Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT LOCATION AND FOOD GOOD STEAKS AND BREAKFAST. EASY LACTION TO GET TO. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Overall I've stayed several times and it's always consistently great! September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel, Great Value The Crown Plaza Knoxville Downtown is in the ideal location for explaoring all that downtown Knoxville has to offer. Just a quick walk to many restaurants and bars - it was just what my wife and I wanted. Very nice hotel, great location, and a great value. Couldn't be more pleased. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality experience although dated Even though this hotel seems somewhat dated, it still provided me with a good quality experience. It was within walking distance to both my business destination as well as walking distance to many restaurant options in downtown Knoxville. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Staff was awesome! Location perfect and what a wonderful city you have. Thank You! September 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Felt safe and pampered Loved our stay from the moment we hit the lobby. We were with in walking distance of all the places I needed to go. The staff was smiling when we'd return from being out. Breakfast was delicious and the fresh fruit was divine. Our room had a delightful surprise- electrical outlets on the lamp bases so you could plug in cell phone charges and keep your phone close by the bed! Wow- you thought of everything. Thanks for making Knoxville such a nice place to visit. September 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great view from top floor! Comfort was great in every respect and internet service was perfect for my needs. Bathroom was roomy September 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient to Market Square and Downtown Knoxville Location...location....location...so convenient to Market Square and downtown Knoxville. Lots of good food, music, entertainment. Amenities super and clean Great getaway for fun September 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great First Experience, Nice Hotel Pleasantly surprised by the property- grand, nicely appointed, with definite high-end feel from the second you pull up. Though it can always be better, the rate was fairly competitive. We only stayed one night and didn't get the full CP experience, but what we did get was pretty nice- wish we could've stayed longer. Frank greeted us as soon as we entered, and was extremely pleasant and good at making us feel welcomed and really relevant. lol He pointed out that we had late checkout, which was awesome, and gave us the low-down on everything we needed to know. The only somewhat "flat" personality we encountered was the the gentleman behind the bar. It would have been a better experience had he been a little more excited to be there. Everyone else was chatty, friendly, and helpful. Room 1112 has 2 double beds, the best part of the room being the bathroom- tile floors, roomy shower with a mirror, and decent amount of room to maneuver around. Grease up that squeaky bathroom door and it will be near perfect. The refrigerator in the room was not cold. It wasn't hot, it just wasn't cold, and none of our beverages were, either. We mentioned that to Frank on our way out to dinner, though it was the same when we returned a few hours later and remained "luke-cool" for our stay. The television- oh, the television. While trying to watch the Falcons run clean over the Bucs, the screen regularly went blank and that "no signal" flashing across became the normal. Sure, we missed a few good plays, but thankfully the game was not even close to being a nail-biter and we let that go. Next time, I plan to include an extra night stay so we can indulge in the Friday night prime rib and seafood dinner buffet at the restaurant- it broke my heart to miss that... Definitely look forward to returning. ProsLocation, Room Cleanliness, Amenities, Recognition for IHG® Rewards Club Members, bathroom, the bar, the staff Constv, refrigerator September 22, 2014
