CHATTANOOGA, TN--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - From October 3rd through November 4th, participants in the Torch Relay for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals traveled across the U.S. on the Miles for Miracles campaign to raise money for their local children's hospital. While the team passed through town, the Residence Inn Chattanooga Near Hamilton Place was proud to offer them complimentary Chattanooga accommodations to support their efforts.
The actions of this Hamilton Place, Chattanooga, TN hotel align directly with those of Marriott International, which has supported the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals as its first corporate sponsor.
