This luxury hotel on the Brisbane River sits just minutes away from some of the city's best shopping and sightseeing attractions. The property meets the needs of business travelers or those who want to hide away and relax.

On-site amenities include an elegant heated outdoor pool, several dining options, and luxurious guest rooms.

Rooms

The hotel's 252 spacious rooms and suites feature traditional furniture and rich textiles. Most rooms offer substantial room for working or sitting areas for relaxing. Bathrooms -- many in marble -- may include televisions and separate bathtubs and showers. All rooms have views of the river or other city sights. Wireless Internet access is available in all rooms. Extra amenities in suites range from gourmet cookies and French press coffeemakers to the Stamford Suite's baby grand piano.

Property features

The hotel's dining options suit guests who want culinary diversity. Kabuki and its lunchtime sushi counter, Kabuki 2 Go, focus on Japanese specialties. Brasserie on the River serves a seafood buffet and high tea, either inside or on a patio overlooking the water. Moo Moo The Wine Bar + Grill puts a modern spin on the traditional steak house. The Pav Bar serves drinks, steaks, salads, and more.

Great Stay

We have previously used the Stamford Plaza in Brisbane and were looking forward to our return. Again, we were not disappointed. Check in was quick, easy and most friendly. The concierge staff were helpful and had our luggage to our room in no time at all. The room was as expected with a lovely night view over the river to the Story Bridge. The beds and pillows are comfortable and we certainly enjoyed a good nights sleep each night. Our only disappointment in the cost of breakfast at this hotel. While we only needed something small each morning the cost is very high. Given the location is so close to the Queen Street Mall and the river cafes we were not without good alternatives to meet our need. We did enjoy complimentary drinks at the Pav Bar each evening ... Thank you Stamford! The staff were friendly, attentive and we were most happy. The ambience is lovely. We will return to the Stamford Plaza in the future, it's our home away from home when in Brisbane.

The best of what's in Brisbane

Brisbane lacks enough hotels to cater for visitors and as such prices for Brisbane hotels can be expensive. This icon of a hotel in Brisbane is a staple and very good.

Stamford Brisbane

There was no hot water one morning and the staff were rude. I had to speak with the manager who explained that they were doing work on the hot water and something had gone wrong. Their nonchalant manner was infuriating. On the positive side, the room was awesome. great view. We got lots of free drink vouchers upon arrival.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Good food is a while away. Don't bother eating at their japanese restaurant Kabuki. It is really overpriced and not authentic. There are loads of nicer restaurants along the river near the hotel or at South Bank.

Elegant and Comfortable

We spent 3 nights at the Stamford Plaza at the end of a two week Australian vacation. The hotel was very elegant, yet comfortable and a very reasonable price. We had a nice view of the river from our room. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of the main shopping area and public transportation. The riverwalk and botanic gardens are literally right outside the door. Hotel staff were polite and helpful.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Many of the restaurants and cafes in the immediate area of the hotel cater to the business crowd and close by late afternoon. There is a nice Italian pizza and pasta restaurant across the street from the hotel and one block up that has reasonable prices, good food and friendly service and is also open later in the evening.

Classic Elegance

In spite of the hotel's five-star rating, the staff is without pretention and entirely approachable. If the rooms had free wifi, the hotel, which has a central location and excellent views of the river, would be perfect.

Walk to Central Station and take the train to the late Steve Irwin's Australio Zoo. It makes a wonderful day trip.

Very restful.

Enjoyed stay at the Stamford. Did not expect charges for parking. Cost $10.00 per night. We got attention when we entered Hotel but no one gave attention for parking when we left. Cost was $40.00 Valet service.

excellent business hotel

They were always friendly and helpful. Sadly the pool was closed when we were there. Nice closeness for "city cat" transportation along the river.

Nice places to eat along the river very close to the hotel. Try "Jellyfish" ... a good seafood restaurant.
