SOUTHERN COMFORT
Check In To this Tennessee Treasure


Chattanooga gets the upscale hotel it needed in the newly opened 202-room venue, Chattanoogan. In addition to views of Lookout Mountain from the rooms, the hotel evokes native Tennessee via a vaulted cedar ceiling and open stone fireplace in the grand but grounded lobby. The city’s chief attractions lie within walking distance of the hotel, but The Chattanoogan’s amenities — including spa, rooftop patio, forested courtyard, high-tech meeting rooms, steakhouse, and a bistro featuring live jazz — tempt guests to stay right where they are. Doubles from $119. (877) 756-1684, www.chattanooganhotel.com
