Perfect place to stay. I think I've stayed at this hotel at least 50 different times and over 150 nights over the course of my life and I never get tired of it. They have a dog park area-very pet friendly. Good restaurants and a romantic atmosphere. When ever we go there for quick weekend get a way it feels... More

This hotel is an old train station so the main loby is beautiful! There are three hotel buildings which I did not experience since we stayed in one of the train car rooms. There are a few rows of train cars that have been turned into rooms. Definatly the coolest hotel I've experienced. It is an old hotel, and some... More

A very comfortable weekend spent at the Chattanooga Choo Choo. Looking forward to staying in one of the train cars on the next trip. The rooms were large and comfortable. We stayed in building 3 with a little balcony of the room. If only it wasn't to cold to enjoy it. The pool area as well looked very inviting even... More

We decided to make a stop on the way home from Gatlinburg yesterday. So we chose the Chattanooga Choo Choo as our stopping point. We had read all the attractions the old train station, now turned hotel had and thought that it would be a great overnight resting spot. With everything right there, such as several fine restaurants and even... More

Stayed here on my road trip to Nashville, quirky but definitely worth a look. Rail cars are different, looks relatively recently updated! Would stay again if just for the novelty factor!! Mind the bathrooms though, they get a tad cold!!!!

My family and I stayed at the Choo-Choo over this past Easter. The staff went out of their way to make sure that I had adjoining rooms even though I hadn't reserved them that way. In fact, whenever I needed anything from towels to coffee they were right there. I can't say enough about them. I love the hotel and... More

We live about 2 hours from Chattanooga and visit at least 3 times a year overnight. We stayed at the choo-choo and we were pretty disappointed. Below is an email I sent to the manager on Sunday December 14th and as of today Wednesday December 17th, I've not received any reply. I will upload the pictures I am referring to... More

Maybe back in the day. It's listed as a 3 star. The mattress is so worn-out that it has body imprint. The hotel is in desperate need of updating. The staff is friendly. The location is good. There is a free shuttle service to the downtown area right next door. They are currently renovating the restaurants, hopefully the rooms will... More

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary by reserving a train car room. The experience of sleeping in an actual passenger car was very nice. However, the facilities need updating in a bad way. Pros: Room was well furnished and very clean. Hotel staff were extremely friendly. Check in was smooth with no surprises. Hotel lobby was very impressive.... More

We stayed in the Victorian train car, so I can't compare that to the other hotel rooms. It was such a unique experience for my family. The train cars are cozy. They could use a little upgrading but it's what I would expect and old train car to look like. The gardens are amazing. Unfortunately, the indoor pool was a... More
