I truly enjoyed my stay at the Read House. The hotel is beautiful, the room was spacious, the view of downtown was spectacular, and the bed was so comfortable! Joseph, my valet driver, was very courteous, helpful, and fast. When I visit Chattanooga again I will definitely be staying here!

We planned a wedding on New Year's Eve and booked 15 rooms at The Read House. I could never get anyone to return my calls to book a block of rooms so I booked with booking.com. The Read House ended up matching their price after months of leaving messages. On 12/31 guests were still not allowed to check in at...

They historic part of the hotel is interesting. But it does need a remodel. The paint and carpet in the hallways were pretty bad. The rooms were clean, just dated. I want to come stay again when they finish the remodel. The people there were exceptionally nice. But we were given a room someone else was in, so that was...

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review! We agree that our hotel needs an update, and our new owners are planning on investing $18-20 million to turn this hotel into one that makes you think "Great Gatsby" when you walk in and when you see your room. They are hoping to start these renovations...

Wanted to stay here as it's a local, historic property. We ended up checking-out a day early because the hotel was just ho-hum. The room are a good size but they have not been updated recently - need a soft- and hard-goods renovation desperately! And then just some basic maintenance...paint touch ups, carpeting, etc. The staff was extremely helpful and...

We loved the hotel, stayed here last night. The building's age provides a historic feel and the rooms are very clean. The valet makes parking easy. We had a small issue with getting our room keys to work at the beginning but the issue was fixed very quickly. We would definitely stay here again!

This hotel was so nice! Really enjoyed staying here. The rooms were very clean and nice. All the front desk people were so helpful and kind. Valet parking was very nice. The lobby and downstairs was beautiful, very fancy light fixtures and detail molding and paneling. Very historic! Would definitely stay here again!

This was our second time to stay at The Read House and I wish I could say it had been enjoyable. First I would like to say all staff were friendly and helpful and were very accommodating. The lobby is beautiful with it's period décor, worth the trip to see. The room in which we stayed had a few problems....

Close to everything down town. Staff was courteous. Room was spacious and clean. I love the history of it all. I'm not sure if I was the only person in that whole area of the hotel, but I never heard stomping/screaming/barking from our neighbors. The pool is cute. It barely gets over 4' deep so don't expect much, but it...

Let's start by saying we switched rooms 3 times. All of the rooms were very hot for our liking. We usually sleep with the AC on 70. The sink has very low water pressure. The bed was comfortable yet neither my husband or I slept well. The positives are it is beautiful, I didn't hear any noise, and it's in...
