“The Read House has done much more than bring the hotel back to life – it has brought a higher level of customer service through an engaged and caring staff.  My events have gone off without a hitch and the feedback I receive from participants has been very complimentary.  For many, it was their first experience at the Read House and a very positive one at that.”  – Tim Daugherty, CMP
