Very enjoyable stay
Room was ready early which was great. Staff friendly and helpful. Location great especially during Vivid. Being able to access roof and pool area to view the lights was especially good. Only issue was that the air-conditioning was set and room was too warm. Loved visiting the bar area at the end of the day and Happy Hour with friendly bar staff there to help.

Excellent Location
Oddly - extremely poor wifi in lobby so I had trouble pulling up my reservation at check in. Wifi in room was slow. The hotel is old but very clean and in an excellent location - The Rocks. They need to clean their window panes though! Staff was nice but I got no Hotels dot Com upgraded room even though I knew they were available. The room was OK - comfortable bed, but the bathroom needed updating. The best things about this place - a reasonable rate and an excellent location near restaurants, museums, botanical garden and transportation.....ferries are VERY close.

Fantastic Location
The Rydges is in the perfect location to check out the Sydney Harbour. Just a short walk from the harbour bridge and opera house. Lots of great restaurant choices nearby. Staff is friendly and helpful. Beds and pillows are comfortable. Happy hour in lobby lounge from 4-6 pm.

4/10 Fair

Not good value fir money for the city
As a gold vip member my benefits were non existent. Declined upgrade room, declined late checkout, although an online booking for upgraded room were available. My $25 food /beverage credit, I had to ask them to deduct it in checkout. Room on level 2 near the garbage binds outside, woken at 4 with collection by constant noise, shower was over a very small narrow bath. No extras like toothbrush, or even cookies. Small tv, overall room needed a major overhaul for a city hotel and for the price, no view (except garbage bins) so couldn’t even say we’re paying for the view.

Long weekend stay
Very friendly & helpful staff, it was during Vivid, so quite busy, but very central to what we wanted to do. Only fault was our room 102, it was at the front of the building, and we could hear the noise on the street and night club below, late at night & early in the morning.
