The TENNESSEAN Hotel Brings Personal Luxury Service, Butler To Knoxville

Tuesday, April 4, 2017
The TENNESSEAN Hotel, a personal luxury hotel that provides pampering amenities such as tailored concierge services and a personal butler for guests, opened its doors in downtown Knoxville on Saturday. 

The hotel boasts 82 guest rooms and 12 luxury residences on the grounds of the 1982 World’s Fair Park, which sits just on the perimeter of the University of Tennessee campus, a strong partner of the new hotel and source of more than 40 percent of The TENNESSEAN Hotel’s new staff. 

A genuine representation of its name, The TENNESSEAN incorporates features of the state throughout its design, courtesy of local project designer and architect McCarty Holsaple McCarty, Inc.
The hotel’s interior reflects the flow of the nearby Tennessee River and Tennessee craftsmen with Hackney Furniture in Sneedville, Tennessee have produced furnishings for each guest room and common area. 

Nicholas G. Cazana, Knoxville native and Inn Keeper of The TENNESSEAN Hotel, said it was vital that the hotel celebrate his home state and offer guests the utmost luxurious experience. 

“Knoxville is home for me. It’s always been home. I wanted to capture the air of Southern hospitality and personal luxury and bring it to Knoxville,” Mr. Cazana said. “There has never been anything like this before in East Tennessee. We expect The TENNESSEAN to attract new visitors and boost tourism to our scruffy city while also giving locals a nice place to have dinner and drinks or even take a staycation for the weekend.”

Guests of The TENNESSEAN Hotel can enjoy the city’s exciting and diverse arts, theater and culinary scene, shop in the boutiques of Market Square, take a cruise on the Tennessee River, visit the acclaimed Knoxville Zoo and take in several historic sites in the area. Knoxville also offers spectacular scenery and outdoor recreational opportunities in the many parks and the legendary Great Smoky Mountains overlooking the city. 

The TENNESSEAN is happy to have Regal Cinema, The Knoxville Museum of Art, The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, 10 local craft breweries and several Blackberry Farm chef-inspired restaurants as neighbors. Easily reached via Interstate Routes 40 and 275, The TENNESSEAN Hotel is just 14 miles from McGhee Tyson Airport.

The hotel is offering a limited time room rate of $179 per night beginning April 1 through the last week of June. Reservations can be made at www.thetennesseanhotel.com.
