If you or someone you know is planning a wedding at Chattanooga wedding venue, Howe Farms, you may be scouring the internet for unique places to stay in Chattanooga. This big little city is teeming with character, lots of sights to see, and many interesting things to do. From Point Park to Rock City to the infamous Ruby Falls to local craft breweries and amazing restaurants, you and/or your out-of-town wedding guests will have a field day bopping around town, checking off all the tourist attractions along the way. As many cool things as there are to do and see here, there are just as many charming places to stay, and here are a few to check out before booking.
The Chattanooga Choo Choo
This one is an all out legend, friends. Located smack in the heart of downtown, the Chattanooga Choo Choo is a must see even if you don’t stay here. In 1909, the Terminal Station opened as the first railway station in the south, and in 1974, the Choo Choo Hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places. History meets comfort at this absolute classic.
The Moxy Chattanooga
If you’re looking for something a little more hip, check out the Moxy Chattanooga. This southside Chattanooga hotel is “made for the young and the young at heart.” Stylish and chic, the lobby greets you with a full bar, colorful artwork, modern furnishings, and a lot of personality. If you’re into cocktails, nightlife, and fun, fun, fun, this might be the pick for you.
The Crash Pad
Quirky, conveniently-located, and totally affordable, the Crash Pad is Chattanooga’s mod and eco-friendly hostel, and we’re using the term “hostel” loosely. Think inexpensive, community-centric accommodations but without the sketch factor that often accompanies hostel stays. Popular among rock climbers and outdoor enthusiasts, the Crash Pad is just off Main Street, right next door to one of Chattanooga’s favorite local cocktail bars, the Flying Squirrel.
Cloudland Canyon Yurts
Feeling adventurous? How about a little yurt camping at the gorgeous Cloudland Canyon State Park? Located just about 45 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, this favorite local spot for hiking and outdoor recreation features 10, surprisingly fancy yurts perfect for a fun and memorable experience. The yurts are heated, sleep up to six people, and are located within a short walk of incredible overlooks and waterfalls you won’t want to miss.
Sleep in a tree! This lodging pick, Treetop Hideaways, is extra unique, and there are only two treehouse rentals, so book early. These Chattanooga-area tiny-home-esque treehouses are situated smartly in the woods with floor to ceiling windows, fire pits to roast marshmallows around, and just the right amount of solitude.
One of Chattanooga’s newer hotel options, Hotel Indigo is located in the West Village within walking distance of delicious local restaurants and lots of things to do and see. This boutique hotel features 117 spacious rooms with a modern flair, a state-of-the-art, on-site fitness center, and a beautiful restaurant/bar to check out during your stay.
The Dwell Hotel
The Dwell is a boutique hotel and a favorite spot for local photographers, because every inch of it is perfectly curated, oozing with mid century modern style. Luxurious but accessible and delightfully retro, this might be one of the most Instagrammable spots in all of Chattanooga. If you decide to stay here, check out the on-site tiki bar, the Night Pearl, and grab a truly special brunch at Syrup and Eggs. You won’t regret it. They have vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options too if that’s your jam.
Regardless of where you stay in Chattanooga, we look forward to hosting you for your event at Howe Farms. We also have on-site lodging to make it easy and convenient for our wedding parties, so let us know when you book your event if you have interest in booking any of our houses or apartments for the days surrounding your wedding or event.
