The hotel with the coldest pool ever
The hotel was all fine with helpful staff, but was utterly disappointed with the pool. It was the reason that I chose this hotel, but the water was freezing and I ended up not using it at all, which kind of made it pointless.

Change in Hotel name - disservice to the Rydges br
I stayed in this Hotel when was under Holiday Inn banner and I was happy with my choice then. With a change into Rydges brand I was less than impressed with the overall experience during my one night stay. Internet was faulty - not accessible for all the day & night I checked-in. It took couple of phones to get extra chair. However Room service dining was a pleasant experience with variety of tasty options incl. exotic 100% Australian stake tartare choice - I tried for the first time while in Australia.

Super Nice Place
Super nice. The hotel is now called Rydges. Very close to the cruise port, opera house, harbor bridge, ferry terminal and tons of restaurants
vance, us1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Thank you for a wonderful NYE and Anniversary.
The hotel is conveniently located near the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The view from the rooftop is amazing. We were fortunate enough to be there for New Year's Eve and the fireworks were spectacular from the roof. The breakfast was fulfilling with an omelette bar, juicing station, fresh fruit, pastries and many hot items (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, baked beans). There are bars, restaurants and a convenience store within walking distance. There is a 'hop-on hop-off' bus that picks up right outside the hotel that takes you to many locations including Bondi beach. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. When we were going on our excursions they looked up our routes to see if there were any road closures due to the fires.
