The hotel is great & as you can tell in this video, I am super excited (HYPER) about meeting BCElevators. I wasn't paying too close attention to what I was filming at times and so excuse the shaking on those parts.

I also added an excerpt of the tour that the GM Karen Grissom and Sales Manager Rachel Amelkin took us on the first time we visited their hotel which was earlier in the year.

This is a YouTube first for me.

For all the ones who have been requesting me to do a food review video - here it is :)2013-04-24 22:07:57

A Tour of the Hampton Inn in Sevierville, Tennessee
This was a very nice Hampton Inn. It is of the older styles Hampton that is in the starting process of renovations at the moment. We had a very nice stay and the staff is very friendly. If you ever are in the Sevierville area which is very close to Pigeon Forge, I would recommend this hotel. :) I will be uploading the video of the whirlpool suite that we stayed in (along with another room tour with the head housekeeper) soon. There are pictures of the Whirlpool Suite included in this clip however. I was having a bit of trouble with some of the files on the one camera card. Some of this may seem to be a bit choppy at times but we were having camera issues either locking up or not focusing right and also shutting off with the battery dying at one point. We did the best we could with these particular files that seemed to be affected. This was my 2nd look into a pool equipment room which was pretty neat.2013-04-17 05:23:00
