Lookout Mountain or Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel

Hello,

I have booked 1 night at the CCC hotel but hotels are much cheaper and i was wondering if we might be better staying at Lookout Mountain.

Any thoughts? Is it a nice place to stay?

Are you staying in a regular room or one of the train cars?

The train cars are nostalgic, but they are the only reason I would stay at the Choo Choo. There are much better hotels if all you are getting is a regular room.

If you want in the Lookout Mtn. area (exit 174 of I-24), check out the Fairfield Inn and Suites in that area.

Lookout Mtn. is not convenient unless you only want to visit that area. To get to town and to visit most major tourist areas, you will have to drive up and down the mountain. CCC is OK, but not great. You will get what you pay for! Do not suggest you stay there. Try looking at one of the travel booking sights, Expedia, Travelocity or etc. and see if the Sheraton Read House is offering a discount. You would be much better paying more and staying at one of the better hotels for your short visit. Hilton Garden, Marriott's, Hampton Inn and Suites, Doubletree. Check the Bluff View Arts District and see about one of their accommodations.

The Lookout Mtn. accomodations I was referring to are not on top of the mountain, but rather at the foot near I-24 in Lookout Valley/Tiftonia on Cummins Hwy.

There are very few accomodations "on top" of the mountain anyway, if you don't want a B&B.

We are currently staying at the Fairfield Inn and Suites at Lookout Mountain and love it! Very nice, very clean and very friendly hotel and parking and breakfast are included at a very reasonable price. We would have had to pay double to stay downtown. We were close to both downtown and the attractions at lookout mountain. It took only 10 minutes to get into downtown.
