“Good location, comfy feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The Stamford Melbourne is a solid, comfy and roomy hotel. It executes the necessities of a business hotel perfectly well. What makes it stand out though is it is nice and roomy. Having a separate lounge and small kitchen is a big tick. Not sure though about a breakfast service that sends bread instead of toast but with so many great cafes in Melbourne it's easy to work around it.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights mid week and got an amazingly cheap deal of $129 a night off Wot If...upon check in we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff and given an upgrade from Queen Studio to Kind Suite, which was very much appreciated. Over the duration of our stay we had a night cap at Harry's Br and were served by a very friendly female bar tender who was happy to serve us before she shut up the bar. We also got room service breakfast which was delivered promptly and was as requested. One evening after being quite tired from the days activities we decided to order room service and got the butter chicken and gnocchi. My boyfriend said the butter chicken was not what he was expecting and was more a massman style curry, but was enjoyable none the less. Overall the location, price, service and rom quality was of a very high standard and I would recommend the Stamford over a number of other 5 star hotels in the city. There were minimal flaws, but the bathroom had slight wear and tear, but for the price we paid I would definitely stay there again. The staff were very helpful and made our stay an enjoyable one. We will be back.

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying on a higher floor.

We stayed recently in the 1Bedroom Suite, with Spa on Good Friday. We dined in enjoyed the seafood tower for 2, which included a bottle of wine for $95, by normal standards this is quite reasonable. Room had kitchenette and mini bar, two flat screens, lovely furnishings. Bathroom had golden fittings which were starting to show there age, but not really worth complaining about, just an antiquey sort of feel to it which was nice. Staff were pleasant and genuine, valet parking although not cheap at$45 per day, was managable for 1 night and very convenient. Would stay again, looked at staying at Hyatt and decided the $200 difference would give us some nice play money in the city instead.

Room Tip: Try and get a street view - although not really an issue either. Have heard some lame complaints on...

I live in Melb and stayed here to be closer to the city so I could meet up with some friends. Check in was nice and quick, the room looked a bit dated but for the Easter special it was good value. Internet unfortunatley was not included in the rate which a lot of hotels charge for but I was able to use the business centre complimentary for Internet usage. I didnt use many items in the hotel due to the short visit but it was good overall.

Great location in the middle of Melbourne CBD. Very friendly service from the concierge to reception to house keeping staff. Rooms are clean and spacious. First morning breakfast I was not really impressed with for various reasons... Coffee cold, bacon not cooked, and service not great.. But the other 2 mornings found were much better... Maybe different staff on the weekend? Would absolutely recommend Stamford Plaza and would stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a 2 bedroom apartment and was very spacious and comfortable.. ASk for a room with Juliette ba...

Stayed here for 5 nights for a conference and was quite impressed with the room. It was rather large with a large lounge. Conference facilities were excellent, food was ok when served at the room but not when downstairs in restaurant at lunch time. Will certainly stay here again and have conference here.

Got a last minute deal for a one bedroom suite for $160 a night. A better bargain couldn't be had. The room was great, with a kitchenette, small lounge area, desk and dining table. The room was ultra quiet, could hear a pin drop. Fantastic location and friendly staff made it a very enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: Room 1206 is very quiet. Any "06" room would be the same I would imagine.
