Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The historic Georgian-style building is in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, allowing guests convenient access to the charming neighborhood and riverfront. The city’s free electric shuttle stops every five minutes right outside the hotel’s front door.
  • A 1920s-era ballroom feels like stepping back in time, with a soaring ceiling hung with original crystal chandeliers, a black-and-white checkered dance floor, silver-leafed woodwork, and rows of mirrors that reflect the romantic glimmer of candlelight.
  • Guests will love the boutique accommodations, which feature Drexel heritage furniture, plush beds, city views, as well as the hotel’s fabulous amenities—including a decadent indoor “zero-edge” pool.
