CHATTANOOGA, TN—Embassy Suites Hotels introduced its new upscale, full-service, all-suites Embassy Suites Chattanooga - Hamilton Place to local officials and community members last Friday.
The Design Option III hotel includes 203 suites and 10,000 square feet of meeting space. The new development by Chattanooga Hotel Property Investment and Legacy Property Group is part of the Waterside mixed-use complex at Shallowford Road and I-75, in Chattanooga.
Designed by PFVS Architecture and Carver & Associates, the hotel is located near the Hamilton Place Mall and Volkswagen’s new assembly plant. Waterside also houses numerous retail shops and restaurants including h.h. gregg, Mellow Mushroom, and Bridget Davis Salon.
The brand’s Design Option III style decreases the amount of land needed and offers flexible design features through side-by-side suites, shotgun suites and one-room suites, in addition to a contemporary atrium area.
The grand opening celebration included an official ribbon cutting ceremony and tour of the property. Attendees included: Jim Coppinger, mayor of Hamilton County; Alan Roberts, VP of brand performance support, Embassy Suites Hotels; Byron and Ken DeFoor, principals, Chattanooga Hotel Property Investment; David Marvin, president, Legacy Property Group and Legacy Hotel Partners; Paul Mezick, general manager, Embassy Suites Chattanooga - Hamilton Place; Mark and Nancy Oswald, co-owners and franchisees, Ruth’s Chris Steak House; and Ron Harr, president and CEO, Greater Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce.
