Exterior of The Tennessean Hotel

Upscale amenities, an amicable staff (that collectively speaks nine languages) and an ideal location are just a few reasons to enjoy a stay at Knoxville’s only AAA Four Diamond-rated hotel.

The 82-room hotel exudes elegance, beautifully combining Southern hospitality with international luxury. Each room is uniquely appointed with Tennessee River-inspired carpets, framed maps and accented with calming gray and blue hues. Choose from six executive suites, six one-bedroom suites and the 1,600-square-foot Governor’s Suite (complete with a baby grand piano). Suite guests are provided a dedicated concierge and butler service. Six of the hotel’s corner rooms boast impressive views of the city, including World’s Fair Park and Sunsphere Tower, both built for the 1982 World’s Fair.

The Tennessean accommodations

The hotel is situated within walking distance of Knoxville’s thriving culinary hub along Market Square and Gay Street. Guests are also convenient to The Muse (Children’s Museum), the Ijams Nature Center, the Knoxville Zoo and Navitat Canopy Adventures.

Savor a meal in The Drawing Room, where menu rotates seasonally and features locally sourced ingredients. Here you can also enjoy a signature cocktail from the city’s largest selection of small-batch Tennessee Whiskey. A nod to Great Britain’s enduring tea culture, tea service is offered daily in The Drawing Room. Sip the hotel’s signature Sweet Peach Noir tea as you sample your way through scones, tea sandwiches and petit four desserts.
