The Volunteer Hotel
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Steps away from the UT Knoxville Campus; less than 10 minutes driving to boutique shopping and restaurants on the historic Market Square
- On-site dining includes local specialties from the Garden Grille and late-night snacks from the 24-hour Pavilion Pantry
- Popular attractions like the Knoxville Museum of Art and Ijams Nature Center are all a short drive away
Located one block off of Cumberland Avenue -- at arm's reach from the UT campus and a short drive to the Old City -- the Volunteer Hotel sits in the heart of all that Knoxville has to offer. Guests can wander through the red-bricked grounds of the university or sample steaks, barbecue and bourbon at local favorite the Copper Cellar (both less than five minutes by foot). The hotel is also convenient to popular landmarks like World's Fair Park and the Tennessee Theatre, not to mention s'mores crepes from French Market Creperie.
Modern amenities like Keurig coffee makers, free Wi-Fi and HDTVs with HBO come standard in all guest rooms. For those seeking more space, we recommend upgrading to a Deluxe room. The on-site Garden Grille and Bar specializes in Southern classics prepared with locally sourced ingredients. Guests can also sample hand-crafted cocktails at the hotel's Pavilion Lounge; alternatively, take your libations outdoors and relax around the patio fire pit.
