We enjoyed our 3 nights at this hotel. On the 11th floor in a Junior Suite. Nice big lounge room/kitchenette, with separate bedroom..BUT tiny bathroom!! work that out??!! Fantastic balcony with wonderful views overlooking the Brisbane river and city. Elevators in building were rather slow. Very enjoyable breakfast in the Bacchus Dining area, with plenty of variety.

Dear dancingdooth, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a wonderful review. I am glad to read that your stay was overall enjoyable. Our Junior Suites unfortunately do not offer a bathtub like the King Suites in the Hotel, however, these rooms are immaculately appointed and offer two private balconies, some overlooking the river.

I was here for work for 1 night - the hotel is convenient to the Convention Centre but is otherwise a generic hotel with little to distinguish it from any other. The 3rd floor room had limited desk/ work space which did not assist.

The bed was very comfortable, the hotel was quiet and it was great having the pool bar down stairs. The staff were very professional and the internet was great too. I would highly recommend friends and family to stay here.

We recently stayed here overnight prior to an international flight the following morning. The hotel is in a very central location. Easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars. We had a superior twin room with two queen beds in a room that was larger than average. Our balcony overlooked the Brisbane wheel which is lit up at night. Valet...

I stayed at this hotel for one night while exhibiting at the conference centre. The hotel is joined to the centre making it very easy to go between your room and the exhibition hall. The hotel was very clean with corporate styling. My room was on the 10th floor and although it didn't have much of a view, it was...

The Rydges hotel in Brisbane is a good quality organization with nice accommodations. The room I had was contemporary and attractive. It was generally comfortable, except even after 5 nights of stay I could not get the air conditioning to be warmer than sub artic temperatures. The staff were helpful, friendly and attentive.
