“Best football weekend in the SEC”
Reviewed 21 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

If the rating was just compared to other Knoxville hotels the rating would be excellent (Sorry Tommy, you're not quite the Four Seasons yet!).

A little history is in order. Knoxville has a slug of mid-range hotels that were all built 30 years ago in preparation for the World's fair. They are more than adequate for the business traveler but really lack any charm, luxury or comfort that a higher end hotel provides especially for personal travel. We stayed at Cook lofts for a University of Tennessee football weekend. The location is central to downtown Knoxville (which is quite nice if you haven't been there ever or in the last 10-15 years) and to the University.

The loft is large--in my opinion best suited for two couples or families over a regular or extended stay. There is a large kitchen which is not really limiting at all. You can do or make anything in there. The loft has a large dining area and large seating area to host company, and in our case watch football. It is really the perfect setup for a football weekend as the space has multiple roomy couches and a large HD television. It's perfect for the crazed football culture trying to capture every moment of a college football Saturday--all in the shadows of Neyland Stadium. It's guaranteed you will be hard pressed to find anything of the sort in any other SEC town.

The location is as nice as the space itself. We did not need a car for the entire weekend which is such a convenience when you can just walk back-and-forth from Neyland stadium and all the gameday activities.

Finally, if you love college football and have never been to Neyland stadium you must put it on your list. The upgrades and renovations to the facility have made it a very nice venue. The number of national publications that have ranked UT as the #1 gameday experience are well known. Tennessee has a gameday experience that is rich in tradition and a pagentry that is unrivaled in college football. Top off your trip with a stay at the Cook Lofts. Enjoy!

“Road Warrior Impressed”

I am a traveliing salesman. Occasionally I will seek out a unique property to break the monotony of chain hotels. I had seen the reviews for COOK LOFT several times and finally decided to call. The owner, Tommy, answered and we reached a mutually agreeable rate. I was staying a weeknight and the unit was not rented.

It is an amazing property. Full kitchen. 2 nice bedrooms and plenty of room to set up pallets for kids etc. GREAT location walked down to Old City...about 1/2 mile...to enjoy a cigar at local cigar lounge Tommy recommended. Easy walk to stadium.

This place would be FANTASTIC for a weekend. Tommy told me people rent it our for events.. Parking up street or across street is convenient and safe.

Hosted my best friend's bachelorette party at the Cook Loft and she was speechless! This is the perfect venue for a girl's night out or really any type of party you could think of. The owner is very friendly and will go out of his way to make sure you have a great stay here. I highly recommend the Cook Loft.

“A classy, cozy, and convenient loft in downtown Knoxville”
Reviewed 10 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

people found this review helpful

We loved our stay at Cook Loft and can't wait to go back. The loft is spacious and elegant, and the layout of the living and dining areas and kitchen makes it the perfect spot for entertaining. (You feel like a Michelin star chef cooking on the Jenn-Air gas range.)

The loft's location in downtown Knoxville is perfect. You're only steps aways from the Bijou Theatre and a block down from the Tennessee Theatre. And in minutes you can be in the middle of Knoxville's Market Square.

Of course what makes staying in Cook Loft such a great experience is that booking the space is easy. The owner is very accommodating and checks in with you to make sure that everything is perfect for your arrival.

We're looking forward to going back, and hope that you'll consider staying at Cook Loft during your next visit to Knoxville.

“Great Loft, Excellent Location”
Reviewed 27 July 2011 for a stay in August 2010

I stayed here with some friends visiting Knoxville and we truly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect (would be great for UT Athletic Events as well as being close to downtown) and the loft was an excellent find. We will certainly utilize Cook Loft for our future visits to Knoxville. The spacious living room and kitchen were a great place to congregate.
