Graduate Knoxville

Graduate Knoxville

HR Construction partnered with AJ Captial Partners to create this high-energy, vibrant-big-orange University of Tennessee pride hotel. Graduate Knoxville, formerly known as The Volunteer Hotel, is another addition to the Graduate Hotel brand that HR Construction assisted with constructing. The hotel is located within a short walk from the University of Tennessee and is inspired by the University. The property also features Saloon 16, a western-influenced, high-end tavern built in partnership with University of Tennessee alum Peyton Manning.
