We stayed here for a weekend in Knoxville as I was speaking at some workshops. My wife and 2 year old toddler came along for the trip. We arrived late at night and the front desk staff were very courteous -- the friendliness of Southern hospitality I guess.
As requested, a playpen/crib was waiting for us in the room. The room had all the amenities one would expect of a "nice" Hilton. The bed was comfortable, the sheets clean and soft, and the bathroom was elegant and high quality.
The hotel is located within walking distance of some cool areas of downtown Knoxville and the neighborhood felt quite safe. I took my boy in the stroller for several walks in the blocks surround the hotel. The hotel also has some comfortable seating areas on the first floor as well as a starbucks coffee cart and a nice patio/courtyard outside.
One of the best things about this hotel: free wifi! It was a strong signal in our room as well as in the lobby areas. Despite being a major brand hotel, I was happy they didn't try to charge us some crazy amount (or any amount) for internet service when smaller/cheaper chains offer it for free. This is not what I'd typically expect from a major/large hotel chain... but maybe it is because the market is Knoxville TN?
All in all, it was a pleasant stay and the staff were great. No complaints and would recommend to others.
