You will not look out over the ocean with rolling waves and swaying palm trees from this hotel. You are in the middle of Sydney Western suburbs complete with a highway right next to the hotel which is host to more semi trailers than you can poke a stick at. Inside the hotel however, is an oasis from all that is outside. Reception staff are amazing. They actually look as if they are enjoying their job notwithstanding the fact that they would get quite a few business type dead heads booking in from time to time. My wife and I were upgraded to the Strawberry Road suite. I can't comment about the other rooms but obviously major renovations have occurred at this hotel since we last stayed there. The Strawberry Road suite has been amazingly transformed. The spa bath is to die for. I was only enticed out of the spa by threats by my wife to stop refilling my wine glass. The fine dining restaurant "STEEDS" was mind blowing. The staff were wonderful and amazingly attentive. (Well it was my birthday and someone had tipped them off...) The food was beautiful and cooked to perfection. My wife's Italian Kilpatrick oysters were the best we had ever seen, and we've been in a lot of restaurants all over the world. This hotel obviously caters for business people. The conference rooms are buzzing with internet geeks, makeup specialists or motor vehicle salesmen. I wasn't there for any of that. The blend was perfect. The breakfast selection was amazing. I've never consumed so much ice cold chocolate milk in my life. If you're into horse racing, the nags from the nearby Rosehill Racecourse run right past the front door...sort of. The hotel is close to Sydney CBD and all the city attractions and at the same time within close striking distance of the Western Suburbs, and the Blue Mountains beyond. Car parking is easy and free for guests.

Room was comfortable, modern and very spacious (which is important to me) and had all the expected amenities. Loved the big screen TV, the big bed and the lighting. Breakfast selection was good. But what made it for us both my wife and I was the friendliness of the staff and their readiness to serve.

We really enjoyed our stay at Rydges on the weekend gone. Fantastic location for the Rosehill Races. They had a special after party area downstairs with music and food setup. Lots of security present to ensure that everyone continued to have a good time. We found the rooms very comfortable and clean and enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the restaurant. We will definitely be staying here next races function.

Just spent 2 nights here, first time back since renovations, and I must say looks great.
Dinner was also very good, went to Steeds one night and had the Fire and Ice buffet on the other.
Staff were very friendly and the service was fantastic.
Well done on the makeover, will certainly be back.
