Booked for Friday night in a Queen room, specified a high room away from elevator so they gave us 13th floor right next to elevator! you could hear the elevator every time it went up and down. I went down to reception and they found us another room down the hall that was much better. Bed was very comfortable, room... More

Very quiet hotel. Nice clean streamlined service every visit, I know what to expect and I like it. Positives: location, beds, green rewards card for not getting your room serviced for stays if more then one night $10 credit to use in hotel. Negatives: aircons/heating are hit and miss, most are old and there's about a 20% chance you will... More

Have stayed here a couple of times on business. Overall the hotel feels tired and the rooms are quite noisy, dependent on allocated position. The location in the CBD is okay if somewhat uninteresting at night, although there are some nice restaurants around the corner in Collins Street. Meals including breakfast at the hotel are generally average and expensive to... More

Stayed here due to it being the venue for a conference. As a Rydges Priority Club gold member, I was offered an upgrade by email and accepted, paying extra for a one bedroom apartment. However, so much for a loyalty club membership!...the upgrade was not available at check in. The so-called "executive king" room was sparsely furnished and had the... More

Apart from the central location to the Melbourne CBD, this hotel is just what you expect from the Rydges brand....average. For a weekend stay to see a show (it is nearby most of the cities theatres) and be close to the city and China Town, it would be adequate. The rooms are stock standard Rydges rooms, the same decor and... More

Most convenient location directly adjacent to two live theatres. Extremely comfortable beds and a clean, comfortable room with everything we needed. The staff were amazing - so helpful, friendly and welcoming. They gave us information on the live show available and other information and a map. Obviously Rydges staff training is top class as are the staff they choose to... More

This was our second stay at Rydges Exhibition Street - both times we've stayed in the Premier Spa Suite. The Spa is huge which we just love, infact the whole room is huge. We didn't really use the living area too much but it was decked out with simple/tidy decor. The bed was a bit of a disappointment the 2nd... More

Unfortunately, we had a very poor stay to begin with... We were changed 4 times upon arrival and then a fifth time on the second night. All be it, the fifth change included a room upgrade, it was still a change too far. The staff were great from the beginning and tried to accommodate us as far as possible. We... More

Very well run hotel. Accommodation excellent.Restaurant first rate. Good service with friendly wait staff. Excellent food with a wide menu selection. Well appointed with good service. Staff well presented, friendly and well trained. Location in central Melbourne very convenient. Really close to theatre precinct is a distinct advantage of this location.
