I am a college student living here because my apartment is not being done built yet and I don't want to move out of this hotel. The staff is absolutely amazing, they could not be more friendly and personable. They memorized my breakfast order and I know a lot of them by name. They are so helpful and do an... More

We stayed here for UT Family Weekend. It was nearby all activities, downtown, a great place to stay overall. The rooms were clean and in good condition, plenty of parking. The front desk staff was fast and friendly. At breakfast we were greeted by Brad and we talked about the Vols and the weekend and life in TN, to top... More

We stayed after a race in Bristol and the hotel was clean, very modern, staff was very helpful. The location of the hotel was the best part, right next to the worlds fair park and it was very neat to see all the children playing in the fountains! A short walk downtown and there were so many things to do!... More

This is THE PLACE that you want to stay if you're in town for an event at the convention center, but be aware: everything cost extra. There is no continental breakfast. The restaurant downstairs has a great breakfast but be ready to pay for it. It cost my wife and I about $30. Also parking IS NOT included with the... More

The location and price of this hotel are simply unbeatable. There is an amphitheater, splash pad, and other attractions directly behind the hotel. Good restaurants and the Saturday morning market are also within a short walking distance. Now the bad. The check-in staff was snotty at each interaction and there is a fire station in close proximity so you literally... More

This hotel has undergone several transformations since the early days of the Worlds Fair.

My room was very comfortable , nice, cool and clean. PERFECT. Very close to bars and restraunts. Dave Richardson in the bar was way more than a southern gentleman and accomadating. Easy to access hotel. Great location. Easy to find.
