Welcome To Your One Stop Meeting Shop.....

Centrally located to take advantage of all that Melbourne offers Rydges on Swanston is the ideal Conference Events & Accommodation venue. A boutique 4.5 star hotel with 107 tastefully decorated suites, along with all the services you require from a 4.5 star hotel, modern innovative styling and generous use of space is evident throughout the hotel. At Rydges on Swanston we will provide you with a 5 star meeting venue along with 5 star service.

Divided into 2 innovative, flexible and modern conference floors we are dedicated to servicing your Conference and Events needs.

The 4th floor is a modern, pillar less, light filled conference and events haven with capacity for over 400 delegates. Our Parkview Lounge has panoramic views over Melbourne’s skyline, the adjacent Lincoln Square Park and opens out onto our Pooldeck Terrace, the perfect location for cocktail parties, lunches and breaks.

The Ground Floor conference and events area offers direct access off Swanston Street and adjoining Blues Bar & Grill. The multifunctional 200 patrons plus Swanston Room and adjoining state of the art boardrooms and lounge area, offers the perfect location for large meetings that require break out areas or for smaller intimate board meetings.

Both levels are flexible in design using bi-fold doors to divide the venue into 2 or 3 functional rooms, catering up to 800 guests over 2 floors including exceptional “break out” areas like the spectacular Parkview Lounge on the 4th floor.
