There is not adequate clothes storage (chest if drawers). There are not enough elevators for the amount of people staying in the hotel. The indoor pool was cold (what's the point of having an indoor pool if its not heated?)

Comfortable bed, clean room, elevator was prompt. Property was easy on the eyes. Carpet in hall, 5th floor, musty odor. TP could be upgraded. Yummy drink from the bar.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nice, older, downtown hotel with a vibe reminiscent of the 20s-30s. Easy access to places of interest either walking or driving. Room was a recent remodel, comfortable, and well appointed. Bar area is nice, there is a Starbucks on the property, and a steakhouse which I didn't try and regret that I didn't. I would stay here again.

The room was not updated and smelled bad. Very disappointed in my stay. The lobby was the best part. Valet parking at $22 a day was poor at end of visit. Bellhop asked if I needed help with luggage which I didn’t need. Took my ticket for valet service but it was misplaced and waited 15 minutes for car. Had to ask valet what was going on. My stay was not consistent with high ratings.

Amazing Property. Quite unassuming from the outside but from the moment the staff greets you, the experience begins. The lobby is tastefully decorated, the rooms are clean, beds quite comfortable with Blackout drapes. 5 star dining restaurant AND Starbucks in the lobby. Perfect spot for my weekend trip

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Upon arrival I was given two options and to chose one. I opted for the old residence of The Read House. Big mistake! No hot water coming from the shower head. Stopped by the front desk late morning and voiced my objections. I was offered a room in the new building for the duration of my stay. That change was much better and made the remaining time very enjoyable at the Read House.
