Central and Quiet

Pros: Quiet
Cons: Valet Parking
Centrally situated, spacious room, extremely comfortable bed. Clean and well maintained. Friendly staff. Only drawback was the Valet Parking which requires a 30 minute lead time to bring the car to the Hotel Entrance. Guests would be advised to request the car pickup with a specified pick up time well in advance.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us in this forum. We are so pleased that you rated most aspects of your stay so highly. It is true that for the convenience of our guests and to avoid wait times, we do request 30 minutes notice where possible to bring the car to the hotel. Your comments relating to this process are appreciated and have been duly noted and we will certainly review how we can perhaps better communicate this to our guests. We thank you for choosing Stamford Plaza Melbourne on this occasion and look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back, in the not too distant future.

Old and tired

Hotel is old and tired, rooms with old facilities with no money spent on it in years. Crappy old bathrooms (stand in the bath to have a shower). Instead of old world and charming, it felt old world and crusty. Overpriced for what it is.

We are naturally disappointed that you weren’t completely satisfied with all aspects of your stay. Whilst it is never pleasant to learn that we have failed to meet the expectations of our guests your honest feedback is very much appreciated and has been duly noted. The comfort of our guests is always our prime concern and in the event that we may be so fortunate as to welcome you again, one of our Superior Rooms may be more to your satisfaction. They are our newest category of suite and along with a more modern styling they feature a walk in shower. We would be very grateful for the opportunity to restore your confidence in our hotel and i do hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back. Best Regards, Karl Unterfrauner General Manager

Should have used a proper designer/architect

Pros: um ... the bellhops
Cons: Everything but the bellhops
Location: The location is very good, close to a lot of great bars and restaurants
Whilst there is enough space in the rooms it is so badly designed it feels small with a direct view onto the very close, next door building which blocked the light rendering the window useless. The televisions are small (why have 2, instead have one decent sized one) The bathroom is literally a toilet with a shower. The basin is in the cupboard area but there is no doorway separating this from the bed not allowing for any privacy. Next time get a Feng Shui expert as the whole time i expected the roadrunner to charge through the many small spaces. The bellhops were fantastic but the reception staff looked like they had witnessed a murder and acted accordingly. "How was your stay?" was clearly not a question they felt comfortable to ask and I know why.

Long weekend for comedy festival..usual polite staff ..always eager to assist and genuinely friendly. This was my 3rd stay at the Plaza this time on a lower floor which was surprisingly noisy but otherwise a faultless weekend.
