The Read House
HOTELS (REGIONAL) > Best Renovation (within past year) > Southeast
After a $27 Million renovation, The Read House reopened its historic portion of the hotel. The original hotel was built in 1926, and The Manor Building added in 1964. During Phase I, the historic structure was closed while rooms were rebuilt with new layouts, walls, plumbing, electrical, technology and furnishings. The grand lobby, Silver Ballroom and the Green Room were restored to retain the historic nature of the hotel, including all of the plaster and silver leaf in the Silver Ballroom, and the original Russian Walnut in the grand lobby.
