Home of the University of Tennessee Volunteers, it’s easy to volunteer to go to Knoxville. Full of antebellum history, Knoxville hotels have a delightful blend of old-world charm and new amenities to make any traveler feel comfortable. Whether traveling for business, pleasure or perhaps dropping the kids off at the real UT, you can rely on Knoxville for a great respite for you and your family.
With the Great Smoky Mountains just a stone’s throw away and the Tennessee River flowing through, Knoxville has no shortage of picturesque beauty no matter where you stay in the city. Sometimes called “the couch” by locals, Knoxville hotels are just as comfy as your sofa back home to kick back and enjoy yourself — with a Southern twist.
Historic hotels such as The Oliver are peppered throughout the city, bringing local history and flair, while well-known brands such as Hilton and the Hampton Inn make sure that no traveler in this city lacks convenience and luxury.
All along I-40 and near McGhee Tyson Airport you can look from any hotel room and learn why they call the gorgeous blue-gray mountains in southern Appalachia “Smoky” while you sip some sweet tea and find the best places to hear bluegrass music for the night.
