The location of this property is fantastic, close to many dining and entertaining options. It was the perfect spot to easily walk to the convention Centre. The best feature, in my opinion, is the bed, the linen was fresh and soft and the mattress and pillows super comfortable, this alone makes Rydges superior. Great view from the balcony towards the river and Queen St. Another great stay, thanks.

The valet staff offered to take our bags to our room which we accepted, but after 45mins our bags still hadn’t been brought up and we had an appointment we needed to get to so I went back down to the foyer to see our bags sitting unattended on a trolley while the valet staff were outside talking. I got the trolley and took our bags up the lift to our room myself (which isn’t a big deal), but if they are going to offer to bring bags to a persons room. I’d expect that to occur within about 15 mins or so.

The staff are the happiest and friendlies I've seen for a long time especially in the city area. Very helpful and always smiling especially for concierge who were flat out but still smiling. Shame i missed on giving a tip for one of them who also delivered our luggage to our room and always got our car for us. Sorry never got your name but you were wonderful thankyou.
