What a location! What a hotel. I would definitely recommend Rydges for all who are wanting a central and modern hotel in Wellington. The hotel itself is probably:
5 minutes walk from Parliament (the Beehive)
5 minutes walk to good CBD shopping
10 minutes walk to Cuba Street
15 minutes walk to Courtnay place and Te Papa
The rooms are modern and luxurious, the staff are very thoughtful and attentive and the food is excellent. I really can't fault this hotel. Having stayed around the time of some earthquake activity - I can say I felt completely safe in this building.
