Good location A review of Rydges on Swanston Melbourne
We have stayed in this hotel several times and have found it to be in a very good location. There is a tram stop right outside virtually on one of the main lines which goes all the way to St Kilda if you choose. Lygon Street with it's great restaurants and cafes is literally 2 streets away and the National Museum of Victoria and Exhibition Centre are within walking distance.
We did request a non-smoking room and our room did have a smokey aroma. Unfortunately as the hotel was full we were unable to change rooms, but it really wasnt too bad once we opened the windows.
Reception was very professional and friendly and we were able to store our bags after checkout for the rest of the day. They also booked a Skybus (shuttle to the airport) for us with no hassles.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
