Online check in was efficient and I was offered a very affordable upgrade to a one bedroom suite with a great spa bath. I took up the offer and had the best stay in the heart of Melbourne. Check in was quick and the staff were extremely friendly. My room was ready and waiting for me, as promised through the text I received the night before.
I was impressed with the size of the room and the partitioned bedroom area, with large walk in robe and luggage storage. There were bath robes supplied and when I asked about slippers, they were brought in straightaway. Room service was very quick and the staff member was very polite and discreet. The food was hot, delicious and well presented.
I was very impressed with the bathroom, especially the lovely spa bath which was extremely comfortable and everything worked well. The staff even arranged for a couple of extra amenities for the bath.
The conference that I was attending was in the hotel itself and that made it very convenient for me as I didn't need to travel to a different venue. The conference room set up was excellent as was the meal breakout area, Bobby McGees which was an amazing space!
I requested a late checkout and the hotel was able to accommodate me which meant that I could take my time getting ready for my flight back home.
All in all, I had a fantastic stay at Rydges Melbourne and would highly recommend staying here and taking advantage of any upgrade offer.
Thank you to everyone at Rydges that made my stay memorable.
