With all 252 of the hotel’s well-appointed rooms enjoying water views, this is a great spot to enjoy the River City. Yes, it’s tempting to stay in but the buzz coming off the nearby Eagle Street Pier will entice you out (be sure to book ahead for Sake Restaurant & Bar or Aria Restaurant). Early risers can join the morning joggers or yogis in the City Botanic Gardens.
Stamford Plaza neighbours the City Botanic Gardens at the southern end of the CBD. It’s close to the banks of the river and the financial district but is only a short CityCat ride (or 20-minute walk) to South Bank.
