Great downtown location for stayng in Knoxville


March 27, 2015


Although a bit long in the tooth, this hotel is very convenient to downtown Knoxville and the market common. The rooms are a bit small but nicely furnished with a nice large flat screen TV. The bed was very comfortable. There was a refrigerator in the room but no microwave. The bathroom had a great walk-in shower but the sink was set at a 45 degree angle to the corner of the bathroom with 2 mirrors at right angles to each other and at a 45 degree angle to anyone standing facing the sink. This may be some interior designers' idea of innovative design, but it's not great for shaving! On the other hand, the shower has a shaving mirror on the wall opposite to the showerhead. We didn't try the restaurant or lounge, but there lots and lots of eateries of various kinds within a short walk of the hotel. We only tried a few given our short stay, but all the ones we tried were a great experience.

Great bed and wonderful service personnel


March 20, 2015


The valet chased us down in the parking garage to tell us he had a parking place for us right by the hotel lobby entrance - that was above and beyond the call of duty!
The front desk staff was also very helpful - they made change, gave us directions, and held a coat to be picked up by another guest!
Above and beyond as far as service!!
