We stayed here for 2 nights and were very impressed. We were not sure what to expect staying in a train carriage but it was great and very spacious. The venue is really good, it was quiet but the Glenn Miller gardens are lovely as is the breakfast room. Breakfast is $9.95 ex drinks and there is a very good... More

The hotel is really nice and historic in the old Chattanooga trainstation. A lot of train wagons and a steam train are on the lot. The staff is really friendly and the hotel rooms were cleand an nice. They are a bit older but that also gives a nice art-deco atmosphere. I would deffinetly recommend this hotel.

The old station is now a hotel.The back of the hotel houses the famous train(s) along with nice gardens and shrubs. Nice place to visit. There is a nice gift shop, bar and restaurant and everything is downtown. Lots of parking in the area. No charge to visit the grounds where the trains are.

Not sure how to rate this hotel, certainly not 5 stars for the hotel, but definitely 5 stars for atmosphere and ambience. So it has a 3 from me, but don't let that put you off. Lovely reception area inside the old Terminal building with friendly staff, plenty of parking (paid) and nicely kept grounds and gardens. We had booked... More

Stayed at the Chattanooga Choo Choo for unfortunately only the one night but what a great experience to stay in one of the train carriages. This is possibly not for everyone but you would miss out if you didn't try. Don't expect the orient express as some things do need updated but this does not detract from the enjoyment of... More

This was a trip planned for my better half. She is a train enthusiast and planning a trip to Chattanooga wouldn't be complete without staying in a real Pullman car. It might be a little pricey but it was worth it. If you are looking for a new 5 star hotel room then the train car rooms are not for... More

We found this hotel to be a very unique hotel to stay at. You can even chooser to stay in a train car! It was enjoyable to wander around the hotel and walk around the engine and the many train cars. It is in a great location to utilize the electric trolleys to get to many of the city's attractions.... More

The hotel itself (we stayed in the Empress Building) was a bit dated. Cleanliness and service were fine, nothing over the top. It would have been nice to have an in room mini fridge and microwave. We were also surprised that there was no clock in the room. The pool was very nice and the other facilities looked very neat,... More

We recently visited Chattanooga and stayed at choo choo with family. At first we were sent to building no 3 which was a nightmare. When you visit, make sure you don't get into building 3. We had to make multiple calls to make sure we move to building no 1 which was decent. The hotel is big and kids friendly,... More

Had an average room on the second floor, first building after check in, King size bed. There was a good amount of literature about the history of the town and hotel. Two sliding glass doors to nowhere, but great views of the train, courtyard and station. Outdoor water fall pool was excellent! We had the pool to ourselves both times... More
