WOW! What a great surprise! Who knew a Holiday Inn could be this nice! Rooms were updated & have nice comfy beds. We frequented the coffee shop & the restaurant which were both awesome. Every morning of our stay we had breakfast & we were welcomed like it was our restaurant, food was great, service even better. The hostess offered us a map of sights to see & things to do with the kids since we were unfamiliar with the area, she even brought my daughter a muffin with a candle in it since it was her 4th birthday. She was thrilled!. A perk would be a fridge in the room, otherwise a perfect stay!

Very nice for a Holiday Inn. Staff was helpful and attentive. Great location with a short walk to lots of great restaurants. Elevators were super slow but that could have been due to a convention going on there.

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.
