The Westin Chattanooga at 801 Pine Street in Chattanooga, Tennessee will certainly impress guests longing for some comfort while visiting the downtown area. The location should be a big selling point for visitors who choose to walk to the many local excursions and restaurants. The property is across the street from the delicious Old Gilman Grill and a short jog to tourist areas such as the Tennessee Aquarium and the Tennessee River.
Mask wearing cowboys greet car riders for valet service in front. While there are nearby meters to park at, the quick and efficient convenience of having someone park your vehicle safely is a plus.
Marketplace by Westin in the lobby has a hearty selection of items to grab and go when a long day of vacationing and exploring is planned.
Restaurants inside the hotel like the Alimentari Bar in the lobby and the Paloma Bar de Tapas on the tenth floor are perfect areas to unwind after returning from a long day.
The 10-story luxury hotel contains 260 guest rooms that surround the spacious elevators. There's plenty of room to social distance from others on the property both indoor and outdoor. Blackout curtains, a cozy bed with four pillows and a quiet atmosphere all aided in peaceful resting after a long, winding journey to this neck of the woods.
The bathroom was massive with powerful lighting and large walk-in shower. Having a small bathroom nightlight might not seem like a big deal, but every hotel should invest in items that make a huge difference in when sleeping in a new place. A robe, a coffee maker and iron were all at the ready for those that like easy to grab amenities.
A fitness studio and outside heated pool with cabanas along the interior wall added a nice touch to staying at The Westin.
The helpful and friendly staff were on hand to assist guests in anything they needed during their visit. Pack your masks as they are currently required on the property and the staff adheres to the guidelines while still managing to make things feel personal.
Cleanliness has become even more important these days and the rooms were well attended by the support staff to maintain a safe environment as they reset the room each day after tidying up.
Noticeable small details such as a recyclable trashcan were onhand for those looking to be responsible with their waste products. Hopefully, the plastic cards for entry to the rooms will eventually end in the future so careless tourists won't lose the card and instead will begin using a code or phone entry system.
Overall, The Westin Chattanooga didn't have many things to improve on with a well thought out execution by Marriott that towers above the rest. Visit WestinChattanooga.com or call 423-531-4653 for more information on booking a stay today!
