We arrived and were really impressed with the train station main lobby and restaurant. You could tell what it used to be and it fits nicely with what it is now. Outside the back was where the train cars were. They are converted into hotel rooms. There are some really nice gardens with fountains and fire poles that are really... More

My family and I stayed at the Chattanooga Choo Choo this weekend for a Family Reunion. Just wanted to drop a line to express our thought about out stay: it was perfect. The location is amazing, we walked down town and caught the free shuttle bus back to the hotel. The rooms are clean, the food exceeded out expectations and... More

The rail car rooms should be condemned. The bathroom was disgusting. Great "concept" in dire need of a COMPLETE Reno and a deep deep cleaning. I'd say no-no. Stay somewhere nicer and get a better impression. On 13 of an 18 day trip around GA and TN and even the $70 motel was better by a long shot

We stayed at the Chattanooga Choo Choo in June during our visit to Chattanooga. While the Depot (registration & Restaurant area) are nice and really cool, as are the grounds near them, our room was not. We stayed on one of the back buildings. The room was not thoroughly cleaned with hair in the tub and on the bathroom floor,... More

Not a lot to do here...hotel was pretty, caught bus here and rode around town...there are some shops close by that you can walk to. There used to be all kinds of shops in the area of the choo choo, but they aren't there anymore. Probably won't go back

I like what they've done to this place. The history and ambiance will be what keeps this place chugging along. I noticed some new improvements happening and it will be interesting to visit again in a few years. Room: the cool part but don't expect luxury, 3 stars, inside a rail car was fun for the kids for a night.... More

My wife and I spend our first step of our honeymoon their. It was great that we could go back 20 years later and sleep in a train car again. The staff was always friendly. The food in the restaurant was only for breakfast. It was always wonderful and a wonderful staff.

This is a very nice hotel. We stayed in the main building. (The rail cars look nice and we would try them the next time. ) The station itself has been nicely refurbished as well as the rooms. My only quibble is with the front desk staff. The service was slow, one member wasn't knowledgeable about the facility and the... More
