This upscale 21-story hotel is a signature piece of a sophisticated mountain resort. Cuningham Group designers integrated a modern spin on lodge design, inspired by nature and the surrounding Great Smoky Mountains.

The Creek Tower includes 454 standard guest rooms and 68 two-bay guest rooms. The guest rooms are playful with a pebble path guiding guests towards the dramatic outdoor views. Simultaneously, contemporary landscape artwork and the creative use of genuine natural materials for furniture and millwork further extenuate the modern lodge experience. The multi-bay suites offer distinctive themes such as “traditional lodge,” “ski lodge,” and “vibrant bloom.” Themes play out through material and color palette, design details in headboards, lighting, artwork, and accessories. Finally, two Super Suites cap the 21st floor’s north and south ends, providing an exclusive retreat for VIP guests and dramatic views of the mountain panorama.
