“Loved every part of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

This hotel is amazing I believe they have just finished their refurbishment and the rooms are excellent, loved the large LCD TV's and our room had a full kitchen. If you want to cook in your room you need to call and ask for a cooking kit.

The restaurant was great really good service and interesting menu, even though the bar was busy we got great service.

Checkin was quick and efficent bags were delivered before we got to our room which was always a nice touch. On check out our car took about 15 min to come up but least the staff let you know (other places I have stayed at they just leaving you waiting).

Overall a great experience all staff were friendly and look that they enjoyed their job.

Will definaltey be back without the baby.........

The Stamford Plaza Hotel, is an ideal business hotel located in the CBD. The rooms are comfortable and very typical of what a business hotel would like like internationally. The beds are comfortable, bathrooms spacious and the living area comfortable. The room service was efficient and the food good. The breakfast was quite simple overall, but had all the usual items, such as eggs, fruits and croissants....all the things you would need to start the day. The gym is quite small, so I would recommend going for a run around The Botanical Gardens instead.

I checked in on a Sunday. Checking in on a Sunday at around midday is not ideal, as you will find quite a few couples and party groups who have stayed over for the weekend checking out, whilst you are checking in....and this can take ages.

Overall, I would recommend the hotel!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for putting your comments on Trip Advisor. Yes I agree, checking in at midday is a busy time, I would suggest checking in after 2.00 pm. We look forward to welcoming you back to Stamford Plaza Melbourne very soon.

Stayed here over the June long weekend. Suite was clean, quiet and reasonably spacious.
Well located to walk just about anywhere in the CBD. The restaurant was disappointing with very limited menu choice. The staff were friendly and apologetic about the one hour wait for our main course but we felt that management had not made appropriate staffing arrangements for what appeared to be a very busy period at the hotel. There are enough excellent restaurants in the vicinity, however, not to put anyone off choosing to stay here on that basis.

This hotel was a second choice for us as our first hotel ended up being not what we had expected. The hotel over all was very clean and in a great location. The staff and service was more than fantastic and even threw in a free movie.

We stayed at the Stamford using one of their winter offers which was an excellent value. The location of the hotel is in one of Melbourne's best shopping lanes and also close to the various theatres and public transport. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. You know there is a BUT coming - the bed was not that comfortable and the robes that were provided were so worn and tired I would have used them for cleaning rags. I told the front desk clerk and was told the robes would be replaced - if they were it was their identical twins! The hotel was having trouble with one of the lifts, and whilst that is not a service / hotel / amenities problem - it was a challenge since there are only two lifts. On Sunday it was a challenge during checkout.
All in all the hotel was good but I think in need of a refit.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor room

Had a one night stay, a weeknight special deal, which included breakfast, and a voucher for parking or percentage off meal/drinks in the restaurant. The room was great, just what you'd expect from the Stamford, and the breakfast was more than expected, however, don't bother with the restaurant for an evening meal. The selection was very poor, the food was average, and the service was terrible. Once we were seated, order taken, food and wine arrived, then they seemed to forget that we were even there! Had to pour our own wine, and didn't get offered dessert or coffee. We waited half an hour after finishing the meal, to enjoy the wine, but at no stage did we get service, our plates stayed in front of us, so we decided to head back to our room for coffee. With a fantastic food culture like Melbourne, the hotel should be able to do better than this.
