Got to the rydges and the service was very good and the staff were polite and helpful. I stayed there for 7 nights over the australian open period. I checked into a Queen Spa Suite. Walking towards the lifts I saw and old side of the hotel and a new side of it. I got allocted in the old side and as I got in the lifts from 1930 i thought i would die. Passage smelt like glen 20 which was disgusting to say the least. Wall in need of a paint, new carpets need in passage way and also new lighting because its dark and gloomy. Now the rooms were terriable. Furniture from off the side of the street , broken fittings, stains on carpet etcc they said to me our suites have not been furnished and will not be getting and treatment anytime soon.
