Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FOOTBALL TIME in TENN. Rooms are very comfortable an great views. Close to market square an many good resturants. I would definitely stay again. Only negative is price on game weekend. A little expensive but very NICE . November 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and location Upon arrival I was greeted attentively by the Valet staff. They assisted me to check-in which went very well. I was very pleased with the location and amenities in my room. The "little" extras really made a difference in my stay. I usually have trouble sleeping in hotels because of noise but not here. Very quiet. The bartender that evening was friendly and timely with service. The food from the restaurant was prepared as ordered and excellent. Check-out was easy and again the Valet staff was helpful with directions to my first business meeting location. I have discovered my place to stay when in Knoxville. November 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice downtown hotel with helpful staff Had a nice three day visit. The breakfasts and a dinner were excellent. The staff was very helpful. One minor problem with the TV was fixed in minutes. Good place for a visit. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location! Great location. Very close to UTK and lots of restaurants. Staff was very attentive. Value is excellent. November 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff and good fitness room This is not my first visit to this property and it won't be my last. The friendly staff greeted us with an enthusiastic smile and were prompt at check-in. The hotel is centrally located in downtown, close to the University of Tennessee campus. Their fitness facility is very good compared to other hotels I use. November 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent experience everytime Every time I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Knoxville it has been an excellent experience. November 20, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not so great Found old sheets with a lighter waded up in them. There was something spilled all over the door frame of the closet and the shower was not clean, lets just say. Not that impressed. November 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel I enjoyed my stay at this hotel for a conference. Parking was very convenient. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Someone in the restaurant actually went and got my friend and I a cup of coffee (free!) one afternoon when we inquired about the availability of coffee. He also made a second trip back to get some milk for us too. The room was comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel. November 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel, great location Great beautiful hotel, very clean, great location to stay for downtown shopping and eating . Market Place is a must and it is just across the street. Room and bathroom was very clean. Staff was excellent. Would stay here again. November 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oasis in Downtown Knoxville Wonderful place to stay! The staff was friendly and welcoming upon check-in. They were very helpful and attentive whenever they were needed (I was there for a business conference and I overheard the same attitude with those helping out at the conference). I'd recommend the Crowne Plaza if you're in Knoxville. It was a wonderful experience because of the personnel, the location and the condition and feel of the hotel. November 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel, great location Have stayed several times at this location. Very nice rooms, friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere. November 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice! The staff was very helpful. I liked my room, and the room service was very good, and decently priced, so I was able to stay in my room and eat when I didn't feel like eating at the restaurant downstairs. My bed was comfy, and I liked the view. Anytime I go to Knoxville, this is where I'll stay. November 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Staff Everyone I encountered at the hotel, from bellman to housekeeping were friendly and professional. The room was larger than expected and the guest bath with glass shower was much better than a regular shower curtain. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean room and comfortable bed The hotel was clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable and we slept like we were at home. Enjoyed the stay. Would recommend to others. There are a lot of places to eat and shop in the area. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Place to stay In my week stay i found that this hotel was the best place to stay . Very clean and great people ,grounds was very nice. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful staff! I LOVED the staff! Absolutely everyone that worked at the Crowne Plaza was incredibly helpful and sweet-natured. The room was clean and it was fairly quiet at night. I thought the bed was too hard, but other people at our conference loved the ultra firm bed. I was a little surprised that the crown moulding in our room was gapping from the ceiling. It looked like I did the trim carpentry in there. But the room was clean and the thermostat worked well so the room stayed a comfortable temperature. The view of downtown Knoxville was breathtaking. We had a lovely time. Thanks everyone at Crowne Plaza for helping make our trip a success! November 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location with excellent amenities! Riding thru Knoxville on my motorcycle and wanted a location near downtown. This hotel met all my expectations, very good experience and extremely friendly staff in all areas. November 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Services The establishment had EXCELLENT services and the staff was more than pleasant and helpful at all times. This Hotel is in a great location of Knoxville. Close to anything you might want to do downtown and at the University. Will definitely stay here again. November 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful pet friendly hotel We came from Ky for my niece's wedding and brought our Morky with us. They all loved her and acknowledged her when we would take her out for bathroom visits. She had one accident in the hall one day while the cleaning ladies were making their rounds--it was my fault because she did try to go the elevator--and they were so kind about it. We saw several pets with their owners while we were there and would definitely go back since they do allow pets there. Pet deposits were reasonable. Loved our stay there!!!!! November 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly and Comfortable My wife and I enjoyed our weekend stay at your hotel. The room was great and the staff very accommodating. November 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Thin walls and lousy food. Thin walls made for a restless sleep and the food was lousy. Other than that it was a pretty average hotel. November 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel! Nice hotel. was pleased with everything except the check in. I booked weeks in advance and requested a room next to the fitness center which is on the second floor. When I arrived they put me on the twelfth floor said it was because of the type of room I received. (King bed, non smoking suite) I figure they had that type of room on every floor. Other than that everything was just fine. November 5, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 房间太小,无免费早餐,性价比一般 酒店房间太小,地毯太薄,被子也不太舒服。 空调很差,窗帘要遮住出风口。 无免费早餐,去看了一眼,好像收费的早餐也很差。 房间内没有冰箱、微波炉。 电梯很慢。 总体来说,性价比一般。 November 5, 2014
