Pet friendly, great location, great staff


May 25, 2015


We took our dog and the staff were all friendly toward her. The location is great for eating, drinking, night walks and a near by dog park. The restaurant is priced right for a nice hotel and they serve great quality so the extra cost is worth it. Most of all, we've stayed there before and the staff remembered us!

Dowown Knoxville at its Finest


May 23, 2015

If you have to see anyone off to the military basic training facilities please stay at this hotel. The facilities are fantastic and you can walk to Market Square where there are restaurants and shops galore.
Though the reason for our stay was bittersweet in that we were sending our youngest off to the Navy, the stay was a great memory we will always have with her.
I cannot think of a better send off for a loved one.
Thank you so much Crowne Plaza for supporting our military in this way.

Stay in Knoxville


May 22, 2015


The only real complaint I had was when i had to park in the lower deck as you come up the stairwell to get to the hotel all the smokers congregated there at the top of the stairs to smoke and when you walk through that you smell like a ashtray.
