The Chattanoogan Hotel Renovates its Meeting Space
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (March 6, 2013) – The Chattanoogan hotel, Chattanooga’s only AAA Four Diamond-rated full-service hotel and the only IACC-certified hotel in the state of Tennessee, is finalizing renovations to its 25,000 square-foot conference facilities. The refurbishment includes new carpet and wallcoverings; the addition of a stunning new glass tile entry wall; recovering of acoustical wall panels; replacing upholstered seating; updating the refreshment island; enhancing the corridor lighting; and transforming the area which housed traditional phone booths into a new contemporary cyber café with charging stations and seating.
All of The Chattanoogan’s high-tech meeting rooms are being reenergized with the new modern designs and upgraded with custom enhancements. A variety of new carpet patterns in beautiful shades of blue, brown, gold and red refresh the meeting space. The integration of warm and cool colors that are used reflects the dynamic architecture of the hotel. Some of the custom carpet patterns replicate scenes from Chattanooga, including topography of rolling hills and flowing patterns resembling the Tennessee River.
The new wall coverings are in soft, subtle shades of neutrals and grays with a variety of understated patters and designs. Cream colored large-scale leafy patterns and botanicals mix beautifully with the eclectic artwork displayed in the meeting space.
One of the most striking areas of the renovation is the new glass tile entry wall. Made of small, rectangular mosaic tiles in metallic gray and silver, the iridescenthues shimmer like water and appear as if water is flowing down the wall.
The Chattanoogan’s Refreshment Island, which gives meeting guests the opportunity to enjoy tremendous variety throughout their meetings, was also updated with quartz colored creams, browns and golds and new serving areas.
The Chattanoogan’s 25,000 square-foot conference center features a high-tech learning environment with comprehensive meeting planning and audiovisual support services. All of The Chattanoogan’s 20 meeting rooms, including the 16-seat circular boardroom and amphitheater with seating for 85, offer complete networking capabilities and high-speed wireless.
