The TennesseanWhy we love it: A chic hotel offering luxury in the midst of downtown Knoxville
- Stylish decor featuring the work of Tennessee craftsmen
- Modern room amenities delightfully juxtaposed with old-school furnishings
- A pet-friendly policy that pampers pooches
Once an administrative building for the state government, The Tennessean turned a utilitarian space into a stylish boutique hotel, conveniently located near the burgeoning Old City and Market Square districts. With 82 plush rooms and suites overlooking downtown and World’s Fair Park, the hotel offers accommodations to suit tourists, business travelers, families, and even guests with pets. Whichever you choose, expect furnishings made by local craftsmen, plus amenities like luxury linens and modern gadgets in every room.
While The Tennessean doesn’t offer self-parking, it does have valet along with butler service on request. On-site dining is available at the Drawing Room, which morphs from a cozy breakfast spot to an elegant bar and bistro at night, but there are several other fine-dining options within a short walk of the hotel.
