This is my first time being back here since I think 1989. The train was fun to see again although it looks like it could use a paint job. I was sad to find out the model railroad... read more

Took a group of 12 to visit the Choo Choo loved seeing the old train station I remember leaving Chattanooga years ago on a train ride to Michigan. The Station is very pretty and hope it never changes.

Hotel was beautiful. We actually came for the model railroad museum and it was completely gone. Would be nice if they put that in their advertising!

This is my first time being back here since I think 1989. The train was fun to see again although it looks like it could use a paint job. I was sad to find out the model railroad was not on display and the gift store really lacked gifts that had the Choo Choo on it. I think I have... More

It looks like there is some renovations going on in the side of the building. The inside is gorgeous and wish i would have been able to see it in it's hay day. Worth a visit, but only ended up staying @ 20 minutes to look around

I marveled at the restored architectural beauty of this once wonderful structure. I applaud the attempts at reviving this gem. Outside, you can see many old train cars, used as hotel rooms, along with the famous Choo Choo, of course. There seemed to be a lot of construction going on and the model train exhibit was not there nor was... More

You can still see some gorgeous architecture with the original crown molding, but it has seen better days. Wish it could be restored to its glory days.

We wondered around this property looking at the trains. You could climb up onto the engine and take some pictures. There are other things to do on this property like eat, sleep and go to the museum.

We had a brief stop here on our tour. It was amazing to see the renovated station - now a hotel. There are chandeliers in the restrooms. A highlight for us was Marlin - the railway guard. We enjoyed our stop here and would recommend it.
