I thought this was a beautiful historic hotel with character. The lobby was beautiful and nicely decorated for the holidays. The bed was SUPER comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. I loved seeing the historic pictures of the hotel and reading about the previous owners and the world the hotel used to reside in. Valet and check-in was... More

We enjoyed celebrating our daughter's wedding reception in the stunning beauty of the Silver Ballroom. It was a fabulous night and we are grateful for how well the staff prepared the room and food just as expected. As the ceremony was in another location, we had to leave the final preparations up to the Read House. The room is beautiful... More

We hosted an event in one of their halls. Overall it was good. However, the communication leading up to the event was lacking and details were missed during the event. We've hosted events there on other occasions but this event was lacking the personal care and attention to detail that we had received in previous years. Valet employee, Carson, did... More

Perfect, no. Delightful, gracious, hospitable, comfortable, clean, fascinating, friendly, convenient, absolutely! Upon check-in, when the vintage brass elevator doors opened on the 7th floor and I saw the sagging wallpaper spot at the landing, I feared the truth of the complaints I'd read about the condition of this beautiful, historic property located in the heart of Chattanooga's downtown. Bracing myself... More

My wife and I stayed the night for a work event and were very impressed with the hotel and staff. The hotel and room were clean and quite interesting with all the architecture. The staff greatly enhanced our visit by telling us a good bit of history associated with the Read House. Not everything is about Ghosts. We met a... More

We've been using Chattanooga as a long weekend getaway (sans kids) from Atlanta for well over 10 years, and thus have first hand experience with many of the hotels. The Read House has become our preferred choice. It simply fits our style and needs: a charming old place with lots of history, extremely well run, the most comfortable beds anywhere,... More

I travel alone for business fairly regularly and was delighted to land at the Read House on my way through Chattanooga. As a single older woman, I was delighted with the entire experience.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the Read House. The service was excellent and the Starbucks down stairs adds a lot to the experience. Good food and a great place for a business meeting with the great downtown location. Good service.

I like places that are not cookie-cutter, but have some unique character. This hotel does, while also offering all the amenities (good fitness room, good in room coffee, very comfortable). Downside-tyne only restaurant (besides Starbucks in lobby)is really expensive. It's good but not for daily meals.
