“Great Room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

I had a great stay at the Stamford Plaza. I originally booked a normal room however upon check in I was happy to be offered an upgrade to a bigger room! The buffet breakfast was quite good, especially the freshly made waffles and all the staff were very helpful. The only thing which I found a little annoying is that the valet parking was $45 for one night! I found this a bit expensive especially when other similar hotels were offering it for $30.

I loved, loved, loved every minute of this stay. We stayed here with hubby for 2nd anniversay and the celebration was made even more special cos of the lovely stay. The location was perfect for our foodie adventures, its on the right end of town, close to a lot, a lot of gorgeous restaurants. The room had all the lovely trimmings to make it outstanding, luxurious fabrics and very comfortable couch. The bed & pillows, my word! they were the standout for me, felt just like home. This is usually the hardest part of a hotel stay, while everything looks lovely does it function as well? Yes this one did, was tempted to stay in bed all day! Thank you Stamford, i can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: East Tower is the way to go

The hotel was super. Excellent location for the theatre and amazing dining. You can easily catch trams within a couple of blocks of the hotel. The Roof top pool was fun and the gym was fine. The breakfast buffet was excellent and they gave you a 50% off coupon as well. The rooms are a bit small but well laid out.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Just finished a business trip to Melbourne and stayed at the Stamford for the first time (on previous trips have stayed at the Novotel). I stayed on the 7th floor in the East Tower away from the lift.

It was a nice experience with friendly staff and pleasant service. I do not feel that this really is a '5 star' hotel, more like 4 star. The hotel has the old world business travel charm to it with the classical lobby music and room features etc. but it was the quality of these features that let it down a little bit.

Whilst attractive, the room features weren't in top condition with a few chips in the paint, on the doors, old ironing board etc. The bathrobes provided also felt a bit old (overwashed and not fresh). The duvet was also not in an acutal cover, but layered between sheets. These didn't really bother me, but these sort of things should be seamless (in my humble opinion) to be classified as 5 star.

Breakfast was easy and convenient, but if you have the time, would recommend dining somewhere else on Collins Street for something more cost appropriate.

If you're looking for a real 5 star experience then I would recommend you try another hotel, but for a comfortable business trip, then this hotel ticks all the cards (location, timely check in and check out services, helpful service, etc.)

Myself and 2 friends booked a room for a 'girls night out'. We had a room with two single beds and one 'trundle' bed. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and spacious. The location was excellent, within a short walk to restaurants, bars,... and of cause Melbourne's excellent shopping!!
