Location, Location, Location - Rydges Plaza has the best in town!

Centrally located in the heart of the city, Rydges Plaza Cairns accommodation is one of the closest hotels to the Cairns Convention Centre and within easy walking distance to the Reef Casino, Great Barrier Reef departure terminals, Esplanade Lagoon, Foreshore Promenade and Cairns Central shopping complex.  Cairns City Cinemas are only a short stroll from this Cairns accommodation with all of the latest movie releases.  This is truly the most centrally located accommodation in Cairns.

While you are here, be sure to try RISE, our new breakfast concept. RISE is all about starting the day well.  It is based on the market fresh approach to what many guests, and nutritionists, agree to be the most important meal of the day.  As such, our Cairns accommodation has developed a menu that integrates freshly squeezed juice shots, smoothies and parfaits with a selection of hot dishes, eggs and omelets made to order, homemade baked breads, pastries and breakfast muffins, as well as healthy choice cereals, yoghurt and fruit.

Rydges Plaza Cairns features two conference rooms on level 3 of the Cairns accommodation that are connected with bi-folding doors to cater for up to 250 guests.  Conference facilities also include our Executive Boardroom located on the ground level accommodating up to 10 guests.

We now accept Union Pay.
