As you have mentioned, our hotel suites are generously sized and with the features of a kitchenette or full kitchen, as well as a separate marble bathroom, they certainly provide both comfort and convenience.

Unfortunately we were placed in a gloomy room with little natural light, so without the lights on it was hard to tell if it was night our day. Room ambiance was terrible, room service was only average with a hefty price tag of course. Stay'd at many 5 star hotels over the years so its quite easy to distinguish the difference. The Stamford Plaza Melbourne in my opinion is only average and given the price it should be up there with the best. Looks can be deceiving and room ambiance is all important to make your stay enjoyable. Would not recommend this hotel, there is an abundance of other hotels with much more to offer.

The Stamford Hotel is in a great location handy to all Melbourne has to offer, with trams ready to whisk you off to any city destination only a short walk away. Shop till you drop with an abundance of food outlets on your doorstep. Unfortunately we were placed in a dingy room at the Stamford room 417 with very little natural light very disappointing without the lights on we had no idea if it was night or day, room ambiance was terrible. We soldered on regardless, however the room service was not much better to be honest. All the staff were very warm and friendly so that was an added bonus, would I recommend the Stamford given the cost and the room we were put it I don't think so. They need to step it up and at least provide you with a room that is filled with natural light and has a warm inviting ambiance.

The service we had when we booked in was excellent. He went out of his way to locate a movie theatre and times for us and gave us directions. Very pleasant and made us feel so welcome.

Great location, needs updating!

In the middle of the city, not far from the main shopping hub but needs new everything! Room was spacious but didn’t feel clean due to the age. Some serious dollars could make this magnificent like it once was!
