Local residents looking for a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary...we love coming downtown and spending the evening on Market Square, thought this would be a great mini "staycation" spot. Definitely fulfilled all our expectations - this is a hidden gem of a hotel, very nicely updated and a unique place to stay in downtown Knoxville. Our room overlooked Market Square, we could hear the musicians and actors performing Shakespeare as part of the Square's "First Friday" events. Hotel manager Dann Black was great - even greeted us by name when we came downstairs in the morning. The room was great - very comfortable bed, nice flatscreen TV, loved the giant walk-in shower. Check out Cafe 4 directly across Market Square - great food, great atmosphere.

- 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
