Opening in 2013 as part of the new International Airport precinct. Rydges Sydney Airport offers business and leisure travellers greater choice, convenience and comfort.

Developed at a cost of $70million, Rydges Sydney Airport is unlike most Sydney Airport hotels and, indeed, unlike most people's impression of an 'airport hotel'. While this new 4.5 Star Rydges hotel is right at the international terminal, it is much more than being about location, location, location - it is an important part of your journey, not just a place to stay before or after a flight. With an excellent restaurant & bar, gymnasium, broadband, WiFi and 318 well-appointed rooms and suites (all with the famous Rydges Dream Beds), the hotel is a much welcome addition to the Sydney airport precinct.

The Sydney Airport embraces Rydges fresh, customer-focussed culture and offers value for money, friendly service, genuine hospitality and exciting food and beverage experiences.

Perfect location, short walk after clearing International customs. Next morning a short walk across the street to domestic departures. Breakfast buffet first class.

A few bumps in an otherwise good experience

We spent one night at the Rydges hotel between flights from western Australia to Sydney to LAX. The transportation from the domestic terminal to the hotel was just as described and as scheduled. It was much appreciated.The hotel is very modern in style and decoration. The high ceilings and glass make the lobby noisy. The business computer area in the lobby needs more lighting in the evening.The room was spacious and comfortable. All was well until shortly before 400 am when a loud, Emergency, Evacuate Now, alarm was _sounded. We joined all the other guests, funneling our way down to street level from the 7th floor fire escape stairway. From the time we arrived at street level, watching the fire truck arrive and depart, there was no effort on the part of staff to communicate anything. After about an hour, guests were beginning to line up to use the elevators to return to their rooms. Still no communication. We asked a staff member for an update and were told it was a false alarm . The next morning the front desk person told us someone had been smoking in a room, setting off the alarm. We thought it strange that someone smoking in a room would cause an entire hotel to evacuate. Our daughter who works in the hopitality business could not believe that the hotel offered no amenity for the experience we had. The next bump was our disppointment that the hotel restaurant offered two choices, a continental breakfast @ 17.00 or a full hot breakfast buffet @24.00. It is not possible to order off a menu. We learned later we could get coffee and a pastry in the lobby deli. I would consider this hotel for its great location. You can walk across the street to the international terminal.

Great airport hotel

This hotel is in a perfect location if you are flying from the International terminal at Sydney airport. Nice, clean rooms, very quiet in spite of overlooking the runways at the airport. Just a short walk to departures. Highly recommended.

Layover delight

The hotel itself was a 2 min. walk to the international terminal and very quite. The hotel itself was quite nice and lovely. My negative about the room is simple; I'm all for open concept except for when it leaves the toilet exposed to the bedroom. Now I don't mean visible, it was a glass stall door style that was obstructed by divider wall and nothing else. So it is very easy to hear everything your partner does while you are in the bed. A positive note, the $6 for 2 bottles of water in the room is less than the nearby venues, so drink them instead of buying some outside of the hotel if your thirsty.

The Bottle Water in this airport hotel is less than that sold in the airport or vending machines. Also the hotel is only a 2 min walk, with luggage, to the international arrival and departure terminals, so no Cab's

Perfect location

This hotel is conveniently located across the road from the arrivals hall with awesome airport views. Check in was busy but efficient. Rooms were great but no privacy for shower/bathroom. Limited free wifi in the room. This needs to improve. Would stay again.
