“excellent central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The location of this hotel is excellent for shopping and even though it is very central, it is still a quiet hotel with no traffic or tram noise which is unusual in Melbourne. The service was excellent from the valet parking and welcome at the door to the check in/out.
We had a Queen studio room which was a very good size. The room had a couch which was really nice to be able to sit on a couch rather than a bed or a side chair. A small kitchen area which was a bonus if I was staying for a longer period, rather than overnight. Bathroom was well appointed but looked like it needed a bit of updating and I have never liked the shower over bath idea. So the bathroom was a bit disappointing.
Although the room was very nice and service was excellent I personally dont like hotel rooms that look out to the wall of the building next door. But unfortunately that is a common problem with inner city hotels and cant be changed.

Dear Judith C,

Thanks for taking the time to write such an informative review after your stay and I’m very pleased that the good outnumbers the not so good. I appreciate your comments regarding the limited view from some rooms, but as you have mentioned it’s a small compromise to make for our envied city location at the Paris End of Collins Street. I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
Kind regards,
Karl Unterfrauner

From moment you arrive at curb, treated well. Staff excellent. Nothing was a problem. Had booked one bedroom apartment but paid reduced price to upgrade to 2 bedroom. Great having the second room and bathroom. Spacious. Apartment had basic kitchen if you wanted to eat in. Nicely decorated but did finding lighting a little low. TVs in each bedroom and also lounge. Lovely and clean. Had safe, gowns. Didn't eat there as lots of options close by. Didn't get to pool/gym either. Try "famished" salad bar down the road for lunch, great food. Would definitely stay here again - great location.

Room Tip: We were on 11th floor, good view out of one of the bedroom windows, but otherwise no view. Still go...

Dear GTG2,

I’m so pleased to hear that your experience was wonderful from beginning to end and that our staff were able to go above and beyond to ensure your stay was perfect. With so much to see and do in Melbourne, I’m not surprised that you didn’t get a chance to make the most of all our facilities – you might have to stay longer next time! Thank you for your positive comments and we look forward to your next stay.

Stayed here on Fri 8th Feb for 1 night. Stay went well until we had a wait of 35mins outside for our car to come out of valet!! We told the doorman when we came out he said shouldnt be too long. We also told reception at check out and they told us our car will be sent down. It was shame as ended up a bad experience at end of stay. They did apologise but in most 5 star hotels your car comes out of valet within minutes, sometimes waiting for you!!

I’m very sorry to hear of the delay you experienced upon departure, this is certainly not the norm as our Valet team receive many compliments on their efficiency and high service standards. I apologise that we fell short in our service delivery on this occasion and for the impact this had on your stay. As a hotel we strive to provide our guests with an exceptional stay and of course want your lasting impression to be a positive one. I do hope you will return in the future and allow us the opportunity to show that we are capable of exceeding your expectations in all areas.

The inside of the towers was dated and old

from early checkin to no hassle checkout the Stamford was the perfect location to spend some me time. I booked through the wotif mystery hotel deal and was delighted to see the Stamford pop up. The deal was good value on it's own but I was obviously upgraded to a King suite. The location was easy walking to trams, shopping and theatres. The staff were very helpful and were more "natural" than many other larger chains such as the Hilton or Marriot. The suite although oo on the small side was very well appointed and clean and had everthing I could have needed. The gym was well equiped and the machines were all new and in good working order. The pool and spa were lovely - although a rail opposite the spa into the pool would be fantastic for those of us that have some difficulty with steps. The only hicup was I got locked out of my room dripping wet after the pool, I sat my key card on top of my phone while having a swim and wiped it clean, the staff quickly came to my rescue with a new key. Breakfast while a tad expensive at $ 32 was lovely with the chef preparing one of the lightest omelettes I have ever had.

Room Tip: I had a room on the 7th floor of the west tower and noise was not an issue, there is a bridge betwee...
