First of all, this was a decent hotel. It wasn't over the top. It wasn't a dump. It was okay. We purchased our stay at Prieline.com and got the room for about 60% of the published rate. I would be VERY upset if I had paid full price for this room. When we got there, we parked in the parking garage and toted our baggage across the courtyard. It is not too far, but I wouldn't want to carry a week's worth of luggage across the way. We got to the desk and the attendant was in training, so it took a while to get checked in.
Our room was average. The beds were not comfortable. Instead of using real pillow-top mattresses, they had a thick pad that laid on top of the mattress. It was not very comfortable. I would think that a "four star" hotel would go ahead and spring for the nice mattresses. Also, the room had a huge television armoire that had a nice opening for the television, but for some reason the tv was sitting on top of the armoire. Again, not a big deal for comfort, but it didn't look like the way a nice hotel would do things. Keep in mind that the rooms apparently do not have refrigerators, so don't plan on bringing back leftovers from dinner.
You do have to pay to park, something that you have to deal with at most downtown hotels. The hotel is very convenient to the free downtown shuttle system, so it is a good option for those wishing to visit the Chattanooga riverfront.
All in all, enjoy your stay here, but do not pay the full price.
