I was really looking forward to my night at Rydges, and left feeling disappointed. The room was tired, and the toilet was on a strange angle so you couldn't open the door fully, along with a tiny bath and shower. The air conditioner was very noisy, and even on the 18th floor I could hear the street noise.
After paying for my room there was suddenly an additional amount taken out of my credit card - I emailed to enquire what it was for and didn't receive a reply. I then rang and was told it was for the mini bar. I have never taken anything from the mini bar in my life! I now have to call back when the accounts department are open and apply for a refund. Sigh. A lot of work and hassle for a mistake the hotel made.
All in all, I will choose somewhere else next time I am in Melbourne.
