Stayed here on a weekend and had a great time. It's within walking distance of some great restaurants and shops and there are some great shops on property. We stayed in a train car room and loved it! It could use a little polishing up (peeling wallpaper) but it was such a unique and cool room.

50+ members of the 13th Engineer (C) Bn. Association held our Reunion in October 11 to 13
2012.
The entire time of the Reunion the Hotel provided excellent service in ALL areas.
The service and food for the Thursday welcome Buffet , and Saturday night Banquet was outstanding.
It was one of the most successful Reunions we have had in part due to the Hotel Staff.

This was the first time I've ever stayed in a train car. Even though it wasn't traveling down the rails and just sitting still it will still be a great story to tell! I recommend everyone stay in a train car at least once. The bathroom was just as good if not just a bit small but still had everything you normally get in any hotel room.

Room Tip: Any of the train cars should be the same but I can tell you that 773 was a great one!

Kinda like gatlinburg tn but no snow and there are better eateries. There are old timey photo stores, icecream parlor, cool train cars everywhere. There is a track 29 music venue that has pretty big bands every weekend behind the choochoo hotels. The terminal brew house is a very good place to eat and they have great beer right next to the hotel literally

My husband and I stayed at the Choo Choo for a week. We were there for the AMCA Nationals. I have to say that we really enjoyed our stay, had lots of activities all around the facility. We were in the Hotel 3. Our room was very clean, we had a balcony too which was a pleasant surprise! We never heard anyone in the other rooms, and I know we had neighbors... When our Club had a meeting in the Ballroom, there were the security there who would give you a ride to the ballroom, there was always someone around to help with just about anything. We had two dinners in the Ballroom building and I have to say the Servers were really making sure everyone had food and whatever they wanted to drink. What a GREAT group of people!
There are places to go see for everyone....ALL ages! We went to one restaurant that the servers would sing...and they sounded Great! I would highly recommend the Choo Choo to anyone! Everyone who we came in contact was very kind, and so helpful! Thank you for such a great stay! Next time we are in Chattanooga, we will return!!

Room Tip: We loved our 3rd floor room!

We (my husband and I) came to the Choo because our Alaskan Malamute Club of America National Speciaty was held there. We drove in from Houston, so it was a long trip, especially with two dogs, and we were tired when we arrived late 10/23/12. The receptionist was so warm and welcoming and very helpful. Everyone we encountered was the same way, even making over our dogs. Our anniversary was 10/24/12, and we had dinner in the Station House restaurant to celebrate. The food was very good, as was the service, and we totally enjoyed the singing waiters/waitresses. When they found out it was our anniversary, they each sang a song for us. It was a wonderful and unforgettable evening!

Please refer to my photo taken in astandard room. It will make it clear why to avoid this property in need of a serious renovation. Greatpub across the street if you must stay here it has delicious food and bike rental station is right out front alon with a trolley stop at hotel.

I’m sorry that we did not meet his expectations in other areas. .. I have reviewed your comments with the respective Department Heads, so that they can take corrective action. We take your comments very seriously and it is our opportunity to improve our product and service. If this bug was on our property, according our pest control company, it’s a water bug and would have to enter through the sliding glass door. It’s got nothing to do with cleanliness.

All the Best,
