The staff are the star at this property. Yes the building is dated, but it is spacious and located close to downtown. If you get the chance, do the quick walk to the down town square, very nice bars and restaurants for a relatively small town. Back at the hotel, all the staff are excellent, from check on to the...

Stayed here recently for one night. We went to a concert at the Bijou Theater so the location was really good. Check in and out was easy, no issues. This is an older Marriott property and the rooms are really dated but they were clean, so that's all that really matters. The lobby area is really cool and unique. There... More

I stayed at a Marriot in Illinois and that is why I chose this one, but there was no refridgerator or microwave, internet isn't free and no continental breakfast, I've stayed at cheaper places that were just as clean with all of those amenities. Also they did not have an ice bucket in the room. The staff was nice and... More

Thank you for your response. I apologize that you were not pleased with the amenities. Full service hotels do not tend to have breakfast included in the rate, but we do always have refrigerators and microwaves available upon request at no additional charge! We truly value your business, and I hope you'll give us another try in the future. Please... More

We planned an event at this location. During the planning process, we worked with the catering manager for the menu and we worked with the sales manager for rooms booking. The caterining manager was great. Super professional, very responsive, provided pricing and took changes without any problems at all. The sales manager was a different story. She was completely disorganized,... More

If there's a theme in my hotel reviews, it often has to do with my allergy to fragrances and perfumes. (My husband is similarly afflicted.) I've switched my allegiance from the chains that, one by one, have gotten into "branding" themselves with scents (which "branded" them completely off my radar despite years of loyalty and commitment to them.) So I... More

I stayed at this hotel with my 3 kids on July 4th so we could be close to downtown for the fireworks. This hotel has a beautiful lobby but the room we had (10th floor with a balcony) was a little tired and small. Our room was clean and the staff was very courteous. The beds were comfortable and the... More

The staff could not have been nicer, especially Shelly who was working in the Concierge Lounge. The location offers easy access via I 40 and offers trolley and walkable options and complimentary parking. Our room was on the 11th floor which is where Marriott Reward Members are offered upgrades. The view from the room was nice and overlooking the river.... More

We wanted a downtown hotel for our stay in Knoxville and it was between this and the Hilton. The price difference was minimal so we went with Marriott. It's a beautiful hotel with outstanding public areas. The lobby ix expansive and visually pleasing. The staff was very helpful providing directions to a number of dinning options and the free trolley... More

I'm sure when this hotel was built it was quite amazing. It is after all quite different architecturally from most hotels. One side of the hotel slopes sharply which reminds me of the Luxor in Las Vegas. The internal atrium is quite dramatic in size and shape and around the atrium you'll find a bar, restaurant and seating areas. The... More

Wish I have more time to visit this hotel because the lobby is very beautiful. We only stayed one night. It was a nice place. I was surprised they didn't have refrigerators. We left an item and the front desk personnel was very helpful in locating and returning it to us.
