Went whitewater rafting in Gatlinburg and found the town to be too much. Decided to escape to Knoxville for rest, relaxing, and some good food choices. Stumbled on the St. Oliver hotel and was pleasantly suprised by this great little hotel. Couldn't have asked for a better location. The front desk staff was the most pleasant and helpful of any hotel I've ever visited. Accomodating and provided some great food recommendations. Our room faced Market Square. Bed was super comfortable. Bathroom was very stylish. Shower was great. The owners did a great job with this renovation. Every person we encountered from desk staff to cleaning staff was friendly and helpful. They run a great place and the St. Oliver will provide you a memory far different than the big box hotel chains. We try to frequent locally owned businesses during our travels and the St. Oliver is a great boutique hotel in the heart of Knoxville. Give it a shot.
- 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 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. ... more less
