It's a shame she didn't want to book Park Place. While you're there, give Best Italian a try. It's located in a small plaza (Elks) beside Howards steak house. It's in the very back. You should take a look at Park Place while you're there. I'm curious about where your wife booked?
mmorgan, how long have you been staying at PP? I've been staying there for 7 years. Bill (the guy that used to own it) Marie, Cathy, and Amanda, were like family. I even went to Amanda's wedding. I'm pretty sure Marie and Cathy still work there. They were the main reason I stayed their so much but the location of the place is ideal for Gatlinburg, even when it's crowded. If my guests want to stay in Gatlinburg I don't even consider sending them anywhere else.
