Located in downtown Chattanooga in the old train station. Very historical and you can get into the Choo choo engine. Free!! Nice spot to stop and look around.

My mother and I took my 3 year old son to stay here because he loves trains. When we arrived, the hotel had booked our room for the wrong day! After waiting for 45 minutes at the front desk, we finally were given a (not so clean) room. Later, we discovered we had our debit card charged twice for the... More

Stopped at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo Museum on my way to Florida. We had a nice relaxing time seeing the old time trains and memorabilia . Nice place to relax a while.

This is now a hotel. The grounds were very pretty and the christmas decorations were being put up. Beautiful old train station is now a grand lobby. In its time I can only imagine all the activity and buzz that would have been in this place.

This seems to be the place that everyone has heard of, I wanted to stay in one of the trains but it seemed very expensive, so I stayed elsewhere and walked down to have a look. Seeing the trains I am glad that I stayed elsewhere, they looked very basic and the reviews seem to back that up. I had... More

The grounds are beautiful and you can climb up on the trains for a peek in. I have been there in all seasons and it is most pretty when the gardens are in bloom during the Spring.

My train-obsessed two year old loved it. I really don't see what the hype is all about, except that it is a Chattanooga landmark. If it was not surrounded by good restaurants, I'm not sure I would visit again.

The hotel is nice, and we did select a railcar to stay in. I would only recommend the railcar during the Spring and/or Fall seasons as there is no insulation. You either burn up or freeze, not much middle ground. The unit 776 we stayed in had broken window treatments, and the bathroon floor around the toilet was sagging, so... More
