“Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

The staff were wonderfull and extreamly friendly without knowing we were on our honeymoon and the room was Amazing! We stayed in a king spa suite and the bed was so good i wanted to take it home. The room was extreamly comfortable and very well stocked with everything we could possibly need. I highly recomend this hotel to everyone :)

This has been our hotel of choice for stays in Melbourne for a long time, but this was our first stay since having a baby. The rooms are perfect for stays of more than one night (with plenty of room for the supplied portacot) with space to relax, not just to sleep. The recent upgrade has been well done, without being over the top. The foyer was still being refurbished while we were there, but the detours and minor inconveniences were handled well. All the staff we encountered were warmly welcoming, quick to respond to any needs or requests and it really did feel like a home away from home.

Dear DFPDM

Congratulations to you on the new addition to your family! It’s not always easy travelling with a baby, and having the facility of an in-room kitchenette and the extra space our suites offer I’m sure will have made certain things more manageable. This is very much a family friendly hotel and I hope we can continue to have an enduring relationship with your family as the years go by. We look forward to seeing you soon and I’d be really interested to hear your opinion on the new lobby since you will have a before and after perspective.

Kind regards

We stayed at the stamford plaza over the queens birthday long weekend. The ground floor is currently being renovated but the signage to the reception is good. The lifts and atrium are great (very fast lifts) we stayed in a studio room on level 8 which included a small lounge room and kitchenette queen size bed and bathroom with a spa, the room was clean, spacious and comfortable the air conditioning worked well. The only negatives were that the rooms were very noisy at night from the street noise and there were a lot of light switches in the room which made it confusing!

The location is good it is about a 10min walk to flinders street station, it's located close to shops and cafes, a bit far from tram stops though. Overall we were happy with our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Dear alan0056

You chose a good weekend to escape Sydney, I hear the weather was horrific there over Queen’s Birthday! I’m glad you had an enjoyable mini break with us here in Melbourne and managed to get out and about and sample some of the amazing precincts of the city. Our new lobby and reception area will be completed by the end of the month, ending phase 2 of the hotel’s overall refurbishment. Phase one was the refurbishment of all 283 suites in the hotel, having both these important areas refreshed is of great impact to the hotel and as such we are very excited.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon to check it all out!

Kind regards

We stayed one night and had a romance package, it was fantastic. From the moment we arrived and were shown around the renovations (finished by end of July) to reception staff and room service every-one was lovely. The romanace package was exactly what is advertised and my partners face when he opened the door was worth the little extra money.

Our room was very nicely decorated, clean and I love the little kitchen area and mugs (instead of little cups) for coffee!! Great location for restaurants and shows

We will be back, Thank you

Dear Jenisonholiday

Another successful Romance and Seduction Package pulled off! Thank you to the dedicated staff at Stamford Plaza Melbourne for making our packages perfect for guest like you who are going the extra mile for a wow experience. Great too that when you return you will be able to see our brand new lobby. Having that before and after perspective will no doubt make it even more impressive for you to see the end result. Just a little note to say the lobby will be completed at the end of June not end of July.

We can’t wait to have you stay again soon.

Kind regards

Front desk have the attitude of we are here to make money not friends. This is the way they treat corporate customers. The rooms are OK but half of them are quite noisy due to the early morning dumpster collections and night club pedestrian traffic. I would not recommend this place, when there are so many closeby alternatives.

Dear Konrad J

It’s very disappointing for me to hear of your impression of our front of house staff, please accept my apology for this drop in service. The expectation of staff at Stamford are that they show passion and are happy to go the extra mile. I would be delighted to have the opportunity to show you that the service standard is not normally what you experienced and it would be my pleasure to personally take care of you on your next visit.

I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again.

Stayed here in April 2012 and grabbed one of the packages. Staff was just extremely helpful and nothing was too hard. Inoka who works there went out of her way to make sure we were looked after ensuring the celebration of our wedding anniversary was one to remember.

Room was AWESOME. It what set up perfectly for our occassion. Champagne and treats waiting for us. Bed decorated with rose petals and so on. Extremely in keeping for what we were after.

Tried the pool which on the night we were there had the roof open. Nothing beats swimming and looking up at all the buildings and fading blue sky. Sauna was fantastic - everything was very clean!!
