My fiancee and I went for a weekend getaway to Chattanooga. We stayed 3 nights. This was our first experience with a boutique hotel. The building was very interesting (built in the early 1900's). It has the intimate feel of a B&B (only 16 rooms) without the close interaction with your host and other guests. Although we enjoyed our stay, this hotel is not the place for picky patrons. There were a few minor things (room phone didn't work, low water pressure, room was little drafty) that didn't bother us, however, someone who is looking for a luxurious setting with all the amenities and services would probably be unhappy with this hotel. We liked that the building was old (but nice!) and had a history behind it. The furnishings were mostly antiques and the floors sloped due to age, but for us this was part of the charm. I would not recommend this place for families with small children. There are too many things to break. They served breakfast every morning and it was delicious, with a wide variety of things to choose from (bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, yogurt, pastries, etc.). In fact, the breakfast at the hotel was the best meal we ate all weekend. We never heard any noise from the rooms on either side of us, however, you could hear people in the hallway but there wasn't a lot of foot traffic, so this wasn't bothersome. The hotel is located downtown, so you will hear traffic and sirens, but this wasn't bad enough to bother our sleep. The hotel was conveniently located. We could have walked to most of the local attractions and restaurants/pubs. Unfortunately for us, it was too cold while we were there to walk anywhere. The parking during the week is a couple blocks away and requires a card to open the gate that you have to pick up at the front desk, however, on the weekends, you have access to a parking lot next to the hotel and just steps from the front door. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for something different than the cookie-cutter chain hotels. If you like B&B's, I would definitely recommend trying this place out. We will stay here again when we go back to Chattanooga.
