The historic site was really interesting. Loved seeing the old trains and the depot. Dinner in the pizza rail car was fun. Very unique setup! Breakfast buffet closed one hour earlier than published on their website. Normal room prices are too high...wouldn't have stayed without the deal through Kayak. They charge an extra $7 per day for parking, which always bugs me at a hotel...they know you have to park so it really shouldn't be an extra charge in my opinion.
Price was decent and the location was good being I was going to be in downtown the entire trip. Staff was nice and helpful. Standard room had a strange smell to it, like mildew or something. Random, cheap pictures of train related images on the walls. I bought a candy bar from the machine and just the heat from the machine itself made the bar melt and not really worth eating.
Nice location. Nice landscaping Rooms are old and dirty. The shower had hair sitting in the bottom of the drain upon our arrival. The bed was very uncomfortable. The room walls must be made of paper because noise carries very well, and the other guests were loud. My wife and I were barely able to get any sleep as people were running through the halls until 2am. The Choo Choo is interesting, and the location is nice, but I would not stay here again if it was the only hotel in town.
Location. Easy to get on the bus and get anywhere It was like staying in a motel. The beds were awful....We woke up early just to get out of there. Pimple juice on the mirror from a previous guest...everything seemed to be falling apart...just needs a face lift...Wish I had spent the extra 30 bucks to stay somewhere else but since the wedding we were attending was in the hotel seemed like the best option.
The staff was wonderfully friendly and our room was quiet. It's been a while since I have bought magic beans but I was certainly sold some when I made my reservations for this dump. Perhaps I'm just picky but when I pay $200+ for a traincar room and $100+ for a "double" room, I have some expectations. For example, I would like for those two rooms to be in the same zip code. As we drove past one distressed building after the next, we joked that the traincars must be first class and we were in steerage. We arrived at building #3 and were unsure if we had even rated steerage as the structure looked eerily similar to a penal farm. Thankfully, it was nicer inside than out. Nicer but not what you would expect for the price. Notes-"double" means full sized bed, NOT queen; black substance in crevices of bathroom is NOT soot from a train. I heard after we checked out that there are plans to completely re-do this hotel. If so, maybe those magic beans will grow into something special. Until then, just stop by to see the train stuff if you're a big fan and do yourself a favor by staying at another hotel.
Great location in fun area. Front desk staff was pleasant when we arrived. Patio outside the room. Very run down facilities. Black mold around the air vent, peeling paint in the room. Seemed dingy overall. They didn't tell us about the $7 parking fee until we checked out. Very overpriced for the condition and quality of the hotel. (We paid $121)
Great location in Chattanooga and beautiful gardens and hotel facilities. The buffet breakfast was very poor. The food was slightly cold and tasted stale with very little variety for a "buffet".
We liked the trains, but thought there would be a model train display or more train themed decorations. The walls were very thin and the staff was not friendly.
The grounds were a sight to see, especially decked out for Christmas -- pretty gardens, ice skating, beautiful main building with its restored foyer -- all near Warehouse Row and right beside the free electric shuttle buses. The non-train-car rooms were outdated, with extremely thin doors and walls, and the hardest beds I've ever slept on - the floor would at least have been supportive while being just as hard. No complementary breakfast; the breakfast buffet, while open, is $10/person plus beverages and tip.
Location and music venue It was really rundown And the Front desk was not very helpful.
The location and concert venues It was very rundown and overpriced for what it was. The front desk was very unhelpful
Staff was friendly and location was nice for access to restaurants and bars Hotel needs updating and maintenance . Single serve shampoo and conditioner were both partially used... glad I paid kayak price, not full price. Comparable to a $60 a night elsewhere.
Location Overpriced. Pictures make it look much nicer than it is. Average at best.
Its a standard mainstream hotel. It was really expensive (150 for one night) and didnt even include parking which was another 8 dollars per day. Didnt realize their was a hostel in town in a better location and much cheaper.
I don't believe after paying over $200 a night, we should have to also pay $8 a day to park our vehicle. The air conditioning in the room wasn't working very well.
Friendly staff, a number of good restaurants nearby, convenient to battlefields
Room was clean and in good shape. Good size tub and shower. Attractive fire pit outside. Door staff was friendly. The garage's lighting was either mostly lacking or not working when we were there. Coffee in the room was poor.
This was a nice hotel, very beautiful on the inside. Great music in the bar room. Valet was super nice. Our shower had very low water pressure and as a female with long hair, this took forever And was very comfortable . also the shower was clogged so we took showers in a filled bath. When they said they would come fix it right away I thought they meant within the hour, but instead it took about 3-4 hours for the person to show up. By this time we had gone out to eat, and have drinks, go back to the room and start getting ready for bed by the time he showed. The hotel said they couldn't do anything for us because we had gone through price line to get our room, which I have never heard that one before. Room rates were overpriced in my opinion, stayed at a cheap motel that has been the same if not better.
Attractive Hotel Good Location Very expensive for the small room we had. Very loud facility - room right by elevators and ice machine and constant foot traffic and loud staff members. The entire hotel was filled with a conference and we were placed in amongst them - many of the facilities were used by the conference. After a late night with lots of loud disturbances we were awoken just after 5 am and forced to evacuate the building. After standing outside for a half hour we were given no explanation on why we had to evacuate other than the 6 fire engines that pulled up - then left shortly after. I'm sure it's a fine hotel - but we just didn't have a good experience.
Very clean. Friendly staff. Being charged for parking.
The room was clean Small rooms for the price...... Paying to park...
Lobby and rooms were well decorated. The hotel is in close proximity to Warehouse Row and about a mile from the Aquarium and arts district. Kids loved the indoor pool even if it was small. The hotel could have been somewhat cheaper. We didn't eat here because the prices were just as high or more than top restaurants in town. The shower pressure was obnoxiously strong. We stood in a pool of water because it couldn't drain fast enough. Rooms are nice but a bit tight for a whole family.
Great facilities and excellent staff. Indoor pool was key for Spring Break. Was not very close to main attractions in the city and not in a very good part of the neighborhood. Not the best place to walk with young children.
The room was very nice and the beds were comfortable. Having the sauna, steam room and pool/hot tub included with the stay made the price of the hotel worth it. Live music and a fireplace in the lobby made the evening relaxing. The cleaning staff was very friendly and helpful. The staff at the spa was not up to par. I have a medical condition and called a week in advance to ask about setting up a spa package that would accommodate my needs. None of my three calls were returned. As for the hotel's restaurant, The Broad Street Grille, was overpriced and the wait staff was terrible. We walked out before ordering because we waiteds so long for service.
The staff was very helpful. Room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was excellent.
Great location if you have a scheduled event at the convention center. Good amenities. Bed was uncomfortable. Man at check in was working on computer and told me to what a minute. After several minutes (5-7), when a supervisor came out of the back and asked if I needed help, he then stopped what he was doing to help me.
The breakfast included, exceeded my expectations. Hotel had lots of character and was comfortable. The hotel reminded me a lot of staying in my grandparents old farm house so it was very homie.The staff was wonderful and friendly. I would definitely go back, but would book a room with a balcony instead. The pictures are a little misleading, since the room we booked was definitely smaller and didn't have the same quality furnishings . We weren't in the room much, so that was okay. Overall it was a nice stay and had very few complaints.
My only regret is that we only stayed one night ! My first overnight stay in Chattanooga & I will never stay anywhere else ! The most beautiful Inn with modern accommodations yet they've kept the original charm of the building ! I read the reviews about the breakfast but they didn't do it justice ! The chef made biscuits that are out of this world ! The room was huge & bed extremely comfortable. Not your typical, sterile, cookie cutter hotel room ! I can't wait to go back again !
