Roof top pool and terrace were great. Room smelt musky and fan on a/c was very loud. en-suite shower was disappointing as was fact that wine glasses weren't matching. Bed sheet was also too small for the mattress. It's the little details!

The property is in a great location but desperately needs an upgrade. Not up to Rydges standards at all. Spa was broken. One of the elevators was broken. Pool area was filthy. Pool is tiny. Rooms are tiny. Bath tub was tiny. Room service very limited. Mini bar non existent. Staff was very friendly.
