We travelled from Perth to Melbourne, my girlfriend and I, for to see Bruce Springsteen at the Hanging Rock reserve. Firstly we hadn't a clue where the hanging rock was and secondly, we didn't know how to get there' on our arrival at the hotel they were our first questions. The lady that checked us in wasn't familiar how to get there either but assured us she would follow through if we left it with her' after a few drinks and arriving back at the hotel that night. We asked the lovely 'Michelle' if her counterpart earlier had left any transport info on reception for us- she had not. Michelle endeavoured to find us a route to the concert, she was very knowledgable of this area out in the Victorian bush and fought with her unwilling Internet to find us transport to the event. Not on the long finger, but right there and then we were printed bus and train timetables and even a free shuttle organised for the event. The following night we arrived back from the show exhausted, looking forward to our very comfortable bed, where we were met by Travis, my girlfriend enquired about check- out times, as our flight was not until 8.pm, Travis graciously offered us late check-out and complimentary breakfast' a pure gentleman, we weren't just a room number, the night staff at Rydges made us feel unexpectedly privileged and are extremely approachable, polite, informative and helpful, thanks guys for making our trip to Melbourne a great one, Ross and Jean...
