Stayed at Rydges because of its proximity to QPAC and on that the hotel absolutely delivered. It is reviewed as a four star hotel and having stayed in much better four star hotels I'd say it's 4 with a bullet! The bed was probably one of the worst I have ever slept in with one side very saggy. I felt as though it was going to collapse completely when I sat on it.
The standard of room maintenence was very average with a worn and tattered cover around the mattrress base.
But I think the thing that bothered me the most were the splatters and smears of dried blood - yes that's what I said! - on the bed side table. I couldn't believe it. Did no one notice this when the room was cleaned. EEeeeeew!!! Felt as though i was sleeping in a crime scene.
Although it was totally convenient regarding location I think that might have been just too much. Not sure I'd come back to this one.
