About Stamford Plaza

There aren’t many Brisbane hotel venues that sit along the Brisbane river which have uninterrupted views of the story bridge, which is why the Stamford Plaza Brisbane is popular amongst VIPs such as Lady Gaga and US President Barack Obama.

This iconic building embodies luxury and style and is home to some of the world’s most famous celebrities and guest actors. There is the stunning Stamford Suite, which has been home to some of the world’s biggest stars, with picture frames on display in the elevator.

Popular for weddings due to the venue’s refined architectural design and elegant staircase and the neighbouring City Botanic Gardens and the Brisbane River – plenty of choices of amazing photo backdrops.

The Stamford Plaza has a range of venue spaces including their Garden Marque which offers uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge making it a great event space.
