If you’re thinking spa getaway that is both elegant and unpretentious – a place where you can get top-of-the-line service and treatments while letting your hair down and really relaxing – head to The Chattanoogan Hotel in Chattanooga, Tenn.
This urban chic retreat in Chattanooga’s Southside district has it all: 198 sumptuous guestrooms, excellent dining choices, a location just a bit removed from the hubbub of downtown but close to warehouse shops, galleries and open-air market . . . and tranquil full-service day spa.
In fact, as soon as you step inside this AAA Four Diamond-rated full-service resort you’ll notice that every element is designed to help you relax: a soothing earthy color palette, stretches of burnished cherry wood and stone flooring with wrought iron railing accents, a warming fire sparking in a massive see-through hearth, hushed hallways, murmured conversations.
And that’s before you even reach The Spa with its illuminated wall in the anteroom and calming aromatherapy scents that reach your nose before you lie down in one of the darkened treatment rooms. Located on the second floor, The Spa complex comprises a steam room, sauna, whirlpool, indoor pool and fitness center. The Spa Terrace, overlooking the hotel’s courtyard, is a relaxing place to enjoy a drink or light meal before or after your spa indulgence.
