We drove in from New York to watch a concert. It looked like a neat hotel to stay in and it was close to Santander Theater (within walking distance) so it seemed like a good choice. Parking was a little confusing...we had our truck and it wouldn't fit in the free parking garage. They let us park across the street... More

In principal I love this place, would want to heap stars upon it. The lobby and public spaces are very gracious with stone and brass and elegant too. The rooms have experienced some rehab, have wonderful free wifi, nice bedding, really nice work chairs, good pillows. I would stay here anytime and happily. At the same time though there's a...

This was a nice hotel it had a very fancy feel to it. We just stayed one night to go out with friends. The bathroom shower was awful that was the only downfall but a big enough downfall that I would not choose this hotel again.

We stayed at the Abraham Lincoln Wyndham last year while attending an event in Reading and were pleasantly surprised by this gem! The staff is friendly, attentive and the breakfast in the morning was wonderful. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. Our only "complaint" is that our large truck did not fit in the parking garage, so we... More

My wife and I stayed here last weekend for one night. We were in town for a concert at the Santander Performing Arts Center (awesome venue btw) and chose the hotel because its proximity and a Groupon deal for under 100/night. The hotel is historic and the lobby area is beautiful as well as the bar area in the Mezzanine... More

Me and my wife stayed at this hotel for a wedding in the area. We really had such a great time here. The bar was very friendly and inviting. The room was very nice, and the staff was amazingly friendly. We were also very impressed with the live entertainment the hotel had. Saturday night we sat in the lounge and... More

First of all, if you are expecting a dingy chain hotel, stay somewhere else. This property deserves guests that appreciate its historic charm and wonderful staff. Yes, there are repairs going on, but like with any historical property there are bound to be repairs and renovations going on. This place is clearly on top of those being made and the... More

Definitely an older property from the 30's in downtown Reading. But the staff is impeccable! The lobby bar is great, pub fare is good, live entertainment like concerts. Museums and restaurants within walking distance. Shopping, not so much. Bonus: wine store 2 blocks away!

We checked in late on Friday after seeing pictures online showing what appeared to be a beautiful historical hotel. We were extremely disappointed by our room 1120. There were holes in the shower walls. Tile was missing around the base of the tub. The baseboard was peeling. The shower was either hot or cold and would shut off if you... More

I want to say a special thank you to the Abraham Lincoln Hotel. On March 28th a bridal shower was held for my future daughter in law. The Abe catered a brunch with a selection of delicious little sandwiches, quiches, eggs Benedict, a waffle bar with lots of toppings, a mimosa and sangria bar. It was perfect. The room was... More
