About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Nice 4 start hotel in the middle of the city. The location is great for accessing the city and surrounds. The conference rooms were large and well equipped. All the usual services are available. Well recommended.

Review:   Great location. Very close to the wharf, sky tower and shops. Rooms are big albeit with smaller closets. Housekeeping did a great job all four days that we were here. Valet parking is a little expensive. Their breakfast hours are until 11.00 am which might be useful for some leaving later in the day.

Review:   Big ups to Rydges for recognising special occasion of our stay.. . A birthday surprise acknowledged with a room upgrade to a suite and complementary wine, cheese and fruit tray waiting for us when we got back from dinner. This is why I keep booking Rydges 😚😎😁

Review:   Couldn't fault the place.. stayed there with my partner and we're not really used to staying in hotels but we thought it was really great.. there was a little complimentary chocolate each and free tea, coffee, sugar and milk.. a spacious room with a big comfy double bed, a comfortable chair and a desk with a desk chair.. there was a wardrobe and place to put your bags/cases, a mini bar with quite reasonable prices.. there were multiple lights and one had a dimmer switch, there was aircon and a full length mirror.. there was a TV and when we entered the room there was a welcome message with my name on it.. what more could you want? .. the shower/toilet was a touch small but the shower was really nice, good temperature, great pressure.. we paid for the buffet breakfast at the café/restaurant place and this was also amazing, so much choice and variety! The room was pretty expensive for our budget but I am not sure how it compares to other places because, as I mentioned, we're not used to staying in hotels.

Review:   New year's Eve event, this event was very good as it provides free flowing alcohol, chocolate fondue and some other food. The view of the fireworks is limited, so if you are going here just for the view, don't. The rooftop is covered and has a small section to take a look at the skytower. If you are up for a new years party then this is for you. If you want a view of the fireworks I would say give it a miss
