My family and I spent 2 nights at the Stanton Apartments in October 2012.
They say "first impression are everything". When we first arrived in our three bedroom apartment we weren't quite sure what to expect. By that I mean that some of the walls were in need of a paint job as well as the skirtings. I've read other reviews where comment/s have been made about how tired some of the apartments looked. Well our apartment fell into that category as far as cosmetics went. HOWEVER, the apartment was clean, kitchen was fully contained with a good sized refrigerator, adequate sized meals area and lounge. The only downside to the lounge area was the old analogue TV which only had the five analogue channels (SBS, 2, 7, 9 & 10). The TV's need updating to pick up all of the digital free to air channels. Our bedrooms consisted of a queen sized bed which was actually two king singles together whilst the other two bedrooms contained two singles in each. It comfortably catered for the six of us. The bathroom appears to be the most modernised part of the apartment which was also clean, but it would have been nice to have a second bathroom particularly as I was with five females (wife and daughters).
The Stanton is located on the Southern end of St Kilda Road in Melbourne and trams stops are directly out the front. It is only a short 10 minute tram ride to the arts/CBD precinct. Fitzroy Street St Kilda is a short walk from the apartment block.
The Stanton contains a very small gym (area about 2m x 3m). It also has a solar heated lap pool and a spa (pity all of the jets don't work).
The Stanton's biggest asset is their receptionist - Barbara. As soon as I checked in, she handed me a map of the area and highlighted all the trams that we could take into/out of the city. Her knowledge of the area in general is fantastic. She pointed us in the right direction for places of interest, supermarkets/marts etc. Nothing was too much for Barb who was only too happy to help.
Overall we had a pleasant stay and public transport was easily accessible for a daily trip into/out of the city.
For your viewing, I have attached several photos of the Stanton.
