Arrived in this hotel at 10:30am during the presidents cup golf tournament and was just hoping to store my bags until check-in time later in day. I was given early check-in to a very well appointed room on the 8th floor.
The room (well actually a suite) was very spacious and had a kitchenette and lounge area.
WIFI in room was very fast and reliable for work. iPod docking station included in room also along with 2 TVs.
Staff were very helpful and accomadating.
Would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel has rooms on both sides of a narrow laneway. My room faced this laneway, so the room was q...

This is a nice hotel which is clean and comfortable however it felt like there was something lacking. Stayed for 3 nights over festive period. The foyer is very grand and the rooms don't quite live up to it.

We stayed in a king bed room. I think all the rooms include a kitchenette which we didn't need but if you were staying longer could be very useful. The bathroom is small and felt a bit cramped. There were two TVs! One in a lounge area (but the TV seemed very far from the seat on the other side of the room!) and the other opposite the bed. Bed was comfortable.

The location is excellent for central Melbourne. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel so can't comment on that. The pool was a bit disappointing as it was too small to swim in. Didn't use the gym.

I did notice some of the rooms had a balcony on the inside over looking the atrium. That seemed a bit odd and I am not sure we would have used it if staying in those rooms. I don't think any of the rooms would have a decent view.

With the exception of the foyer this hotel didn't feel 5 star but we enjoyed our stay. We would try somewhere else if visiting Melbourne again.

The Stamford Plaza in Melbourne was a great hotel to stay in! The room was clean and wel maintained. The space available with a lounge room was lovely. Decor was classic and comfortable. .things we liked:comfy beds and pillows,kettle and coffee/tea supplies, good quality toiletries, excellent bathrobes and slippers supplied.we didn't hear anyone next door to us either.good shower water pressure and spa bath. though we didn't utilize the pool,it was nice to know there was one! service was helpful and courteous.location was central to everything .though we didn't make use of the buffet breakfast offered nor did we do any cooking, you can request kitchen utensils if you want to cook in the room. Let downs:Internet too expensive to make use of, but that wasn't a problem for us as we could use Internet at cafes. Excellent value for money. Definitely will stay there again.

Everything is very pretty but the shower has barely enough pressure to wash shampoo out my hair. Also we requested fresh linnen but they just made the beds. The power switches off when the room's motion sensors cannot detect movement, so we woke up sweating throughout the night and always come back to a hot stuffy room. Overall for the price you think it would be a little more frivilous/luxurious

Sharp central location near China town and within walking distance of Flinders st Station, the MCG and the Crowne Casio entertainment and hospitality precinct. The Stamford was obviously one of the city’s premier hotels when it was built, ornately fitted out for the era of construction with marble facades, gold plated fittings, spacious common areas and the full assortment of guest services you would expect from a 5 star venue. It has however tiered a bit, it’s time has passed somewhat and despite, extremely friendly and helpful staff, great food, comfy beds with exceptional linen it was dark and a little dated with most views of another dated high-rise 5 meters from your window. While it delivered to a high standard on all the basics, offered exceptional service and was very comfortable it just lacked the happening atmosphere of the city itself, the guests seemed to match the lighting and were all a little dim. I would stay there again if they had a good deal but for the full rack rate you would be far better off shooting over to South Bank and staying in the Crown or one of the series of hotels over there which seemed to be a little newer, a little more action packed and their outlook on the city is a little more ornate.

Well what more can I say.......... by the far the friendliest and most helpful hotel staff I have ever experienced. They simply could not do enough for us, and the times we did ask for something we were absolutely astonished at the speed with which they helped us.
We have a baby, and due to our first room not having a door to shut off the bedroom (a very minor problem which would of course be no problem at all if you dont have a baby) we asked if they happened to have another room available for our second nights stay that had doors to shut off the bedroom from the lounge room. Well they could not have been anymore obbliging and quickly took us to see another room, to see if we liked then, then promtly sent someone to get our bags and we were moved into another room that easily.
Again, we experienced the amazing service when I realised I had left something in the old room and we phoned reception to let them know. Within two minutes we had a phone call saying that yes, someone had been and located the item and would be coming to drop it off shortly. In about a minute, a knock at the door and with the normal smile we were delivered our item. So refreshing to experience such a high quality of service and to be really made to feel like a special quest, not just another one of the many.
Gemma on reception - amazing, also, I'm sorry but I cant remember your name, but a young man on front desk who had 'in training' on his badge - again, such wonderful people skills.
Sure the style and quality of accomadation does matter alot, but when you get staff that ALL go above and beyond to make your stay the best possible, and who clearly enjoy doing so, then that makes a truley great hotel. Thank you Stamford, you helped our little family have one of the best weekends ever!

I was part of a group that had to entertain a couple of people from Singapore who wanted to eat local food we used this hotel as the guests stayed upstairs. From the time we arrived a group of 12 the bar provided well made coctails and drinks. We moved into the dining room which is large and noticed that only one other table was being used, the thinking was what is the food going to be like. The steaks served very good I even atempted a BLUE steak which was cooked the right way,we had a real mix of meals all of which well above standard , The one thing we could not understand is to why only two tables when this place was as good as if not better than some of the so called top earteries in Melbourne with the prices in most cases being half of the other places.
We as group will be back and as couples as well .
