The Read House is a nice older hotel that is touted as a four star hotel, but the amenities were a little disappointing. I like a hotel with a fridge and microwave. It was noisy in the hallways and between the rooms, so the walls were a bit thin, which is understandable for a hotel of that age.
There is a pretty nice workout room for a hotel as well as an indoor swimming pool.
What I didn't like was the parking and luggage scam. The attendant said he wasn't allowed to let me take my own luggage up to the room, and parking is valet only for $15 per day. That ensures tips. If I were to stay there again, I'd use the surface lot across the street for $8 per day.
I really like the location, as the hotel is on the free downtown shuttle route, which is a real timesaver. The shuttle comes every 5-10 minutes.
Overall, a good stay.
