Knoxville (WVLT) The Crowne Plaza is the only downtown hotel holding a New Year's Eve celebration tonight.

The plaza expects more than 400 partygoers to ring in 2008 together.

The party begins at 6:30 pm with a dinner, dancing, a live band, party favors and a complimentary breakfast.

They'll watch the ball drop from Times Square on a big screen.

Ken Knight, the general manager of the Crowne Plaza says, "good band, good food, good time, safe. You can go to your room when you're all done and not have to worry about the drive home. We encourage people to come out and see us."

The Crowne Plaza packages range from $189 up to $359.
