Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport

I thought the hotel and staff were wonderful except it had limited food/coffee options, all of which were expensive. Being by the airport, there were no other options within walking distance except for other hotels. At least the train station to the city was nearby, which was a very good thing indeed. Another bonus was the 'hospitality room' that had a shower - very nice after a 14 hour flight that arrived 6 hours before check-in!

Good for a quick night by the airport

This hotel wasn't anything special, but it was clean and comfortable for a quick night between flights. It's far from downtown.

Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport

Arrived early after a long series of flights from the USA. Check-In was quick and they were kind enough to upgrade me. Very nice place to stay and very convenient to the airport.

Great bargain

Our room gave us a nice view of the airport, yet it was very quite. We walked to Mascot bus stop 1/2 mile away, and used a prepaid 10-ride bus card($15.00) to City Center/Central Station which runs frequently and takes about 20 mintues or so. Tourists also appreciate the free 555 green bus service that runs on George St. and Elizabeth St. in the center of the city. Bakeries and restaurants, even Pizza Hut near the Mascot bus stop.(Mascot train station is more than 15 minutes walk, and there we found nothing such as stores or restaurants)[...]We booked four nights and we went "green" by placing a "Reuse" linen & towels card on a pillow each morning, and got 20% off coupon to use for restaurant and cafe. Right past outside of the hotel entrance, there is a convinence store which is open till 11p.m. We got some milk, meat pies and such.Hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. From previous travelers' comments, we knew there were no free shuttle to/from airport. [...]

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Grayline full-day tours to Blue Mountatins and Canberra were both time saving and money saving by reserving along with hotel booking. The driver/guide for both tours were very knowledgeable and friendly. For the Blue Mountatin tour Grayline gives you pick up/drop off at the hotel.

Stamford Sydney Airport

Clean, spacious room. Adequate service. We arrived early, as all flights from USA arrive before 7 am. At the hotel at 9 am, we were sent to a guest lounge until our regular room was available. There must be a lot of very early arrivals due to plane scheules.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Take a taxi from/to the airport, it is less expensive than the shuttle bus and easier to load. Also, get on/off the train to downtown Sydney at the Mascot station, not the airport station.

what a joke

This hotel has not had comp shuttle bus for over a year. We were billed $12 each way. Hotel very over-rated. Ceiling paint peeling away, table top damaged, wallpaper curling away at seams, carpet stained, wall corner seams needing caulk and paint, towels thin and stained. Very disappointed.

Some good, some not

The staff was efficient but not friendly. The shuttle to the airport was not complimentary, but the $12 for the 2 of us was not bad. The hotel restaurant did not impress us at all - the attendants were great but the food on the buffet was limited for choices and just not very good. The price for what was available was too much in our opinion.

Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport

Shuttle location outside Sydney airport is not very intuitive, but once we found it, transportation met our needs. Accomodations were wonderfully appointed, dining room offerings excellent, and staff was outstanding. A short walk to the Metro station for those who wish to visit the sites.
