Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I am here for the Tennessee Motor Coach convention. The hotel is right next to the convention center. They offer great rate and the staff is very friendly. The lobby is very nice with a cozy little fireplace. They also have a free shuttle which runs in a 3 mile radius. The rooms are very nice and spacious, and i would recommend anyone traveling to Knoxville to stay here.

I recently spent five days here for a dog show. Very pleasant property in good location (about a ten-minute walk to the heart of downtown), the rooms are clean and well-planned, and the staff is friendly. My biggest complaint would be about the food in the restaurant - it is not great. A good alternative if you don't have time to walk in to town is to eat at the bar, which is very attractive and has good "snacks" and sandwiches, etc.

Room Tip: Request a room on the park side of the building.

Everything about the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park is top-notch. The rooms are great, the restaurant and bar are very nice (especially since the recent renovations) and the staff is among the best I've seen in a long time. I would highly recommend staying here. I love the location as well. The downtown market area with its many great restaurants/bars is within walking distance to the east (you really need to go to Cafe 4 and Downtown Grill & Brewery), and the UT campus is within walking distance to the west. If you're not into walking, that's OK because the hotel offers shuttle services as well. This is one of the finest hotles I've stayed at in quite a while.

The rooms here are spacious and well equipped. Great place to hose any event. Hotels shuttle service is great and will take you to restaurants in the city. Parking handy in the basement for a fee but worth it. The best part however in my opinion was the wonderful service from friendly and concerned staff. Every one from the desk to the cleaning crew was helpful and went out of their way to be helpful. All should take lessons from this hotel.
The small concession just past the lobby has great food. Reasonable prices for prepackaged salads and sandwiches which were fresh and delicious. Some breakfast items available along with drinks of coffee, tea or soft drinks all day. The restaurant in the hotel wasn't my favorite. Because of the high volume of people present they had gone to a limited menu with a buffet available. Though that was overpriced with a poor selection. There sandwich and burger menu were very good but not what we really wanted for a supper.

The Holiday Inn sits off busy Henley Street on the western fringe of downtown Knoxville right across from World's Fair Park. Once you negotiate the six lane divided Henley going east, you are in the more sedate streets of downtown. Walk west and soon you will be at UT. The hotel is a high rise with an attractive lobby, friendly staff and garage parking that they charge for, even if you are a top Priority Club member (seems like a lousy PR move on their part for $8--but no big deal). The rooms are spacious but bathrooms are surprisingly tiny. All amenities are there. We enjoyed the Holiday Inn but like the Marriott on the other side of downtown a bit better. If you get a good rate here or generally like Holiday Inns, book with no worries.

It was very nice, very convenient and very friendly. We normally make our annual trip and stay on the interstates but this trip we went into town to find a place to stay just so we could walk around downtown. The room was clean and had more than enough outlets to accomodate our computers, etc. Plenty of towels. Parking was under ground and plentiful.

A curtesy van will take you down town and pick you up.

The hotel was large and grand but we missed the free breakfasts you find in the hotel/motels catering to the through travelers. Also there was no refrigerator in the room which we have become a custom too.

All and all it was a nice stay and if you want to visit downtown I would recommend it.
