Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2012 via mobile

I stayed here almost 20 years ago and remembered the hotel as a decent choice. It now has to be thee choice in downtown hotels. Close to most things. Great bar. Modern everything. Definitely a solid stay.

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park in Knoxville, Tn on October 19, 2012 till October 22, 2012. We have never enjoyed a motel as much as we did this one. The service was great in every venue of the hotel. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the front door and every employee's only concern was were we enjoying ouselves and could they help in anyway. The room was very clean and the bed and pillows were extra comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and the selection was very good and the presentation of the food made it an unforgetable dining experience. The staff in the bar area were very attentive to our needs and they made sure you enjoyed the cocktails. I highly reccomend this hotel if you are in the Knoxville area.

Room Tip: We stayed in an exectutive suite and the service on that floor was second to none.

We just got back from a 2 night stay. We really enjoyed our visit to this hotel. We were in town for a football game. You cannot beat the location. There is a nice playground behind the hotel (part of Worlds Fair Park) that my kids loved. We were headed out to walk to the stadium when a worker saw us and our two small children and told us about the free shuttle. He went out of his way to show us where we needed to go to get on which I thought was really nice. We ate a small snack at the restaurant before the game and we found the prices to be affordable for a hotel restaurant. They had a decent selection of beers too. We would definitely stay here again when in Knoxville.

Received a great deal on Expedia Unpublished Rate for this downtown hotel. Didn't find any faults with the room or staff. Very clean modern room, and very quiet to be in downtown! All staff we encountered were very professional. Only negative is the hotel charges $8 per night for parking. I know many downtown hotels do, but in Knoxville downtown I know that Marriott and Crowne Plaza do not charge for parking!

Check in was very smooth, the staff were very helpful! The room is very clean, they sanitize remotes, door knobs, etc after every visitor to the room! The only problem...the elevator from the garage wasn't working and we were not told in advance so luggage had to be toted through the garage and across parking lanes.

We have a daughter at UT and this is our first choice hotel. The front desk people are always courteous and quick. The rooms are clean and a nice size. I like that they have an underground parking garage. It's within easy walking distance of the UT campus and Market Square. Great hotel for football games or any other event. The only drawback is the restaurant. It's ok, but over priced, especially the breakfast buffet. The omelet/waffle bar is good and the servers are excellent.

Highly recommended for business travelers to Knoxville area. Excellent service great location. Easy access to highway and also to the downtown. I particularly enjoyed the downtown area and had a great view of the world's fair park. There are many restaurants with in walking distance.

There were redoing the main floor restaurant when I was there so I can not comment on the quality of the food. They were offering buffet lunch that was pretty good off the the side of the main restaurant.
