Our accommodation was in one of the new building of this amazing hotel. Check in staff was kind & helpful. Room was clean, spacious and everything was working properly. General atmosphere was amazing: the big Xmas tree, all the decorations, the trains a real dream.

It is not bad enough of that the hotel rents subpar rooms for this property. If you have any problems they charge your credit card for there problems then proceed to get rude and hateful with you if you complain about your problems you have. We were there for a convention and one of our beds was broken. My friend... More

What a beautiful and elegant hotel with regular rooms, Train Cars, Restaurants and shopping on the property. We spent a night in a Pullman Train Car Room. It was magical. It was really neat how you boarded the train and opened your private door to your room. The bathrooms are old looking. I think to give you a nostalgic feel.... More

Hotel a little tired but it is being renovated so will be good in future. Breakfast was poor as no juice and had to pay extra for coffee. Breakfast $9.95 and coffee about $2.95. Didn't like suggested tip values both % and $ value being on the invoice - I can make up my own mind on tips.

Thanks for recognizing our renovation and your 4 star review. We are very competitive with other full service hotels regarding breakfast. It's very common these days in most of restaurants to have a courtesy suggested gratuity. I will mail you via TripAdvisor. All the Best, Jim Bambrey GM More

I've been to the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel many times for science fiction conventions and enjoy the old time elegance of the spacious lobby and the novelty of the train cars that serve as additional hotel rooms. The hotel is making a major investment in upgrading its facilities and it shows. Half the fun of staying there is checking out... More

We visited Chattanooga over Thanksgiving. Our room was very clean and the property is nice. Love the gas lamps! The ChooChoo is located right next to trolley line that runs to the downtown attractions; very convenient! Many amenities on the property to choose from. The only distracting feature of the hotel is the very strong odor in hallways and common... More

The front area of the hotel is historic, and although a little run down, has a nice feel to it. We were put in the very, very far back of the property. We had to call for a golf cart to get us to the main hotel area when we wanted to go anywhere. The section of the hotel we... More

Husband and I stayed in a renovated room in Building One. It had 2 full beds, a siting chair in the corner, large cushy ottoman used as a desk chair that could double as a foot stool or second seat. It was comfortable enough overall, decent bedding and plenty of room to move around. The mattresses were unfortunately not comfortable,... More

Thanks for taking my call today. Your repeat business visiting the Chattcon Convention is greatly appreciated. Also, thanks your comments about your room. We obviously missed an opportunity with you regarding our housekeeping staff. We normally get great reviews about that staff. See you next year. All the Best, Jim Bambrey GM More

Train Car was very clean, enjoyed the experience. Great place to stay if attending a concert at Track 29 or just visiting Chattanooga. Would definitely go back and stay in again. The Hotel Staff was very helpful and the Door Man greeting you at the Main Entrance when checking in added that old school touch.

All the staff were so helpful and friendly. Our room was very nice. We used the indoor pool which was great . The restaurant was excellent. The ChooChoo is close to everything and with the tram running right next door, it makes is easy to go downtown and enjoy everything Chattanooga has to offer. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Chattanooga.
