Breakfast With Santa | Saturday, Nov. 29 | 9 – 11 am
We seriously do not remember having breakfast with Santa, ever, but in Tennessee it’s a thing. Bring the kids for The Chattanoogan’s Breakfast with Santa when children can tell the man in red how good they’ve been all year, while enjoying a delicious breakfast and carolers performing holiday tunes.

Tickets are $21.95 for adults; $10.95 for children 6-12, and children under six are free. Reservations are required.
Santa will also be making regular appearances at The Chattanoogan’s Sunday Champagne Brunch each week, running November 30 until before Christmas.
NEW: Caroling | Saturdays: 3 – 6 pm | Sundays: 1 – 4 pm
A new tradition for the season kicks off on Sunday afternoon at the end of the month with Christmas carolers serenading guests in the hotel’s grand lobby.

There’s also going to be a hot chocolate bar and gingerbread cookies while guests learn about cookie decorating.
