4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Located next to UT, you can't beat this location. Beware of Cumberland Road construction which is challenging and the hotel parking is extra ($10 per day) and valet only. Adam is a great bartender and the food at the hotel is very good. Rooms seem a bit smaller than regular Garden Inns but clean. Staff are very friendly.

This was a trip for business..I was to stay at another Hilton, but made reservations late so the rate was not possible. So the attendant gladly found another Hilton nearby that would suit my needs. It was in a great location...all types of restaurants. The hotel staff great and shuttle service awesome. Room was warm cool and cozy.

We used this hotel for its location to a race event our kids in which are kids were participating. We were able to follow the directions to the hotel easily as well as get to the event easily. So location worked well! There are plenty of eateries close by to walk to for dinner or breakfast. Also, The HGI has... More

My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed overnight at this hotel two weeks ago when we moved my grandson into his dorm at UTK. We were extremely pleased with the hotel’s location - it is so close to campus that we could see his dorm room from our hotel room. Our room at the Garden Inn was extremely clean, large and... More

Hilton Garden Inn University Knoxville has become my new favorite hotel experience. From the arrival greeting by the valet staff and through the total hotel experience, the stay is perfect. The staff is friendly, courteous, professional and responsive to your every need. The lobby is well designed, the rooms are comfortable and quiet and the breakfast food is delicious. Its... More

It is true that you must use the valet parking, but it really is practical considering where this hotel is located. You won't find a closer and more convenient place near UT campus, as well as being close to downtown hospitals. The decor is lovely, both in the rooms and public areas, but what impressed us most was the outstanding... More

This hotel is great because of its location to UT. If you have a student to pick up or drop off, then this is the hotel for you. Staff is very professional. Dinner is above average. Breakfast buffet is a little below average. In addition, its not complimentary.

We found the hotel nice, clean, and having pleasant service people in general. So imagine our total surprise, however, with the extremely non- sympathetic phone call from the General Manager of this hotel informing us that it was OUR responsibility to have asked for our car keys back from the hotel valet - who allowed us to drive our keyless...

I stayed during my fathers hospital stay nearby. The service and hotel is great. Clean rooms, great food, and felt very safe. The service made me feel taken care of and safe. They let me check in early because they new I was so tire. I will stay here again.
