A Look Inside Downtown Knoxville’s Newest Luxury Hotel

February 2, 2024

We visited the new Hotel Cleo on Gay Street.

Sparkling chandeliers, mirrors from Italy, and eclectic art pieces from all over are curated for this space. Newly-opened French restaurant Lilou is just off the lobby of this private concierge-style property.

Developers Oliver Smith and HD Patel showed us one of the hotel’s 16 rooms.
