“Good business or family hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Comfortable and quiet rooms with easy access from the lobby. Great location at the price and more friendly than some of the other larger 5 star venues nearby (in fact I have a choice of hotel via my employer and I choose this venue over the others nearby). The staff are service oriented and deal with requests in an efficient and friendly manner. I have been upgraded frequently (it seems this is policy if rooms are free?) and I have already decided that on my next family trip to Melbourne, we will stay in one of the 2-BR suites.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Stamford Plaza (Wot if Mystery hotel deal ) and had an enjoyable stay. Suite was lovely, bed very comfortable, but did find it a bit noisy ,also quite dark as we looked straight out onto other buildings, but then you are in the city. Was handy for everything, shops, cafés, trams etc which was great. Had dinner in the bar one night, there were probably eight people there,; firstly our meals were given to another table, so we were given a free drink each, then when we did get our meals, the home made tartare sauce was missing. So had to go and ask for that, sat down again to start our meals only to find we had a spoon and a knife each , try eating fish and chips with that ! So had to go back and ask for forks so we could eat, had a laugh about it though ! But not what you expect in a 5 star hotel !! Also, object to paying for internet access, this should be free ! Would still stay again though.

The stamford plaza is the one hotel in the melbourne cbd that i keep coming back to time and time again,because the rooms are so grand and beautifully decorated.The rooms are actually suites with living room,dining table and kitchen.oh and i can't forget the spa as well as the comfy bed.The hotel is smack bang in the middle of the best shopping and dinning in melbourne and so close to all the wonderful sights and sounds of this wonderful city.

Overall I was not happy with the Stamford Plaza Melbourne considering the price.

First the good - The staff were exceptional from the door man to the check i desk and anyone else I encountered. Excellent customer service skills. The location is also fantastic, plenty of places to eat and drink, transport easy - this is potentially why you would stay here....

Now the bad, the rest I was unhappy with, my perspective is considering the base rate was $300 a night for the lowest room, which is not a cheap room. For $300 a night and a 5 star rating I was disappointed with the quality of the room, it is very tired, We also had a room with hardly any natural light and the lighting in the room was inadequate to do some of the work I had to do. I could not believe the price of the mini bar, yes you expect over inflated prices but WOW $5 for a coke??!!!! Good thing is there are plenty of shops close by. Also when you pay 5 star prices you don't expect to have to pay for every add on. $25 a day for internet access, that is just rude. For your $300 a night you basically get a very tired old and dark room. the rest you have to pay for. Also the windows were not double glaze so you can hear all the noise of the street (we were on level 8).I will not be going back which is a shame as the staff were brilliant.

Room Tip: High up and not over looking the alley between the 2 towers

Dear Travelling_Fi0na,
It is disappointing to learn that your suite was not to your liking especially as you were so impressed with other aspects of your stay. The comfort of our guests is our prime concern and as such we offer suites in different sizes, configurations and with different outlooks. It is true that our central city location does limit natural light in some areas of the hotel, though if we have another opportunity to accommodate you I am sure we would be able to allocate a room which covers all of your requests. Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback, I know our team of staff will be very pleased to read your review with your kind compliments.

Kind regards,
Lilian Roger

We arrived at the hotel very early (8am) and our room was not ready which was to expect. The staff was very nice from the first moment and allowed us to use the bathroom on the first floor to refresh after the long flight from Europe. When we got back in the afternoon, we found our luggage already in the room which was a nice touch.

The room itself was quite spacious (suite-like with living room and kitchen), quiet and with a nice bathroom. We found it spotless clean, too.

The location is great, just steps from Collins Street and close to all downtown attractions. Federation Square is just a 10-minute walk. The concierge provided us with public transport passes and was very knowledgeable about what to do and how to get where we wanted to go.

On one morning we ate breakfast at the hotel and found the buffet to be of good quality and to have a broad selection, even if maybe a bit expensive.

On departure, we asked to prearrange a taxi early in the morning and the car was there waiting for us at the agreed time.

All-in-all, a great experience and we would return anytime.

We stayed at the Stamford for the last weekend in Feb. We arrived very early in the morning from a flight from Perth and the staff not only allowed us to check in early, they also upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite. The bed was really comfy and the heavy curtains allowed us some great sleep-ins. We didn't use the kitchen facilities as we ate out, but it was good to have the option. Loved the French inspired decor and the location. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay again, loved it. The only thing I could pick at was the carpet was a bit tired in the corridors and could use a re-vamp.

I am really pleased that the comfort of our suites allowed you to relax and rest during your time in Melbourne. We often receive comments on what a great nights’ sleep our beds provide and I am glad to know you also found this to be true. I appreciate your feedback regarding our carpets and this is an area we have since addressed with urgency and I am sure you will notice a great improvement on your return – we hope you’ll be back soon.
