Hotel was pretty nice. But, fire alarm went off at 5am to evacuate the whole building with no explanation. Valet parking damaged my wheel and WILL NOT take responsibility. I know for a fact it was them and showed them as soon as they drove it around.

WOW... 5 out of 5

This was the best hotel experience ever. The property is in a great location with close proximity to anything downtown Chattanooga. It is spacious, clean, with a lot of history and character, and a very friendly staff. My wife and I got a 7th floor double queen bed room with a nice view. The beds were extremely comfortable and I had no problems filling asleep. Normally I have problems with that at other hotels. The restaurant was extraordinary. The amenities were great. I’ve used the gym and it was a pleasant experience. The valet parking definitely beat the hassle of self parking and it wasn't that much more than parking in a public space. The valet guys were courteous and fast. I would recommend the Read House Hotel to anyone.

Customer Service was five star - from the check in to valets to room service! Room service made a couple of little mistakes but cheerfully fixed them. Shower would soak floor and water pressure could be a lot stronger. One thing I did not like was double beds. Hubby and I barely fit.
