Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We have stayed here a couple if times now, and after coming back from overseas, I was unimpressed. Having to pay for the internet and for movies is what makes this review unfavourable for the Stamford plaza. Apart from that, great view and location, clean, tidy and great amenities.

Great location and finely appointed hotel with a good pool and small gym. Our room had lovely bridge and river view.

It's a 4 star hotel with acceptable service.

I.didnt research so cannot compare but thought parking was expensive at $40 per day or $45 valet parking. And note that the valet staff don't immediately give the option to self park.

We stayed at the hotel as part of a once in the lifetime trip for a very special birthday. This was the only hotel from the trip not to acknowledge it. Wasn't expecting much, a happy birthday would have been nice

Dear gster1977,

Firstly, although somewhat belated, I would like to wish you a happy birthday. I was disappointed to read this was not recognised during your stay with us as we do always enjoy helping guests celebrate special occasions. I note your comments regarding the price of parking. Whilst this price may seem high, it is in line, if not cheaper than most other 5 star hotels within the centre of Brisbane City. I do note you were not offered to self park immediately and I do apologise for this. Please be assured our Front Office Manager is following this up with the team.

Thank you for taking the time to bring the above to our attention and I hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Australia.

Kind Regards,

Philippe

For a business trip I went to Brisbane. Although the office is not directly in the centre, it is nice to have a walkaround through the city center in the evening and weekend. My room, with view over the river, was very comfortable. As I am tall one criteria is very important to me: is the bed big enough? The bed in my room was big enough resulting in a good sleep!
Internet speed is reasonable, although streaming TV to The Netherlands is usually not possible in the evening. There is a swimmingpool, but I have not used that. I have only used the restaurant for breakfast. Variety is good enough, I think there is something available for everyone.

I liked my stay in the Stamford hotel and would go there again, without doubt.

My wife and I are from NZ and self drive in Australia for about two months each year never staying any longer than a few days anywhere. We stay in all sorts of establishments ranging from the cheapest motels to the most expensive hotels. We stayed in a junior suite at the Stamford for three nights which is our first stay at this hotel. We have stayed at many of the world's top hotels in Asia, North America and Europe over the past thirty years and can honestly say that this particular hotel is one of the best that we have encountered for....., value for money, concierge, service, position, cleanliness comfort, food...the list goes on. We anticipate travel to Brisbane quite a bit in the future and will always use this hotel before any others.

How can you knock elegance? The Stamford is now a must stay for me, your entry to the hotel is excellent and a porter comes to you and takes your luggage for you while you go check in. The reception is professional and efficient.
The room, is beautiful, our room (1704) overlooked the Brisbane river and the room just oozes charm, taste and qulaity.
Stay here, you won't be disappointed
