The hotel location is very good because the important tourist spots like the Sydney Opera House, Souvenir Market, Restaurants, China Town, Malls and The Westfield are very accessible within walking distance. The hotel is even near the shopping places and a nearby Cole's grocery is just behind.
I had a peaceful sleep in this hotel, the rooms are spacious and very clean. What I've observed though is that Cable channels are not too much wherein all channels are the same.
Please don't expect any free slippers and toothbrush / hygiene kit other than soaps in your bathroom. It was said that hotels in Sydney don't generously offer those "usual" amenities you get from a 4-5 star hotel. To add to my dismay, during our time of stay there was NO FREE wifi access which was really a major setback becuse this is the only hotel I've stayed that has NO free wifi access to all its guests otherwise, I could have given a 4 or 5 star in my review.
The staff are helpful but don't expect free butler service if you're used to someone helping you with your luggage. Butler service is with charged. As they say, nothing is free in Sydney. Everything comes with charge.
Breakfast buffet is ok but on the 3rd day I couldn't force myself to eat with gusto just what I did during my first day in Rydges because everything was all of the same. Maybe they should consider a change in their breakfast menu every other day.
Overall, it is still good to stay in this hotel because of its location and good sleep quality. Something to consider when in Sydney.
