My family and I were guests of The Oliver Hotel on April 21, 2012. First of all, I would like to note the incredible location of this hotel... Right in the heart of Market Square! When we arrived we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff and felt right at home!
We were in town for my sister's bridal shower which was held in the Speakeasy (Library) of the hotel. Alex Gunderson was extremely helpful throughout the planning process, offering anything and everything she could to make the process fun and easy! When we arrived, the room was clean, perfectly lit and decorated beautifully! Alex was also present the day of the shower and was eager to lend a hand with the party preparation! She was extremely welcoming to our family and all our guests, and everyone commented on how lovely she was to work with! The room also features a hidden door, which Alex let us utilize to hide the bride's sister who came into town unexpectedly to surprise the bride!
All in all, this was the most special private party I have ever thrown, and I absolutely owe the party's success to The Oliver Hotel and Alex. I will DEFINITELY be using The Oliver Hotel for all my special events in the future, and you should too!
- 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
