Stayed for New Years Eve, great room, excellent customer service. the only issue was trying to get a shuttle ride back to the hotel from the Old City, called 5 times and waited for 1-1/2 hours to get a ride back. maybe plan better next year and have an extra shuttle or two available on busy nights like this.

I stayed here numerous times in the 80's sometimes nearly 20 nights a month. I enjoyed the hot tub and sauna. I also enjoyed the bar and bar food back then.
Friday night I didn't go to the bar. The hot tub is GONE.
The sauna is GONE. The newest feature is GO GREEN. I didn't like it. It took forever to get the temperature right. The room was like a meat locker when we got there and my wife froze her butt off. Then the "parking". It never used to cost. Why now? It was free for many years but now it is a required cost to your room. The nice employee credited me when I told him I didn't park in the garage. The employees there were wonderful.
flat screen tvs, location, exercise room, indoor pool were all great!!

Overall - great place. Just ask for a room opposite the main street. Windows On the Park Restaurant / Lounge is great for a family to eat (kids eat free with adults) and atmosphere!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dwegg33 Excellent service...friendly staff
I honestly have never written a review before BUT I really feel I need to. I spent the weekend in Knoxville by myself and it was raining and freezing. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful. i love the shuttle down to the restaurants and shopping street and a simple call and they came straight away and brought me back to the hotel.
I asked for an extra blanket and it was brought straight up. I needed my phone charged (I left my charger at home) and they sent one up to me.
Anything I needed it was delt with straight away. It really made my whole stay a great experience. Well done Holiday Inn...the staff should be commended.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DannyT Staff has no clue
I had an enjoyable weekend visiting with my grandkids. When it came time to leave is when there were issues. We brought several large boxes of clothes for the kids and needed a luggage cart to haul them back down to the car. NONE to be found. The staff could not locate them either. They told us they only had TWO for the whole facility. I had to load the boxes on the hotel desk chair to wheel them down. At one point (I spent over a half hour looking for/waiting on a cart) The Staff thought my situation was FUNNY!! Will never stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shellybucks Overpriced, but our only choice. Everywhere else was fully booked! They knew we would have to pay such an outrageous price!!
My husband had lost his wedding band while staying there.
I've called several times to speak to someone in housekeeping.
I've left numerous messages, and spoken to the people at the front desk! No one will even call me back to let me know if they've found anything. I would appreciate at least some kind of response either way!!

We stayed here for the UT-Auburn game last weekend. The remodel is excellent! The hotel looks fantastic, what a great job! The staff was so friendly from the front desk, Leah and Victoria to the bar service and Bree who served us breakfast in the bar area, she was terrific! Loved the location and how you can walk everywhere and loved the free shuttle that took us to our restaurant. Great job everyone, we are coming back!!

We have stayed at your hotel in the past and found the same wonderful service from all your staff once again. Definitely our "go to" hotel when we stay in Knoxville.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cowgirl2 Nice Stay!
Nice place, great location, clean hotel, good service. Glad I chose this place for my conference at the convention center! Couldn't get closer. Seemed to have more open spaces to meet and dine in restaurant and lobby areas than a nearby competitor where other friends were staying. Room was nice. Road noise was an issue at night - I was on the 5th floor facing road (not river). A friend said it was loud on her 9th floor, but she said it was worse in my room. You heard sirens and revving engines that passed, but I slept fine otherwise. I would recommend it and return. Knoxville was great! Close walk to Market area.

What a delightful stay at your property. Everything from the moment I arrived to the time I left, the stay was wonderful. How refreshing it is to say " A great experience was had". From the staff, the location, the room, the food and beverage, and management made you feel comfortable.

Each member of the staff was friendly and helpful. They always had a cheery greeting and asked if they could help. The room was very comfortable too, and in spite of the full capacity, it was very quiet. I would definitely stay there again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hotrod1614 Out of date rooms
The hotel is going green to save on electric but the windows are way out of date. We had to turn the heat way up to compensate for the cold air blowing in thru the windows. With all the new technology that is available, one would think there would be more channels on the TV to watch since there is nothing to do within waling distance. It would also be nice to have a comfortable bed and a mini fridge in the room. The pool was very lame and boring.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frosted Heating did not work
The room has a heat / AC unit controller on the wall that is actuated by placing your door key in a slot, this is supposed to conserve energy. Unfortunately, I could control the fan with my key inserted on the slot,; but, regardless of what temperature setting that I made on the control unit, the air handler NEVER blew warm air. It was near 30 degrees both nights that i was in the room, supposedly this was looked into after the first night, but I had the same results on the second night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WV57 Staff is great
I was there for two nights. The first night, the neighbors were loud and obnoxious despite the manager's attempt to have them quiet down. The following day, I was moved to a very nice room in a much quieter hallway. The staff was wonderful and very understanding. They even adjusted my bill for the loud night. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It was very comfortable and clean!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weed52 Outside noise and bar food service
Firehall near property kept waking me up at all hours. I know that's not a hotel,problem, but maybe look into some type of noise reduction system in rooms on side of hotel closest to Firehall.
Ordered supper in hotel bar one night, it took 45 minutes to recieve a club sandwhich. I think Holiday Inn can do better.
Overall we recieved many compliments from our TGA membership regarding the hotel accomendations and staff.
Se you next year.

I was able to take my staff of 19 to a conference and we stayed at this location. In the three days we were there, we grew to know the desk clerks, the shuttle drivers, the wait staff, and the housekeeping staff by name! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and would highly recommend this hotel to everyone!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 4boysandme Great for UT games!
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Worlds Fair Park for the Tennessee/Georgia football game and it was WONDERFUL. The staff was incredible. Very helpful, knowledgeable and always had a smile. The hotel looks brand new and is very clean and inviting. I don't think we have ever stayed in a hotel that was this accommodating to football fans. Immediately upon check-in you receive a paper listing all of the events at the hotel for the game, a schedule and details about the shuttle. The breakfast (especially the omelets!) were delicious but the best part the morning of the game was the huge bloody mary bar. The hotel shuttle took us (and picked us up) wherever we needed to go...even letting us stop along the way to grab extra supplies for the game before continuing to drop us off at our tailgate spot. Although this weekend was centered around the football game, the hallways were never loud and rambunctious, there were many families with young children and college-age kids, and the hotel maintained a great balance of class, entertainment, comfort and safety. The hotel is in walking distance of restaurants, the stadium, shopping and quick access to the highway. We will stay here every time we visit Knoxville!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KLauren23 Terrible Bar Service
We recently stayed at this hotel during a game weekend and received some of the worst bar service I've ever had. Especially in a hotel. We first sat down for happy hour at the hotel bar and were given great service by a server named Sam and then a server named Alexandra came in and stood behind the bar talking about her new "plum" lipstick while we were waiting for drinks. Sam was busy with the other customers and setting up for the night and this girl Alexandra refused to do anything productive or help anyone. She was leaning against the counter behind the bar with her arms crossed. Another person joined our group and waited 20 minutes for a drink when there were only two other people at the bar besides us. When we asked her a question about the local area we were basically sassed and made to feel stupid for asking.
Then a couple next to us asked for potato chips, Alexandra filled their bowl, tossed it on the bar, then filled her mouth with chips from the same bag, and put the bag back in the cabinet behind the bar.
We felt that we were singled out, being that we were younger than most people at the hotel this weekend, (being in our early 30s,) but we are IHG Rewards Club Members who are very well traveled and this was absolutely unacceptable
We spent two nights at the hotel and both nights were the same thing with this girl. The other bartenders were even talking about her behind her back TO the customers at the bar.
If it weren't for this experience, I would absolutely recommend this hotel to other people. It was clean, convenient, and the location is great. If Alexandra were not there, this weekend would have been MUCH better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kakers Fantastic hotel! Will return!
We booked this hotel through Hotels.com a month or two in advance. We were able to get a GREAT deal by doing so. We decided to stay here because of its close location to Neyland Stadium. It's just a short walk away. There is also shuttle service available if you choose. We chose to ride to the stadium then walk back. Our driver that morning could have been a bit more cheerful & personable. I'm not sure he cracked a smile the entire time. We also decided to take the shuttle to Calhoun's on the River that evening & our driver that time was a delight. He was very friendly & a delight to talk to. I wish I would have gotten his name. Everyone at the hotel was helpful & pleasant to deal with even while being swamped because of football game. Our room had what they called a "city view". & oh what a view it was. It was toward Henley & yes we could hear all of the traffic & firetrucks that ran all night, but for the view, it was worth it. Every morning you could see the most beautiful sunrise.
The bed was extremely comfortable & the pillows were amazing. I instantly missed them upon our return home. The only real "complaint" I would have is that we were in a handicap room which meant it had a "roll in" shower. This was nice because of the openness, but also bad because of the same. No matter what we tried to do to prevent it, water would flood the bathroom floor every time we showered. Not too big of a deal because we'd just clean it up with the extra towels, but with the hotel pushing being "Green" & reusing towels, this didn't seem to work with that plan. Oh, & this may seem silly, but the toilets are incredibly...loud. I kept hearing strange noises in the night, then we determined that we could hear our neighbors flushing. Strange, but true.
Overall, we loved our experience at this hotel & have decided that when we come back to Knoxville, we will definitely being staying here again!
