Wonderful small hotel with windows overlooking the bustling Market Square. Without doubt the best place to stay in downtown Knoxville. One of the owners was actually working at the front desk and was very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed visiting with him at the free wine tasting at 6pm and hearing about the history of the hotel. He recently purchased, refurbished and reopened and his group did a wonderful job from decorating to completely updating the baths with walk-in showers. The beds are very comfortable. The housekeeping staff was very thorough, professional and friendly. Market Square has many wonderful restaurants and is a great place to hang out and people watch. The Riviera and Tennessee theaters are only a block away and covered parking is right around the corner. Our experience at the Oliver was equal to our stays at the Peninsula in New York and a lot more reasonable.
- 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
