Nice decor throughout the hotel, however my room the first night didn't have any hot water. Called the front desk to complain and they said engineer said trick was to turn on sink and tub at same time. Really? In a 3 star hotel? Trick didn't work to say the least. Offered to give me another room but this was... More

My husband and I wanted a nice hotel experience in the heart of Chattanooga for our short anniversary getaway. The Read House was a slightly expensive hotel, but was worth it for the beautiful architecture and decor of the facilities, the close proximity to most restaurants and sites in downtown Chattanooga, and the friendly staff. The entire building, especially the... More

Second time staying at the Read House. Great location for downtown Chattanooga and all it has to offer. Close to free trolley pickup. Indoor pool. Nice workout room. Very impressed on our first stay. The second time our room was a little more "worn". Fee for valet parking but suppose one could do the public lots for less. my only... More

I stayed at this hotel while on a short business trip to the area. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. The room was a nice size, however it was definitely dated and needs some updating. The lobby was large and had a full size Starbucks which was a bonus. I tried to take a warm shower in the morning... More

I stayed here on business and we had a great negotiated rate but I would not stay here again. I had some sort of suite in the new section. My room was HUGE but it was super out dated and gawdy. It also smelled like it could use a good deep cleaning. The bathroom is also outdated and was small... More

I always enjoy staying here- so convenient and everyone from valets to front desk are super nice. Old school classy feel- sure rooms a bit worn in places, but love the uniqueness of this hotel. Catch free shuttle right outside to get down Broad St.

Walking into the lobby of the Historic Read House, I was expecting my room to be over-the-top cool - it was not. If you enter the hotel from the Broad Street side, a corridor leads you past Starbucks on your right and Porter's Steak House on your left. The lobby is beautiful with solid wood panels and is so throwback... More

All of the staff we met went above and beyond to make our anniversary trip one that we will not forget. They were friendly and very helpful. IF you do not enjoy the charm and warmth of a historic hotel that has been beautifully maintained, don't book. The hotel has kept the old ambiance mixed with modern convenience. Most of... More

One night here on our way to Savannah because it was the half way point. Great historic inn, just needs some freshening up / deep cleaning. The lobby itself is beautiful. Lots of hardwood trim and details. Throughout the hotel, some of the wallpaper is ripped in places, and the place needs some new paint. Also, the paint in the... More
