2019 Convention Hotel Overview

Hotel Reservations

Please support SETC by staying at one of the hotels on our list. These are the official SETC Convention hotels in Knoxville, TN. Reserve directly with the hotel of your choice, and be sure to mention you’re with SETC to get the discounted group rate.

Group Rate Hotel Reservations Open: Nov. 12, 2018
Cut-off dates vary by hotel and are based on availability.

Nightly room rates range from $82 plus tax for hotels within a short drive up to $139 plus tax for hotels within walking distance of the Knoxville Convention Center.

Reserve Carefully:

Some hotels will require a non-refundable one night deposit when you book your room; a few will require a multiple night commitment.

What prompted this new policy?

Convention attendees are booking rooms and canceling them at the last minute, leaving many hotel rooms close to the convention events empty. We negotiate cheaper sleeping room costs and other incentives that keep SETC registration and other costs low based on a promise that we will fill those rooms.


There are several options for parking in and around downtown Knoxville. Many garages and lots are free on weeknights and on weekends. Explore parking options.
