Imagine being transported back in time to the 1920s or 1960s for a night’s stay. Well, this is now possible at The Hotel Chalet at The Choo Choo in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After a $19 million renovation, this hotel now offers guests the opportunity to stay in lovingly restored train carriages from the bygone eras, redesigned as luxurious guest rooms.
The Hotel Chalet at The Choo Choo has created a unique experience for fans of history and rail travel.
Designer Jenny Bukovec was responsible for the train carriages’ interiors and has done an excellent job. The 1920s carriages feature Tiffany glass pendants, while the 1960s rooms have a midcentury modern theme. The hotel’s unique accommodations are an immersive experience that allows guests to feel like they have traveled back in time.
