The Chattanoogan Hotel Earns the Coveted AAA Four Diamond Award for the Fourth Year in a Row


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (May 24, 2011) – Benchmark Hospitality International’s The Chattanoogan has been awarded the esteemed AAA Four Diamond Rating for the fourth time. The Chattanoogan is the only full-service hotel in Chattanooga to receive the designation, and one of only 16 in the state to receive the honor. Lodgings at the Four Diamond Rating offer an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail.


“We are extremely honored to receive the valued AAA Four Diamond Rating again,” said Tom Cupo, General Manager of The Chattanoogan. “At The Chattanoogan, we are committed to providing excellent hospitality and a memorable experience that exceeds guest expectations. The Four Diamond Rating acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our wonderful team of professionals.”


“Four Diamond establishments consistently deliver attentive service and notable offerings in high-quality, comfortable surroundings,” said Michael Petrone, AAA Director of Tourism Information Development. “To achieve and maintain exceptional standards on a daily basis is a commendable achievement. AAA is pleased to recognize The Chattanoogan as an outstanding member of the hospitality industry.”


The Chattanoogan is part of a select group within the hospitality industry. In 2011, only 3.6 percent of the more than 59,000 AAA Approved and Diamond Rated lodgings and restaurants across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean received the designation.


The AAA Four Diamond-rated The Chattanoogan, a 210,000 square-foot five-story upscale hotel with 199 newly renovated guest rooms and suites, has three outstanding restaurants, a 25,000 square-foot conference center with comprehensive meeting planning and audiovisual support services, and a spa with four treatment rooms, a steam room, sauna, fitness center, indoor pool, whirlpool, and patio overlooking the hotel’s courtyard.


The property is conveniently located within a two-hour drive from Atlanta; Nashville, Tenn.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Huntsville, Ala.; and Birmingham, Ala. It is within walking distance of the city’s museums, galleries, retail stores, restaurants and The Tennessee Aquarium.
