Hotel Anchors West End Transformation

Friday, December 1, 2017

The Westin Chattanooga and the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated the hotel’s recent opening with an official ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration. 

“Our vision for this property is to offer a luxury option for our local residents and visitors to the city; we are seeing a great response from our community as well as from business travelers and tourists,” said Jay Raynor, director of hospitality assets at The Westin Chattanooga. “What we are most proud of is how this hotel has transformed the West End and launched multiple other businesses and investments. Where storefronts stood empty a year ago, we’re seeing a boom in new businesses, with multiple restaurants and bars on the way.” 

The hotel is centrally located at 801 Pine St. It has 260 rooms and offers quick access to Highway 27, the Southside, the business district and the riverfront. 

The hotel embraces Chattanooga’s outdoor scene and offers morning runs, led by a wellbeing expert in the brand’s signature Let’s Rise program, that will traverse the Chattanooga Riverwalk and the pedestrian-only Walnut Street Bridge.  

Hotel amenities include rooftop dining by fireside at Alchemy and Dorato Lobby Bar, as well as sandwiches and salads at the MarketPlace by Westin; all are open to the public. Guests at the Westin can take advantage of the gardens and outdoor patios as well as in-room spa services.
