This was my boyfriend and I second time staying at the Rydges Melbourne. The first time we found the hotel very accomodating and in a great location that we returned. We actually booked our first night through Zuji and I wouldn't recommend that because it was just a major fail because the staff told me that the room we had booked through zuji wasn't even available. But staff were pleasant to fix this all up and assign a room asap as we were still half asleep.
Our first night we stayed in an executive king and the remaining 6 nights in a deluxe queen. The rooms have had some renovating and I thought they looked nice and quite modern. Being on the 13th floor I didn't find any probs with street noise but our room was close to lift so sometimes that was a little noisy.
The room was clean and cool esp when we arrived during a heatwave. If you have the option get breakfast included its really good. The egg chef will cook your eggs however you want and they have a wide selection of hot and cold foods.
Since my last visit they have introduced a fitness center and a partnership with Fitness first. They only have a few machine in the fitness center but if you want to do a proper workout you might as well walk down to the Fitness First QV on Russell street with excellent facilities.
A great stay would happily return in a heartbeat.
