Getting Around

Hotel Image
The Chattanoogan Hotel

The Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport is 20 minutes from the hotel; however, it is a fairly small airport with limited flights.

The AGA recommends considering flights into Atlanta or Nashville as alternatives as they may offer better pricing/schedules. It's about a 90-minute drive to the hotel from either location.

The Chattanoogan Hotel 423.756.340
1201 Broad Street 
Chattanooga, TN 37402  

The AGA suggests renting a car or to set up a ride through Groome Transportation which has daily shuttles from the Nashville and Atlanta airports. Once on site, a car is not necessary as there is a free shuttle that runs around downtown Chattanooga and Uber/Lyft are available. 

Time & Temperature

Expect temperatures to range from high 70s to low 80s during the day and upper 50s at night.  Chattanooga is on Eastern Time; however, some surrounding areas are on Central Time. Please note, all times for TechForum are listed in Eastern Time.
