The Chattanoogan Hotel is the only 4-star AAA rated hotel in downtown Chattanooga I read. It's not huge, just 5-floors, with nice brick & modern ecor, and it is connected with the Chattanooga conference center so it sees a lot of meeting activity (no problem). We stayed here on a couples long weekend to Chattanooga. It's in a quiet location on the edge of the downtown area. About 5 blocks to the Choo-Choo, 1-mile to the river and aquarium or Bluff Arts District and only a 10-15 minute drive straight out to the Lookout Mountain area and the attractions there.
The only negative I saw with this hotel was the 1-mile distance to the river and main downtown area of Chattanooga. Getting into the central area however is easy, parking is free after 430pm or on weekends on the streets and you can easily rent the city bikes at the hotel and pedal your way into town with convenient bike stations everywhere. There is also a free bus just 2 blocks away that runs every 10-15 minutes and we used that several times to get to the river, short north or arts area too. So it's easy to navigate the distance, it's quiet, and you can enjoy more of the downtown area too by being further out.
The rooms were a good size, but I did find the bathroom to be smaller than most newer, 4-star hotels I've stayed at. Not a complaint though. The amenities were good with a small heated pool, jacuzzi, fitness room and locker/spa area. Locker room also included a small steam and dry sauna booth comfortable for one person. The front desk was always helpful with papers available each morning & coffee. The parking deck is on-location and you can self or valet park. Self parking is only $8 per night, which is very fair and reasonable compared to other cities and 4-star locations. Free Wi-Fi was excellent amenity. There is a restaurant, bar and cafe/coffee shop on location which is good. Nice fire pit patio in the cooler evenings. There are only a few eating areas within walking distance of the hotel, including a few around the Choo-Choo hotel and Warehouse district, but again, the main river area is easy to get to.
We'd stay here again. I recomend the Bluff Arts District, Tennessee Aquarium, walking the Pedestrian Bridge and riverside parks, and North Shore area, The Terminal Restaurant was great, Tony's Italian on the Bluff, Milk and Honey "artisan" Gelato in N. Shore, Ruby Falls, Rock City, Lookout Mtn Park, Chickamaugua Battle Field, Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, Quest Whitewater Rafting on the Ocoee to name a many things to try and do. Give me a check if this helps and Enjoy your trip!
