“A very nice hotel conveniently located to shopping, sports, and dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Friendly staff, both helpful and informative. A very clean hotel with nice quiet rooms. (We were right across from the elevator and were never bothered by noise). Small kitchens are included - we didn't use it, but they seemed to have everything you would need.
I believe their best asset is the convenient downtown location! You are within walking distance (5-15 minutes) of a variety of shopping and dining options. And a 15-20 minute walk to the Australian Open tennis courts, and/or the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) sports stadium.
We took in the Australian Open tennis tournament, and I'd highly recommend staying at the Stamford Plaza for it's convenient location!

Dear NdExplorer,
No matter which sport you follow, or which team you support (we won’t judge!) when you stay at the Stamford Plaza Melbourne you’ll get to the match quickly and easily. It’s great to visit Melbourne during the Australian Open, there’s a real buzz of excitement. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope you had a great time at the tennis. Hopefully we can welcome you back for the same time next year.

Kind regards,
Karl Unterfrauner

Thank you, Stamford Plaza Melbourne for a wonderful, recent stay in Mellbourne. It was my partner's first time in Melbourne and our first proper holiday in nearly five years and our expectations were certainly exceeded. My requests for our room location were 100% met, ensuring a sound sleep. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel is in a fabulous location, breakfast is amazing and the room service menu of a very high standard (loved the mushroom risotto!). We loved the lounge room area and the two plasma screens (lounge and bedroom). The gym, pool and sauna were great and used on a couple of occasions. Room was well maintained. We will definitely return one day and will recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Higher floors in the west tower are very quiet. Go for a two bedroom suite with spa bath.

Staff friendly and very helpful. Room quiet, smart and very clean. We didnt use the kitchen but it had everything if we'd wanted too. Spa bath not the greatest but clean and useable. Nice pool area. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Only stayed here the once and it was good but cant comment on other rooms.

The first time we arrived at the hotel, we were quite shocked with the lobby. It was small and felt nothing like a five star hotel. Even the general presentation of the hotel is more like a 4 star hotel. On the way to our room, we could see paints peeling off in many places, particularly on door frames which wasn't nice to see. The moment we entered our room, we were very impressed with just about everything. It had kitchen cabinet, living room was quite spacious, furniture was modern and well maintained, overall the room exceeded our expectation. In the room package, it didn't come with free breakfast, the reception gave us 50% discount voucher for breakfast instead. The breakfast lacked variety and there was nothing special, which made us only to use 2 vouchers out of 4 that they gave. The location is very good, it's in the centre of Melbourne CBD even though it's located in the small alley of little collins st. The room definitely covered up for the lack of other stuff. Given room rate is acceptable for this kind of hotel, I will probably come back.

Dear jimmy m m,
I am surprised to hear of your first impression as only late last year we completed a multi million dollar upgrade on our reception and lobby area, but I am pleased that this initial impression did not last long. Your comments regarding our breakfast buffet selection will be reviewed by our Executive Chef and his team, we accept feedback such as yours constructively as a means to improve our products. Thank you for a comprehensive review and I do hope we will welcome you back in the not too distant future.
Kind regards,

Stamford Plaza is right next to my work, and I always wanted to stay there - and was not disappointed at all.

Staff are absolutely lovely, friendly and always smiling. Room was very clean, well presented, in-room dining was delicious.

This is a very nice hotel, with friendly and attentive staff.
The rooms are well appointed, clean and fresh.
No request was overlooked by the staff - room service was excellent, with custom menu choices being made available after hours on request!
My only (very minor) gripe was that the second key for the room wasn't activated - a very very minor mistake that didn't impact on the overall enjoyment of the stay.
The Spa is only a bathtub spa, but that was as described in the description.

Good hotel in the heart of Melbourne. But some of the rooms look at the very close wall of the next building. Very clean. Bathroom very, very small, but lounge room good size. I rather have it that way. Kitchen very handy, but you have to ask for pots. Room service very quick and with a smile. Pool very small. Harry's restaurant closed quite earlier at night, but where the hotel is located this is not a big problem as there are plenty of restaurants around. Mahjong Black opposite hotel serves very nice Chinese food. Would stay again the hotel.

Dear iwona3,
Thank you for a thorough review and I’m pleased to read that the positives outnumber the negatives. As you have mentioned our suites are very convenient for short or long stays, offering a great sized lounge room, separate bedroom and a kitchen. The perfect space to relax after a hard day at work or a busy day of sightseeing.
