CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (February 6, 2014) – The Chattanoogan hotel, a Benchmark Hotel® and the city’s only AAA Four Diamond-rated full-service property, is giving families complimentary tickets to the city’s most popular attractions during Spring Break. When families stay at the upscale hotel for two or more nights over Spring Break, they will receive free tickets to either the Tennessee Aquarium and IMAX or Rock City and Ruby Falls.
Rates start at $169 per night and are based on a two-night stay for a family of two adults and two children. The packages may be modified for additional family members. The offer is available from Friday, March 14 – Sunday, April 20.

At the Tennessee Aquarium, the interactive Keeper Kids Program is a highlight of Spring Break in Chattanooga. The educational adventure gives children the chance to get close to some of the Aquarium’s most amazing animals and discover what it is like to care for them. Little ones may choose two of the 16 different activities offered throughout the day, with each program lasting approximately 15 minutes. Options include releasing butterflies; feeding partridges and Palawan peacock pheasant; going behind the scenes with SCUBA divers; recording penguin observations; and feeding animals in the Secret Reef. Keeper Kids activities are free with Aquarium admission and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Before or after exploring the Tennessee Aquarium, guests will be able to enjoy the largest IMAX theatre in the region, just a block from the Aquarium. The six-story screen offers one of the most engaging movie experiences in the world. During Spring Break, movie selections are the new “Journey to the South Pacific 3D,” “Great White Shark 3D” and “Penguins 3D.”
Another popular family destination, Rock City, Ruby Falls and the Incline Railway, are located just a few miles from The Chattanoogan atop Lookout Mountain. Visitors marvel at seven states when visiting Rock City. At Ruby Falls, families explore underground and experience the majesty of America’s largest underground waterfall that is accessible to the public. The Incline Railway’s trolley-style cars take guests through the natural beauty surrounding the historic mountain at a breathtaking 72.7% grade straight up, making it the steepest passenger railway in the world.
After a fun day of exploring, families will appreciate The Chattanoogan’s beautiful surroundings and relaxed atmosphere. Children will be delighted with the indoor swimming pool that has spectacular views of Lookout Mountain, and parents will enjoy the fitness facility and incredible spa services available at The Spa at The Chattanoogan.
The Chattanoogan’s Broad Street Grille, a favorite of parents and children, has a children’s menu with numerous selections for young guests. Strouds, The Chattanoogan’s sidewalk espresso café, features delectable made-to-order sandwiches and salads, daily homemade soups, pastries, desserts, and a variety of unique gourmet coffees and teas.
