First they booked me into a room that was already occupied. Then they refused to honor my points for a second night. I spoke to the MOD and he acknowleded that they had rooms available but he would not honor my points earned after staying at one of their properties for 14 straight months. Try the Red Roof in instead.

We stopped off here for the night before heading to Nashville. Checking in was a pleasant experience. Staff very polite and extremely helpful. Our room was big enough apart from the bathroom which was very small. I find the same in other Holiday Inns I have stayed in. I also found it strange that the coffee/tea machine was in the... More

My husband and I visited Knoxville for the first time to see the Vols vs Chattanooga game. We were really pleased with our choice of hotels, as we really didn't know anything about Knoxville. Everyone we met, from the front desk staff, to the waiters, to the housekeeping staff were helpful. It was easy to find, check-in was easy, the... More

Warm welcome from Colin, who gave us lots of information about the area. Thanks indeed for that. Our room was spacious and clean, we also had a view over the park and as we were on the 11th (executive) floor we were ensured privacy from on lookers. Bathroom small but adequate. Not too sure about the coffee maker being positioned... More

Thank you for taking the time to write and share your experience. I am pleased that Collin got things off and running on the right foot. Overall, it sounds like a bit of a mixed bag with your experience. Some good and some average. That is simply not good enough for our team. I will most definitely look into the... More

Great location for attending UT football. Fantastic staff and helpful with check-in. The lounge was very comfortable; not too loud and well stocked bar and tap. Live music on Friday was well done ... not too loud, not too corny. The 11th floor lounge for breakfast was great. Traveling with family members made it convenient for grandchildren to have a...

Stayed here for a conference at the convention center for two nights. Great location, just walk across the street to the center. Parking garage was good and easy to get around in. Hotel seemed very clean, most staff was cordial. I LOVE that they are so eco-friendly. The attention to energy saving techniques was very impressive. You must put your... More

My husband and I just stayed here and found that it was a very great location. We walked to the market and found some great food along with some beautiful sights. Just loved downtown Knoxville. We would definitely stay here again when we come to Knoxville!

My husband and our small dog were visiting Knoxville and we loved this hotel. It was super clean and very comvenient to the downtown area. This Hotel also had a small dog park area which was appreciated since there is not much green space. There is also a walking path on the backside of this Hotel which we enjoyed. BTW... More

Thank you so much for your comments. Knoxville is indeed incredibly friendly as is the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park. In fact, we just received excellent coverage from an established four-legged travel writer, Pup Stout in both "The Tennessean" and "Southern Exposure Magazine" extolling the virtues of Knoxville for pet-friendly travel. Please look for other IHG pet-friendly hotels in your... More

If you're looking to stay at a place that knows how to treat its customers well, DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS PLACE.
