Everyone from the bellman to our girl who checked us in, Sara Parris, ...was "over the top" nice and helpful. We ate breakfast both mornings in the restaurant downstairs and the food was great...Brad and Lidia were our waiters and both friendly and helpful with things around the area. We will continue to return to this Holiday Inn every time... More

We were upgraded to the 11th floor, which has limited access and a small lounge. Breakfast there is free. On the weekend, you are given a card good for a free buffet downstairs. The club room attendant is great, open and willing to consider special requests. Housekeeping was responsive as well, with a replacement coffee maker when the one in... More

Right off the interstate, next to World's Fair Park, and within walking distance to Market Square and the Theaters. Super clean, with friendly staff. Parking is not free, but affordable. The rooms are nothing extravagant, but nice. The beds are a bit firm for my liking, but the pillows are perfect! Snag yourself a deal on a booking, and you'll... More

My husband and I stayed here for New Year's Eve. The room we were in was on the top floor. We paid over $200 for the night alone, which was supposed to have a bar for the floor, but it was closed due to the holiday. There was no microwave or mini fridge, which was extremely surprising since this was... More

Visited Knoxville January 2016 and planned on staying here for one night. Our plans changed when the snowstorm hit, and ended up extending our stay an extra couple of nights. Front desk people were very accommodating and the food from the downstairs restaurant was reasonable and pretty tasty. The beds were incredible comfy! Great views of downtown. Would stay again.

This property is conveniently located about a ten minute walk from Neyland Stadium. The parking is quick and easy. You have to take one elevator to the lobby and another to the floors. They have a really nice buffet before and after the game. We went for the game on Parents Weekend and the game was a blowout. I think... More

We had a group event here; I stayed the first night. Check-in was easy. Parking was easy even though the hotel was full. The doorman and the parking attendant were friendly. The bed --- ah, very comfortable! I also liked the fact that I could move the armchair and ottoman closer to the t.v.

Discovered the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park when looking for a place to stay to take my daughter to school at UT. The room, breakfast, parking, location and staff were great that first time and we have been back many times since. Easy to get to from the highway, one light and your on campus, friendly staff and good breakfast... More
