Having spent the afternoon / evening out with friends I had hoped to just sit and relax on the P (Pool) level to enjoy a last drink of the evening by the pool. Having found a quiet place to relax I was rather rudely told by security staff that I was sitting in an area of a private function and...

Rydges facilities are straight forward and typical of a four star hotel in Brisbane. Staff were courteous and professional. Tariff was reasonable for level of service and amenity. Pay parking is something that was disappointing.

I have just completed a one night stay for work and I must say I was thoroughly impressed. Granted I was 'upgraded' to the top floor (floor 11) with city and river view which was a more than exceptional 180 degree view over several CBD suburbs but I must commend the hotel since renovating, the room itself regardless of the...

I just completed a 5 night stay here for a work conference that was being held next door at the Brisbane Convention Centre. I'll start out with the plus- location- if you need to be at the convention centre or South Bank the location could not get better. That said, there are other, and in my experience, much better and...

The hotel itself is nothing to write home about, but also does everything moderately well. The only issue is that the doors are not sufficiently insulated and people walking out in the hallways can wake you up in the mornings. It is, however, very close to the Brisbane convention center (you don't need to leave the building) - and located...
