We stayed here for a Lady Vols game in March 2014. It was close to Thompson-Bowling and Market square. Prices were good too. The on reason we didnt stay there this year is because we wanted to try something different. I would definately stay here again.

Rex our waiter is awesome. a group of 4 came to do laundry and grab food. Because the crown plaza doesn't have a shuttle, washers, or doors that lock.. The holiday Inn will be where we stay anytime income to Knoxville.

From the moment we checked in Megan and the entire staff of the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park went above and beyond any of my expectations! We were in town for a long weekend to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and Valentine's Day. After seeing that he was a FSU fan and that his birthday was the following day. We returned... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a convention. They did a wonderful job accommodating almost 300 of us. We were able to check-in early! A pleasant surprise. Hotel was clean, comfortable and appeared to have been recently updated. Nice bar with live music. Food was better than typical hotel cuisine. Friendly, helpful staff, especially Holly in the coffee shop.... More

Bar is one of the bessed I stay at--bar staff is very comfortable to be around--will continue to stay at this location when I travel to the Knoxville area. Nice place to stay...good for the down town Knoxville area.

I travel for work. I am an IHG platinum member (50 plus nights per calender year) and as a result I have stayed at probably 40 (this is an estimate, it's very likely that I have stayed at more) different ihg hotels throughout the country. This hotel tops them all. Every time I come to Knoxville I stay here. It... More

Very nice hotel and very convenient to Knoxville Convention Center which is directly across the street. Loved, loved, loved the heated pool, but would have been nice if there was also a hot tub area and a place to take a shower after swimming. I do not agree with having to pay to park at ANY hotel if you are... More

We stayed here for two nights because we were in town for an event being held at the convention center directly across the street. Location was great for that reason as well as being adjacent to the world's fair park and Sun Sphere. A three block walk gets you to a great street of restaurants which we frequented for every...
