Like other hotels for the same price, the Sir Stamford was in an excellent location, and the room was comforting and relaxing.
However, if you plan to be picked up by friends, there is little space to stop on the very busy Macquarie St. A small, but annoying incident occurred when a friend had to make a u-turn in the parking lot (due to the lack of stopping/pickup location), only to be faced with a ridiculous parking charge. Other hotels in the past have been understanding (Holiday Inn, Sydney Airport, Gemini Hotel, Randwick eg) however, the management refused to understand the situation.
Left a sour taste for the day.
Conclusion: Good hotel, but there are other hotels in similar locations, that offer the same services (if not better) for the same price, which I will readily take a chance on in my next stay in Sydney.
