My wife, 4 month old daughter and myself stayed at the Stamford Plaza for one night in late September in order to catch an early domestic flight the next morning. For that purpose the hotel was perfect, as it was an easy 15 minute walk with suitcases to Terminal 2 (it would be faster if you were going to Terminal 3). There is a shuttle available, but at $6 per person we thought that walking was the better option.
Parking in the hotel car park was quick and easy, albeit a little confusing regarding the rules when parking behind and subsequently blocking another cars exit. Check in was also efficient with a friendly front desk person.
The room itself was clean with comfortable beds and most importantly a cot which we specified when we booked online. The bathroom was also clean with good water pressure in the shower with plenty of fresh towels available, which was handy when our daughter was sick in the morning and we quickly had to wash her and change her clothes. We couldn't hear much aircraft or traffic noise during the night and we all slept quite well.
One thing that surprised us was the closing time of the bar downstairs, which for an airport hotel was an early 10pm on the night we were there. We opted out of having the breakfast in the morning, which at $28 was rather expensive for what was on offer, and grabbed a quick meal at the airport instead.
Next time we have an early morning flight we would consider staying at the Stamford again primarily due to its location and cleanliness.
