I stay here quite often for work travel. Staff are so friendly and helpful. The room service is excellent. Good choices with attention to healthy food. Located close to downtown and convenient to anything needed. Currently on the 5th floor. I make sure the curtains are closed at night and don't get a lot of street noise. Parking is easy... More

Stayed here for a conference this week. The hotel is a nice business class hotel, featuring plenty of amenities for the business traveler. However, it would also seem a good place for families. Check in and check out were prompt, courteous, and accurate. Staff was helpful and friendly. Ate at the restaurant a few times for the breakfast buffet (which... More

We were here for a short stay before coming for a convention a month later ... (Checking out the hotel) I must say everyone we came into contact with at the hotel went above and beyond the call of duty! They were very hospitable and kind. Especially helpful was Leslie the bellman/concierge, he was the best! Gave great suggestions and... More

Each night of our 3 day stay starting about 1am and running through 3 am, fire engines and emergency vehicles raced past our hotel and our 6th floor room felt like I was sitting right on the curb getting the full blast of the constant noise! No sleep for 3 nights! Everything else was very good including the restaurant!

The Holiday Inn World's Fair Park was an excellent place to stay. My family stayed there during the Destination Imagination convention in May 2015, which was ideally located for all that was going on. The hotel was very busy with other DI'ers, but since that is what we were there for, we didn't mind. The breakfast at the hotel was... More

We were in town for a wedding and took advantage of the wedding party group rate at the Holiday Inn to spend the night near the reception venue (The Foundry). It's been a long time since I've stayed at a full blown Holiday Inn so looked forward to seeing what they've done. Check-in was quick and efficient. They do charge... More

A mixed bag. Really comes down to what bothers you. As I lay here listening to an extremely loud ac unit that woke me up half the night (in tandem with the loud traffic if you are lucky enough to get a room in front side of hotel :/) I'm compelled to go ahead and start my review now while... More

We appreciate you taking the time to write such a detailed review on our property. It is always helpful to see what the guests say and their point of view. The joy of having different color options is the exact reason a red room to you is not relaxing where some people enjoy the vibrant color. I am pleased to... More

We checked in and the staff was super friendly. room was ok, nothing spectacular, but it was clean and what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. We went for dinner at the onsite restaurant and this is where things because bad. I ordered the fish and asked for a salad instead of fries. It seemed like a big to-do, but... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay here. Unfortunately, it looks like you did not have a pleasant experience in our restaurant. I am sorry that you had to experience this type of service, because it is not the norm for the restaurant employees. We always try and meet every guest need. It is... More

We chose this hotel as a quick stop on a road trip, passing through Knoxville. Even though it is located downtown, next to World Fair Park, it has very easy & quick access to the freeways. Parking is available underneath the hotel, but there is an $8 daily charge. The building itself is older, perhaps built at the same time... More
