I just spent four days staying here. Having stayed in the Brisbane Stamford Plaza a few times, I had high expectations; Pros - Very large Queen suite - Next to no outside noise - well thought out layout of the rooms - Very comfortable bed and bedding - Well-stocked kitchenette Cons - On my first night, I had to change rooms as my air-conditioner did not work - This problem happened again on my final night I could not get my room to lower the temperature which led to an uncomfortable sleep. - My first room was immaculate. My second room was a little less but it was very much still liveable. If you’re expecting it to be brand-new it’s not. I actually kind of like that. - I was there over New Year’s and the music from the party that was taking place in the park was extremely loud. It went until 1 am. I understand it’s a hotel and it’s New Year’s Eve but maybe give people a heads up upon check in that there’s going to be a party just in case they’re not staying up late that night. Again, it wasn’t a huge deal. I just had a bath until the party ended but it would’ve been nice to have known in advance. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. While there are some small issues (except the climate control is actually a big issue) I will happily stay there again.

Location and rooms are great ” Fantastic location and the size of the room was allot bigger than most other inner city hotels. The design is a little dated but has a charm about it. We found the breakfast to be very disappointing! Having a 5 star hotel serve tin pineapple was laughable. There was no in house dining for dinner which was frustrating. The reception staff were lovely but all the other staff need to put on a smile and be more friendly to guests. I don’t think this should be a 5 star hotel.
