My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We purchased the newlywed package which included milk and cookies, live flower arrangement, candlelit bath, cheese platter, chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, $80 credit to terra mae, and breakfast in bed. Everything was exquisite and the staff could no have been nicer. Our room was absolutely perfect, complete with balcony, a fireplace, and beautiful chandeliers. The hotel is nestled right in the heart of downtown within walking distance to all the local restaurants/bars. I cannot wait to go back.

My wife picked this boutique Hotel in downtown Chattanooga because its description was good and the location was great. We were overwhelmed by their hospitality. Everyone was wonderful to us. The hotel has a wonderful history and adjacent restaurant. One of the amazing elements is the frames of the mirrors. The wood is spectacular. Each room is unique with original wood floors and updated washroom facilities. Breakfast is in the restaurant. We met the 'morning chef' who prepared perfect poached & scrambled eggs for us. He also told us a lot about the area and how excited he and his young family are to live in the Chattanooga area, with all the outdoor activity options and vibrant downtown. Stone Fort Inn is a piece of Chattanooga's history and everyone we met is an ambassador. A great place to stay.

Room Tip: If you have a choice, pick rooms away from 10th Street if possible.

We had a gracious reception and a charming room with antiques and balcony, and a bottle of San Pellegrino, which was appreciated. As a member of the Society for Historic Preservation, I give the Stone Fort Inn high marks. And the food is yummy! I must say one thing. The lamp by the bed is not good to read by--alas, a lot of historic places ( and not-so-historic places) have this quirk. Bring your backlit Kindle and you'll be fine.

My boyfriend made the reservations at this Inn and surprised me with a get away due to all the stress I've been under recently. I had never been to this Inn and typically, we will go to the smokey mountains. But chattanooga is pretty mountainous, and this Inn was just adorable and so well run. The rooms were clean and comfy, and the food delish. We enjoyed the oversized tub in our room, and it was nice to have a shower too in the same bathroom, separately. Our furnishings were very nice and the bed was not too firm, not too soft. We just relaxed and enjoyed the town. There is plenty to do in Chattanooga! The service and the food at the StoneFort were very good as well. We will head this way again for our getaways!

We stayed over the weekend for the Hooch Boat/ Crew competition where our nephew was competing. Although there was a large wedding party in house, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the ambiance of the Inn, and we thought the service was very good as well. The rooms were clean, housekeeping was efficient. The towels were nice and large, the bed was comfortable, and we really enjoyed the food and the bar in the lobby. Nakia was our favorite and the bartender Justin was good, along with the various servers we encountered. All in all, a surprisingly well run little Inn! Highly recommended!

My associated made reservations here, and I was skeptical based upon reading the previous reviews of business people. Sounded great for leisure travelers however. Well, I can say it was perfect for this business traveler too! I stayed here mid week and found the bed very comfortable, the work table perfect,, the wifi fast, huge bathrooms, and great breakfasts! Plus, the restaurant was fantastic, as was the bar. The staff was efficient and charming actually. No complaints here. Sounds like many of the people who leave 3 and 4 stars just don't appreciate the fact that this property is not going to like a hampton inn or a courtyard. It is funky, but in a good way, and it just is attractively perky and very full of character. I was really quite impressed with the whole get up and the whole appalachian bistro concept too.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 20 ,a king bed, and good work space

The room was very nice - eclectic and cozy, just what we had hoped for. The restaurant was fantastic - our servers Steve and Matt were charismatic and knowledgable, and we had a lot of fun with them (we were there for a wedding rehearsal dinner). We ran into issues at check-out. Our rooms, along with the rest of the bridal party, were being paid for by the hosting family. The woman at the front desk had lost their card information or something, and was a bit rude / made little effort to understand the situation, insisting that she charge our cards. This happened to everyone in the group. It seems to me that when a client has booked several rooms for several nights / hosted a large dinner at your facility, you would be more inclined to be accommodating and understanding (and maybe take our card number just in case, but hold off on charging until you've made an effort to settle the situation).

This happened to the whole group, everyone was pretty irritated (especially the bride). Not the end of the world, but definitely a strike against an otherwise great stay.
