Hip downtown décor extends to rooftop swimming pool

Rydges Plaza Cairns' rooftop pool is a cool scene during the day. Things really heat up at night when the pool glows with lights. The hotel has a youthful feel to it but it is, by no means, just for the young and single. The Rydges chain's legendary level of service helps make all hotel guests feel as though they are at home. The on-site restaurant, Lilo, serves a full breakfast buffet. The dinner menu fuses Asian, Italian, and Australian cuisines. Outdoor poolside dining is available.

Highlights
  • Modern décor with a downtown feel
  • Rooftop pool lit for the night swimming
  • Lilo restaurant marries Asian, Italian, and Australian cusines
  • Rydges Dream Beds in every room
Rooms

Recent upgrades to Rydges Plaza Cairns' 101 rooms and suites included the addition of the hotel chain's signature ultra-plush Rydges Dream Beds. Contemporary décor with more of a youthful, downtown vibe than many Cairns' lodgings. Amenities include high-speed wired or wireless Internet access and 32-inch flat-screen televisions. Some rooms have balconies. Several bed configurations available with queen, single, and sofa beds.

Features

Lilo restaurant, serving a fusion of Asian, Italian, and Australian, offers indoor and outdoor seating options. Private cabanas are available. The restaurant's bar, Lilo Wet Bar, is decorated in dark woods and bold patterns and provides hotel guests and Cairns locals with an attractive setting for a date.

 

Function areas fit up to 160 guests in banquet-style seating -- great for a destination wedding. Lilo's tropical terrace gardens are perfect for a cocktail party reception of up to 200 guests.

 

Guests receive complimentary access to an off-site health club. Other amenities include laundry facilities and airport transfers.

2 night stay was OK

Our 2 night stay was planned only at very last minute. Location of hotel was great but in general felt that the hotel is due for refurbishment if it is to retain it's 4 star rating. We felt we got value for the money we spent

We stayed for 5 nights, nice sized room, comfy bed. Feels slightly dated the hotel, but staff were helpful and its location was great for us.

Great location, had to change rooms

When we got to the hotel, the room we were given was very dirty and old. We asked for a room change and were obliged for a room change the next day.
