Most often when I travel to Sydney, I stay at a Stamford, from the one in Double Bay (now reincarnated as an Intercontinental) and the other at Circular Quay. First impressions are charm, antiques, warm fire glowing, helpful staff, huge rooms, and great location. Opposite the Botanical Gardens, the Sir Stamford offers access to numerous attractions in the area, from... More

We recently took in the Romance package at the Sir Stamford, and it was absolutely fantastic. The check-in process was easy and efficient, the room was gorgeous, and our view was beyond spectacular. We were greeted with cold champagne, delicious snacks, and the candlelight and flower petals everywhere were charming and sweet. The extra touches made our anniversary celebration that... More

This is a beautiful boutique hotel nestled near the Sydney Opera House and the Botanical Gardens and walking distance to the Rocks and Quay Bus, Train and Ferry locations. It still has the grand old world elegance of a small hotel with all the amenities. We stayed for 5 nights and felt were were close to everything. If you are... More

A very smart old style hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are lovely as is the interior of the hotel. The position is excellent opposite the botanical gardens with Circular Quay only 50 yds. away. Breakfast is very good, with a good choice. The staff are very helpful. Wifi has to be paid for which these days is bad.

My lovely lady and I spent three nights here in November, this is our 14th visit and frankly we would not go anywhere else as everything we need is here.

As a frequent visitor to Sydney, I usually stick to one hotel a little further down the road but have recently been trying out other hotels in the area. As a frequent visitor to the Stamford Plaza Brisbane and a Senator's Club member I was sorely disappointed when visiting this hotel. While not to be too harsh, as it is... More

My best friend and I stayed here over the weekend and booked the Celebration package. It was nothing short of amazing. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly, everyone who works there just treats you like an equal and don't look down on us in our shorts and t-shirts as guests surely did unfortunately.
