About
Description
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 More 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 best boutique hotel with a style that plays tribute to the buildings history, while offering guests rooms with charm, sophistication, and modern amenities. The property features the Peter Kern Library Bar, a craft cocktail lounge; Tupelo Honey Cafe, an award winning restaurant; and Oliver Royale Restaurant, featuring a chef driven menu and bar. Less

I love this hotel; great location to pedestrian mall, close to the University, lovely rooms,
lots of restaurants in cluding one attached to the hotel. There was an ice skating rink with lots of happy skaters and the mall was filled with lights.
I am going back next week!

"We enjoyed a King room with a view of the Market Square."
"Do not stay on the square side or entrance side if you wish to avoid bar noises"
"Avoid corner rooms or rooms on the square if you need to sleep. Bring ear plugs."
"3rd floor, facing Union St, offered good light and were relatively quiet."
"The Market Square Suites look out over Market Square. Quite a view especially at night with all the lights and activity."
