The lobby is architecturally beautiful and the staff were friendly, but it needs some TLC. I would've enjoyed some free coffee in the lobby. The coffee maker in my room didn't function and I could hear the people next door to me being "frisky," as I entered my room one night. Luckily, the bed was comfortable! Or this would've been a complete disaster. The exercise room is small and narrow- good for one person at a time. No pool/spa. Parking needs to be validated - cost is $2. Shady neighborhood with nothing to do. The reason I chose to stay here is because I was attending an event at the Sovereign Center. WARNING: for early event goers. Coffee runs out quickly in and around Center. Purchase coffee early and/or a few blocks away from Center.

Room Tip: Bring your own small coffee maker and coffee.

I stayed here recently on a trip to Reading PA for business. There are not many choices in the area so when I saw a great deal on the Wyndham, I took it. The hotel was in downtown but not much to eat or do in walking distance.

The staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean. The rooms were HUGE. The amenities were average like you would find in a typical name brand Inn, nothing special. The room was quiet, bed was a bit hard, but all in all it was spacious, clean and no issues. Free wireless and bottled water in the room. Parking was only $6.00 for overnight.

Pros: the lobby is interesting and attractive, the staff is helpful, parking is free and the rooms are a nice size.

Cons: the rooms are pretty run down and there was some strange - loud - mechanical noise just outside our room all night long. We kept hoping it would stop and so didn't ask (in the middle of the night) for another room. In retrospect, we should have.

We generally lean toward older hotels with some character, but this wasn't a good call.

My buddy is getting married in a month or so. He got with this hotel and reserved their weekend for family and friends. Some of us were able to book and others weren't. They couldn't book because the hotel gave out those rooms.

When the hotel was notified they couldn't care less. I called to cancel my reservation and they sounded like it was an inconvenience to them to cancel.
