Chamber maids need to realise that the moment guests enter a room, their impression is formed. To pay $20 for an upgrade (a suggestion made by the desk clerk), for a room with a better view, leads one to expect that the room will, in fact be "better". To enter that room and find it completely dark, with curtains right over the major window, and indeed one curtain "hanging" from a rail, does not make a guest happy. A pleasant concierge got up on a chair and re-attached the curtain but the moment had passed. A couple of old cigarette butts on the balcony didn't help either. Neither did the mismatched collection of glasses - two beer glasses and one wine glass - another was requested and brought to the room - yet another size! Is it so hard to expect that two guests need (hopefully) a glass each, the same size?
Rydges is in a great position for an overnight stay when one is doing a show at QPAC - it's also near the Museum and Southbank Parklands. Desk staff and concierges are very helpful, and car parking is cheaper than some hotels. We'll go back, but hope they sharpen up these small items.
