So glad we chose to stay at the Sir Stamford in March, 2013. Perfect location beside the Park, one block from the Opera House, Circular Quay restaurants, and the ferries, you can easily walk everywhere. Lovely, quiet, air conditioned rooms and very friendly, helpful staff. If staying several nights, join the Senator's Club and use the discounts vouchers. The continental breakfast is excellent, and dining is discounted for Senator's Club members. The best way to start the morning in Sydney. Highly recommend the Sir Stamford.
