Tennessee Hilton Garden Inn to Pursue LEED
A Hilton Garden Inn will open next summer on River Road in downtown Gatlinburg, Tenn., as part of a revitalization of that part of the city and a project expected to boost the nearby convention center. Hospitality Management Solutions Inc., a locally-owned company, will manage the $15 million hotel, which will be built where River Oaks Center is now located. The company bought that property and the adjacent parking lot where King's Court used to be located. River Oaks will be torn down in the coming weeks. Logan Coykendall, president of Hospitality Solutions and a Gatlinburg native, said the Hilton hotel will include 118 guest rooms. It also will be a certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design facility. For additional details, click here.
