An outdoor lap pool, gym and sauna are all highlights at this smart hotel located near Sydney Airport’s domestic terminal. Enjoy a delectable Argentinian-style dinner at the recently-opened La Boca Bar and Grill. Weary travellers will love the hotel’s extra touches like round-the-clock room service and late checkout on request. Just 15 minutes’ drive from the CBD, the Stamford Plaza is a good business base and offers all-inclusive packages for your next meeting or conference.

Sydney Airport is located in the suburb of Mascot, just eight kilometres from the CBD. Trains operate from both the international and domestic terminals direct to Central Station. Nearby suburbs of Alexandria and Rosebery boast a thriving food scene; much-loved hotspots, such as The Grounds, Kitchen by Mike and Black Star Pastry, are always crammed with hungry patrons. Design aficionados should make a point to visit Koskela and Jardan – both feature Australian-made homewares and furniture.
