I've stayed here move than a dozen times over the last 5 years. While its not the most luxurious hotel in Wellington, I think it has the best location if you have appointments in the government district. Reasonably priced.

The accommodation and service are all fine. Breakfast is good, and dining room transfers to a great restaurant at night.

The staff at this hotel were very helpful and friendly. There was a misunderstanding with our booking and to compensate us for waiting 30 minutes, we were given an upgrade to a mini suite on the top floor. This room was absolutely amazing, we had two balconies and views overlooking the bee hive and the harbour. The kids said this was the best hotel ever, and they have been to hundreds! This is indeed a huge compliment!

The location of this hotel was perfect, close to all attractions and to the waterfront area.

We stayed for three nights in early February. Paid the extra for a harbour view from 14th floor which was worth it. Room, beds, bathroom and fittings all that you would expect from a hotel of this class. Well located to wander off to the waterfront or back into the shopping streets and quick taxi ride to interisland ferry.
We arrived by train from Auckland and since it was late we ate in the hotel on the first night. Restaurant is a bit pokey for a hotel of this size and mostly geared to fairly average steaks and the like. Service was reasonable but slow between courses. Being lazy we also had breakfast the next morning which was a mistake. They charge nearly the same for continental as full and it is all a bit of a scrum. Plenty of places to eat out for breakfast if you get organised or use the kitchen in the room.
Lifts have a room key mechanism to get them to work - this is very hit and miss and a real pain when it fails to work.

Room Tip: The higher you are the less traffic noise there is.

Family of 3 for one overnight stay.
Parking is difficult so valet parking at $30 for one night was required.
Staff were generally helpful and friendly though checkout and car delivery took over 20 mins from point where reception call went unanswered.
Rooms were standard hotel chain rooms, clean and well presented.
Food in Potalander bar was good value

My colleagues and I have been staying at Rydges now on and off for several months, and are full of praise for the place. It is consistently clean and welcoming, and the staff are fantastic. We often talk about the fact that Phil, the Chief Concierge, is the epitome of customer service. He is friendly, welcoming, and his attention to detail is wonderful. This sets the tone for the front of house staff.
Location is great, meals are excellent, and we never have to worry about being away from home in somewhere substandard. I would highly recommend Rydges.
