We recently blind booked this on priceline. The beds are comfy and the location was great for walking to explore the area. If you stay on a Sunday the Chattanooga Market was awesome with tons of local flare.

Have stayed here twice and both times were pleasant. Great location with lots of restaurants and the things to do within walking distance. Only downside because it is a downtown hotel is you have to park your car valet, which is like an additional$15.

This was my second stay at the Read House and was let down by my room quality and condition. The valet service is great, very efficient and easy. The lobby is beautiful and well maintained. Service at the desk was excellent. I am Starwood Gold and I was surprised that the hotel was no longer in the Starwood family and... More

The The Read House Historic Inn & Suites (formerly the Sheraton Read House) is a lovely hotel in downtown Chattanooga. We've stayed here many times over the years and we've always enjoyed our stays. While it is not the closest hotel to the River Front area with the Aquarium, the Ball Park, the Imax Theater, etc it is still within... More

Stayed here for one night as a very spontaneous and last minute trip to Chattanooga over Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is a beautiful old building that is well kept and still has alot of its historical significance on display. Elevators are small as would be expected in a hotel this old. The room was also small but the bed... More

Our family of four stayed at the Read House for spring break in April. I was so displeased with certain aspects of our stay that I knew I could not write a reasonable review. Good: I love old, historic buildings and this certainly fit the bill. It is a beautiful building, rich in history. The indoor pool was a very... More

Secured this hotel thru Hotwire, and could not have been happier. The hotel was clean, the room was more than adequate, and the location in downtown Chattanooga was over the top. The personnel at the hotel were more than helpful, and the amenities were more than acceptable. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Probably one of the nicest places to stay close to downtown. The lobby is awesome, the rooms are nice. There is an on property steak house and Starbucks. Within walking distance to many attractions or the bus stop or bicycle rental. Great spot for couples business travelers or families. Nice property with a historic feel.
