses and organizations who are planning a conference or convention choose Gatlinburg because of all the amenities the city has to offer, like central location and a variety of activities for all ages and interests. When businesses and organizations are looking for hotel accommodations for their conference attendees, proximity to the convention center and hotel amenities play an important role in their decision making process. Gatlinburg hosts several youth leadership conferences and Christian youth conventions throughout January and February. “The Edgewater Hotel has become the flagship hotel for these conference attendees,” says the Hotel’s manager. Steps away from the Gatlinburg Convention Center, the Edgewater Hotel offers convenience to conference guests.
One Edgewater Hotel feature that guests love is the indoor swimming pool. Being able to swim year-round is a big plus for guests of all ages. Pool-side Jacuzzis are also a great way to wind down after a busy day of conference activities. The teenage conference goers love the game room and arcade at the Edgewater Hotel. They can get their video game fix after a fun-filled day of hanging out with friends throughout the event. Parents who send their children to youth conferences appreciate the safety features of the Edgewater Hotel. Rooms have interior doors so kids can feel safe staying away from home. Each room is equipped with micro-fridges, perfect for storing left-over pizza to eat as a late-night snack. Also, microwaves and coffee makers are in each room, making it a home away from home throughout the conference. The complimentary continental breakfast in the morning is an added benefit for all guests, especially those on a budget. This hot and cold breakfast is a perfect way to start off a day filled with conference activities. Plus saving the expense from eating breakfast at a restaurant each morning is a smart and tasty way to save money.
The Edgewater Hotel’s location is perfect when conference attendees have free time. The Hotel is located at the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the perfect spot for hiking, picnicking, and just hanging out in nature. Right on the Pigeon River, the scenery of the Edgewater Hotel couldn’t be more ideal. The Edgewater Hotel has such a rich history of being the host hotel for youth conferences, that staff members have many stories where a parent or chaperone stayed at the Hotel during a youth conference and are now bringing their children to the Edgewater for a youth convention. “It’s a great human interest story,” the Edgewater Hotel manager says, “They’re introduced to the Edgewater through a youth conference and then they re-visit the hotel with their children.” The Edgewater Hotel is proud to build long-term relationships with convention and conference attendees.
