Stayed at Rydges Plaza one night for business. It was central to the CBD, and only 15 mins to/from the airport. You can tell the building is old, but everything was clean and maintained. It was everything I would expect from a Rydges.

We stayed here for one night while on our way to Palm Cove and I’m glad we weren’t staying any longer. The whole hotel smells damp and our room (811) smelt terrible and had spots of mould all over the ceiling which is terrible for your health. One of the main reasons we stayed

Are you able to smoke on the balcony?
I don't think it's allowed. I believe there's a no smoking policy with a penalty for smoking that applies.

"Ask to be on a high level"
"Don’t get room over the pool area, ensure you don’t back onto bar."
"Requires renervation, location good"
"Higher floors can cause delays in the lift getting up and down. I used the fire stairs for descent and exercise."
"Check room before agreeing to stay. Try not to stay near the pool as it can be loud on weekends"
