Why We Love This Deal

Fellow Travelzoo members rave about The Read House, thanks to its "marvelous staff," exquisite rooms, excellent food at the on-site steakhouse and walkability to, well, everything downtown.

Rates here frequently climb over £189 per night, during the summer (when Chattanooga's outdoor concerts and festivals are in full swing). But we've negotiated a special price for members, which covers accommodations from £122 per night, a credit to said steakhouse and a welcome bottle of bubbly.

  • Stay in a Manor Room with a king or two queen beds, most dates through Sept. 8
    • £122 per night … Sunday-Thursday

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Though rooms here feel updated with modern furnishings and plenty of light, we love the nods to the hotel's 150 years of history (cocktail in the library or billiards room, anyone?)
  • For intrepid guests, we suggest joining the daily tour of room 311 — it's purportedly haunted
  • From the hotel, you'll be a short walk to the Chattanooga Riverwalk, restaurants and distilleries downtown, and top museums like the Tennessee Aquarium; you'll also be 20 minutes to hiking at nearby Lookout Mountain


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. The Bar & Billiards room serves signature cocktails and small plates in a speakeasy-inspired space. For more upscale fare, visit Bridgeman's Chophouse for a steak or fresh seafood.

Only negative is that they moved valet service onto very busy street and you have to open driver’s door into traffic.

Girls getaway. Perfect location.

Only observation was that we were never told about the free shuttle to the aquarium and the valet was inconsistent. But the front desk graciously made an adjustment in our bill. It’s such a beautiful place.
