Recently restored to its original 1920s glory, the Gatsby-esque lobby boasts opulent chandeliers, black and white checkered marble floors, velvet armchairs and grand archways. Tastefully styled and centrally located, The Read House is near the Tennessee Riverwalk, AT&T Ballpark, University of Tennessee Chattanooga and the Tennessee Aquarium. Historic elements are found throughout the hotel, including a library area, billiards room and an old-school phone booth. Room 311 is even said to be haunted by the ghost of a past guest -- daily tours of this spooky room are available for those who are brave enough.

Chattanooga is rooted in history but also an increasingly popular destination known for its up-and-coming culinary scene, trendy bars, shops, art galleries and easy access to outdoor activities. Enjoy an array of activities like hiking, rock climbing, museums and the top rated Tennessee Aquarium, all of which can be reached by foot or by Chattanooga's free electric shuttle that stops right outside the hotel. Also nearby are Lookout Mountain and Ruby Falls, two popular outdoor destinations for visitors and locals alike.

Rooms are spacious and come standard with SmartTVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, and Keurig coffee makers. Guests have access to the indoor pool and fitness center, as well as the full-service Starbucks, located just off the main lobby.

Many things, but the most frustrating was that we have specific covid precautions we are taking, and we booked this hotel because they said explicitly said they "required" all guests and staff to wear masks. This was a lie. Many guests and staff were not wearing masks. When we mentioned this to the hotel staff, they told us explicitly that they were not even asking anyone to wear masks, they were simply "hoping" that people would. When we told them, respectfully, that this was against the law in the county they were in, and a contradiction with the hotel's stated policies, they told us that there was nothing they could do but hope people would wear masks. We have this all in writing. If they're not going to even ask guests or staff to wear masks, that's one thing, but we were very upset that they said explicitly online and on the phone that they had strict mask policies. We were lied to, quite simply, and we would not have booked this stay if the hotel had been honest.

I loved everything about the hotel. The ambience and old world feel wrre so authentic. The rooms were so well done and stylish, and I absolutely loved the bathroom. The black and white combo was so stylish, and the large shower and barn style door was so nice. I would definitely stay at The Read House again!

Overall great experience, great staff, food was excellent... only issue was the some of the room maintenance was so-so but that’s being kind of picky. Will definitely be going back.
