"We very much enjoyed our room and visit. We stayed two nights and each following morning the breakfast was very good. Loved the architecture and high ceilings. The room was very comfortable and the neighborhood and location great. The staff members we met were very welcoming and helpful. Loved just sitting our on the porch at night. Chattanooga was a nice surprise too."

"What a marvelous welcome from our hosts and great to stay somewhere that has loads of character and style. We only stayed one night but the hospitality was excellent and we loved sitting out on the porch in the evening chatting to some of the other guests. Would recommend as a great change from the big hotels."

"We had a four night stay at the Mayor's Mansion several weeks ago. It was SO enjoyable! The Inn itself is a beautiful, historic building. The rooms are well-appointed with all amenities. The staff is very helpful, and the owners are wonderful people. It was always exciting to go down for breakfast each morning to sit in the elegant dining room for a delicious breakfast accompanied by hot coffee and great service. One afternoon, the owners were generous and friendly enough to join us on the sprawling porch for some good conversation in the sunshine. I would recommend Mayor's Mansion to anyone anytime."

"My wife and I recently stayed here, as part of a visit to Chattanooga, on our road trip from New York to Alabama. The accommodations were outstanding, the breakfast was top notch, and the hosts (owners) Mark and Cindy were most gracious! This is a beautiful old home that has been impeccably maintained. We only had a 24-hour stopover in Chattanooga, and wanted to make the most of our time there. Mark and Cindy provided very helpful info and suggestions re points of interest, restaurants, etc. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Chattanooga!"
