With an early flight to Singapore the following morning, we chose to spend our final night in Sydney at the on-site Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel.
My stay took place after the hotel first opened in June 2013. But if you check very recent reviews on Trip Advisor, you can see that nothing has changed. We booked promo rates of around $100/night. Since the price was reasonable, my uncle and I each booked our own room (he snores). Note that rates typically are as cheap as $125 and as much as $280. Dayrooms and family suites are available.
My room was comfortable and open. The bathroom counter was in the same room as the bed and desk. A separate walk-in shower and toilet were situated to the right.
A mini-bar included plenty of snacks and drinks for purchase.
I appreciated that the room offered plenty of electrical outlets and no converter was needed at the desk:
The United 747 pictures in the old paint job certainly date this trip report, but note the excellent tarmac views from my room. The windows were nicely sound-proofed, so there were no sleep disturbances.
Although I did not use the gym facilities, a small gym was available. No pool.
Also available: a rooftop bar, lobby restaurant and bar, a Touch&Go Cafe, as well as room service.
If you are traveling to/from the domestic terminal, a free shuttle service is available. Wi-Fi is also free throughout the hotel, though did not work well in my room.
I’d rate this hotel as a solid, four star property that provides an excellent environment to sleep before or between flights. This is not a “vacation” hotel, but it is highly practical.
We spent the previous evening with friends and returned quite late. Tired, we overslept and barely made our flight. As in, with mere moments to spare. Thank goodness all we had to do was literally walk across the street from the hotel to the international terminal. With such an early departure, it would have been a waste to spend another night at the Park Hyatt.
