Book one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Knoxville, Tennessee. Browse local artists' work at the Museum of Art before spending a relaxing afternoon in Market Square, sipping iced sweet tea at a patio café.
The Knoxville Museum of Art collects a range of 20th- and 21st-century works by eastern Tennessee artists, from abstract paintings to mixed media mobiles and bronze sculptures. More than 800 animals, including such crowd-pleasers as Bengal tigers, African elephants and giraffes, draw visitors to the Knoxville Zoo, just a short drive from our Knoxville hotels. The world's largest basketball, a whopping 10-ton, orange-and-black sphere, rests atop the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. Part museum, part interactive sports venue, the hall honors women players of all levels and includes indoor courts where visitors can shoot hoops after their tour.
Our Knoxville hotels are near Market Square downtown, a favorite spot to shop, dine and relax over drinks. Once Knoxville's original city market in 1854, Market Square now hosts a bountiful farmer's market, spring through autumn. Knoxville kids love to play splashy tag during the summer in the central spouting fountain. Nearby antiques shops sell silver candle holders and primitive Southern crafts, and boutiques offer trendy hats and leather jackets. Relax at an outdoor patio on the square, dining on Tennessee barbecued ribs or chicken-fried steak and glasses of sweet tea. After hours, order a tumbler of golden Tennessee whiskey. Guests of our hotels in Knoxville enjoy First Friday downtown, a monthly evening of gallery openings and live music at art galleries, pubs and in Market Square.
Stay at our Holiday Inn hotels in Knoxville in spring, when an hour's drive to Great Smoky Mountains National Park reveals blooming rhododendrons and redbuds, or in fall, when the park's hardwoods burst into brilliant reds and oranges.
Comfortable bed, clean room, and good service. There were problems with our fridge, the chair, and the variety of food could improve.[Less]
I've stayed here a few times, as an in-between in moving from point A to B. I was there on business, and its a nice place. No complaints, good location, good staff, place is kept up nicely.[Less]

Convenient and a nice place to stay.
This was a nice place to stay on our way to Dollywood. There were some nice restaurants close by, also.[Less]
Exact Location I needed
It was the perfect location for splitting up our trip.
We needed a Pet Friendly hotel and we found this one right where we needed it!
Ours was a short stay, but, we had everything we needed.
Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful upon arrival and departure![Less]
The hotel is located in a perfect spot to visit all the highlights of a trip to Knoxville. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the pool was very nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. The[More] parking rates seemed a bit high, but other than that, it was a very nice place to stay.[Less]
We have stayed at many world class hotels, and this place can certainly hold its own against the very best. Friendly[Less]
Great Stay, Convenient Location
If you are going to the Knoxville Convention Center for any reason, this is where you want to stay. Be sure and book early because it will fill up! We usually stay here twice a year and enjoy it[More] very much. My only criticism is that they need to invest in some more luggage carts. There only seemed to be one of two available which left us making multiple trips to the parking garage.[Less]
