On-Site Amenities and Dining

While staying true to its historical roots, the Hotel Chalet at the Choo Choo does not shy away from providing top-notch facilities. The property boasts a glittering pool and lush courtyard where guests can unwind. The caboose car bar, situated in the courtyard, offers an array of refreshing beverages to enhance the relaxation experience.

Housing its own chic on-site restaurant, Elsie’s Daughter, named after the original train station architect’s wife, the hotel aims to satiate guests’ gastronomic needs as well. Specializing in French-Belgian cuisine, the restaurant’s menu includes delicacies like bone marrow tartine and mussels. The cocktail menu, with offerings named after iconic artists, adds a fun and creative touch to the dining experience.

Local Recommendations from Jessica LaRosa

Jessica LaRosa, the Hotel Chalet’s managing director, shares her own Chattanooga favorites for the benefit of guests. For a pleasant brunch, she recommends the Rosecomb, where the vibe, service, food and drinks, all come together perfectly to ensure an unforgettable dining experience.

The Local Dive Retail, a treasure trove of vintage items, is Jessica’s go-to place for a little retail therapy. For a unique drinking experience, she suggests visiting Attack of the Tatsu, a Japanese speakeasy ramen bar that serves sake in traditional masu boxes, delivering a slice of Japanese culture right in Chattanooga.
