I enjoyed my stay in this hotel. I stayed for two nights. I expected the hotel to be crowded with families and children since it is directly across the street from the Aquarium, but I was pleasantly surprised. The swimming pool and whirlpool were virtually empty. I saw a few well-behaved kids, but I was relieved because I had heard that this hotel does sometimes draw the "families with lots of kids" crowd. Apparently that wasn't the case this particular weekend.
The hotel was clean and pleasant -- the floor that my room was on had been recently renovated. There was no bedspread on the bed just cotton sheets and a thick white comfy sheet cover. It was obvious that this hotel was getting rid of the old fashioned and disgusting habit of keeping unwashed bedspreads on the bed. The king bed was very comfortable. There were five pillows on the bed. There was a small deck that overlooked the downtown area, nice for sitting and relaxing. Amenties were very good.
The were two negatives: The hotel front desk person called 3 times in an attempt to have workers come in and change the curtain rod. I refused to allow this as the curtains were fine and looked brand new -- nothing wrong with the rod. Also, the $7 a day parking fee was rather steep, especially since the parking is a bit of a hike. If it had been raining, the parking situation would have been a problem.
Location is really good for anyone who wants to go to the IMAX, the aquarium, or the Bluff View Arts District. Many restaurants and shops are within walking distance.
Overall, a nice hotel with a good location in downtown Chattanooga.
