The best hotel I have ever stayed in. Gorgeous and classy with wonderful accommodating staff.
So close to all the main attractions (literally a block walk from the Opera House and Circular Quay).
I traveled with a young child who also loved it, especially the pool which was perfect for leasure at only 1m depth. Great for watching her swim without being to stressed about her in their alone.
Such great value for money also. I will definitely never stay anywhere else again when in Sydney.

We originally looked at all the corporate brand hotels in Sydney, but found this on TripAdvisor and decided to try it based on the ratings and reviews. The location was absolutely perfect for us.

We arrived on a long flight to Sydney from the U.S. and it was before check-in time, so we figured we might have to wait. They told us the room wasn't ready yet, but the front desk was very nice and we mentioned that it was our honeymoon so they said they would get the room ready as soon as possible. We hopped on a ferry over to Manly Beach for a few hours and came back to a surprise upgrade to a massive suite with 2 bathrooms and a doorbell in case you don't hear a knock on the door from the other room!

It was a nice surprise, and all of the staff made us feel very welcome. As I mentioned, the location was really ideal because we could walk right down to the pier and the Opera House. We had dinner reservations at Aria Restaurant which is also right there on MacQuarie St, so it was really convenient. We also walked around the Royal Botanic Gardens.

The only time we really needed to take a cab was when we wanted to go to Surry Hills to check out some restaurants there.

Overall, this hotel is way better than any downtown, and we got a much better deal than paying for one of the corporate hotels in the same area.

We arrived inthe early morning after an all-night flight. The staff allowed us the use of the gym to shower and change and stored our bags until a room was available after checkouts. The hotel is one block from the circular quay, the heart of the city, and a cafe (City Express) serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner 24 hours a day - perfect for the jet lagged. The location is as close as possible to the Opera House and Botanical Gardens as well, and an easy walk to the Rocks area of the city. The ferry will take you to the zoo and to the aquarium. We also walked to museums and other restaurants, never having to use a taxi or train. Even better than the location, which could not be beat, was the service. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful.

We found this hotel to be very plush and luxurious. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and the staff exceptional. It was very clean and the furnishings were gorgeous. The room was also quiet and the bathroom was really lovely.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quality establishment with staff that actually care about their guests needs.

I stayed at the Sir Stamford in May of 2009 for my last few days before returning to the states. I checked in at around 8p.m. and was immediately taken care of, concierge even went to the pharmacy and filled a prescription for me.

Even if I hadn't been a student and spent most of my travel time in Hostels/backpacking I am use to nice hotels and have stayed in many throughout the world, this ranks high amongst them.

in addition to providing excellent ideas for things close by while it was raining. I have been to Sydney many times and Sir Stamford is simply one of the best hotels in Sydney.
