We made our reservations a year ago for a convention we have in Knoxville. SO GLAD WE DID! It is a beautiful hotel and the staff is AMAZING! The staff is exceptional, the room incredibly comfortable. We will be back!

Initially the room wasn't ready and when we got to our room it was dirty. They made it right by moving us rooms. The staff was phenomenal. The bar was great. The food was great as well. I would stay here again.

My stay at The Tennessean was exemplary! The location was perfect, the people were friendly, the hotel was clean, even the valets surpassed my expectation. This will be my hotel of choice in Knoxville going forward (sorry, Hilton!).

Had such a wonderful long weekend at The Tennessean Hotel for a wedding. The location is awesome..close to restaurants, Market Square, campus,World’s Fair Park, and convention center. Lots of walking areas. Hotel was very clean and a nice lobby with comfortable couches and seating..also an outdoor patio. Enjoyed the lounge on 2nd floor for after dinner cocktails, nice and cozy. I have never been around a nicer staff who work here, from front desk, Elizabeth Long, Eric, and Ed, to valet, Ethan, bellman, and housekeeper, Melanie. They made our weekend even more pleasant and comfortable. Will plan to stay here again!

First day cleaning lady seemed annoyed we were still in the room at 9:30. She never came back had to call to clean. Third day, again had to ask room to be cleaned. Dirty sheets for 3 days..... They moved things around, but did not clean bathroom or vacuum at all.
