Very friendly staff, convenient location, great paella night mid week. Rooms are mixed bag- the bathrooms are very tired, but clean, the rest of the room is quite fresh. I've stayed a couple times and the windows in one room whistled very loudly and couldn't be opened or closed further to stop the noise. I didn't change as I can... More

Stayed in the Parkview Suite which was a good size. The lounge/kitchenette area was spacious for our needs. We decided due to the weather to eat from the room service menu. Husband liked hos beef, my chicken was over cooked and just O.K. The bathroom is in need of a refurbishment, but was clean and tidy. Having windows and a... More

Good service from friendly staff who managed to get me into my room despite my early arrival (and a coffee whilst waiting). Room was well appointed (nicer room than my last stay) with a distant view of the river. Free wifi, clean room. Decent location in North Sydney

Stayed at the Rydges in McLaren Street, have been here before, this time though they have added free Wi-Fi. The rooms are well appointed and I had the added advantage of having a Water View room, watching the sunrise on a glorious Sydney morning and having that view was spectacular

It's close to the office which is why I stay. Was beginning to look better but is looking tired again. Room service menu very limited. Restaurant dinner very limited. Breakfast is great. Room smelled of cooking even though it was on 11th floor. Lifts wouldn't come to a "down" call only up. I had forgotten my razor but they didn't... More

This is a wonderful place to stay with what I feel is a very nice hotel, a delightful bar, and a very friendly staff. While the entire hotel could use a refresh (carpets, etc.), the look and feel is nonetheless clean and inviting. The staff are quite accommodating (pardon the pun) and very friendly. I especially liked the option to... More
