This great news came days after Sydney Airport made the decision to close their popular observation deck (also known as the "Esky Bar") in the International terminal.
The Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel is located near the International terminal, and as these photos - captured by Sydney plane spotter Bernie P, and shared by the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel - show, the views over the International terminal parking aprons and further to the Domestic terminal, are similar to that from the closed Observation Deck.
When able, the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel opens its rooftop area to the public daily at an admission cost of $10 per person, which includes a beverage from their Touch & Go Cafe. A Family Pass is also available for 2 Adults & 2 Children for only $30. Spotters will also receive a Plane Spotter Information sheet along with a key card from reception that will allow access to the rooftop.
The 318-room Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel also has "Plane Spotter" accommodation packages that include great views from your room at the Hotel.
