Stayed for three nights at the Stamford Plaza for an excellent rate that included valet parking and buffet breakfast. The hotel's location is excellent; so close to everything in the Melbourne CBD. Valet service on arrival was great, but had to call the concierge to bring our bags up. Room was a good size, with separate bath/toilet/shower/spa area. The bed was hard-as-a-rock with fluffy pillows. Not good for anyone with back problems. Two LCD tv's were great, lovely couch, but a tape deck (?) was also provided in place of an ipod dock (so my ipod stayed in my bag).
There was no view from the room, except of a darkened alley, which can get busy in early mornings due to trucks reversing, a bar downstairs etc but this is the CBD right?
There was also some smoking in the hotel corridors despite being advertised as 'smoke free'. More stickers need to be provided to alert guests I think.
Some staff seemed a bit unhappy, but the young lady at the breakfast reception area was all smiles & welcomes; great to see they have a good asset!
One small peeve, we were charged $4 for mini-bar which we didn't use, this was refunded.
All-in-all, a very good hotel for the Melbourne CBD.
