Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel
Rydges Sydney Airport has been nominated in the category Australasia’s Leading Airport Hotel at the 2014 World Travel Awards. These awards are to the travel industry as the Oscars are to the movie industry and we are mighty chuffed at receiving this recognition, being a relative newcomer on the block.
Airport hotels are a little different to other business and leisure hotels. We don’t get as many long stay guests as other hotels for a start – many stay with us for the convenience of being fresh and on-site to catch a flight or to relax and unwind as soon as they clear customs and leave the airport. Our guests want a friendly but speedy welcome if they are tired on check-in and a friendly but speedy checkout if they have a plane to catch.
Our wedding receptions are different, too - in other venues the bride and groom usually leave first - with us the guests can leave and the couple stay on to be on the doorstep for their honeymoon flight.
Apart from that, we are similar to other establishments in that guests want a comfy bed, in-room entertainment, a good bar, a good restaurant and value for money – but we probably get more repeat business travellers and celebrities than other hotels and we definitely get more plane spotters!
