KNOXVILLE – Condé Nast Traveler today announced the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards with THE TENNESSEAN HOTEL recognized as the #17 hotel in the South.

More than 600,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers across the globe submitted a record-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences to provide a full snapshot of where and how we travel today.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” The full list of winners can be found here.

“To be named one of the top hotels in the South for a second year in a row is truly an honor,” said Skip Adams, THE TENNESSEAN Hotel general manager. “We strive to combine Southern hospitality with personal luxury, and this reader recognition affirms our dedication to bring those qualities to life for our guests.”

Opening its doors in April 2017, the hotel—which boasts 82 guest rooms and 12 luxury residences—provides opulent amenities such as tailored concierge services and an experienced staff who collectively speak nine different languages. THE TENNESSEAN is also home to the Governor's Suite, a 1,600-square-foot space with a baby grand piano, dining room, butler's pantry and nearly 360-degree views of the city. Additionally, the hotel has been named a AAA Four Diamond Property since its inaugural year.

Situated near the banks of the Tennessee River, guests at THE TENNESSEAN can enjoy all that Knoxville has to offer including a variety of historic landmarks, outdoor recreational activities and a vibrant arts, theatre and culinary scene. Less than an hour drive from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Knoxville is also home to The University of Tennessee and the prestigious 1982 World’s Fair Park.

To celebrate the honor, THE TENNESSEAN will be offering 15 percent off all rooms. More info about the deal can be found on THE TENNESSEAN's website.

The 2019 Readers' Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler's website and celebrated in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler US and UK print editions.

THE TENNESSEAN is more than a hotel – it is an authentic East Tennessee experience from the imaginative contemporary décor to the spirit of Southern hospitality that imbues the professional staff. The hotel’s interior design reflects the flow of the nearby Tennessee River, and the property’s logo features the Tennessee state flower, the Iris. The hotel’s 82 luxurious guest rooms and suites are spacious and equipped with luxury services such as turndown service, robe and slippers, in-room safe and hotel essentials such as workstation desks and coffee makers.
