This was such great little boutique hotel. It recently reopened after being closed for refurbishing. It is very quite and peaceful - we only saw other guests a couple of times in the lobby and there was minimal noise from the outside. Although the hotel is quite, it is only a few steps away from several restaurants, bars, shopping, and a movie theater. We really enjoyed our weekend stay. The only negative is that the lighting in the bathroom is not very conducive for the application of make-up and there is no full length mirror. We stayed in a King Suite and it was very comfortable. There were 2 TV's and a clock radio with an Ipod dock. The beds were comfortable with a bottom sheet and a comforter - there was not a top sheet so we had to keep the room very cool or we got really hot a night. The staff was very polite and accommodating. We did get a 20% discount through a deal through a social media outlet and this made the room more affordable. The rooms can get quite pricey otherwise. There is no parking with this hotel. We parked in a city garage around the corner from the hotel and parking on the weekend is free.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the heart of Knoxville just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Market Square, The Oliver Hotel is an original expression of the city. Originally built in 1876 as the Peter Kern Bakery, the building had hosted everything from the Kern's candy counter and soda fountain to a drugstore, and dancing hall. In 2011, the property was renovated into what is now Knoxville's only boutique hotel with a style that plays tribute to the buildings history, while offering guests rooms with charm, sophistication, and modern amenities. The property is also well known for its Peter Kern Library Bar and the award winning Tupelo Honey Cafe Restaurant. ... more less
