Spent 3 nights here for a conference in the convention centre next door (accessible only via poorly signposted 3 flights of stairs, no lift). Was given a noisy room on 1st floor ovelooking the roof of the bar below, and was assured at check-in that it was a deluxe queen. Old fashioned bathroom - cold water tap over sink fell apart when first used, no plug for sink. However worst feature was the large number of cigarette butts (>200 I would guess) on the roof just over the low balcony railing, plus soft drink bottles and other rubbish, despite signs everywhere stating Rydges is a non-smokinh hotel. Could have easily been swept/ vacuumed up in 5 minutes. Also room telephone would not work until I untangled several cords and disconnected the nearby modem. TV remote impossibly slow to change channels, AM radio didn't work. Breakfast buffet fairly ordinary and overpriced. Overall, really not worth the (supposedly discounted) cost compared to other hotels in Brisbane. I frequently travel and have stayed at various hotels in every capital city in Australia and this would be the worst ever in my experience.
