We stayed in one of the Pullman carriages. It did not disappoint. The bed was huge and comfy, the furniture is in the style of the time. Very clean and lovely. Would stay in one again. The experience was wonderful

The Choo Choo is great for a fun place to take out of town guests for a good meal. They also have beautiful spaces to rent for dinners and activities, such as rehearsal dinners.

My family has been visiting the Chattanooga Choo Choo for 17 years to get Christmas family photos. They always have a great setup and Santa is the best there is! We visit the day after Thanksgiving and mill around the hotel for a bit. This year, we saw many new additions such as the games set up outside and the... More

We didn't stay here, but went to look around. Neat place, especially for little boys, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see this site when Chattanooga has so much more to offer! We did enjoy the free shuttle back to the Aquarium district!

The first room we had was really awful, a broken desk chair, a really small chair with a TV like table next to it, holes in the carpets, outdated furniture, but, worst of all, the door key didn't work but it didn't need to work because all anyone had to do was press on the door handle from outside the...

This place is cool and we look forward to another visit when we can actually stay in the train car hotel. We did get to go ice skating which was very cool. Cool place.

Christmas decorations were up, and ice skating was set up outside. Large (life size?) games of chess, checkers, and Jenga are outside, also. We walked around to visit shops and take pictures. We asked to see a train car room and decided against it since it just felt outdated as far as accommodations. This place has SO much untapped potential!... More

My wife and I stayed here only for one night whilst enroute to Atlanta. We needed a place to stop and I picked this hotel in advance as a quirky idea to round off a great tour. Now I know that there are many and varied opinions in respect of this hotel but I call it as I see it.... More

We were not expecting the hotel to have been based in the refurbished and transformed old railway station. It was a real surprise to see the HUGE old station concourse to be the hotel lobby. The platforms were now pathways to the new modern block. There were train carriages which also were hotel rooms and some were used for a... More
