When first arriving at Rydges our car was taken via valet parking, a great service provided. We then went to check in at 3:30pm an hour and a half after official check in and our rooms were not ready. We did recieve complimentary drinks in the bar but was still a little annoyed. The rooms were a great size but the lighting in the room was terrible on one side of the room as there are no down lights. Understand that this is for atmosphere but you should be able to have the option of turning them on if needed. The shower in one of our rooms was broken and therefore had to hold the nozzle while showering, too late at night to even think about getting it fixed. The rest of the stay was fine until we went to check out and was hit with a $35.00 charge per car per night for valet parking. There was no information given about the price of the valet at check in and if there was we would have considered not bringing a car and catching public transport. This was ridiculous that we had to pay this when the 2 rooms cost up to $500.00 a night. NOT HAPPY!!! Communicatio is key Rydges.
