Fairfield Inn & Suites Chattanooga East Moving Across The Street

Monday, December 9, 2013

The Fairfield Inn & Suites Chattanooga East, after more than 20 years in the same building, is moving into a new building across the street.  

While the Hamilton Place hotel will be moving into a building that was completely renovated in 2012, the property will maintain the same website and contact information. The address, just across the street, and the new name are the only pieces of information that will change.

Guest rooms feature contemporary decor and the latest technology including free Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV. The site includes a fitness center and seasonal outdoor pool. 

The hotel will include an on-site bar featuring local flare from Chattanooga breweries that will be open daily from 4-11 p.m.

There is also a meeting room and board room.

Officials said, "The complimentary breakfast is new and improved, too, and offers hot items including scrambled eggs and sausage. Guests can enjoy the meal in the flexible seating areas while meeting with clients or planning a visit to the Tennessee Aquarium with the family. For meals on the go, the 24/7 Market offers snacks and beverages throughout the day."
