Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ZetaLady27 Overall Great Experience
I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. I had breakfast at the restaurant. Good food. A bit overpriced but food and service were excellent. We used the hotel's shuttle on Friday evening and Saturday and found the drivers to be very friendly and helpful, even giving us some history about some of the landmarks in the area. The only downfall as far as I am concerned is the hot tub is no longer in the pool area. They had one when I stayed there before so I was a bit disappointed to see it was no longer there. Room clean and comfortable. I would be happy to stay at this hotel again. Overall "A"

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by missy3 Good location and great service
My family stayed here for the State Swim Meet and the service started before we even arrived. I called the morning of our arrival to request the rooms to be close, only to find only one room had been reserved. In my panic, the front desk attendant, I think his name was James, reassured me and quickly found another room that had just become available. He didn't have to do that and he certainly didn't have to be so understanding . Upon arrival the reception was warm and helpful. The shuttle service was remarkable. I remember only one persons name- Niles, he was professional and knew the area well. All of the other drivers were wonderful too. Thanks for making our stay great!

Was not able to check into the hotel until after 4pm because quests before us did not leave at scheduled check out time so the room was delayed in being cleaned.. Other then this minor set back our stay was pleasant and will stay at Holiday Inn again..

I can honestly say that The Holiday Inn Knoxville Dwtnworlds Fair Pk absolutely had the best staff and overall service of ANY hotel I have stayed in. The front desk was courteous and kind-even though it was after 11 when I arrived. The room was clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable- great pillows! The next morning I chose to eat breakfast in the hotel and chose the breakfast buffet. The hostess was more than attentive, wait staff was friendly and thoughtful-offering before I even thought to ask. The food was acceptable and the only negative about the entire experience was that the cost of the meal exceeded the value. however, the convenience of the lobby restaurant was a plus. Thank you- when I am back in Knoxville, I will definitely stay with you again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jlbmountains great location, comfortable bed and service was excellent
We stayed in a suite and it was very spacious. 2 rooms, 2 full baths, 1 room was bedroom with a king size bed and the other room was liv room with a pull out bed in the couch, sink, microwave and fridge.
We were in Knoxville to celebrate our son's birthday, he is a professor at UT. We have stayed at other hotels in the area but we feel this is the best priced for the location.
We definitely will be returning for another stay at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DawnB Great hotel!
We stopped at this hotel because we were stuck in a snow/ice storm and needed a place at the last minute. Staff was great and our room was wonderful. The only negative was the food in the restaurant. It was a Thursday night and the buffet was the only option. The food tasted like it was reheated from the freezer. However, it was not enough to keep me from staying at this hotel again. The location was great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Billwill nice room, poor resteraunt
Everything was great except for the resteraunt. We went to eat Saturday night and were told only the buffet was available. The buffet did not look appealing and was not being adequately refilled as many dishes were almost empty and some of the food had obviously been sitting out for a long time. We then saw other patrons eating food that had not come from the buffet. Asked about this and were told that it was up to our server if they wanted to allow us to order off the menu.We decided not to deal with such a dysfunctional policy and went to eat elsewhere. I asked to speak with the hotel manager as we left but was told he/she had stepped out and was unavailable. I was never contacted about the issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Porker Great bar
Very nice and centrally located. Bar is beautiful and service there is excellent.
We had zero service, literally, in the restaurant one evening. We finally partook of the pretty good buffet and had to leave cash on the table since our server never showed up. My fear is that he pocketed the cash since a ticket had never been made. No return trips to the restaurant I'll order tapas at the bar.

My wife and I spent one weekday night here prior to her surgery at Ft. Sauders Hospital. The rate was great. The staff was most helpful including a coutersy ride to and from a local resaurant. I used to travel for a living and The locatiob (across from the convention center and near Market Square) and amenities rate it very high. Recommend highly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Poco ALL RIGHT BUT
Some people sleep late. I didn't see a time when people should get out of their room to get it cleaned up. A couple of days, my husand sleep in and didn't leave the room until about 12:00. We didn't get cleaned up.
I suggest putting signs on the floors asking visitors to closes the doors quietly.
Several of us got very tired of the buffet in the dining room. Need to tell them about the limited menu if the buffet is kept.
I know its not your's to deal with, but the freezing temps in the area where the show it, was very uncomfortable. Could you please say something to them about temps for next January for us.
The different people that did take care of us on the floors and elsewhere in the building were very nice. Candace in the dining room was the best. She servered us in '12 as well.

I have stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world, I have to say that this hotel Staff and Service is 5 Stars! They are an extremely professional and trained staff that goes out of there way to accommodate your needs.
The hotel itself is one of the cleanest I have ever stayed in. Even corners of the hallways are clean!
I think the manager and his staff at this hotel deserve an award!
Great Hotel, highly recommended!

My recent stay was great. The hotel is restored to its former glory. New bar and restaurant are very inviting and the staff is great. Rooms have been updated and are very comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay. I have been staying at this location for 15 years so I am glad to see it updated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Francine145 Everything was excellent or good - restaurant note
We ate breakfast there and supper. The food was good, but I did not appreciate the tip being put on the bill. I know we did not have to pay that part, but it was totaled like part of the food and drink bill. So, if I hadn't looked over the bill I might have left a tip also. The service was good, but not that good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Always a pleasure
I stay at this hotel at least once a year, every year. The staff is always a sheer pleasure, and the service spectacular. On.y downside is the rooms are a touch small. Otherwise they have the utmost attention to detail and are quick to assist with most every (reasonable) request!
Will continue to bring my business here

The front desk is very friendly and will accommodate any of your reasonable needs very quickly. The hotel is walking distance to market square (downtown), old city, and the University of Tennessee. If you prefer not to walk, there is a hotel shuttle that will take you anywhere relatively close to the hotel. I have had nothing but great stays at this location.

I was welcomed and inprocessed promptly. I was also recognized as a Platinum Card member and was immediately given a room upgrade. This property is beautifully updated and is close to the area where my business was taking place. I have stayed here many times before and I will return as often as I can. Highly recommended.

One of the best we have stayed in. The staff was fantastic. New upgrades make this one of the nicest hotels in the area. Location was great and exploring downtown was very easy from here. Spend the extra and get the executive floor and ask for a non-street side room.

From the time we checked in the staff with excellent. The clerk at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. They also provided a shuttle to our destination and back to the hotel. And the front desk clerk provided us with a map to avoid the road construction that was going on close to the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ClaraBell Good but expensive place to stay near UT campus during football season
My family and I stay at this hotel usually every 2 years since 1982 when attending the UT/Alabama football game. We have stayed at 3 other hotels -- one now torn down -- but have decided that jacked up room price during football season, it is really the best place to stay to be close to the UT campus. The hotel has good shuttle service to the campus and surrounding area attractions and this year upgraded its bar area which is very nice. A coffee service has also been added in the gift shop which is nice. The rooms are average hotel rooms but clean and plenty of towels and hot water The staff are very courteous. For those in good shape, it is actually within walking distance of the stadium, campus and local eateries. We will continue to stay here when we come to Knoxville.

We flew into Knoxville downtown and requested shuttle service to the hotel. Within 10 minutes, the shuttle was at the airport for our pick-up. Upon check-in, we were greeted by a very warm and accommodating staff that surpassed our expectations. The hotel was so nice, we extended our stay for another night. During our stay, the staff was happy to provide shuttle service to the Knoxville zoo for our family and provide excellent recommendations on dining options in Knoxville. If you fly in to Knoxville Downtown, stay at this Holiday Inn. You will not be disappointed.
