The Chattanoogan Hotel Is Truly Special Chattanooga, TN


Wow, what can I say… The Chattanoogan Hotel is truly special. A luxury hotel with magical views of Lookout Mountain and conveniently located in downtown Chattanooga, TN. It is easy to fall head over heels with The Chattanoogan. 

The decor was so nice and vibrant, and also decorated so lovely for Christmas.  My family was truly in awe the minute we walked into the lobby.

When we travel, I love to explore all offered within the accommodations, locally and from a tourist standpoint. The Chattanoogan had it all. It is simply beautiful and located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga with plenty of entertainment options within the hotel.  The staff were all so warm and welcoming.  I really felt as though this was the perfect stay. We were there four days and three night with our baby girls. We checked in on Christmas Day which made it even more special. 

The Perfect Accommodations

We had the perfect accommodations with traveling with my daughters. Yes, we got adjoining rooms! I am just going to be honest about this. These accommodations are a must when traveling as a family. So the children have their own accommodations and the hubby and I can have our own privacy while still being right there.

Try getting ready with a shared bathroom with three girls! It can get pretty hectic. We had the luxury of having two bathrooms and it worked out nicely. It is truly a logical preference when traveling and it is often very affordable compared to a two bedroom suite.


Location, Location, Location

When you come to Chattanooga, you come for the beautiful views of Lookout Mountain, the downtown attractions, as well as our favorite Tennessee Aquarium. Most important you want to stay somewhere that is in the heart of everything. The Chattanoogan Hotel offers just that. It is in the perfect location and within walking distance to dining, shopping and even a shuttle!

The Really Awesome Valet

This really awesome valet won my hubby over from the beginning. Rarely do we select valet service as a family because when he is present he lets the girls and I out at the door, and then he self-parks. Well, we chose valet service during our stay and it was the best decision we made.  From the moment you pull up, the bellhops are there to greet you and make sure your luggage and things are properly delivered to your room. They park your car for you and take the stress out of your vacation.

The Amazing Indoor Pool

We were thrilled when we discovered The Chattanoogan offered an indoor pool. My girls thought it was pretty cool to be able to swim when it was cold outside. We enjoyed the pool every single night!  The lighting set the mood just right. With glass windows from floor to ceiling, mini palm trees around the pool, you truly felt you were in your own oasis. During the day you can enjoy the beautiful views of The Lookout Mountain just right outside.  


The Cutest Coffee Shop

Strouds Sidewalk Cafe

Our rooms had a Keurig which was a nice touch, but there is nothing liking having coffee in a cute and cozy cafe. We had coffee at Stroud’s Sidewalk Cafe every morning and loved it. This cafe is loaded with Southern charm and offers really delicious & fresh coffee. The ladies are super friendly and they make your coffee or cappuccinos just the way you like them. Of course, my girls enjoyed their hot chocolate. They serve delicious sandwiches, salads, soups and even desserts too! 

The Tasty Broad Street Grille

The Broad Street Grille Is definitely a restaurant you’ll want to dine at. This was some of the “yummiest” as my baby said and it was really tasty.  Chef Roe and his dynamic team do not disappoint. They roll out the red carpet everyday and present a regional favorite plus present an awesome kids meal and fixings. I am a steak and potatoes kind of girl so I had the NY Strip- which was out of this world.

My husband had the Pan Seared Salmon Fillet and Red Pepper Risotta.

My sister-in-law had this beautiful Caesar salad paired nicely with this Shrimp Creole.

The breakfast options at the Broad Street Grille were absolutely perfect. They serve breakfast buffet style with your choice of freshly made omelets with all the fixings. We have some unique eaters and they nailed it with their selection.

The dining options and menu selection at Broad Street Grille is outstanding!

The Chattanoogan was truly special and yes we will be back to again to experience the spa. I would highly recommend The Chattanoogan for a getaway, retreat, family vacation or romantic trip. It is perfect in so many ways.
