“Convenient friendly business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Easy access off the freeway and walking distance to the Market Square area which has many bars/restaurants. Friendly staff, adequate breakfast. The usual fitness room/wifi amenities. No refrigerator in room so not great for longer stays if you want to keep food. Comfortable room. Easy parking but you have to pay for it. My customer gets a great rate so the value is excellent here; I'd suggest that you call them and see if you can beat the posted rate.

Room Tip: Ask if they can give you a break on the rate. My customer gets a corporate rate that's 40% less...

Staff was friendly and we were pleased that the pool and fitness center opened at 5:30. But $141 for a senior rate PLUS parking of $8 and no complimentary breakfast seemed steep.

It is an easy walk to downtown, where we had a nice supper and checkout wasn't until noon which was also nice for us on this particular visit.

Sorry, not sure how to do this - I'd like to let folks know 'the rest of the story' since the hotel was kind enough to respond to my posting here. I appreciated hearing from them through TripAdvisor - however I was out of the country and so didn't get the email for quite sometime after it was sent.

Two things had happened since my review...the car had to be left at an OUTSIDE airport parking lot for almost 3 weeks where it received harsh, repeated rain and a 'smack' of some sort right on the hood right by the lime stain received from parking at the hotel! (Is my new car doomed?!) So between the constant 'natural car wash', the smack getting repaired, and LOTS of other buffing and rubbing (my elbow grease) the stain was removed before I saw the note from the hotel about trying to make resolution. SO...I applaud them for opening the dialogue to try to help with the stain caused by their parking lot during my stay.

Hopefully the remodel is finished and the appointments lovely! Since their email I would return to stay but I have learned my lesson about parking in
ANY UNDERGROUND GARAGE!

We came to Knoxville for a weekend getaway. Holiday Inn at World's Fair Park is in a great location. Easy walking distance to Market Square, University of Tennessee campus and of course, World's Fair Park. Beds are extremely comfortable and the hotel staff were all very helpful and hospitable.

Room Tip: Only downside is if you get a room on the Henley Street side, the traffic noise is rather loud.

Was in Knoxville for an interview and stayed here for the night. The Best holiday inn I've stayed in! They treated me like a king. Wonderful location, city attractions nearby, ample parking spaces. Lobby was rich, welcome was warm, room spacious and luxurious. Loved the experience n highly recommend!

The customer service, cleanliness, decor, of this hotel put it at the top of its class of hotels. The rooms were larger than normal and very clean. The only complaint I have on the room is that I wasn't able to sleep real well. The bed was not comfortable and the noise from sirens on Friday night was also bothersome, but not too bad.
They have a nice restaurant and very nice lounge. It is within walking distance of downtown events as well as the University of Tennessee. In addition, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service to anywhere within 3 miles(?) of the hotel, which is very convenient around the college campus where public parking is almost unavailable or extremely expensive!
I just recommend they invest in higher quality mattresses!

You can't beat this hotel for location in Knoxville. The University, Worlds Fair Park and Market Square area are all just a few blocks away.

The hotel itself is a high end Holiday Inn. Really more on the Crown Plaza level. Nice rooms/lobby and a fantastic restaraunt! Service was exceptional as well.

The only disappointment was a rather blasé fitness room. The equipment was clean and in good working shape, but it needs updating/expansion.

Overall a very good experience.
