“Best for vacation in Chatt!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

We shopped around a lot before booking the ChooChoo! But we wanted the full experience of being tourist in Chattanooga and finally just did it. and we are very happy we did! The CARTA pics up literally in the front right parking lot - as does a city carriage ride!! Restraunts on site as is the Terminal restraunt next door (fabulous). You never have to move you vehicle if you dont want to - and dont worry about paying to park downtown!! The room was avarage in Building 3 - We reserved a king but were given two queens, bot a huge deal but it was ok. The pool and hot tubs were very nice in this building. tho it was too cold for the pool we did use the hot tub.
Really wish they still had the water slides they had when i was a kid at the other two pools.
Take the trolley tour around the property. Its very interesting and puts it into propesctive!
Watch for concerts i on the weekends if you stay in building 3.. you may not get a parking place near your building if they have one at The Hangar next door. The people from the concerts never botheres us tho and you couldnt hear it.
The inside of the lobby is absolutely beautiful as are the grounds. Would definitly stay here again!

“Dated, but worth a stroll”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

This is a staple of Chattanooga. The old train station is charming, as are the cars. The concept was quite avant-garde, but is now dated. Dated, but worth a stroll.

“One of my favorite stops in Chattanooga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

I liked this place so much I'm reviewing it twice (first time didn't save) and recommending it to all visitors to Chattanooga. Buy a ticket and ride the trolley, a very quick trip after walking the station will do you well. I don't have the money for it but if I did, I'd certainly stay the night in one of the hotel train cars. There are of course places to eat and things to see. If I return to Chattanooga, I'll certainly return to this place again.
