The shuttle took us right down to the old city where all the venues are and picked us up, but only till 11pm. Unfortunately the festival ran later than that.
In an effort to ease the hangover on the second morning of the festival, we went to the restaurant at about 11 am, and the bar was closed. We asked for a mimosa and a bloody Mary and waited about 15 minutes with no drink. We went outside after we gave up and the server chased us down, offering the drinks on the house, but we were just over it at that point. One time before i stayed here and was having sex with my girlfriend and the manager actually called the room when we were done and asked us to keep it down. Thin walls, apparently. II'm going to the Hilton next time I stay in Knoxville.
It was clean and well lit, the decor was very elegant. That's about it, the rest a collection of minor aggravations coupled with a major safety issue.
1) I had to pay for parking and told to park on top of the garage out in the weather while people who were paying to park for a local sporting event were allowed to park inside the garage. 2) The windows to the room were poorly sealed and even with the thermostat set at 80 the room was miserably cold. When I called the front desk to request another blanket, I was told there was an additional charge. 3) The entrances and sidewalks are poorly lit and the curbs painted a dark gray color. Upon returning from dinner, a short walk up the street and much later in the evening, I nearly broke my ankle when I thought I was stepping off of the sidewalk but was stepping half-way off of the curb, nearly falling in the process (no alcohol was involved). This needs to be addressed as a serious safety issue. 4) If a hotel is going to offer room service, dirty dishes need to be picked up promptly, not left in the hallway outside the room for hours and hours. This was the first and last time I ever stay at this facility and we travel A LOT.
Liked the on-site dining and bar. Site is quite and family friendly.
Bathrooms a little cramped in rooms. Needs better space utilization.
