Reviewed 7 October 2015

I stayed at the Rydges courtesy of the organizers of a conference where I was speaking. The room was spacious, well appointed, and possessing a wonderful view of the South Bank. I appreciated the modern elegance of the location next to the Conference Centre as well as the proximity to the amazing downtown core of Brisbane.

I've found my favourite part of Brisbane and it's definitely Southbank. The hotel is very nice and the rooms are clean, comfortable and tidy. Nothing too flash but good value for the money. The location is fantastic. A million restaurants just across the street and along the waterfront on Little Stanley Street. Every kind of food you could ever want....

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and the staff took very good care of us for our wedding and our two nights stay afterwards. The view was stunning and the bed was comfortable.

This was my first visit, and I was very impressed by the level of service. They emailed me ahead of my stay to confirm the reservation, and put me on a “fast-track check-in” which sped up the arrival process. The room itself is OK – could probably do with a facelift as it looks very well used and a bit...

Brisbane Region, Australia
Reviewed 4 October 2015

I'm not too sure if they are upgrading this hotel, but the rooms are looking a bit tired, especially the bathrooms which could do with a facelift. The noise from the corridors can be quite annoying as the doors have a gap at the bottom in some rooms. Avoid anywhere near the lifts if you want to sleep.

I am staying here at the moment and wouldnt stay again. They have an open outdoor bar with horrible thumping DJ House music that is ringing through my room on the 3rd floor even with the doors and blinds closed.

Location is great as it is located near the Parklands. I would like to think that it's a hotel more for business rather than leisure stays though. The room we had was big but average looking. Service was usual. Valet parking is mandatory in this hotel. I paid 804 AUD for 2 nights which was rather steep in my opinion...

We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions, we find the accommodation super convenient, this trip we chose a short family vacation so chose to book a suite on the upper level at a dramatically increased cost from the usual business stop over.
