Step into tranquil luxury and enjoy the amazing views overlooking World's Fair Park with the Pat Summitt Suite. Dedicated to the iconic coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols, this suite features classic Tennessean decor interspersed with memorabilia honoring the late Pat Summitt and her enduring legacy. 

Summitt coached the Lady Vols basketball team for 38 years and won 1,098 games and eight national titles with a graduation rate of 100 percent. After her diagnosis in 2011 of early onset dementia, Summitt and her son, Tyler Summitt, formed The Pat Summitt Foundation to raise funds to support Alzheimer’s patients, caregivers, and clinical research. Pat Summitt died June 28, 2016, at the age of 64, and her foundation continues the fight to find a cure. A portion of all room rates from the suite will be donated to The Pat Summitt Foundation.

The suite combines subtle elements reminiscent of the basketball court with elegance and luxury which are the trademark features of The Tennessean Hotel. 

Natural wood elements in the chandelier, lamps, living room sofa and side chair represent the wood floor of a basketball court, while sofa tufting on seat and back give an ode to the basketball. Graphics on the walls showcases the illustrious career of Pat Summitt. From her awards to her candid moments on the court, you will find interesting facts and highlights from her career, foundation and her life. 

Enjoy gorgeous panoramic views from the floor to ceiling windows that begin in the sitting room and run throughout the bedroom.
