“So special”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Great location to walk to all downtown restaurants. The spa was perfect. Breakfast would have been better if gloves had been worn when making omelette. The omelette was fantastic but reaching in the vegetables with hands could have been better. Also would have liked salsa to place on it. Very good though

Room Tip: 4th or 5th floor have better views and are quieter

Upon arrival at the resort it was the most gracious welcome to a hotel. The valet staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. Checking in at the front desk was fast and easy! The hotel was very clean and up-to-date. There's a fire pit, billiard room, spa (pool) and jazz music (on the weekend) that was available but not used on this visit (unfortunately). The room was very nice and clean and ready upon check-in. Great view of the mountains. I made a special request because it was a birthday celebration and the front desk staff member was able to quickly accommodate. Great neighborhood.. amazing stay!

Only problem was the loud and inconsiderate guests making noise in the hallway late at night and someone's child refusing to stop knocking on the wrong room door (mine).

My wife and I have stayed at The Chattanoogan Hotel many times and it never fails to impress. The staff is polite and well trained. The grounds are always neat and pleasant. Rooms are comfortable and nicely sized.

We also like the spa and fitness area and on our most recent trip we sat outside in the sun in the area that surrounds the pool. The pool is small and indoors so it is not ideal for swimming laps, especially if there are a lot of kids in the pool.

The fitness area is small but adequate and there is a steam and sauna in the locker room area.

The food is usually quite good and we enjoyed the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning. Only negative on this trip is the band that played in the lounge was quite loud and negated any possibility of conversation with old friends. We had to go up to the room to visit with our out of state friends. Drinks are a bit pricey but the bar area is nice (when the band is not too loud).

We like the fact that this property is far enough away from the many action along the river and the Aquarium where crowds can be oppressive. It is still convenient to take the free shuttle or an inexpensive taxi ride to the tourist attractions.

Overall, another pleasant stay and we will certainly stay there again when we travel to Chattanooga.

This is a nice hotel that is conveniently located in downtown Chattanooga. About a month ago we came just to use the spa. My wife and son's girlfriend got manicures and pedicures and the spa was relaxing. My son and I got day passes to the spa for $10 each which was a bargain. we used the pool, Jacuzzi, steam and sauna. Next time we went to Chat, my wife wanted to stay at the Chattanoogan so I went ahead and booked it. The room and bed were comfortable, service was good and we like the location.

Spent a long weekend in Chattanooga with the kids. Nice hotel with the perfect accommodations for the family. Clean and friendly service. Indoor pool was a hit with the kids! Wish we could have been a little closer to downtown, but the shuttle makes up for it.

The Chattanoogan Hotel is a really nice hotel. My husband and I have stayed here many times over the past few years. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. They have a very nice spa and an indoor pool and fitness. You can catch the shuttle downtown about a block over from the hotel, which is really nice if you don't want to drive. On one visit it was raining, we decided to eat at the restaurant inside the hotel. The food was really good and the atmosphere was nice. Now when we visit The Broad Street Cafe is our first choice. They also have live music. Our last visit was for my birthday and we had a really nice time. I would definitely recommend The Chattanoogan Hotel, you will not be disappointed !

We love staying at the Chattanoogan. Upscale accommodations...but not the huge price, and within walking distance to UTC's football stadium. Rooms are extremely nice and clean. The outdoor area is a great place to spend time with friends after the games.

Room Tip: If staying over the weekend, I would recommend third floor or above. If they have a band in the bar...
