This is by far the best Holiday Inn in the US! Staff is nice and accommodating, great bar and restaurant. Even the maid staff is friendly and allows asking what they can do for the guest. Stay here every time I'm in the area. Keep up the good work.

It's a good hotel. Nice staff. Recently updated. Clean. Our 4th floor room was noisy with traffic from street ad the air didn't work in the room. Pool is small, pictures are generous. But there is one indoors. And it's walking distance from everything. It's not bad... it's just not a 5 star.

Wonderful stay! The location is great and the downtown area is easily accessible walking. One really great thing was Michael, morning matradee on the 11th floor. He kept us up on some of the most unique places in the area to visit. The Sunsphere from the Worlds Fair is a nice attraction just down from the hotel. My wife loved...

My wife and I love this location. We walked to the Market Square and its many Food, drink and music venues. That is only 5-7 minutes away. Add another 5 minutes and we walked the Historic Old City District. The hotel itself has safe, enclosed, self parking beneath the property. The lobby is large, well maintained and inviting. The front...

There is lots to like. Great location, great rate, free parking for my Saturday night stay, large room with nice view, etc. Easy walk to Market Square for great restaurants and shops. I asked for a quiet room as I always do but my room was still LOUD. Lot's of traffic noise and talking next door. However, I always carry...

I can honestly say I was not 100% pleased with this hotel. The convenience to the Convention Center was a plus but that was about it. Upon arrival there was some confusion with my reservations. I had made the reservations months in advance but they didn't seem to have it in their system even though I had a copy of...

My husband brought me to Knoxville on his business trip. So besides having some office work to do from the hotel room I had time to explore your lovely city. To our surprise and delight, while staying on the 11th floor of your hotel, we were met by Michael! He is in charge of the breakfast service for the 11th...

Horrible check in. They put us in wheelchair accessible room when we requested a king with sofa bed and a crib. 2 little ones, no tub in the wheelchair accessible!? They said all rooms are full. This mama was not very happy. Finally they put us in a 2 double with a bathtub. Better than without a bathtub. On a...

Dear JFJF06, A big thank you for your kind words on our pool, sumptuous breakfast options, service from our dining staff, and convenient location. However, I'm sorry to learn about the unavailability of the room that you've initially booked that negatively affected your experience. It is good to know though that you were moved to another room with a bathtub...

We have stayed numerous times while visiting UT. Great location to Market Square and the University. Very clean, great service from the front desk to every staff member we see. The best omelettes in town and we must mention a very special gentleman Varnel who service goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. He remembers you every visit....
