Until recently, finding a hotel room in Chattanooga meant choosing between a single or double bed in one of a half-dozen family-centered chain hotels. But now, choices have expanded to include a proliferation of higher-end hotels offering stylish design, plush amenities and thoughtful details on the level you'd find at a top hotel in a major metropolis.
Whether you're looking for a luxurious staycation retreat, a place to impress an out-of-town visitor or get ready for or celebrate a special event, Chattanooga's luxury hotel offerings have you covered. Here's a look at the most lavish downtown hotel suites in the Scenic City.
The most desirable rooms at The Edwin hotel are its four riverfront suites, with sweeping views of the Walnut Street Bridge from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the sitting area as well as the expansive balcony with glass railings. The separate sleeping area features a custom, locally made MurMaid mattress dressed in Italian Frette linens, the gold standard of luxury linens. More than 500 European royal families have slept between the brand's sheets. Guests can borrow albums from The Edwin's fifth-floor listening library to play on their in-room Crosley record player, or receive assistance from the room's voice-controlled Amazon Echo Dot. Like the rest of the hotel, which features a rooftop pool, the rooms' décor blends classic Southern design elements with a modern, sophisticated look for an effect that's intended to be both familiar and surprising.
