The location is very good. Easy walking distance to UT, many restaurants, theaters and parks. Free trolley stop just outside with 4 different routes to see different areas. Free local shuttle was not running but would have been great. Could not review any of the amenities as they were all closed due to the coronavirus. Some staff were helpful - others not so much. During a crisis such as this front desk staff need to make it their job to get information for travelers about what is available in terms of dining and getting necessities. A printed list updated daily of nearby restaurants (especially since the hotel restaurant was closed). I ended up walking around blocks of a city I was unfamiliar with trying to find something to eat after a day of travel. "I don't know" and rattling off random names of restaurants was not helpful. A simple map or list of what is open, dine-in or takeout only and definitely a list of those that offered delivery since I spent much of the time in my room. Fortunately the people of Knoxville were extremely helpful and helped make my stay welcoming and pleasant.
