Closer to the airport than other Rydges hotels, the breezy North Melbourne location is great for on-the-go travelers. Taking a tip from the wooded elegance of Australia’s wonderful natural beauty, the North Melbourne Rydges offers 70 newly refurbished guest rooms that are stylish yet comfortable with earth-toned, suede furnishings that exudes sophistication and elegance. The entire hotel is aligned with minimalist eco-architecture and breezy daylight ambiance -excellent for travelers in search of a peaceful retreat. Enjoy a good meal at the Polo Café and bar, great for morning buffet and evening cocktails, and maybe relax in the outdoor heated pool, boasting, like most Rydges concepts, great views of the city. For the business and meeting room crowd the expected necessary conference rooms and business amenities are set and ready to go in a suitable professional atmosphere. For leisure travelers, a multitude of local attractions are nearby, some of which include Melbourne Zoo, Colonial Stadium, Victorian Art Center and National Gallery of Victoria.
