The hotel was built in a great location, but the rooms were outdated and too small,the shower flooded the bathroom, and the windows were way too small. I stayed for the Academic Games National Tournament. It was good, but could be improved. Nice pool

The hotel location is great! I walked to Market Square nightly for dinner, and the walk was less than 5 minutes. The hotel is dated, but the service provided distracted me from the dated appearance. I stayed in the "Summit Suite" on the executive floor. The nightly executive

We love staying at the Crowne Plaza. Perfect spot for exploring downtown Knoxville. Park the car and just use the trolley service or walk. Perfect for weekend getaways. Old Towne is a 5 minute walk and Market Square is even closer. Lots to explore in Knoxville.

The whole staff at Crowne Plaza Knoxville Downtown University is top shelf. Mandy is exceptional and can be considered a go-to person in terms of knowing what to do and where to go in downtown Knoxville. She also makes a 2nd2none gin and tonic!

Good hotel, nice location - close to many restaurants and bars. Would recommend. Staff is polite. Could be a little bit noisy, but it's not that bad. They do not offer shuttle bus service to/from the airport

What’s the difference between the executive room vs the standard?
The Executive rooms are on the top floor and are only accessible with your room key in the elevator. There is a lounge area with snacks set out during the morning and evening hours. The paper is also available for you to read. The rooms are a little nicer but not that much different. Also, some times when you book the executive rooms they come with breakfast vouchers for the buffet downstairs.

Can we walk to Theatre Knoxville from the hotel?
Yes definitely - parking in town is a real pain so leave your car at the hotel and walk - I hope you have a great time!

Are there smoking rooms available? I've seen yes and I've seen no....
I do not think that there are smoking rooms, but the hotel does provide a smoking area for their guests, my wife is a smoker so I can tell you that they are located on the ground floor at the corners of the building and away from the main entrances to the building
