Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I was given a discount on a room.
After about an hour of riding around in Chattanooga and our Rock City adventure during our 24 hours in Chattanooga, checking our GPS and making phone calls, we found Springhill Suites Marriott at Cameron Harbor. The interesting thing about this hotel is it is the only hotel on the river. There was another hotel with a river view and a few others nearby but we knew what we looking for so we made our decision.
The staff was excellent, which is no surprise as they are ranked third in the country for customer service of all the Springhill Suites. They are going for the first place slot and my money would be on them if I were a betting girl. The front desk was most helpful and efficient. Amy, the desk clerk on duty, went above and beyond in making sure we had what we needed and that we were satisfied with the accommodations. She made an excellent recommendation for a place to eat in the Bluff View area, an artsy part of downtown.
We walked across a glass bridge above passing traffic below as we were looking for a place to grab a dessert. That was kind of fun and not something I do every day, but I have gotten off topic. I want to tell you more about Springhill Suites!
Springhill Suites at Cameron Harbor was a quiet setting (which I love) but only a ½ mile to the Aquarium, The Block, which is a parking garage with a huge rock climbing wall on the outside of the building, and a couple of dozen restaurants. Our room had a private balcony that was right on the river. This may sound lame but we spent more than a minute or two looking at fish swimming below from our fourth floor room, and throwing Wheat Thins for the fish, turtles and ducks to go for. Most didn’t.
Springhill Suites was clean and pleasingly decorated. The sleek lines of the décor added to the overall ambiance of the hotel. I must admit, I am very picky about the places I stay. I have changed hotels mid-stay more times than I care to say, just ask my kids. I have high standards when it comes to a room. Springhill Suites definitely passed my test.
There is a lovely courtyard with a fire pit at Springhill Suites. The night was warm and muggy so we passed on that bit of relaxation but the other features were nice too: an indoor pool with a Jacuzzi, and an exercise room.
I did actually use one of these….not for a real workout, more like a try-out.
Springhill Suits serves a complimentary breakfast each morning which includes both hot and cold selections. I truly can’t say enough good things about the place. I would definitely stay there again for a number of reasons. Being on the river, close to town with many attractions close at hand, not to mention the place itself, well let’s just say I highly recommend Springhill Suites Marriott at Cameron Harbor.
A great place to write a blog post.
A comfy bed with a view of the river. Hard to get up!
There was a complimentary breakfast with both hot and cold offerings. The dining area was clean and well-stocked. There was a mart that had many items ready for purchase.
The entire place had an appeal that was pleasing to the eye and inviting for all. I just can’t say enough good things about Springhill Suites Marriott in Chattanooga. I would definitely stay there again!
We were well rested and fed and ready for the rest of our stay during our 24 hours in Chattanooga.
