Decorating was beautiful. Garbage was left in room so we needed to empty the can. Would have loved to have a coffee maker in the room for convenience.

We apologize that your experience was not what you expected and assure you that we work very hard to make our hotel the best in the area. Training our staff to provide excellent guest service and to maintain a very clean, safe, & maintained facility is always our highest priority. Our property is valet only due to our location and layout of our parking garage. To ensure the safety of our guest's vehicles, our garage is secure and only accessible by our Valet staff. We do hope you choose to stay with us again on your next trip to Knoxville.

The housekeeping staff was incompetent. No housekeeping service to room during my entire stay!!! Mini fridge was dirty when I checked in. I complained and no satisfactory resolution was offered from staff.
