SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, July 12, 2013 – The hospitality firm headquartered in downtown Spokane, FairBridge Hotels International, today announced the opening of its newest hotel 1900 miles away in the mountain resort city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

The 98-room Brookside Resort by FairBridge is located at 463 E Parkway at the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The rustic resort offers stream-side rooms and cozy cabins with access to quiet nature trails while still being only a half-mile from Gatlinburg’s main strip.

Brookside goes above and beyond the standard amenities expected at a FairBridge, like free hot breakfast and wi-fi, with extras like wood-burning fireplaces, kitchenettes, and whirlpools. The 10-acre property has a gym, basketball, volleyball, a pool with a waterfall, and even a putting green

“Our strategy to expand responsibly,” said Frederick Schoener, Director of Brand Operations, “Means that a resort like Brookside makes an excellent FairBridge. We’re pleased to expand our presence east of the Mississippi.”
