A great place with great bars and rooms, would recommend to everyone I know. Being a priority guest rewards member is the best with a late checkout and great room rates to boot. Great staff and located close to the city.

as a priority member was slightly disappointed with the stay this time, the room was in need of a makeover with the bathroom requiring the most attention, also being quite outdated. the room linen service was terrible, having left the room at 9:00am & returning at 1:00pm only to find the room had not been serviced yet was very disappointing...

We have been a Rydges priority member for the past 3 years and stay there a few times a year. So, we booked a King Executive room online for an upcoming birthday weekend. We check in, go up to our room and it turns out its a Queen suite. So I go back downstairs and talk to the lady who... More

We stayed here for one night and had a lovely room up on the 19th floor. The rooms have been refurbished and had a new feel to it. We could not fault the room or the view of the city. I had rung to confirm our stay and Kendal from the reservations team said she would look after us and... More

We stayed there as a group. Our friend is a loyal member so we got a discount and a 1pm checkout. Rooms were clean and nice, bathroom is quite small though. I would have loved the shower to have more pressure. Breakfast was divine, buffet breakfast always hits the spot. Parking is reasonable at $29 a night.

My wife and stayed here for 2 nights while we spent a weekend in the city. Had joined up with priority which gave us a late checkout and discounted meals. At Check in we were given no information about priority or the fact that we had breakfast and parking included. Room was small but ok with great views. Bathroom was... More

Rydges in Exhibition is a great location - the rooms are large and well appointed - the front desk staff are great - the Priority system works - the bar is good BUT alas the cleaning is poorly managed and a bit slap-dash in timing and completion. How hard is it to get a good cleaning manager and to see... More

I have stayed here for business at least twice a year for there last few years. My last two visits, both week long stays were disappointing, despite the fact that the rooms have recently been renovated. There were a number of positives - breakfast continues to be excellent with plenty of choice, especially in hot foods. It is probably the... More

Stayed here for a shopping and footy weekend with 2 couples. Rooms were clean but small and poorly designed. Bed was too soft and caused back pain in the morning. I stayed in Rydges Preston last year and found the room there much better. Convenience to shopping, food and sporting venues was brilliant. Service was fantastic and food/drink on site... More

Stayed at Rydges for three nights in April. Staying due to work purposes. Second time staying in the last few years. Always a nice stay. Executive King room quite large with a couch and the bed. Tiny bathroom though, toilet right near the door and small access to get in and out of the shower. Easy walk to Chinatown and... More
