Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I haven't been in Knoxville since the Worlds fair and am very pleased to see how everything has changed and how beautiful the hotel is and right beside the space ball building, so beautiful.
I got some great pictures. The pool is on the second floor and we were on the 11th floor which served breakfast and made us feel really special. Great place!

This was my second time to stay at this hotel. I have to say they really know what they're doing! The first trip was for business, this trip was for pleasure (Dolly Parton concert). EVERYTHING, right down to the shuttle drivers, was A+! The staff is so accommodating and helpful, and the property itself is positioned amongst some great attractions. So glad we had time to walk around and see some sights this time. A beautiful area in a beautiful city! I would recommend this hotel to anyone, for any reason. Thanks for making this trip even more memorable for us!

Room Tip: Just pick one, you can't go wrong.

We stayed here on a stop-over night as we began our road trip of Tennessee. Front desk service was excellent. Having complimentary parking was awesome. The hotel was recently renovated/re-decorated and it's lovely. Our room was awesome, with a comfortable king bed, plenty of pillows and quiet all night - in spite of the hotel being packed for university graduation.

The location, for our purposes, was great. We walked to the Market Square and enjoyed a cool beverage (actually, more than 1!!) on one of the many patios, browsed the shops and then had dinner. It was a great way to unwind after a long day in the car.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your very kind comments. We feel our location central to downtown and the University of Tennessee and the comfort of the hotel are second to none.

We are thrilled you enjoyed the hotel and glad that you could get out and explore the sites and experience Market Square.

If I can ever be of assistance on future visits, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best,

We arrived for early checking but were told there were no rooms available until after three. We were there for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society Team in Training taking part in the REV 3 Triathalon. We walked to Market Square and had lunch at a Farm to table restaurant that was very good. I cannot remember the name if it though. It was on a corner of the square.
We checked in at 3:30pm and were given a room on the Executive Floor with a great view overlooking the World's Fair Park and Sunsphere. Included in our room rate was a continental breakfast which included fresh waffles, fresh fruit, pastries, yougurt, granola, bagels and toast and juice. There was a gentleman with the hotel that made and served the waffles to order. Eggs of some kind would have made this a great breakfast. The room was a large King room with great toiletries from my favorit Bath and Body Works. I would return to the hotel IF I had to return to Knoxville. Nothing else to see but the Square and the college.

Room Tip: Executive floor facing the park if they will include it in your best price.

We are so pleased the you enjoyed your stay at Holiday Inn World's Fair Park. The Rev3 Triathlon is something that we all look forward to every year in Knoxville.

It is unfortunate you didn't have sufficient time to experience all that Knoxville has to offer. While Market Square and UT are among some highlights, there is so much more. We have the Knoxville Zoo and the Botanical Gardens. There is minor league hockey and baseball. There are a myriad of outdoor sports within easy walking or drive distance. There is history, a vibrant music scene, and other eclectic entertainment districts. There are theaters, cultural venues and the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. In short, you just scratched the surface.

We encourage you to stop in at Visit Knoxville's Visitor's Center or ask one of our well-versed team members on your next visit to town. Please let me know if I can ever be of assistance with future reservations.

Best,

Marc B. Bauer
General Manager

Stayed 5 days for my granddaughter graduation at UT, the beds are fine , pillows we horrible, the room service was embarrassing .we ordered breakfast only half of the order made it to the room and it was cold, it took them another 20 mins to get it right. But there area you couldn't ask for a better location close to everything including Market Square where there are many great restaurants

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It is always our goal to not only meet but exceed expectations.

With that in mind, please accept my apologies for the inconsistencies experienced during your visit. Pillow comfort is certainly an important aspect of a good night's sleep which is why we carry a number of different pillow sizes and varying degrees of softness. We are always happy to find a solution that meets with your satisfaction.

Your room service experience is of great concern to me. Without all of the details it is difficult to ascertain just where the breakdown occurred and how we put measures in place to preclude a similar occurrence in the future. I would love to speak with you personally about your entire experience and welcome you to call my office directly at 865.523.0695.

I assure you the circumstances surrounding your visit are the exception and not the norm and I look forward to the opportunity to once again earn your business.

Best,

Marc B. Bauer
General Manager

This is my third visit to the downtown Knoville Hotel! Excellent staff, Marcus and Rusty! The General Manager has greeted me all three visits. Total hands on manager! They go out of their way to help me each time I visit! Rooms are comfortable and quiet! Love the restaurant staff, I honestly do like to walk to the square for variety. There pasta dishes are awesome though!

Room Tip: I do prefer the rooms facing opposite the entrance
