We managed to get a special 3 day package through the Entertainment book with much cheaper rates then those of th hotel on line. The only trouble was that there was a messup with the booking and it wasn't in their system. Nevertheless thehelpful staff found us a unit, and it was great.
They are large, very modern and include an adequate kitchenette. The bed was excellent. Parking was free and there is atram to the city about 3 minutes walk away. A large shopping mallis about 5 minutes rive away, so this is a good location to stay at.
A few minor niggles were that we would have expected a 4 star Rydges hotel to include for a complimentary newspaper and daily replenishment of tea/coffe sachets. This didn't happen.
One hint...get a Rydges free card in advance as this gives you a free welcome drink each and a late checkut if you want it.
We thoroughly recommend this hotel.
