    Rydges Melbourne Hotel, Melbourne, Australia
    Great spot. Pity about other factors
    Parking system is terrible - multiple times had to get ticket renewed, for every exit - and line up to do so. Not great for business meetings. No coffee in the morning - twice due to machine being broken. There was another machine in another area of the building - staff could have got coffees from there..
