“Great Hotel !!!! We will be back !”
Reviewed January 16, 2009

This is the second time we have stayed here. The first time was 9 years ago for our first wedding anniversary. We booked a "Friday Shout" package and were not disappointed !

We were able to check in at 11.30am which gave us the day to spend browsing the shops in the city. Drinks at Harry's bar were well received before we headed off to the casino for a night out.

The staff were lovely, the concierge and porter were fab and the trainee on reception was lovely.

Our room was comfortable, clean and well appointed for the price. I would imagine that the introduction of LCD tv's, with the addition of a TV in the bedroom would be a benefit.

Breakfast was yummo with a good selection of hot and cold food, also a chef was on hand to cook eggs to order.

We would definately stay again. We found the Stamford to be a great Hotel.

We stayed one night after wining and dining at a top Melbourne restaurant. I agree with other reviewers who say that you get what you pay for. The rooms are comfortable and reasonable for the price, and a comprise good deal compared to what you have to pay in capital cities in other countries. Those who want a larger room or suite should simply book one and pay for it instead of complaining here.

Have stayed at other hotels in Melbourne which claim to be better but the Stamford beats them. Try gor a room in the East wing which have been renovated and are great sized. Have good sized kitchens and plasma tv's with HDMI support. West wing rooms are very quiet. This place is close to all the shopping, a 5 min walk to Bourke St Mall.

Good location within the CBD, Rooms are clean but of average size. They have a free washer/ drier in a common room for the use of the guests.

I have stayed here several times and always return for the great location and value for money.

I stayed 2 nights in a Queen executive room. This gives a full size lounge, a full kitchen, dressing room with ensuite. The only gripe with the room is that there are no real views (even on the 12th floor) and there is no separate shower with the shower over the bath. In addition, the shower is at the angled end of the bath meaning it is hard to stand at the angle and be under the shower head.

The room was clean and all facilities worked. Not all toiletries/bathroom items were replaced.

The breakfast was okay with a 20% given when I checked in. No pastries at all though.

My major gripe, that I have had with other hotels, is that housekeeping call when I have the do not disturb sign on the door to find when I was going to let them clean. As it happenned it did not disturb me but I can imagine being very angry if I was sleeping off jet lag or similar. No idea how to stop this happenning.

After reading some mixed reviews on the Stamford I was a little nervous about booking but after spending two nights in a Queen Suite I can only assume that some people must be really hard to please!! We booked directly through the hotel and got a great deal on 30 day advance purchase. The suite was roomy, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was well appointed with a fantastic "real" hairdryer! Big bath towels, comfy beds and furniture - everything you needed in the kitchen. The heating/cooing was easy to adjust. I really couldn't find anything to fault. The staff were super helpful in booking airport transport and storage of not only our bags but friends bags who stayed elsewhere!! Okay there wasn't much of a view even though we were on the 13th floor but that's because the neighbouring buildings are so much taller! The hotel is in a top location for shopping, Chinatown, theatres and a short walk to Southbank.

Our friends who came with us stayed elsewhere and got far less for alot more money. We will definitely be back!!!
