An aristocrat's hotel with courteous and helpful staff, I found my stay at the Stamford Circular Quay Sydney very pleasant. The food at the restaurant was at par with what you can expect from regular premium hotels in any city. The decor and ambiance at the receiving area was like at a quiet museum full of paintings of exquisite handiwork.

I stayed at the Sir Stamford Quay Hotel on Boxing day - 26.12.14. It was amazing, the location, staff and particularly the decor of the hotel made it quite exquisite. The staff were helpful and friendly, the food in the restaurant was delicious. The Christmas decorations were tasteful, vibrant and lovely. I would definitely stay at the Sir Stamford again.

We visited the Sir Stamford again as our base for the Sydney Herald Half Marathon. Nothing was too much trouble, late check out, storage of baggage, an earlier breakfast and even better, a room upgrade. I think this hotel will now be our place of choice to stay in Sydney.

Well, you definitely cant beat this hotel for location! Only seconds to Circular Quay and minutes to Pitt St Mall and George Street. Rooms on a higher floor get you away from street noise and you get a better view. Service was a bit 'meh' but you get that. However, my housekeeping lady was just adorable. Room quality was okay...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
