Helpful staff
I booked a room with a bath, but when we got there they said hardly any of their rooms had baths, so they upgraded us to one with a spa! Many thanks.

Suite Room Not So Nice
We stayed here for two nights in a Jacuzzi Suite room for over 500 dollars per night. The room has serious design issues. The bed is in a place where the air conditioner is unable to reach, so no air flow and gets hot really quickly in summer. The bathroom and the jacuzzi and shower room is physically separated, so you have to walk into the living room in order to go from the bathroom to the shower. And the suite is located on a lower level which makes it easy for wild lives such as frogs to live there, too.

Great stay at Rydges
Location was good (only 3 team stops from Melbourne Central) and the tram station was right in front of the hotel. 7-11, cafe, KFC and Subway are also just 2 min walk down the street only. Hotel room was big with 2 queen beds and comes with a sofa chair/ table also, and still spacious. Service staff were also friendly and helpful. Swimming pool is small but doesn't matter since we can't swim in winter. There's only 1 lift but it's quite big and doesn't have to wait long also. Alternatively, can also take the stairs since it's only 4 storeys high. Overall good experience. Will definately stay again if I have the chance to visit Melbourne again.
