Hamilton Place Mall's expansion at the site of the former Sears store got another boost Monday.

A 135-room Aloft by Marriott hotel will join the previously announced Dave & Buster's game center at the mall in eastern Chattanooga.

The Cheese Factory recently opened their 200th location in the same general area at the mall.

“We are thrilled to partner with Chattanooga-based Vision Hospitality Group to bring the unique experience of Aloft to Chattanooga as part of the Hamilton Place Sears redevelopment project,” said Stephen Lebovitz, chief executive officer of CBL Properties. “We are actively executing our vision to transform our properties into suburban town centers that offer visitors a variety of experiences. The addition of Aloft by Marriott complements the broader redevelopment plans at Hamilton Place, which include the addition of The Cheesecake Factory, Dave & Busters as well as class ‘A’ office space, additional dining options and new retail.”

The Aloft brand of Marriott hotels use technology and design to keep up with the needs of the modern traveler.

The Aloft Chattanooga Hamilton Place will feature an urban-inspired design with loft-like guestrooms, featuring airy 9-foot ceilings and keyless entry using your smartphone or Apple Watch.
