From the front desk check-in, to repeatedly asking for assistance with on-site parking, to hair on the bathroom floor, counter and sink, would not stay here again! With all the hassle of the parking issue, I was still charged a parking "fee." It took numerous calls/emails to get this adjusted, as it should have been complimentary parking!

Enjoyed my stay! Michael on the 11th floor is great. He welcomed us every morning with a great smile and information about Knoxville. Really appreciated his service. Restaurant staff was was very attentive as were the receptionists. Great location within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants.

We have stayed several times at the Holiday Inn downtown Knoxville. Each time has been a very good stay. We love the location - close enough to walk to campus as well as around Downtown. We have not enjoyed the restaurant options including breakfast. Prices here can be steep when things are happening in the city and while the location... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us. We do see a spike in rates during the home football games during peak seasons. Like many other hotels in town the rates do vary depending on activity in the city. I do apologize for you not enjoying the experience you have had in... More

Hotel was just fine for a stopover on the way to Gatlinburg. Room was clean. Bathroom was clean. Front desk was totally unwelcoming. Hotel had a nice breakfast buffet with friendly wait staff. I would stay again for the same stopover purpose but not and extended stay.

Michael on the concierge floor is excellent. He is very personable and friendly. I enjoy the concierge breakfast in the mornings as a good start to the day. Hotel is nice and clean. Friendly people and a great location is the reason to stay here.

I came here for a friend's wedding and was very hesitant of staying in a hotel, but this hotel was an exceptional stay with exceptional service! Holly in the coffee shop was a delightful way to start my morning. She gave me a suggestion on a new way to take my coffee and will definitely be taking it that way... More

I stayed here two nights and enjoyed the convenience of having the Worlds Fair park across the street. I learned the history of the 1982 fair and enjoyed the remains of the fair including the Sunsphere. I also walked all throughout the University of Tennessee which is around the corner. Very safe area and walking friendly. The hotel itself is... More

The hotel is very nice and it's in a great location. But what really sets it apart is the service! From the moment we arrived for a weekend conference the response to every request was "How can we help you and make things better?" And they followed through with every answer. From getting us in our rooms when we arrived... More

I stayed in the hotel for three days, since I was on business trip. The Hotel is good and clean - and the location is good. It is close to the downtown and the old town of Knoxville and also to the Univerisity. However, the breakfast is expensive and not so good that is worth the money. It's bette to... More
