It was ok!

This is mainly a hotel now but the grand central station is still worth the visit. The inside is beautiful and still holds the historic mind set of the past. Loved it!

Our granddaughter loves trains and to be able to sleep in a train car was priceless. She kept telling us to sit down because we were on a train.

This train hotel is one of my favorite places in Chattanooga. The grand terminal is beautiful, a sight to behold for those of us who appreciate architecture from the past. The rest of the complex features several stores, including one where you can be photographed with one of their outfits, in black and white. I chose confederate general! They also... More

Overall, the complex was rundown. Train was neat to see. Garden area was lacking. Gift shop was average. Lobby was neat but lackluster

Who knew that the old, retired trays are also hotel rooms and part of the historic hotels of Chattanooga? the rooms are varied, quaint and comfortable. The Choo Choo does not disappoint!

Great place to take the family. the kids love to see the train up close. They have a Great restaurant in the same place and the kids love going to listen to the singing waitresses. Plus great food!

being in Chattanooga, we could not leave without seeing the choo-choo. Just a train, but preserved well. They have turned this into a trendy hotel. Worth the drive into town, but it is a one time visit.

OK, I understand that the Choo Choo is famous and you have to go and see it. But when you get there I bet you wonder why they haven't made more of it......
