  • Historic Chattanooga Landmark

    We've stayed at the Choo Choo in the past, but this was our first time since they have under gone some major renovations. The room was great and clean! We do miss some of the nostalgic shops (ice cream, old time photos, train car pizza and gift shop), but the new additions are great (especially loved American Draft, a pour your own tap room on a train car!). A few places listed on the map though were not complete or even started, so it was a little disappointing.

  • Nice for Atmos but Dated

    We stayed at the Choo Choo (in a train car) for one night in Jul 18. Although the staff were great and everything was clean and worked, the carriages are dated and a little shabby. I would say stay in a newer downtown hotel and just visit the Choo Choo site for the platforms and site locations as it is worth visiting.

  • Filthy

    Looking forward to a night in a train car. It might as well been a cattle car rather than the luxurious car pictured. It was a 45 minute delay for house cleaning before we were allowed in. The ceiling vents had dirt balls hanging from them. Maintenance was called to clean them and bring another fan. There was black fungus everywhere and the carpet was so filthy that our feet blacked the shower floor.
    If you want to rough it, this the place or maybe a campsite.

  • A unique experience but donât expect luxury

    The Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel is a great idea - turn a disused, famous railroad station into a hotel featuring old passenger cars converted into hotel rooms.
    This is exactly what you get and it's such a great idea! The actual reality however needs a little more investment, as the hotel is becoming a bit tired. It's great to see construction work on the old station hall, so someone is definitely onto it, but really the passenger cars need a good upgrade as a priority. They are comfortable, no doubt, but definitely showing the age of what must be quite an old restoration. There are other signs of disrepair to the property ( eg leaking station canopies when it rains) but these are all comparatively minor and do not detract from the unique experience of this fascinating grand old hotel.
    It is good to see that the hotel is part of an area which is undergoing gentrification and becoming quite trendy. The nearby restaurants and the excellent songbirds guitar museum, give hope that the station will undergo a renaissance as being the key " anchor" for this vibrant area.
    If your expectations aren't too high, you will enjoy this hotel and appreciate what a great idea it is as well as experiencing a comfortable night. No doubt you too will see the potential of the Chattanooga Choo Choo as becoming a truly great hotel and attraction with just a bit more care and attention.
    However when all is said and done, where else would you stay in Chattanooga!

  • Decline and decay.

    First off... There is no breakfast buffet. Which is probably a good thing. The concept here is great, but the execution is poor. The property is old, the staff surely and the standards are off the charts low.

    I would suggest not even using the pool since they don't even clean your room daily or check it it for supplies, I'm sure the pool person is too busy riding around in golf cart to check the chorline levels in the pool.

    You can tell when the corners are full of dirt and cobwebs, the windows dirty and the paint peeling that no is supervising anyone and they don't care.

    And let's not forget the trucks unloading next door with a loud vacuum blower.
