I really enjoyed staying in this hotel but there were some down sides. Parking is 30 dollars a day, there is no dedicated hotel set down area, its a loading zone on a busy street which is often used as a taxi rank, very annoying in peak times. Can make for a stressful arrival. Non peak times its fine, but I feel like rydges was just cutting corners in its build. Another example of this is the hotel gym, big pool spa, sauna, then a smaller little triangle cardio and weight room, one broken treadmill, one bike and some free weights. Not up to international standard.
The hotel restaurant was excellent I really enjoyed the food. Rooms were well fitted out and quiet, modern stylish, generally a delight. Downside was no free unlimited internet, they provide one free 20 min session a day per device. This was not well advertised.
Service at reception and concierge desk was mixed, some above and beyond, others struggled for a local restaurant tip. At times it felt understaffed.
Overall i woud stay again, just think they missed the mark slightly for a great experience.
