Best Indoor-Outdoor Hotel Hot Tub

Sometimes you need a night away. And sometimes you just don’t feel like making the effort to go “out of town.” Maybe try AC Hotel in Liberty Center? This posh but attainably priced stay sits atop the back end of Liberty’s outdoor shopping mall. The mall’s DORA district offers a wide range of delicious restaurants, one of those fancy-AF theaters with reclining seats and tons of shopping. Most importantly, though, AC has a very nice second-floor pool and indoor-outdoor hot tub. Ever sat in a steaming hot tub while the snow falls around you? It’s baller, y’all. And you don’t have to drive all the way to the Pigeon Forge to find it. marriott.com.
