poor stay
I was charged $100 when I checked in on my Visa, Have been home for ten days and have not been re-imbursed. I paid for my hotel expenses. Very poor. Breakfast was charged $22 each for a very poor cold breakfast, pastry was stale, very unexpected

Rydges Just OK
Nice hotel, great location -- but definitely not a 5 star. Tiny bathroom with lousy products, not-so-comfortable bed, unstocked fridge, breakfast buffet out of cans and boxes.

Moldy Shower
The Service was OK. I came into the Lobby desk at 10:30PM and there was no one at the desk. I had to call back into the office to get someone to come out. The room was clean, but run down. The bathroom was old, out of date and there was mold in the shower and a moldy shower curtain that smelled. Not Great for the money.

In urgent need of updating
Very good location and good storage in rooms but furnishings are in urgent need of updating especially the bathroom. Bathroom is very small and has a shower above the bath with a shower curtain. I would not recommend this hotel in its current state
