Rekindle the spirit of your alma mater at the smartest place to stay in Knoxville. Right on The Strip, Graduate Knoxville is just steps from the University of Tennessee campus and the Fort Sanders neighborhood, with close proximity to Neyland Stadium.
Nestled along the Tennessee River and the nearby Great Smoky Mountains, Graduate Knoxville offers access to both the city’s rich cultural and outdoor offerings. Inside, a palette of orange, blue and white mixes with vintage touches and unique accents honoring the Marble City. In the lobby, follow the bright chevron stripes and say “ahoy” to our shipshape front desk, inspired by the Volunteer Navy.
Morning or late night, Poindexter Coffee serves up our signature breakfast sandwiches and café favorites to keep the fighting spirit going all day long. Looking for something stronger? Stop by Saloon 16, our western-inspired, high-end watering hole opening in partnership with UT-alum and former NFL quarterback Peyton “The Sheriff” Manning.
So whether you’re in town cheering on the Vols, strolling through the theatre district or polishing off a slab of ribs at Sweet P’s, we’re here to make your stay memorable. Our warm, friendly, whip-smart staff will guide you around Knoxville so that you feel like a local, even if it’s your first time in town.
