“Perfect Hotel Suite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

From the moment we pulled up quickly greeted by doorman, who took our bags and arranged for vehicle to be parked. The only thing wrong was Check iin staff could have been more friendly, but he was efficient. 1 Bedroom suite was perfect. A large bed, Jacuzzi in bath room, Lounge area, Kitchen with an oven and Dishwasher. Hotel will give you cooking implements if you ask for them. Very quiet and the only only time we saw people were in the Lift, Swimming pool and Restaurant/Bar. Swimming Pool was clean and inviting. Towels had run out on the pool deck but this was quickly rectified. Perfect Location for anywhere in the Centre or Paris end of the city. If you can get a package with breakfast is a big help due to it is expensive but well worth it. Continental breakfast $27 or works $37. 11 am checkout is perfect. Highly recomend Hotel

Room Tip: As high as possible and in the west tower

We stayed here for 3 nights for our honeymoon and it was great. We had a package that gave us a lovely bottle of champagne everyday and had rose petals on our bed and chocolate dipped strawberries. It was very romantic and beautiful. The staff were very attentive and the mushroom risotto from the restaurant was amazing! Would love to stay again.

We stayed at the Stamford Plaza during the Australian Open so the location was fantastic with easy access to Melbourne park.

I was really disappointed with the lobby, having read about the multi million dollar makeover the hotel had received...very drab. Our queen suite was very dark with little natural light and a view of nothing but the other side of the hotel...the bathroom was tiny and a little dated and no door from the bedroom to the bathroom. The kitchen area is unnecessary - space would be better used to enlarge and upgrade the bathroom.

Several of the miniature bottles on the mini bar had already been used and refilled with water - surely they would check this on a daily basis?

The restaurant and bar staff were great - special thanks to Kelly for coming up with a perfect Singapore Sling! The food was surprisingly good at the bar....well done.

Whilst the room and the lobby were a disappointment, they were perfectly adequate and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on a high floor so you get a little natural light - go for the best room you can...

Dear Patz02,
I am disappointed to hear that your suite did not meet your expectations exactly, but pleased that the comfort and convenience meant that it did not affect your enjoyment. Harry’s Bar offers a great cocktail menu and I’m delighted that Kelly was able to hit the spot with her Singapore Sling – a great way to top off an afternoon at the tennis. We look forward to welcoming you back again and feel free to request a suite on a high floor to gain more natural light.

When we opened out room door for the first time, we were amazed at how much room was in our king bed suite. Large living area, bar style kitchenette, and 2 TVs. If you don't mind slightly outdated decor and fittings, but appreciate open spaces, this is the place to stay. About 2 minutes walk to Bourke St Mall, $10 taxi to Crown Casino, and minimal traffic noise on the 11th floor. Staff were friendly and efficient, and we were checked in and out swiftly. Originally planning on cooking breakfast since the kitchenette had hotplates, but sadly no cooking equipment like frying plans or spatulas. But it didn't matter, because a short walk away, and there were many restaurants and cafes.

We booked a 'mystery hotel' on wotif.com and got The Stamford. Have previously stayed twice at Sydney airport Stamford but Melbourne city Stamford smashes it for friendly and efficient service. Suites are very spacious and I LOVE hotel rooms with robes. Would def stay again.

Stayed here for 4 nights in January 2013. The hotel is easy walking distance to many major attractions in Melbourne. The staff is very friendly and courteous. Though we had a 1 bedroom suite, I found our room to be a little on the small side, especially the bathroom. That said, the room was very clean and it was helpful having a kitchen, even though we didn't use it much. You have to pay for wi-fi use in your room, but there's a business center with a couple of computers with free internet. Overall a very pleasant stay!

My daughter and I stayed at the Stamford in a 1 bedroom Suite. The set up was great with its own little kitchen, dining, lounge area and separate bedroom with King size bed. The furnishings are quite lush. the pool & spa are a little outdated. Gym is fully equipped with all the necessary gear with modern treadmills. One of the things I look forward to with staying at a 5 star property is the gorgeous comfy beds and Stanford did not disappoint. Our stay was spoiled due to the water leak we experienced in the dining area. Half of the dining area was saturated in water that was coming from a busted pipe (house keepings words). When the flood was bought up with reception on check out the guy checking us out thanked me for bringing it to his attention. He expressed to me that it was lucky that this happened on the day that we were checking out. For this calibre of hotel I expected more than a "so sad too bad" kind of attitude. I am a travel agent and if my clients experienced the same dilemma I would hope that the hotel would at least offer them a free cup of coffee.

Dear happestos,
It’s great that you were able to spend some quality time with your daughter in the comfort of one of our suites. Thanks for highlighting our recently refurbished gym facility, there are many guests like yourself that enjoy our new modern equipment. I am terribly sorry to hear of the maintenance issue you experienced on your final day and apologise that you felt the problem was not handled with more empathy and understanding. The matter has been referred to our Front Office Manager for follow up with her team. When you are next visiting Melbourne please feel free to contact me directly, so I may personally oversee your arrangements and ensure your stay exceeds your expectations in every way.
Kind regards,
