Crowne Plaza Knoxville Reviews
Great downtown location & PET FRIENDLY Jun 28, 2009
I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Knoxville on a Sunday and Monday night with my parents when we visited Pigeon Forge, TN on vacation. This hotel had a great downtown location, there were many restaurants to choose from within a 2 mile radius, and the best part of the hotel is that they are PET FRIENDLY!
I brought my two medium-sized dogs (30 and 37lbs), and they welcomed the dogs with open arms. They did not even charge an outrageously overpriced pet fee like many pet-friendly hotels like to do.
The rooms were very comfortable, clean and up to date. There was a great view of downtown from the room and I love their "Sleep Advantage" sleep program. The beds are very comfortable with all-white bedding (so you know it's clean!), four fluffy pillows and a small bag with lavender linen spray, ear plugs and a sleep mask.
The staff was very attentive and genuinely friendly. As I took the dogs out for walks multiple times per day, the evening bellman stopped and greeted the dogs by name and gave them a scratch every time! (Oh yea, and he greeted me too!)
We did not have dinner in the restaurant, but we did enjoy their huge breakfast buffet each morning - it was delicious! Lots to choose from for a very reasonable price (as far as hotel breakfasts go!). Service was good, even though we went in late (around 9am) so the restaurant was not very busy, they were still very attentive to us. The food quality was also very good, for being late in the morning and right before dismantling the buffet. There was still good choice, the food was hot and fresh.
You can tell that the hotel itself is an "older" building, but it is very well kept up and the furnishings and carpets were new. I will be staying here again for a wedding in August, can't wait to go back!
Definitely two thumbs up!
