Hamilton Place now has more hotel rooms than downtown Chattanooga

Posted: Updated:

A new six-story hotel opens in East Brainerd today at Hamilton Place Mall, adding 134 rooms to the nearly 2,000 hotel rooms now available within a mile of the mall.

Chattanooga hotel developer Vision Hospitality Group, Inc. opened the new Hampton Inn & Suites at 2014 Hamilton Place Blvd. The $14 million project will cater to business travelers and offers about 1,300 square feet of meeting space to accommodate events for as many as 100 people.

The new inn underscores the slow explosion of hotel lodging in the area around Exit 5 on I-75. Two dozen hotels are clustered in the neighborhood, which is close to the Chattanooga airport and major economic drivers like Volkswagen and Amazon. But the area pulls from the region, not just from local businesses, said Mitch Patel, Vision Hospitality president and CEO.
