Brisbane Hotels. Hilton or Stamford Plaza?

Hi all,

I am planning a trip to the Gold Coast and Brisbane for December of this year and I wanted to know which hotel would be the better choice between the Hilton and the Stamford Plaza. I have stayed at the Sofitel previously but I wanted to try another hotel this time around. The Stamford is a bit dearer than the Hilton but I am prepared to pay a little more for higher quality. Also if we chose Hilton it would be in one of their deluxe rooms and at Stamford it would be a superior room if that helps. Any feedback on either hotel would be great.

Thanks :)

Stamford is in an excellent location right on the river with outstanding views. It would definately be my choice.

The Stamford has just finished a $10 million makeover as well.

I don't think you can beat the Stamford. While both the Hilton and Stamford have just had refits the Stamford all round feel of luxury appeals to me, as well as one of the best buffet's you will find in Brisbane. Make sure you include breakfast in your booking, it's fantastic.
