CHATTANOOGA, TN--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2013) - Chattanooga is known for many things, from car manufacturers like Volkswagen that operate there, to stunning natural attractions like Ruby Falls and Rock City, to the Head of the Hooch, one of the world's largest rowing regattas that happens every year on the first Saturday and Sunday of November.

A new lobby invites large and small groups to gather and relive the day's highlights, while an indoor pool, fitness center and putting green offer several ways to unwind after a day spent cheering on the teams. After the regatta ends, guests can then capitalize on this Chattanooga, Tennessee hotel's easy proximity to the shopping and dining options in Hamilton Place, not to mention the abundance of natural and historic sights nearby.
