Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), a privately owned hotel ownership and management firm based in Atlanta, today announced that it has assumed management of the 241-room Sheraton Read House located at 827 Broad St. in downtown Chattanooga, TN. HVMG now has a portfolio of 42 hotels located in 17 states.
“Recently, HVMG was approved to third party manage Starwood brands including Luxury Collection, Westin, and Sheraton so as 2013 progresses, we expect to add more upscale full-service Starwood properties to our portfolio like the Sheraton Read House Chattanooga,” says HVMG President & CEO Robert Cole. HVMG has more than doubled the size of its portfolio since the beginning of 2010. It added nine hotels and two conference centers to its portfolio in 2012 after adding eight hotels in 2011 and seven hotels in 2010.
The Sheraton Read House is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga along the city’s free electric shuttle line near the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center, Tennessee Aquarium and other attractions.

The landmark, 10-story brick and terra cotta hotel was built in the Georgian Style and adorned with lavish appointments such as carved and gilded woodwork, and Waterford chandeliers. Meticulously restored to its original grandeur, the Sheraton Read House Hotel Chattanooga features renovated guest rooms with the luxurious Sheraton Sweet Sleeper™ bed and Drexel Heritage furniture, 19,000 square feet of meeting space including the majestic Silver Ballroom, new state-of-the-art exercise facility, new indoor heated pool, 24-hour valet parking, private Club level/lounge, 24-hour business center, the upscale Porter’s Steakhouse serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, a Starbucks® Coffeehouse, and room service.
