The Renovation

The Roaring ‘20s came roaring back in October 2018. Historic Read House finished a $25 million-dollar renovation and the “Great Gatsby” returns to Chattanooga. Guests are invited to experience the grandeur and opulence of the era—a time of unprecedented economic prosperity. Avocet Hospitality Group worked with historians and architects, recreating a modern version of the hotel’s 1926 stateliness. The result will be a unique experience for guests. This renovation marks the rebirth of Read House, often said to be, “One of the finest hotels in the country.”
