After staying at Rydges in Auckland we were expecting the same excellence. The valet parking is diabolical especially as they charge you $30 a day to use it. There is limited parking outside of the hotel and you have to wait for a car/taxi to move so that you can park. Reception staff were not friendly with as a matter of fact atitude. Room was what we expected until we saw that it had not been cleaned and someones hair strands in the bathroom and had not been vacuumed for a long while.
The only plus is the location and the reception staff need to be re-trained to actually help people and maybe smile a little. To top it all when leaving our car was parked acroos the road with no help offered. And the cherry on the cake was the 2% charged to my credit card.
