Boutique hotel in Knoxville

The Tennessee River is the unifying theme at this posh new hotel across the street from the Sunsphere and the city convention center. Look for maps of the river on guest-room walls, carpets with water-drop designs, and blue accents throughout the building. Southern hospitality is a highlight.

Top amenities include an indoor pool flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows, plus afternoon and evening cocktail service – open to the public – in the stylish Drawing Room (3pm to 11pm Monday to Thursday, to 1am Friday and Saturday, to 10pm Sunday).

Self-parking and valet parking are each $25 per day. The pet fee is $100 per stay.
