Looks like a train station with different cars acting as businesses (bar, escape room, etc.). Food on property was very good.

We loved the experience of staying in a train car! It was also wonderful having a great restaurant (Stir) and coffee shop (Frothy Monkey) within easy walking distance. Overall our room seemed clean, but the carpet was gross (my 1 year old’s feet, hands and knees were black after crawling around), the bathroom door didn’t latch shut, and the bed needed to be replaced. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it as a unique and pleasant experience!

Liked the train cars parked in yard. Wish we could have stayed in one of them. Very nice with nice indoor pool, which we did not use as we were in the area for sightseeing.

We had a great stay with this hotel. We feel it’s a very nice place to stay with kids. We have four children. They had a blast in the pool, as well as we did also. It was warm and the depth was just perfect for us all. Our room was very clean and we had plenty of room, even for our pack and play. Also, the breakfast was really nice. We had a variety to pick from; with four kids we have to have our options. So, we would say the overall experience was phenomenal. We will most definitely be staying here every time we visit Chattanooga.

Pros: The location
Cons: Bring back the breakfast buffet.
Location: loved the Hot Chocolatier and the Wildflower tea
The pool area is beautiful, although we didn't pack suits and were not there long enough to use it. The room was efficient and clean, Unfortunately we were unable to acquire on of the cars. I liked the overall atmosphere of the hotel. The Frothy Monkey was a little expensive for breakfast and I really missed the breakfast buffet we had the last time I stayed.
