I thought the hotel was beautiful and I liked the openness of the lobby bar, nice live music the one night. I found the waitstaff to be fairly good and always friendly. Front doormen were always there, always smiling and helpful.
The elevators are a bit slow. The beds were comfy, room service was good - fairly quick and food was hot. Some of the conference area is old, dark and the low ceilings made it feel cramped. The banquet food was marginal - they messed some of it up but I guess I have low expectations. The meeting rooms were rather chilly.
Location was good and I loved being able to walk to Reading Market Terminal for lunch one day and then I took the train out to see some colleges and it was very easy. Would have been more so - if the ticket seller and the conductor would have quoted me the same price... but I'd stay there again.
