If you're visiting Knoxville for the first time, as we were, this is a great choice. Right off Market Square, the Oliver has been restored to a past-eradicating point (a few hints of what it used to be would be nice), but maybe as a result, rooms are spacious and bathrooms commodious. The only glitch we encountered was with our reservation. According to a desk clerk, the hotel sometimes books in the name of the accompanying traveler instead of the primary traveler resulting in much confusion at check-in (for the first time in my life, I was asked for the reservation confirmation number). There's no good reason why this shouldn't have been fixed promptly, as it's not a nice way to begin your visit.
- 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
