Welcome to the hotel where the front desk staff don't tell you to request a wake-up call as they are aware that most alarm clocks don't wake you or work. The rooms at this "suite hotel" are semi-OK but (there's always a but with Stamford!) there is only 1 small TV in the lounge. You have to almost perch it at a precarious angle and prop it up to almost see it in bed. If you can get into the Hyatt or the Hilton you'll be in a better room, for a similar price, and not wake up at 0853 when you are due at a meeting 45 minutes taxi away at 0900. I have now stayed at this hotel several times and really cringe when our travel agent tells me it's the only room available in the area. The front desk staff are helpful, and the restuarant is OK.

The Stamford Plaza is well located on Little Collins Street but it suffers from poor service and a lack of natural lighting in its rooms. I found it impossible to tell what the weather was like outside as the room windows looked into a narrow corridor between two office buildings and I could not see the sky. (Perhaps the quid pro quo for having a "suite" room at the Stamford Plaza is that you sacrifice having a view.)

Although the Stamford Plaza is considered to be a "five star" hotel with prices to match, it comes across as a three or four star hotel as service leaves much to be desired. The room also has a faded genteel feel to it and needs some updating. It was curious that for a 'suite' room it had a comparatively small bathroom which was quite narrow.

Breakfast is not provided at the Stamford Plaza and no complimentary newspapers are delivered to your room. I would suggest walking down Little Collins Street to Laurent Patisserie for breakfast and a read of the papers instead.

Do not expect the hotel to match other 'five" star hotels in Australia such as the Four Seasons or a Peppers Lodge. At this price range, you would be better advised to stay at a different hotel.
