I stayed that the Stamford Plaza as I had an early flight out of Sydney. The hotel is comfortable with a luxury feel especially in the bar and dining areas. It is also very close to Sydney airport, no more than 500 metres to the Qantas terminal and so you would wonder why they charge guests (who are already paying $200+ a room), around $12 for a return fare to the airport. I also was a little unlucky to be there on Valentine's night without my love, and the restaurant was restricted to those who were willing to pay for the Valentine's banquet meal at $80 a head. The bar was offering only stoggy food and there nearest restaurants are some distance 2-3km from the hotel.
I also missed the early morning shuttle thanks to a guest pushing in front of me to pay his shuttle bus fare, as I queued to pay my hotel bill at 5.55am! I had also hoped to catch that same bus, but... thanks to being pushed to second in line, missed the bus (the interloper made it)... not well handled at all by the front of desk staff. Oh well, got my $6 returned but the walk was a little bit of struggle with heavy luggage! The internet is, as always in Australia, obscenely expensive and a little irritating in a luxury hotel.
For convenience this place is great but it is not the best value for money. Stay there if you have an early morning flight and leave at least 15 minutes to check out if you want to avoid a walk!
