Residence Inn by Marriott Chattanooga Downtown

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We've stayed here a number of times (mainly because it is one of, maybe the only, pet friendly hotel option downtown) and have always been very satisfied. It is convenient to restaurants, bars, and activities and is literally next door to the Chattanooga Lookouts ballpark. Free gated parking lot and a decent hot breakfast bar are included in the room rate. Each and every one of the staff members is friendly and helpful. A special shout out to Ms. Rita in housekeeping for the great job she did. We'll definitely be back and I can highly recommend this hotel.

Terrific location in downtown Chattanooga, we were upgraded to a lovely suite with kitchenette and spacious living room. Comfortable bed, free breakfast and parking, this is a friendly and perfect choice for a visit. Close to all the attractions, we would stay here again next time we visit.

Enjoyed many stays at the Residence Inn in downtown Chattanooga. Prefect location to walk to many sites and activities. Wonderful staff and very courteous. Our family loves this location while visiting Chattanooga.

The room is very thoughtfully laid out and designed, in fact the whole place is. No wasted space but doesn't feel crowded either. Coffee in the lobby 24 hours a day is really nice. Room has everything you would need (we didn't cook though and only used the coffee maker and a couple of plates.) Parking and check in are so easy. reasonable prices. Lots of places to plug in your devices. Modern looking. The pool looked a little small and boring, we didn't use it because we were busy doing other things. Quiet. Hotel staff as others have pointed out is really nice, eager to help, from the front desk to the cleaning and food people. Room was cleaner upon arrival than most I've stayed. We were here during an off peak weekend so I can't say how it would be during spring etc. Breakfast in the morning was A OK. With another trip to the area, this would be our first choice.

Super nice hotel which was clean and quiet. Carolyn at front desk was very accommodating and helpful. The evening happy hour saved us from having to buy dinner that nice. The woman managing the food was very nice. Unfortunately I do not remember her name but she was patient in spite guests making a mess and snarfing down the food. Breakfast in the morning was equally delicious. Location of hotel was within walking distance of aquarium which I highly recommend. I would definitely stay here again.

The staff here is so friendly! Always helpful and smiling. Room was a good size. We did not use the kitchen a lot but it was equipped for everything we needed. Location is awesome, walking distance to everything!

We stayed here on Thursday, December 21, 2017 while visiting Chattanooga and Rock City Garden of Enchanted Lights. The hotel has a very convenient location close to many restaurants, the aquarium and easily within walking distance to most of downtown. The check in was a very pleasant experience. Later that evening we discussed our visit to Rock City with the same lady we checked in with. She was very helpful and friendly. If you want a very convenient hotel location in the heart of downtown this is an excellent choice.

This Residence Inn was, by far, the worst hotel in which I've stayed. I have stayed at several hotels for business and pleasure, and I was extremely disappointed with the (lack of) service. I was shocked at how this hotel did not meet even the basic necessities of any standard hotel. The only thing nice about this hotel is the prime location. Do not be fooled by it's four-star rating. Here is how my experience was: -Checked in around 7:45pm. Lady at front desk was rude and unhelpful. Clearly did not want to be there. This is the hospitality industry. Be hospitable. -Room was NOT CLEAN! Used Skoal can in kitchen (disgusting), dirty dishes, only 2 fresh towels, someone's hair in bathtub -Surprising amount of dust everywhere -Room keys didn't work on our room, hotel entrance, or parking entrance. Had to get them precoded twice. -To top it off, the bed was extremely uncomfortable and very squeaky Utilize your money on some place worth it, and book elsewhere. There are far better hotels in Downtown.

We so enjoyed this Residence Inn. The staff was great. Lovely one bedroom (room 205). Good variety for breakfast. Thanks to the hard working team in the breakfast area and at the desk who worked on Thanksgiving, along with the maintenance and housekeeping team. You were great! This is located in walking distance to the aquarium and some great restaurants. It’s a dog friendly hotel.

Stayed at this Residence Inn because we were visiting my daughter who attends UTC. Great location. Comfortable room. A bit older than other RI properties I’ve stayed at before but overall it worked out perfectly. Pool was nice and heated. Gym was basic but functional. Several restaurants in easy walking distance. A good 4 star. Nice people.
