A few friends and I were visiting some friends from the university and we stopped in to get out of the rain and have a drink while we waited. The bartender Rick was a blast. He was very attentive and a hoot at the same time. I couldn't think of the name of my favorite drink

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel a number of times when we go to a UT football game. The location can't be beat (but that's not what this review is about). The staff is what makes a stay here so special, and we have found that to be the case every year. We needed

Katy is polite, kind, informative, and goes “the extra mile”. She took extra time to even accommodate my needs for the following morning since I was leaving before 6am. I felt “cared for” and at home!

Hello! You won't be able to see the fireworks from our location very well. It is so much better to walk to the river area and experience the fireworks from there. Unfortunately, the City won't allow vehicles close to the festivities at all so therefore, we will be running our shuttle consistently from the hotel to the parking lot area of Church Street United Methodist Church on Henley Street. Our shuttle will run for limited hours for hotel guests only. Thanks for asking, we hope to see you soon.

"All rooms are great."
"Very comfortable rooms. You don't want to leave."
"X06 are beside the elevator. Even numbers view a parking lot, AC fans and a small view of the campus."
"Rooms on the back side, facing campus, might be a bit quieter than rooms facing Cumberland Ave."
"Eat downstairs and talk to Bar to find places to visit."
