    The Tennessean
    Knoxville, TN
    #1 in Best Hotels in Knoxville
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 115 reviewsTripAdvisor (115)
    One of the biggest draws of this boutique hotel is its central Knoxville, Tennessee, location. The Tennessean is situated just north of the Sunsphere observation tower and the Knoxville Convention Center, making it a convenient option for both leisure and business travelers. But guests say the hotel's friendly staff and comfortable, well-equipped rooms are just as impressive. All rooms and suites have neutral color palettes with blue and gray patterned carpets, accent chairs and window treatments, plus wooden furnishings and regional map artwork. Illy coffee makers, Cuby radios and flat-screen TVs also come standard, while the 1,646-square-foot Governor's Suite features extra perks like a gas fireplace, a baby grand piano, hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Other on-site amenities include a 24-hour business center, a fitness center, an executive boardroom and The Drawing Room. But keep in mind that The Drawing Room only serves beverages and small plates in the afternoon and evening.
