Rydges World Square Hotel

Located right in the heart of Sydney central business district, just a 20 minute drive away from the airport, Rydges World Square Hotel is an excellent place for business meetings as well as short stays, due to its convenience and accessibility. This great location also means Rydges World Square Hotel is within walking distance to many malls and several tourist attractions in Sydney.

Rydges World Square Hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, and the inside isn't much better. Decor is simple and minimal, and the lobby and foyer doesn't look attractive. The design is almost similar to an office building, and can be described as plain. Furniture in the lobby also looks and feels dated. However, the room is clean, functional, and very comfortable.

As a 4 star hotel, Rydges World Square Hotel has spacious and comfortable rooms. I was staying in the Deluxe King Room, which has an In-Room TV Guide, and movies on demand. The bathroom has both a shower and bathub, while the work desk offers paid internet access. However, there wasn't any kettle in the room to boil water, and the view is also rather lacking, as Rydges World Square Hotel is surrounded by buildings.

Food options at the Sphere Restaurant is rather standard, with a limited rotating menu of items. However, the quality of the food is pretty good, and most of the dishes are tasty and filling. Rydges World Square Hotel is able to partition out the space for business delegates, and they can comfortably accomodate up to 200 diners with back-to-back staggered dining hours.

Service at Rydges World Square Hotel is excellent. The conference and meeting facilities are good, but the staff go the extra mile for you, they are observant and attentive. Requests get carried out quickly and efficiently. In fact, I'll probably say that the service at Rydges World Square Hotel which my best experience with them, barring a minor hiccup where my request for an extended check-out wasn't recorded.

Facilities & Activities
The accessibility of Rydges World Square Hotel is fantastic. It's located right above a shopping mall, with public transport on all sides, and within walking distance to several tourist attractions. Being in the heart of the city means safety is also slightly better, and travelling to nearby offices, shopping malls or tourist attractions is also very convenient.
