Perfect choice for Sydney airport

We just wanted an overnight hotel for our morning flight from Sydney to New York and the Stamford Plaza worked out perfectly. The shuttle service was very fast and all the hotel staff were courteous and very professional, helpful too. The room was everything we wanted and more! I used the Internet and it cost AUD5 for 30 minutes, very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be near Sydney airport and though the shuttle costs $6 per person, it was well worth it.

Excelent hotel and location

We found everything in the hotel great. Prior to reservation, I read the reviews and I was aware of the inaccurate advertisement regarding "complimentary bus shuttles to and from the hotel", so we avoided the hassle by going comfortably by taxi for about $10.00 dollars a trip.

AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE IS A JOKE !

The hotel itself lives up to expectations BUT as I chose it for its airport location ( had another flight the next morning ) I was more than disappointed in the advertised airport shuttle service. Having landed after a 14 hour flight from Abu Dhabi to Sydney I quickly realised the Sydney Airport is still one of the worst organised in the world BUT the hotel shuttle service is worse yet: NO indication on where the shuttle is located, no one at the information desk gave any vaiid information, after a full hour of trying to locate a shuttle departure point one finally settles for a taxi and spends 20 Australian Dollars to get to the hotel ! Staff there simply says "yes we know it is not easy but there is just nothing we can do !" For returning to the airport the next day I was charged 6 A$ for a so called FREE SHUTTLE... a charge I got cancelled as I complained about the arrival experience and the 20 Dollar taxi fare... this was done by a reduction in the Internet Connection Fee, which itself is outrageous ( 55 cents a minute to use one's own computer and no WIFI in the hotel ) Australia in the Internet field still is milking travellers. But hotel staff, probably aware of customer dissatisfaction with this state of affairs is willing to make adjustments. Hotel clean, confortable, pleasant on all levels... Just do not forget ANYTHING in your room as the cleaning sta&ff will NEVER find it . I left two men's cologne bottles behind (value 150 US DOLLARS ) which of course were never found by the cleaning staff !!! Hope they enjoy their "no finds" !!!

Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport

I enjoyed a very restful night in a wonderful bed. This was exactly what I needed after 10 days of road travel and before a 14 hour international flight the following day. All staff I encountered were extremely helpful and the shuttle driver was exceptionally heldful in advising me about getting around the city in the limited time I had. My only question was regarding the "complimentary" shuttle. I boarded the shuttle at the airport when I arrived and only signed for the trip. At checkout, I was charged $12 AUD for the shuttle service.
