My daughter and I zoomed off the freeway on a whim to see the Chattanooga Choo Choo and were glad we did. We found free parking and enjoyed our walk around the historic station now a beautiful hotel. They were setting out a buffet lunch and the desserts looked pretty spectacular but we had unfortunately just eaten. Gift shop was... More

At first, we were a little scared to get out of the car because the neighborhood looked a little unsafe, but it turned out to be fine. The old train station checkin area was very authentic and quaint. Our room was clean and large and we overlooked the lazy river type pool. It was very nice.

Well, actually the model trains were awesome themselves but not the experience overall seeing them. Some of the buttons for interacting with the trains didn't work. It seemed like the entire exhibit just wasn't kept up that much. It looked really run down inside and outside the building. I think this place has seen its better days. An occasional smile... More

I was thinking about staying here with the wife, but decided to RV the trip with the grandchildren. What appealed to me was sleeping in the old railway cars and cabooses. After seeing the place I'm already thinking about going back. The lobby is huge and gorgeous, the bar a view of times past, and even the meeting rooms are... More

Nice attraction. Well laid out with easy access. My dad's a great Glen Miller fan so we too lots of photos to wind him up, lol. Staff were most helpful and eager to help and they were quite knowlegable as well. Well worth a visit

While our family didn't stay at Chattanooga Choo Choo, we did visit. We strolled the beautiful gardens with fountains and gazebos between the rails, visited several of the shops, and had we not already eaten, would have been tempted to dine there. Would be interested to see inside the train cars people stay in, but if it's anything else like... More

Don't be put off by the shabbiness of the complex if you are interested in history, there is a lot to learn about the train station and how important the railroads were to Chattanooga. We stayed here and would go back again because it is on the trolley line and away from the traffic of downtown Chattanooga.

We had a great time. Staff at check in was great. Loved the gardens and the location of the hotel, we could walk to other attractions.
