Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Chattanooga Downtown
Extremely clean hotel. Fantastic location and very friendly staff. Of course if you are staying that close to downtown expect a lot of people and some noise but well worth it.
Great location, but...
We recently completed an awards stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. You can't beat the location and the hotel itself was nice enough, but here are some things to be aware of:
1. We were confirmed in a non-smoking room. However, when we checked in, we were given a smoking room that had been treated with excessive air freshener. If you love Yankee Candle, you would love this room, but it definitely was not non-smoking. My sense was that the hotel was overbooked, and they were trying to get away with something. If you are sensitive to residual smoke or air freshener, be very careful. A confirmed non-smoking room really is not confirmed, and the hotel was completely uninterested and unresponsive to my request for a change. They said that "sorry, nothing else is available". If you've been overbooked out of a seat on an airline, you'll know the feeling.
2. This is a tourist, downtown hotel. For all of the convenience of location, it is noisy and full of kids and conventioneers. If you are at all bothered by noise, this is not the place. There really isn't much sound-proofing engineered into the building. If you like a party and kids running on the floors at 1:00 a.m., this is the place.
3. Try to find somewhere that still serves a complimentary breakfast. This isn't it.
Great reasonably priced hotel
Clean, spacious room in a convenient downtown location. Large rooms include useable refridgerator, ironing board, microwave and coffee maker. Look for bounce back rate for best rates including a generous breakfast. Small but adequate gym, pool and jaccuzzi. Close to all attractions and free shuttle bus. Only small bath, loud a/c and hidden parking costs ($5) prevent this from being 5 stars. Hotel highly recommended.
Excellent hotel and service
We also took everyone's advice and stayed here. Great hotel and location, our room was a King with a whirlpool tube in the main part of the room...a walk out balcconey on the top floor with chairs and table for two.
The pool and hot tub were small, but nobody was there so perfect for us. Great breakfast offerings and the service was outstanding.
Before we left we printed a coupon from the Chattanooga visitors website for a discount on the room...
Thanks to all those that posted before to tell us about this gem...
Great experience at the Hilton Garden
Based on reviews here, we spent Mother's Day weekend at the Hilton and agree that it's a great hotel value! Rates were reasonable, the room was very clean, the indoor pool was small but clean (and warm!) and parking was convenient and inexpensive ($5). The only meal served is breakfast, but there's a small snack/convenience area with snacks, drinks, even microwave dinners. The rooms have a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker so we were able to keep our own stash of snacks and drinks.
The hotel is close to everything downtown so we never needed the car. The aquarium, children's museum, Coolidge Park, baseball stadium, and restaurants were all within easy walking distance. There's also a free shuttle that picks up just next to the hotel that runs a loop around downtown.
Chattanooga is a fun, easy, "just-far-enough-away" weekend trip from Atlanta and we would absolutely stay at the Hilton again.
A wonderful mini vacation
Never knew whether to trust reviews I had read in the past but please believe me when I say this is real. We went to Chattanooga for the Easter weekend and had a WONDERFUL time. The Hilton was a perfect place to stay. It had everything we needed and even responded promptly for extra things (extra coffee, extra pillows, etc.) and were so willing to please you. The room and hotel was extremely clean. It is perfectly located where almost anything you do is accessible within walking distance. We loved walking out the back door and up the steps to a wonderful baseball game in a wonderful stadium. We even had a great view of fireworks at the stadium from our room window.
We had a wonderful experience at this hotel! We stayed for seven days so especially appreciated the fridge and microwave in the room. The check-in process was speedy and flawless. The room was modern, well decorated and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although we overlooked the street (and the construction across the street) we heard not a sound from the outside or adjoining rooms. With the Children's Museum next door and the Aquarium and I-Max Theater up the block we were well entertained. The indoor pool was small but clean and well enjoyed by my child. Parking was excellent at $5 per day and very close to the hotel entrance (20 yards, maybe?). The only negative was the limited restaurant choices in the downtown area but certainly not a deterrent for our next stay. Thanks, Hilton!
Mt husband and I stayed here recently for our first anniversary and we loved it! The staff is very friendly and helpful while their location to downtown attractions can't be beat. We walked to dinner, then to a movie (both within two blocks)! We visited under the "Bounceback" special with a great full breakfust included each morning. Although we didn't get a chance to use it, the indoor pool and spa looked nice.
When staying in Chattanooga in the future, I will definately stay at the Garden Inn.
Downtown Hilton in Chattanooga was great!
My family stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Chattanooga, Tennessee for 4 days and the Hotel and staff were terrific. Very clean with a nice indoor pool and suana. Only steps away from the IMAX theatre, literally right beside The Creative Discovery Museum, one block away from the Tennessee Aquarium and within spitting distance of Bell South Park, this hotel has a great location. It is a very short drive to the other attractions in Chattanooga. The breakfast at the hotel was great and the server was very nice. We got the "bounceback weekend" which was $99 a night with free breakfast each morning which was worth $20 itself.
Only drawback was having to pay $5 for parking each day but that was minor. Consider this hotel if you are in the Chattanooga area.
Enjoyed my stay at the Hilton
The Hilton Garden Inn in Chattanooga TN is a very nice, clean, comfortable and roomy hotel in downtown Chattanooga. We found the hotel to be very new. It was very clean and in a good neighborhood. You can walk to the Aquarium, Children's Museum, AAA baseball game, the free shuttle stops one block away and a movie theater. It was convenient and the price was reasonable. Very pleased.

... have a great setup in the back seat with a personal travel organizer complete with a folding tray for snacks. They have a cooler, DVD player and even the wii. We are doing screen time in moderation to break up the trip. Christian commented that if I don't represent him in a positive light in this blog that he will create a counter blog and title it "the real story of our family vacation." ...
So we successfully made it to Chattanooga. Christian booked all of the hotels that we are staying at and chose a historic hotel downtown that is very old. We got into our room and it was hot and smelled musty. I got very crabby worrying about it bothering Ty's Asthma and my sinuses. Long story short we got our room switched and it's much better. We've now headed across the street to a 50 styles diner. We all need food! We are getting ...
... three shows until the fall lineup comes out on the West End. I am working on figuring out the London tube system. I will talk with Miss Anna (student teacher from last year) who lived in London for almost a year about that and any fun ideas she might have. I have to catch her before she takes off for Chicago to become a fabulous teacher! Yea, Anna! Thanks to Public Education Foundation for granting this journey! I am so proud to be an FFT ...
... about all the pictures and first hand accounts I could bring back to my US History classroom made me giddy with excitement. To be able to share that experience with two top notch colleagues meant that we could bring back information that would challenge our students to read, analyze, write, argue, defend, support, and all of those other critical thinking skills that teachers are constantly trying to tap into with their kids.
Let the journey begin!!
... the tracks were almost vertical against the back window. Much to my disappointment there's actually no train in Chattanooga! After several hours waiting in a car park outside Chattanooga we eventually got the megabus to Atlanta (megabus us still trumps uk- our refund came through before we even boarded). We picked up another car, complete with free upgrade. 2 days in Atlanta consisted on the Coca Cola factory, the aquarium complete with dolphin show ...
