GATLINBURG, Tenn.--Doubletree Hotels is proud to announce the opening of the The Park Vista – A Doubletree Hotel – Gatlinburg. Prior to becoming a Doubletree, this 300-room, circular landmark hotel which rises high above the Great Smoky Mountains and the popular leisure destination of Gatlinburg completed an $11 million renovation project. The upscale hotel now offers a stylish, full-service hotel experience with contemporary guest rooms, modern meeting and event space, delicious dining offerings and more.
“We are proud to open our tenth Doubletree hotel in Tennessee in the great city of Gatlinburg,” said Rob Palleschi, global head, Doubletree Hotels. “The Park Vista – A Doubletree Hotel – Gatlinburg has undergone an outstanding transformation, which has truly revived one of this city’s landmark buildings.

The hotel is owned by RB Hotel Park Vista, LLC, a subsidiary of Rockbridge Capital, LLC, under a franchise agreement with a subsidiary of Hilton Worldwide. Davidson Hotel Company, one of the nation’s largest independent hotel management companies, managed the renovation project and will continue to manage the property.
