Great, small boutique hotel, just off Market Square in downtown Knoxville. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. King size room was very comfortable and well appointed and the bathroom was good sized. We were able to walk everywhere that we wanted to go and several restaurants and bars are within steps. The best kept secret is the "speakeasy" that is part of The Oliver. If we ever go to Knoxville again, we will definitely stay here again!

- 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 has hosted everything from the Kern’s candy counter and soda fountain to a drugstore, and dancing hall. In 1982, the building was then converted into the Blakely House Hotel to house VIP guests for the Worlds Fair. Several years later, the hotel was sold to the local legend, Kristopher Kendrick, who changed the name to Hotel St. Oliver. Known for it’s quirky, eclectic style, and long term guests such as actress Patricia Neal and author Elizabeth Gilbert, the hotel had operated for more than two decades under the radar of most who passed. Then, in 2011, the property was purchased and renovated by two young developers who changed the name to The Oliver Hotel. The hotel is the only boutique property in Knoxville with a style that plays tribute to the buildings history, while offering guests rooms with charm, sophistication, and modern amenities. ... more less
