                      Ease of location, close to everything.

                      Don't sleep with the window open...to much noise from surrounding areas

                      The central location was great - close to restaurants, movies, shopping and the rooms were a good size.

                      Coffee in restaurant!!!

                      Reception were very attentive and courteous. Hotel is in a great area, right next to a monorail station. Great shops & cafes in short walking distance.

                      The cost of parking is absolutely disgusting! $38.00 for less than 24 hrs (check in 2pm, check out 11am) We got the room at a great price, so I did not complain, but I would stay here again unless parking was cheaper

                      I thought it was efficient, well located, very clean and quiet. And the price was reasonable for this level of facility.

                      No negative feelings

                      location

                      cleanliness of the room and difference between the booking (deluxe king room) and the hotel offered (standard room)

                      good location

                      service charge applied to credit card payment on depature

                      8.8

                      The staff were professional and courteous. The room was very clean, comfortable and luxurious. The inclusions in the price were very good value (ie breakfast/sundowner drinks).

                      I think that wireless internet access should be a free inclusion.

                      convenience to my business meeting. the price was one of the main reasons for picking but very happily impressed by hotel!!!

                      Everything was ok except the price, $200 Australian for 1 night, and an extar $45 for parking, and no breakfast included. Far too high price. Will not use again

                      The location to the conference I needed to attend was excellent and there were plenty of restaurants around. Check in and check out was efficient. The mattress was beautifully comfortable and the inner facing room extremely quiet.

                      The hotel is getting a little tired, but this is probably what one expects for the price. However, I was surprised to see little things were not provided such as a disposable shower cap. Also, when my bed was made on the second day it was simply pulled up and the pillows made to look neat. The bottom sheet had never been properly tucked in and the resulting mess after the first night was not straightened. I did this myself before I could use the bed again.

                      The location as was good and the price was reasonable

                      It is ridiculous that this hotel does not have wireless internet in the room. It is wrong to assume that everyone has a laptop that can be connected to an ethernet cable. As a result, I will not stay in this hotel again until I know that this deficiency has been attended to.

                      We were overwhelmed with the quality of the room and everything was taken care of for us so I stay was made very pleasureable. The staff were very friendly and even remembered why we were there so we felt welcomed. We will certainly choose Rydges Square for our next stay away from home in the city.....Thankyou!!!

                      Everything was excellent.

                      Good food and great shopping all within walking distance.

                      It was rather noisy during the weekend.

                      The senior concierge was rude. When i asked to get somethings out of my car he inform me that they moved my GPS and Laptops out of site, which i was greatful for at the time. After me and my husband returned to our room at 10pm we got a phone call from the conceirge desk saying we need to come down and get our GPS out of the car. When i went downstairs i asked him why didnt he say to me earlier that i needed to removed my GPS from my car. When i asked him he said he only just got email stating this. When i said to him about the laptops he said that was up to me which i didnt understand, to me a $200 GPS compare to 4 laptops would be more important. Either way i did this but not happpy about it, or the way i was treated by him

                      After reading some reviews was a bit worried made the wrong choice, but was pleasantly surprised, room was excellent, bed and pillows very comfortable and clean, arrived early at 9am and was told a room was available imediately.. All staff very helpful, would definitely stay again
