The Holiday Inn is in a part of Knoxville that I thought I knew. I lived in the area 40 years ago, and have visited frequently since then, but this was really different. As the name implies, the HI is located on the site of the World's Fair from back in the '80's...the last one held in the US. The... More

I stayed here before taking the PE. Everyone was nice and the room was clean and big. The restaurant downstairs was good. The bartender was friendly. This is 100% the place to stay before the PE. The parking is easy too.

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn downtown Knoxville twice and have had a very pleasant experience both times. The location is very convenient to I 40 and I 75, as well as downtown. Being located in a former World's Fair Park, makes it an interesting choice, and the grounds are expansive and well-maintained, ideal for walking and enjoying the... More

The staff at this hotel was so accommodating and friendly. We stayed 3 nights in the area for a 70.3 triathlon. The staff was eager to help us find the resources to purchase items we needed, fun and delicious meals and even post-race drinks. We look forward to staying again next year!

Nice atmosphere good prices and good beer. Got the mozzarella sticks more like wedges and they came with fried spaghetti as a garnish. It could have used some seasoning but we liked the idea. Pleasant experience especially for a hotel lounge.

Having stayed at this hotel prior, I asked for a room on the backside. The room was nice, clean and quiet. Beds were very comfortable. Probably the only drawback was cold air coming off the windows. I was there attending American Spaniel Club. They do charge a fee to have a dog in your room.

we loved the hotel and the location. We have no complaints except that we would have like to have a small refrigerator in the room. People were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was cozy and quiet.

Stayed 2 nights here with my family with a run of mill room for a triathlon. (Challenge Knoxville). We decided to stay here as it was the host hotel and it was dog friendly (which was a must). The pet fee of $35 was very reasonable for the stay which we were happy about. We were greeted with a little... More

The Good: Amazing location near World’s Fair park, historical sites, and walking distance to Market, shopping, and restaurants, heated indoor pool, friendly staff, fast elevators, plush pillows, strong water pressure in showers, outstanding Windows at the Park restaurant in the lobby, garage parking, Bath and Body Works toiletries, pet friendly (fee) and late check out for $35 free but slow...

HIWFP, General Manager at Holiday Inn World's Fair Park-Knoxville, responded to this review

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. It is unfortunate that all of the positive aspects of your visit were overshadowed by exterior design elements. Much like many of the hotels in downtown, the hotel was constructed in the early 1980's to accommodate the millions of attendees of the 1982 World's Fair held here in Knoxville. What... More

When I first booked to stay in the holiday inn world's fair park in knoxville. I was slightly apprehensive as I have stayed in the Holiday Inn in Northern Ireland a few times and have had a bit of a hit or miss experience of the hotels. I was pleasantly surprised however when I arrived. The staff were extremely helpful... More
