The Oliver Hotel is a welcome addition to downtown Knoxville, which has several chain hotels but not -- until now -- a good boutique hotel. The Oliver just opened in June and is still working out a few "kinks," but we enjoyed our 4-night stay. Located in a historic building but with a thoroughly modern interior, the Oliver is on Market Square and just a couple of blocks from Gay Street, so downtown Knoxville's shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions are within easy walking distance. It's a great change from the Hampton Inn, Marriott, and other chains that previously have been the only options in downtown Knoxville.
- 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
