Verified Reviews of Chattanooga Choo Choo

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Many Of My Wedding Guests Complained About Service."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The process of reserving my block of rooms was a fairly smooth process. However, it was not disclosed to me that the hotel would be under renovations during our stay. Many of the selling points the hotel gave me when the block was being reserved were not available during my stay. Only one of the three swimming pools were open and all of the restaurants were closed. Since we were offered such a competitive rate I decided to stick with it. Almost every one of my guests complained that it was not an easy task when it came to reserving their rooms. Most of them were put on long holds and given incorrect information. For example, my Mother in Law was told multiple times that the two rooms she reserved would be connecting. When we checked in that not only were they not connected, they weren't even next door to each other. They did fix this and at least gave them rooms that were next door and didn't charge her for one of them. Overall, it just appeared as though the staff was not properly trained and didn't know how to answer many of the questions. My brother came in to attempt an early check-in. When he asked the front desk staff if an early check-in was possible the front desk clerk asked him to hold on a second, went in the back and never returned. After waiting 15 minutes my brother finally left. Things that I did like about the hotel was its location. It was very convenient and close to downtown and shuttles. It was fun for the kids and my bed was comfortable.
