“A great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

This was my first trip to Chattanooga in almost two years and the hotel was exactly as I left it; except they removed all the clothes hangers. Still, it was clean, the staff was friendly as always, and you just can't beat the location.

Stayed here for a wedding in Chattanooga. We stayed one night in a queen studio. The room was very clean and large. Walking distance within several restaurants, the children's museum and the aquarium. Has an indoor pool which we didn't use because we forgot our bathing suits. Would stay here again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

Just got back from a 2 night stay here. The staff was very curtious and helpful. Parking is reasonable and if their lot is full you get to use the garage across the street. Our room faced the garage and was on the top floor. The view was really the only thing that was bad about the room. It faced the garage and there was a very small balcony that wasnt good for much. Not a big deal for us, but just to make you aware.

The room was very clean and spacious. It was updated nicely and the bed was comfortable. If you are looking at a long stay, it seems like it would be a good choice. Breakfast was just OK, it was really crowded this weekend as there was a rowing regatta (sp?) going on. Again, not a deal breaker as we dont really expect much from free breakfasts.

The best part of this hotel in my opinion is the location. it is close to everything downtown. There really isnt anywhere you cant go within a half mile walk. Except for the guy running a blower in the parking garge Sunday at 8am, there isnt much traffice/city noise to worry about either.

We get a dicount through work, so the value was good compared to the other hotels downtown. A few others offer us a discount but they were full due to the rowing I assume. When we go back, this hotel will definately be on our short list again.

Very nice hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The Operations Manager, Chris, went out of his way to help us (repaired the whirlpool timer so we could use it after a long day's travel in the car.) All other staff were also friendly, efficient, and helpful, making our three day stay enjoyable, creating a very welcoming atmosphere. The hotel's location is basically across the street from the free CARTA electric shuttle and a short walk to the Walnut Street Walking Bridge and the Aquarium and the IMAX and several of the City of Chattanooga Bike Share stations; this was a big plus. Our room included the breakfast which was exceptionally good, beyond what you would normally expect. Food at the evening meal time was provided free for all guests on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (which came as a surprise to us) and also exceptional in taste and variety. Gated parking provided at an additional charge.

Within a 5 minute walk to the Aquarium, IMAX theatre, Pedestrian Bridge. Downtown is pet friendly. Rooms are remodeled exquisitely. Front desk staff is very helpful and readily available. The parking is behind the hotel off the main street. The entry door to the elevators at the back entrance is awkward. There should at least be a handicap button to press, especially for large luggage entry.
The 2-room suite is well worth it. Having a full size kitchen is handy to eat indoors. The fireplace heats up quickly!! Close to the baseball stadium too.

Great location many nearby restaurants and area attractions. Gated parking lot. Recently renovated hotel suites are very nice. I am a little curious though about the sign on the door stating 'no weapons'.

We had some water damage to our home, so we stayed at the hotel for a month. The staff was very personable. Vannette was very kind to our young son and was quick to strike up a conversation with him. We enjoyed the indoor pool. A hot breakfast was provided every morning as well as complimentary snacks and adult beverages on week nights. The room itself was well furnished. A great room with a small kitchnette and living area with couch provides a place to hang out instead of having to lay on the bed all the time. Pets are allowed too which was a necessity since we had to stay there for a month.

Room Tip: Get a ground level room if you are traveling with a pet.
