Excellent Value and Amenities


18 April 2015


I have stayed at this hotel every time I travel through Knoxville. I first stayed here last summer (2014) and the hotel was undergoing renovations to its main entrance. This hotel is one of the best Crowne Plazas that I have stayed in. The staff is very knowledgeable and courteous.

Best stay I’ve ever had


17 April 2015


We drove up to the Crowne Plaza Hotel, the staff was there to greet us and take our bags immediately. The front desk treats you like family, in fact the whole staff in the hotel in amazing.
They are very close to Market Street and the restaurants there are fantastic, and within walking distance. If you happen to be a beer drinker they have a lot of pubs within walking distance also. I highly recommend anyone who is in Knoxville, Tennessee to stay at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. I’ve stayed at five star hotels and I think they could take some lessons from the Crown Plaza.

Great experience, close to downtown, safe. Centrally located easy access to University, downtown, events, restaurants. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. The Hotel was recently updated. Restaurant discount for patrons made meals a great deal.
