The Holiday Inn World's Fair Park has grown from a rich history. Our building was originally built for the 1982 World's Fair, and boasts stunning views of the iconic structures in World's Fair Park, right in our back yard. The park is Knoxville's largest public green space, and contains the Knoxville Greenway - a system of over 82 miles of paved and earthen trails that wind through the various neighborhoods of the city.

Staying with us is the best of both worlds: outdoor adventure, running & walking trails, river walks and Knoxville's Urban Wilderness neighbor the lively bustle of the urban scene. Downtown Knoxville is complete with over 75 dining choices, local shops, constant entertainment and events aplenty. All of the above are no more than three miles from our front door.

Our fabulous breakfast buffet, cooked-to-order menu and Fairgrounds Coffee Bistro and Market bring you palatial sustenance to face the day or a pick-me-up espresso drink in the afternoon.
