It would take all day to explain how pleasant and helpful every staff member was on or stay. We checked in after a very long car ride. This hotel is right off the interstate but right in the heart of downtown! Stephanie was extremely helpful in getting a room to suite us. And offered a map, directions, and restaurant recommendations... More

We stayed here for one night passing through to Texas. Our boys loved the water fountains and playground nearby. It was a short walk to the Market Square with lively restaurants and good food. Our room had all of the amenities we needed (including the free WiFi). The room did need a little dusting. I did like the fact that... More

I'm very pleased with my experience at this property. The hotel staff, including front desk, lounge and restaurant personnel, were very friendly and accommodating. They have personnel to greet you at the door and offer to help with bags. The staff at the reservation desk greeted me immediately. I arrived without a reservation on a stop from a long road... More

This hotel was very easy to get to. The location allows you to walk to many of the sites in Knoxville. The hotel is right next to the Worlds Fair Sphere and you can go to the top to get a birds eye view of the area. You can walk a couple blocks to the market square which has several... More

This is our second trip to this hotel for a football weekend. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, and good value. We were in walking distance of Neyland Stadium, Market Square, and walking trails. This hotel is easy to find and the staff is fantastic. Varnell was our waiter at the restaurant and the professionalism and enjoyment he showed for... More

A friend and I (plus puppy dogs) traveled to the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park, Knoxville, to watch my brother entertain at their "Windows on the Park" Restaurant and Lounge. Pets are permitted and there is a nice dog run close to the parking garage and another dog-friendly walk in the Park across the street. Check in was easy and... More

IHG and Holiday Inn have made a significant push to establish the brand as THE hotels of choice whether conducting business or pleasure. The Holiday Inn World's Fair Park is proud to lead the way.

Nice hotel with good amenities. Comfortable room that cost a little more because of home football game. What we really liked was that it was in close proximity to greenway walking trails and was within easy walking distance to Market Square (shopping, restaurants, and coffee shops). Will return here in the future.

Upon arrival our check-in was pleasent, the desk clerks were professional, friendly and courteous. The rooms were nice and spacious. They didn't have a fridge or microwave but the place was so nice and cozy with the friendly atmosphere I will go back and just spend the extra money for outings and food.

So I was a little kid when the World's Fair hit Knoxville. I remember it was a big deal, but for some reason as an adult, I think perhaps I've avoided this hotel because of the World's Fair reference. Don't ask me why, but it just conjured up thoughts of a hotel stuck in 1982. But that's definitely not the... More
