My wife and I have been coming it the Read House for 4 years now. Great older hotel with charm. Can't beat the location close to everything downtown. Our porter, Logan, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We will be back!

Got a very good rate for this hotel with a "secret deal" but after reading some mixed reviews and seeing that you were forced to use valet parking, I was really disappointed and almost dreaded the trip. Although we still were not thrilled to have to use valet parking, the valets were super friendly and helpful and quick with getting your car. The lobby was beautiful and even though we didn't use the pool or exercise room, they both looked great. Room was large, bed comfortable, good TV. I had read several reviews about trouble with internet but we didn't have any at all. Others complained about hearing the elevators but we were right next to it and didn't have any issues at all. Only real complaint on room was it was a little dark, needed a little more lighting but I have that same complaint at most hotels. It was overall a pleasant stay.

We stayed at the Read House as part of a weekend getaway to ride the Christmas train. The staff was very attentive and accommodating from the valet/bellhop who unloaded our van to the front desk attendant who gave us a quick follow-up welcome call when we got to our rooms. There were 6 of us between our two rooms (5 humans of all ages and one dog). We were on the 3rd floor (dog friendly). The rooms were fresh with heavenly beds and no trace of dog odors or hair. The indoor heated pool features a waterfall from the back wall which gives a great back massage when you stand under it. The workout facility has a great variety of new equipment fitted with individual televisions and ipod connections for music. They even provide complimentary, new earbuds (located in a basket near the door). The hotel has a restaurant and a Starbucks within the building along with a few sundries available from the front desk but no gift shop. There is a convenience store across the street from Starbucks but I would not recommend it. We encountered a couple of seedy characters asking for money and a man carrying a crack pipe when we walked to it but no real issues. We ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant. It was included in the price and was convenient to not have to leave the premises. The food was a full hot buffet with fresh fruit, juice and coffee. Our rooms were in the new wing of the hotel so that may have made a positive difference in our stay compared to some reviews I've read. Overall a very enjoyable stay with super comfy beds. Rooms are relatively large with a sitting area with two chairs and a table while the bathrooms are a little small but serviceable.

Room Tip: The covered valet parking is worth the $15 because it includes unlimited in/out privileges and you g...

The Valet team was outstanding at the Read House. I would recommend you use this service, its worth the $15. This valet team also pointed me in the right direction for great places to eat. Kudos to Joseph & Camero for the great customer service!

It has been a while since I stayed downtown and not only was the hotel a great value but the location was awesome! Cody the Valet gave us some great advise on places to see and eat! He also showed us the shuttle which was great getting us around downtown. I would highly recommend staying at the Read House to my friends and family!
