The Oliver Hotel has to be the best hotel in Knoxville. It is a Boutique hotel located downtown next to the Market Square. There are many restaurants, bars and shops near by. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Also, the hotel bar is a fun experience. We stayed two nights for my nieces wedding and fell in love with... More

Fantastic location - it's right in the middle of downtown. A 1 minute walk to lots of restaurants and bars. The only downside is that Market Square does sometimes get loud and you can hear it in your hotel room, but it's really not bad. Staff - everyone is always very cordial and helpful. No negative things to say at... More

We just spent 6 nights in The Oliver Hotel downtown Knoxville and simply loved the area. The hotel is a neat boutique hotel and their restaurant, Tupelo Honey, is great. The only thing that would make it better is for the restaurant to be in the hotel instead of next door. It was raining and you had to go out... More

I lived in Knoxville for college and must admit that I was shocked when I saw the hotel on the website. The website does not do this hotel justice! The staff is amazing, so kind and helpful. We loved that they had an adjacent restaurant. The food was perfect. But the most unexpected and welcomed surprise was the speakeasy in... More

The Oliver is perfectly located to enjoy downtown Knoxville and UT football. Hotel was warm and cozy with a friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed being able to explore the square while being close enough to pop in and out of the hotel.

This was our second stay at this beautiful hotel. We were in town for a play at the Tennessee Theater. It is a wonderful location for walking around downtown Knoxville and is near to many restaurants and activities. We were very pleasantly surprised with a room upgrade this time, and although I would have been perfectly content with the lovely... More

Very nice old style hotel, right off Market Square. Good staff and a nice bar. The location is perfect. As an older hotel, rooms are a bit small, but very well maintained. Stay here if you like old style downtown hotels.

We just enjoyed a great weekend at the Oliver Hotel for my daughter's wedding. The OH is perfectly located,right on Market Square. So many restaurants, late night establishments and a very pretty setting for walking and window shopping, all right within a two block walking area. Gay st is another block away with even more to do. The staff is... More

This is a lovely, hidden boutique hotel located in the perfect location to the best restaurants and shopping that Knoxville has to offer. I was unable to find it during a 'standard google search' and a friend happened to search for boutique hotels in the Knoxville area (thank goodness). It was perfect! Stayed in the Oliver Suite, which was gorgeous,... More
