“Fantastic location, refurbished suites, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

My husband, my teenage daughter and I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite (room 1311) at the Stamford plaza and loved it. The two bedroom is great value because for the price of some hotel rooms in this locale, you get a beautifully furnished suite with kitchen, living room, dining table for four, two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The suite is exactly as hotel photos show with it seems new couch, curtains, lamps and bedheads. The suite is cosy & would not suit any more than 3 adults, or 2 adults & 2 small children. There is a full sized fridge, small dishwasher, stovetop & microwave in the kitchen. There is a large LCD tv (seems new) in the living room & a smaller one in each bedroom.

The Stamford plaza itself is an older hotel with two towers. The lobby & bar are probably due for an update but the service (including doormen) is still 5 star. The location is fabulous & one of the main selling points of the hotel. It is in the Paris end of little Collins street and within walking distance of Italian cafe Pelligrinis, a local institution. The hotel is also close to the new citadines apartment hotel, grand hyatt & the Westin. The Paris end of little Collins street is definitely the place to stay in Melbourne CBd. It is also good because being a "little street" as opposed to the main Collins street it is one way, with no tramlines so it is quiet. For ease of transport you need only walk through the hotel's passageway to reach the next main street and catch a tram easily.

My husband and I also stayed In a 1 bedroom suite after our daughter left. It was located on the forth floor in the other tower. This room was just as good, with the same furnishings & a full kitchen, dining & living room.

I would definitely recommend this hotel, particularly the two bedroom suite if you prefer the finer things in life rather than a basic apartment hotel which are similarly priced. It is great value in an expensive city.

The Stamford Melbourne is a fantastic all suite hotel, located in Little Collins Street. There are two towers to the hotel and we were located in the same one as the Bar. A lane takes you from between the towers onto Collins Street and right into the Theatre area. It was an easy downhill walk to the main part of Collins Street and all the shops. Having stayed in Melbourne quite a few times we found the hotel hidden away (this can be a good thing) and quiet over the weekend. We stayed Sunday night and checked out on Monday. There were plenty of options to have a breakfast (eat in and take away) in the area as there are lots of offices around it with workers eager for a hit of caffeine. The rooms were very well furnished and spacious. Amenities in the room were more than we expected. The tower we were in had a huge atrium and our room had a balcony leading into the atrium. We didn't make use of it as Melbourne was quite chilly that day. We booked via a secret deal online and therefore didn't choose the hotel, but would definitely choose it again, given the right deal.

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.
