“A Great Nights Stay”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

We stay at this Holiday Inn once a year, every year to attend a local festival. We have witnessed the Hotel change over the years. I am happy to report that the Hotel is the best it has ever been. The staff was GREAT. The condition of the common areas were crisp and clean. The room was very nice and impeccably clean. We ate at the restaurant too and had an awesome steak. We couldn't have asked for more.

We have been staying here during fall football weekends for the past three years. The improvements over the past two years are fantastic. The staff treats us like family and is truly the friendliest staff of any hotel we visit. Business travel takes us to over 100 different locations a year. The amenities here are wonderful and make our stays a true "mini vacation". We can walk across the street to attend Convention Center events or several blocks to see the Vols. Such a perfect location!

We stayed only one night while visiting UT campus. Location was great. We missed a shuttle bus to go out for dinner, but it was a walking distance to downtown shops and eateries, so we walked. The room was average "Holiday Inn", and there's nothing to note about the hotel staff. We were charged about $9 for parking.

Stayed for a Tennessee football game. Hotel has great views of the city. The bar is a bit expensive but your paying for convienance. Shuttle bus works as expected, had them drop us off for dinner and pick us up after. Room was clean and in good shape. This hotel is about what I expect from a High priced downtown hotel, nice rooms, great service and amenities.

We stayed here while visiting the UT campus with my step-daughter and attended a UT football game. I flew in from a business trip and they drove in. We had an issue with check in and then an issue with the room. I brought these two items to the attention of the General Manager and he sincerely took an interest with our situation. Now this was a crazy football weekend with UT playing UG but he stopped in the middle of assisting other guests and listened intently. He told me that he would have Susan (I'm doing her a disservice by not remembering her name with certainty...she was great!) personally take care of us. Not only did they take care of us and genuinely wanted to correct the situation but they went above and beyond. Last year I spent over 300 nights in hotels and have been a road warrior for 22 years. I kind of know what to expect from various hotel chains and they went above and beyond. These guys were great and I can't say enough about well they dealt with the situation. Thank you!

This was my first time staying in a Holiday Inn in probably 10-15 years. We joined friends in Knoxville for a UT ballgame and this is where they chose to stay because of the proximity to downtown and the football stadium. The lowdown quickly.........front desk and check-in - very good. room - fortunately the hotel has been recently renovated so it was clean and pleasant. housekeeping - good and efficient. restaurant - no so pleasant, unappealing menu and odd location.

Things to know: even numbered rooms are quiet, odd numbered rooms face a busy street and the window soundproofing is lacking therefore noise level at night is high........rooms with light green decor feel more light, airy and modern compared to deep red decor........in room coffemaker is supplied with one serving of caffeine or decaf coffee........annoying.

Bottom line: for this type hotel it is pretty good..........staff very professional.........remember to get an even numbered room..........it will make the difference between a pleasant stay or a miserable night with little sleep.

Room Tip: even numbered room - there is a concierge level but not sure what that is all about at a Holiday Inn...

Pleasantly we were overwhelmed by the cleanliness of the hotel room and the beautiful wine and fruit cheese tray they provided us with as newly weds very nice! Where to start with rehearsal dinner it was an absolutely beautiful location with floor to ceilings windows. On to the best part as being Chef I hold the food to a very high standard, was delicious. The anti-pasta was very bountiful with sliced imported meats and cheeses, marinated olives, cipollini onions marinated in balsamic, and nice bread. The salad was a capresse fresh nice tomatoes and large slices of fresh mozzarella fresh basil and balsamic vin delicious! We had two different protiens salmon or pork with roasted new potatoes and spinach Maria, I had the pork wich was perfectly cooked and season these are two of my number one concerns as a Chef. My wife had the salmon an said it was very nicely cooked moist and seasoned perfectly.Over all the food and service was outstanding And everyone was extremely happy. Thank you
