Why We Love This Hotel

  • The Read House is rich in history; in fact, it holds a spot on the National Register of Historic Places; and even hosted many famous guests, like Winston Churchill and Al Capone
  • For intrepid guests, we suggest joining the daily tour of room 311—it's purportedly haunted
  • Amenities include an indoor pool, which is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • There's a Starbucks on site, so you can grab-and-go; you can also indulge in seafood and steak at Bridgeman's Chophouse or your favorite beverage at Bar and Billiards Room
  • You can take downtown Chattanooga's free shuttle (CARTA), located right outside the hotel; the shuttle runs daily and stops at every block, giving easy access to restaurants, shopping and many attractions, like the Tennessee Aquarium and Riverwalk

Booked through Travelzoo and front desk was expecting us, which is wonderful rather than having to explain yourself. Chilled champagne waiting in the room and $25 gift card for use at the hotel. Beautiful hotel in a great location, easy on/off the Hwy and within walking distance to everything. It’s our first choice when visiting Chattanooga ~ highly recommend!

Wonderful place to stay, comfortable, clean and good access to the city. We stayed in a room in the back of the hotel, the only problem was the honking of the horns from the valet as they entered the garage and each turn in the garage from 6 am to 11 pm. Even though your were gone during the day, the noise in the morning and night was annoying.
