The Read House is a historial hotel on the National Historic Register. There is museum quality art serving as a tribute to the Civil War. This is why I chose it. The lobby area was very beautiful with a Victorian feel.
While the room was clean enough, the oldness of the hotel was very apparent in the cracked walls, poor air circulation, and small rooms. They were undergoing some renovations so we tried to overlook the problem areas.
The staff were very nice, accommodating, and professional.
It is located in downtown Chattanooga about eight blocks from the Aquarium.
