MCLEAN, VA—Embassy Suites Hotels celebrated the official grand opening of the new Embassy Suites Knoxville West yesterday with local officials and community members. Owned and managed by Kana Hotel Group, the 140-suite, six-story all-suites hotel is the area’s first full-service property in 25 years, according to Embassy Suites.
Speaking at the event, Alan Roberts, VP of brand performance support – Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Worldwide, stated, “This hotel is one of the first properties in Tennessee to feature our latest Design Option III concept, which brings the unique Embassy Suites attributes to life in a way that is attractive to developers and contributes toward an enhanced guest experience.”
The Design Option III model features a variety of two-room suites and side-by-side suites, in addition to a contemporary atrium area. The design decreases the amount of land needed and creates efficiencies for both construction and operational costs. These features also further enhance the guest experience, as there is still a great sense of space and more natural light in guestrooms and public areas.
Embassy Suites Knoxville West also features all of the signature amenities standard at any Embassy Suites hotel, including free cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, a two-hour complimentary Evening Reception and two-room suites with a separate living area, private bedroom, two flat-screen high-definition TVs and wet bar fitted with a microwave, mini-fridge and a selection of gourmet coffee and teas from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
