Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel, a Perfect Accommodation for an Early Flight in Sydney
After a day and night of exploring Sydney and watching some light shows during the Vivid Festival, we left the city and headed to our hotel for a night. Because we had to catch a morning flight the next day, my friend and I decided to stay near the airport. Looking at the several hotels that are close to the airport, I then got curious about Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel. I always see this hotel when I go out from the airport terminal in Sydney since it is literally just next to it. So when there’s a need for me to stay in an airport hotel, I picked this hotel.

It is located at the international terminal and the only hotel within the Sydney Airport precinct. With a strategic location, it offers convenient access to both domestic and international terminals. The city is also just 13 minutes away from the hotel via airport train link.
It was already late evening when my friend and I arrived at Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel. When we arrived, we approached the front desk and the staff warmly greeted us. Then, we presented our passports for our check in. Afterwards, the receptionist handed to us the keycard to our room. Tired and sleepy, I was glad that we were able to check in quickly and our room was already prepared and available for us.

Our room was a Deluxe Airport View King Room. The room is air-conditioned and looks very clean. It features a king sized Rydges Dream Bed, an open plan bathroom with a separate shower, a work desk and a seating area. Other facilities inside the room also include TV, minibar, ironing facilities, electronic in-room safe, hair dryer and tea and coffee-making facilities. Our room was also facing the airport providing us a sweeping view of the runway and the international terminal.
The hotel provided us a complimentary bottle of wine. It could have been a perfect night-cap plane spotting while drinking wine. But sadly, it was already midnight when we came. I was dead-tired already that I all I wanted to do was to lay down to my bed and have my much-needed rest.
Our room at Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel has everything we needed to have a relaxed night before our early morning flight the next day. The room was huge and felt very comfortable.

I would have wanted to stay longer and enjoy the hotel even more.
