The Rydges Melbourne is ALWAYS my go to hotel whenever I stay in Melbourne. I always receive excellent customer service from the all the staff whether it be at the check in counter, at the bar or at the restaurant.
After arriving into Melbourne off a red-eye flight it was nice to be told that our room was ready for us. We stayed in a queen spa suite. In our room we found that the rooms have been recently renovated and so had been the furniture. Unfortunately we couldn't figure out how to operate the new sofa bed and the girls from reception were quick to rectify the situation and in the end swapped our room and made the bed for us.
Housekeeping were attentive and always came back to clean and restocked room. I also believe the fitness equipment has also been upgraded since our last stay last year with 2 bikes, a cross trainer and a treadmill.
Only one tiny minor problem in the room having two television of the same brand if we changed channels of the tv in the bedroom part of the suite it would turn on the tv in the other part of the suite, which was quite funny. We figured if you turn the remote around you can avoid that problem.
Overall a lovely stay and will be returning very soon I hope.
