Great Service

My friends and I were in town for our other friends' wedding. We didn't realize that Knoxville has about three total private taxis to service the entire city. So, we were stuck waiting for a taxi for two hours. The hotel staff was great and ended up taking us in a shuttle van, free of charge, to the reception!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Knoxville has about three cabs to service the entire city. I'm not sure if all three cabs are on the street at the same time. If you need a cab, you'll need to make an appointment in advance, at least a day.

Great hotel, even better using Orbucks!

Wow! I'd heard that the Holiday Inn World's Fair Site had undergone a renovation and they did a terrific job! Beautiful lobby and lovely, comfy room. Very pleasant front desk personnel. It was even better since I was able to pay for half of it with Orbucks! Nice perk for a last minute rendezvous!

Very comfortable stay

Room was very nice and comfortable. The staff was very helpful, recommended a good restaurant and suggested we take the hotel shuttle bus. Since it was a very cold night we welcomed the free ride. The hotel is very convenient to Market Square for shopping and/or dining. Would stay again.

If the weather is pleasant walk to the Square, but, as in our case, if the weather is frigid take advantage of the free hotel shuttle.

Handy place, close to museum, etc.

No problems other than the charge for Internet service. We carry our own MiFi for just this reason. Wish Holiday Inn would catch up with the Hilltons and offer free WiFi to reward members.

Diving Competition Spectator

Location was great. We could walk to the University and also to the many good downtown restaurants. The Vol trolley (free) was outside the door as well as free hotel shuttle service if needed. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable, and the staff was helpful and friendly. This was my third trip to Knoxville, but the first at this hotel. If in Knoxville again, this would be my first choice.

Pete's for breakfast had great pancakes and the price was very reasonable. There might be a bit of a wait, but the tables turn over quickly. The Tupelo Honey Café was or favorite lunch/dinner spot. The biscuits are the best I have eaten!
