Embassy Suites by Hilton Chattanooga Downtown Commences Construction

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee—Vision Hospitality Group Inc. held a groundbreaking ceremony for the seven-story 184-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton Chattanooga Downtown. Located in downtown Chattanooga, the Embassy Suites Chattanooga Downtown will have a rooftop bar, a street-level bar and coffee area in an open lobby style, a leasable restaurant space, and 5,000 total square feet of meeting space. The property is near the Tennessee Aquarium, Hunter Museum of American Art, National Medal of Honor Heritage Museum, and Tennessee Riverpark festivals and events.

With an investment of $54 million, the property can provide an economic boost to the destination with more than 100 jobs ranging from senior management positions, guest service agents, housekeepers, and more. With a construction timeline of approximately two years led by Humphreys and Associates Contractors, LLC, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Chattanooga Downtown is expected to open in the summer of 2025.

This hotel will be a favorite for locals and an idyllic location for guests with its rooftop and lobby level bar in the heart of the city, enhancing the experience for anyone visiting the destination,” says Mitch Patel, president and CEO of Vision Hospitality Group. “This project is our first Embassy Suites hotel and we know the brand’s value-added services are a perfect fit for this location welcoming both corporate and leisure travelers.”
