Several colleagues and I stayed at the Oliver when in town for business. Overall the hotel is very comfortable and has a nice atmosphere. The front desk staff, Martin in particular, is very helpful and accommodating. One suggestion I would make would be to put some brighter lights in the bathroom. You can tell they were designed by a man... More

We were seated in our own private room and the service was so attentive. Everyones meals as well as desserts and drinks were really fantastic. The ambience was great as well. This is a really...

My week+ stay at the Oliver was more than I could have hoped for. The Oliver staff remembered my name and provided everything that I needed. From the valet parking, morning coffee, gym passes, well-appointed room, and friendly overall service, I got red carpet service. Just say no to the soulless other Knoxville hotels and stay at this true gem... More

My wife and I recently spent a weekend at the Oliver and had a great experience overall. We travel to Knoxville frequently, but this was our first time at the Oliver. We normally stay at one of the larger hotels but found this property to be very charming, and a great location on Market Square. The historic building has been... More

This is definitely the BEST hotel in Knoxville. It's full of charm and history, and is set in the perfect location for taking in and enjoying downtown Knoxville. The hotel has done an outstanding job keeping the history of the building alive while incorporating plenty of modern and local decor throughout. The bedding is very comfortable and the bathrooms are... More

Outside is awesome. Inside small but efficient. Room small. Bed wonderful. Bathroom a little dark by mirror but super bright in shower. Noise was okay. We had a room 2nd room facing square and I could see it being a little noisy on a Friday, Saturday night but we were there on a Sunday and was fine.

Very personal attention during our stay. Satisfied even though I had high expectations from a previous stay. Clean, cool, and in Market Square for a quick brunch and enjoying the outdoors or window shopping.

We just stayed at The Oliver for a one night stay on our way to Blackberry Farm and LOVED it. It is centrally located in Market Square and is a well maintained and modern boutique hotel. The rooms look fairly newly renovated with all the modern amenities you would need. The restaurant downstairs - Tupelo, is NOT your average hotel... More

We love The Oliver. The location is perfect with easy access to everything downtown Knoxville. Market Square is full of restaurants and shops, and Gay Street is a block over. The Oliver offers valet parking, but you can also park for free at the Market Square garage on the weekend and it is right around the corner.
