My husband and I ended up in Chattanooga on a spur of the moment long weekend and were ecstatic to stay in Read House! The on site restaurant was very good and I, in particular, loved having a Starbucks downstairs. Every member of the staff that we had the pleasure of meeting showed us exemplary service and attention to detail.... More

Now let me start by saying I'm a middle class guy who rarely stays in such a nice hotel. I can say though that my experience both times was incredible. The Staff, room and ambiance were spot on. I apparently don't live the life of some of these pampered raters, but I can tell you that this place is top... More

Nothing to get excited about. Nice older architecture and rooms are spacious. The pool was decent and the workout room looked nice. No acknowledgment of spg, no breakfast, no coffee, no upgrades offered. Pay to park. I would go back in a crunch.

It was a great deal for a historic hotel with much old school charm. Yes, the carpet in the hall needs to be replaced and it is hard to keep a historic property looking brand new, but my room was great, as was the workout and pool area and the location was prime. The view out of my window was... More

My family and I stayed just one night in Chattanooga after an exhausting day of dance competition. My husband was able to walk to the hotel to check in during a break in competition. Beautiful foyer and loved the spacious room. We were a little disappointed that the only parking options were valet and street meters. It was nice to... More

The Read House provided a nice, central location within walking distance for many of the restaurants and attractions we were interested in, although it was cold. We would have liked more information about the local shuttle system so that we could have utilized it as it seemed to stop right outside. The room was a nice size (Jr. King Suite);... More

This hotel is just like the scary hotel set out of "12 Monkeys"... I just wish we had followed our GPS which continually tried to keep us away from it. Reception and check-in was a joke, valet parking a rip-off and it took us a good 10 minutes to locate our room along some truly scary, old, dark corridors. The... More

I recently booked the Presidential Suit for a night away with my wife. I had good expectations based on a visit 20 years prior, but sadly this one fell far short. The Presidential Suit didn't have a wet bar, glasses or even tongs for the ice bucket. It was dirty, burnt out lights in the bath and paint all over... More

This is a great place to stay if you are in town or just an overnight getaway. It is a very old landmark hotel and everything is beautiful and very upscale. There are a ton of restaurants and things to do within walking distance!
