Our CBD Melbourne accommodation options put guests in the heart of Melbourne culture, sports and shopping

Rydges Melbourne sits in the heart of the city’s vibrant theatre district and is close to a number of sports venues including Melbourne Cricket Ground (the MCG), Etihad Stadium, Rod Laver Arena and Melbourne Park. Our CBD Melbourne hotel is near Chinatown as well as exclusive Collins Street boutiques and world-famous Bourke Street Mall for Melbourne shopping.

Catching public transportation from our CBD Melbourne hotel is easy, with a bus stop right on Exhibition Street, Parliament Railway Station one block away on Spring Street and a tram stop on Bourke Street just 50 meters away. Our prompt and courteous concierges can help you catch a taxi right in front of the hotel and will accommodate any of your public transportation needs by providing useful and timely information.
