Hilton Knoxville

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location, walking distance to many shops, restaurants and attractions. Front desk staff was very knowledgeable about surrounding areas. Lovely area to sit outside by the fire with a beer in the evening. The rooms were the standard room, nothing special.

Great hotel, very comfortable beds, nice bathroom.

Stay was good - not a two room suite like the Embassy Suites and no free breakfast but a good location. Valet was $18 plus tip but parking is $13. No hassle with taking our two small dogs. Took them across the street to do their business. No microwave in the room tho, but then most hotels seem to be phasing that out. Bar closes at Midnight even on a Saturday.

Great place to be on game day as hotel is buzzing with fans.

This was a very nice and clean hotel. Located in walking distance to everything a travel could need. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly

Great location to UT campus and downtown Knoxville. Walked down to Tennessee river for amazing downtown sights. Solid hotel, good bar/restaurant, Starbucks in lobby perfect for our college student to be in the morning. Nice fire pit outside.

Great location. Friendly staff. Nice beds. Will stay here again if in Tennessee.

Great view of the river and school from our room. Clean and comfortable. Short walk from the market square

Very good experience at the Hilton... Had a great service was excellent...good location

We really enjoyed our trip through Knoxville, this is our 2nd time and our 2nd time with this hotel. We love it and you can walk to the market square, great stuff between it and the square. We ate, watched Shakespeare on the Square, did a little shopping. Love it.

For the money and the location, it would be hard to beat the Hilton. It's definitely showing its age in a place or two, but the rooms were very clean and the staff was great. Only problem was that my key card to exit the garage wouldn't work, which caused a huge, embarrassing traffic jam in the parking garage.

Great place to stay if you are in Knoxville. Close to University and Old Town.

Pretty great hotel close to everything. The only issue I the extra fee for the parking and no breakfast. Overall good experience.

Staff was great very helpful... Nice view of knoxville.. Very close to the market and dining.. Great place to stay for a football game.. Will return again and again

The front desk lady didn't really know what she was doing. She must have been new. Everything was pretty average. Nothing spectacular except it was centrally located and clean.

We were in Knoxville for a wedding, and it was a good place for us to stay, convenient to all the wedding party venues.

Great hotel. Restaurant , bar and Starbucks in it. Easy to walk to shops and restaurants and very clean.

There was mold on the ceiling. I'm allergic to mold so was really sick from it. We reported it and I was told I would receive a call from management within 24 hours. I never got that phone call. The staff was awesome. Everything was great other than the mold. We expected compensation for that for a room that was 200 bucks but never heard from them. So would not recommend this hotel.

They seem to be doing perpetual renovations of this hotel -- both last spring and last week, with no signs of progress or completion, at least to my eye -- but if you can overlook scaffolding, paint buckets, and a multitude of chatty workers in the lobby, you might enjoy your stay here. I have not eaten in the on-site restaurants so I can't speak to that, but Knoxville has so many great places to eat, I wouldn't eat in a hotel anyway. Go around the corner to Market Square, or out toward Farragut where there are dozens of splendid places to eat. Calhoun's On The River is a stone's throw away. Knoxville is a great place to walk and shop and eat and just relax. The Hilton staff are wonderful and will attend to your comforts. The beds are very luxurious. Bathrooms are small but there are huge fluffy towels and plenty of hot water. Nice big flatscreen TV and beautiful views.

The lobby is a delightful retreat from a hectic day of travel. In the winter, a fire warms the lobby and comfortable seating invites people to sit and talk. The staff are professional and quick to answer questions. The location, however, was my favorite. It's just blocks away from the fun Market Square--a place of great dining and drinking establishments. The Hilton-Downtown is a fantastic place for a weekend get-away, but I wish I could have stayed longer to visit more of the area restaurants in Market Square and along Gay Street.
