If you are unfortunate enough to get an odd numbered room expect little sleep from the street down below. If you are wanting to get a workout in, you won't be able to get any cardio in safely. The equipment is an off brand called "Hotel Fitness" the belts are lose on the treadmill, and the recumbent bike is uncomfortable.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write and share your feedback. I am terribly sorry you found the street noise to be excessive. While many guests enjoy the beautiful view of downtown Knoxville, the World's Fair Park view on the west side of the hotel does afford a bit more peaceful environment. I feel certain we could have accommodated... More

Clean, comfortable and stylish, great value! This property is heads above most other properties in this chain. I was pleasantly surprised and will stay here again. The room was spotless, large, and nicely remodeled. Loved it!

My sister and I were in town to attend a concert. The hotel staff, shuttle, and restaurant staff, especially Greg Cates, are exemplary. I travel a lot and have rarely found such friendly staff. They are very accommodating, professional, and appear eager to please. They go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. The wait staff was... More

Four of us stayed at the hotel while in town to see a football game. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Our room was clean and we had a great view.

Central location, within walking distance (all uphill, it seemed) of the downtown area. No in-room fridge and pay to park in hotel garage. Several blocks away is an area full of restaurants and curio shops.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As a full service hotel we offer all of the amenities you may need, but there is an additional cost associated with that. As a centrally located hotel in downtown we offer one of the cheapest rates for parking for our guests. We also offer a free shuttle that allows... More

We reserved a block of rooms at this hotel for a technical meeting at UTK in May. The sales staff (Brooke Cross) was very helpful in setting up these reservations, and allowing us to make several changes as our attendee's schedules changed. She was very easy to work with and made us feel welcome. Once the attendees arrived, everything went... More

This location has been renovated and has some great amenities. The building was constructed for the World's Fair in Knoxville in 1982. The views from the bar are great and the food is not the normal bar food. We were quite please with our visit to the hotel.

We stayed here for Thanksgiving week. The staff was very welcoming. The rate was very reasonable: $134 for a 2 room suite. We had a nice view of World's Fair Park. My kids enjoyed the indoor pool. It was very clean. We have people in West Knoxville, and East Knoxville to visit, so staying in the middle of town was... More

Thank you for taking the time to write and share your feedback. I am truly sorry that we failed to exceed your expectations. The university negotiates rates directly with hotels that are exclusive of breakfast and other considerations so they can extend the best possible rate to their visitors and clients. We do have breakfast packages available which include breakfast... More

Stayed for one night on the 10th floor - room was nice, clean, very big, and staff was helpful. We loved the location because we could walk just a couple blocks over to the main square. You can hear the traffic because the hotel is located just off the highway, but this did not bother us.
