The location is on market street, right off the highway. It is easy to get to and you do not have to drive around in a city setting. The hotel itself is from the 70s, but is well maintained and very clean. There are multiple places to eat and drink on the property, and even more within walking distance. It is a short walk to the electric shuttle, so it is a great location and you can get to all of downtown easily.

The property was as it should be with the age of building. We enjoyed our stay.

Great property in a revitalized community. Great on site distillery, games, workout, escape room, etc...

Trains. If you are a lover of all things to do with trains this is the place for you. The restaurant had a wonderful breakfast. There are many other restaurants in the area. Loved it all...

The only issue I had was the guy that checked me in did not activate our keys properly so they would not work. They fixed the issue and gave me a phone number to call in case they did not work again.

Hotel is a great idea. Grounds and historic element are fantastic. Big downer is condition of train car rooms. Very dirty and in need of care. We ended up moving from one of the train cars to a regular hotel room at the hotel. Understand there are renovations in the works. Once that is done it will probably be an excellent place all around

There’s a lot of charm in these old buildings. Love the fact you can stay in an old train car.

The Choo Choo has been steadily getting out of the hotel business to become strictly an event venue. The staff was wonderful.

The rooms are not connected to the main building. Long cold walk to the restaurant, lobby, etc. The separate building with hotel rooms is VERY dated. Could have stayed at much nicer hotel for less:(

Old facility in need of upgrading. Way past due. Pleasant staff, impressive architecture.

I love the convenience of location. My husband enjoyed the train room. It could definitely use some updates but the experience overall was great and what I expected. Not sure if there is a way to make it more soundproof from outside noise but that would be my only big negative.

Awesome experience for anyone who loves trains, historical buildings, or something a little different than typical hotels. Staying in a train car is a must, and they were bigger, more comfortable, and more adorable than we had hoped! These are very cozy accommodations that you'll never forget---plus free wifi (with a strong signal, even in the Pullman cars); perfect central downtown location; amazing architecture and history; great assortment of free games for the whole family set up outdoors; attached coffee shop, restaurant, bar, and souvenir store; heated indoor pool on the premise; and lots of parking. The rooms were well-furnished with a comfy queen bed plus a daybed (with a trundle underneath), desk, chair, lamps, tv, mini-fridge & coffee-maker, and a shockingly big bathroom (with a built-in heater)! 100% recommend staying at this historic location when in Chattanooga, we loved every minute of it from playing bocce in the evening among the lighted gas lamps to enjoying the beautiful gardens/fountains to snuggling down in a real train car.

You are paying for nostalgia. That being said, it was pretty cool staying on the train car. Front desk was like pulling teeth. Understand that upkeep on old train cars is not easy, but management really needs to look at the damage.
