I am so selective and extremely particular about hotels! I travel a great deal!
Knoxville has nothing that is not chain, tired or little over average at best! Or so I thought!
The OLIVER under Michael, the young man running this wonderful hotel has shown me, there is a classy boutique hotel in Knox, that reminds me of a some great Kimpton properties! Unique in its own right and Michael, the hotel manager shared the history with me. How many managers care to Share so much history with their guests?
He gets it, the ownership must get it and the staff follow with charm and exceptional service!
I love David, Yaz, Dino and AJ, yes, you get to know the exceptional staff immediately , you have no choice! They greet you when you arrive and leave and ask if your needs are met in a round about perfect way!
They take such expert care of you and ask you if there is anything you might need or desire while you stay here! Housekeepers jump to attend to you, everything is pretty seamless!
The rooms are so well appointed, great sheets and amenities!
Michael is a real asset! Great hotel manager that gets the special touches. The bourbon bar, the great coffee , the real glasses, I am all about green and this hotel exceeded my expectations, no plastic ok, D all the above
Thank you for the wonderful stay! Great business, great pleasure hotel! Great experience!
Thank you all!
PE I love the ice cubes and art!
You do it all up right! Give Michael a raise, he deserves it!
