"These will be rooms that overlook the Island Show Fountains," said Director of Sales Mike McElroy. "The rest of our rooms will be avail- able December 1st. We should be firing on all cylinders by the begin- ning of the new year. The four-star amenities we offer for every unit in the hotel include a flat screen TV, a stacked stone fireplace, wet bar, re- frigerator, microwave, as well as a Margaritaville-style frozen concoc- tion maker. We also feature private balconies, a rooftop pool and hot tub, 24-hour security, valets and concierge." McElroy added that the new property will have 4,500 to 5,000 square feet of meeting space. Other Pigeon Forge hotels include the 163-room Music Road Hotel and the 140-room Music Road Inn, both adjacent to Music Road Con- vention Center's 20,000 square feet of meeting space; the 206-room Hol- iday Inn Pigeon Forge, which has a conference center attached that can accommodate groups up to 1,000; the 128-room Inn on the River; and many more similarly sized properties. Also, Hard Rock Pigeon Forge Café opened this spring. Pigeon Forge's Downey summed it all up. "We've got a lot of exciting things going on in Pigeon Forge." ■ Margaritaville Island Hotel To Open COMING SOON!
