“First timer and will return!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Stayed during the Melbourne Cup eve, booked the 2 bedroom apartment on special as a mystery hotel on wotif.

We normally and 80% of the time would go and stay in a twin room at one of the three crown hotels, however this time we wanted to be located right in the city therefore this hotel really came up as a surprise for us.

Firstly it is located in the CBD, easy to find along the little collins st and staffs were really friendly and helpful, upon getting out of my car already feeling welcomed by the valet parking staff. Check in was smooth and quick, welcoming and friendly yet again.

Overall we had a lovely stay as first impression, clearly location was ideal, friendly staffs, clean, spacious rooms.. nothing else to say, this has become our 2nd hotel option to stay in besides the Crown for sure.

Staying at the Stamford Plaza Melbourne is always a pleasure. The staff is friendly and helpful and often an upgrade is offered free of charge. A half-price drink offer is a good way to unwind after arriving and before dinner. Rooms are roomy and comfortable.

Had a work conference in Melbourne stayed at Stamford Plaza. Upgraded to King Suite. Absolutely fabulous. Everything spotlessly clean and of high quality. Loved the "gold taps". Onlky issue was when you turned tv off in bedroom the one in the lounge came on.
Front desk staff very welcoming and helpful. Taxis always available.
Had dinner at Harrys, great service and wonderful food.
Would recommend highly to anyone going to Melbourne.

Dear vallywallyperth,
With 9 conference rooms to choose from, Stamford Plaza Melbourne is an exceptional venue for group meetings and conferences and our luxurious suites offer the perfect spot for some R&R after a long day of work. I’m thrilled you enjoyed the delicious menu at Harry’s, did you happen to try the shiraz braised beef cheeks? It’s an absolutely delicious dish.
Thank you for your kind sentiments and for sharing your recent experience, we greatly appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you when you next visit Melbourne

Currently I'm a guest at Stamford Plaza Melbourne. My partner and I stay here very often, we love this hotel. My fiancé proposed to me at this hotel in December 2011 and ever since then we come here to celebrate every special occasion, or just to feel like were leaving in a land of luxury for a night for 2. This hotel is fantastic, a true 5 star hotel. I've stayed at many 5 star hotels on the past but this one truly lives to its name. From check in to complimentary room upgrades, to stubbing decorated rooms and fantastic facilities, this hotel is truly number 1 in Melbourne. I hugely recommend this hotel always to all my friends and family and will continue to come here as often as I can to feel special as I do today. Thanks Karl and Stamford staff for making my stay memorable.

Stayed in two bedroom apartment on a Friday night. Very roomy and all conveniences of home plus lcd in each room. Concierge and Front desk staff are friendly and very helpful. Room was clean. Some of the room's fixtures are in need of refurbishment but it is not a deal breaker. Will stay here again. Lcated in the Paris end of Little Collins Street. Close to city, many great restaurants nearby, trams only a few minutes away. Ideal. On 14th floor which should have been quite but roadworks /traffic backing noise in Alfred Place was a bit annoying in early hours of morning but really that is outside hotel's control.

We very recently stayed in the Stamford Plaza in Melbourne.

I had stayed in the Brisbane Stamford Plaza before, and it was a very nice hotel.

In the case of our Melbourhe stay, I had booked the 'Romance and Seduction Package' via wotif.com.

The package included scattered rose petals, romantic music, Champagne, a personalised bottle of wine, chocolate-dipped strawberries and canapes, along with in-suite buffet breakfast and a midday checkout.

The day before checkin, the hotel called to confirm our arrival time, as a bubble bath had been run and was awaiting us.

When checking in, we were informed that we had been upgraded from a queen room to a king suite with a balcony overlooking the interior of the hotel. That was altogether unexpected, and a pleasant surprise.

The service was excellent and professional, as can be expected in such a hotel.

Upon arriving in our room, it was fitted out beautifully, and was a large, spacious suite with comfortable furniture and all the goodies the package had promised.

It marked the start of a very significant trip.

I found the bathroom rather small, and the shower and spa bath were combined; but otherwise the facilities were excellent. The Bvlgari bathroom products also added a nice touch.

On the morning of our departure we ordered in-suite breakfast, which arrived much more promptly than expected. It was nice to sit on our balcony in the fluffy bathrobes dining on in-suite breakfast as though we were special guests.

All of the hotel staff with whom we dealt were very polite and professional, and made our short stay very pleasant.

The hotel is also positioned quite well on Little Collins St, with Southbank and much of the Melbourne CBD being a five-to-ten-minute stroll.

Overall, the Stamford Plaza in Melbourne provided a very pleasant stay at a very inexpensive price for what was included. The price of the Moët & Chandon alone was at least a quarter of the price of our package.

Having stayed twice in Stamford Plaza hotels, I'd thoroughly recommend the Melbourne hotel, where the service, facilities, location and experience were all excellent.

We recently stayed for 4 nights and had a fantastic time in Melbourne. A big part of that satifaction was being able to access the CBD so easily from the hotel and then have a big comfortable space to come back to at the end of a busy day.
The staff at check in were very professional, friendly and made us feel welcome.
The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed.
It was unfortunate that the pool was out of order as this was a big reason as to why we booked the hotel as I was looking forward to having a swim with my young daughter. We were told we could use the pool at the hotel down the street twice during our stay and the Stamford would reimburse us for the cost, however I didn't take them up on this offer.
We'll certainly consider staying in this hotel again, but will be sure to check that all of the advertised amenities are available before booking.
All in all a lovely hotel.
