Huge rooms and beautiful view

The rooms were huge and directly on the ocean front and had been updated nicely. The main lobby is impressive looking, but the bottom floor spa was not too interesting approaching it because of the dated hallways.Also make sure to visit the Nascar behind the scenes tour and pick up a coupon savings magazine. [...] gives you free chocolate at the end of their free tour.

Easy weekend

I was able to enjoy a really great walk on the beach and some time just relaxing by the pool. It was nice to just get away for a couple of days. The room was nice and the bed was perfect. I got a really good nights sleep. The only disappointment was how poorly the elevators worked. I just used the stairs. It wasn't worth the wait.

4 stars...not really

The outside of the hotel, as well as the pool and the lobby all looked great. However, this is a large hotel and only has 3 standard sized elevators which really isn't enough to handle all of the guests. To make matters worse, one of the elevators became out of service after my first day of staying at The Plaza. This resulted in 20 minute waits for an elevator to become very common, and thats very annoying. Food and drinks within the restaurants and bars in the hotel were very high priced. Also, note that there is a $15 per day resort fee at this hotel. What do you get for the resort fee? Nothing. Towels at the pool deck maybe? Not worth it. The room was your average hotle room, with the added bonus of a large flat panel tv. This was nice, but still the rooms are very over-priced for what you get. The employees are all professional, kind, and polite. No complaints at all as far as customer service goes. But, I will not stay at The Plaza Resort in Daytona Beach again.

Hull's Seafood Market on Granada Blvd. This is a seafood market that also has a grill and they prepare all of the fresh caught seafood from the boats that fish right off the coast. This is local fish, very good tasting. Highly recommended

Fair hotel..... but great location.....

The hotel was ok at best. The hotel made promises they didn't keep. At 2 am 2 drunk guys kept knocking at our door and wouldn't leave. I love the location of the hotel but there were too many negatives to over come one positive.

Great location for the price!

Overall the experience was great. Newly renovated room, great pool and bar, and right on the beach a short walk from everything in Daytona Beach. One word of caution. Even though I paid extra for an oceanfront king, the hotel tried to say that was a "request" and that none were available. Once I called [...], they called the hotel and magically our room appeared! Otherwise this was a superb experience.

IHOP restaurant for breakfast or any meal is absolutely delicious with friendly staff 2 blocks away. Famous Boothill Saloon biker bar is fun for a short visit appox 1 mile away . I was worried I would feel out of place in this hotel but not at all. It is upscale but relaxed.

Weekend June 2011

No sea shells on this beach. Rooms were OK, bathromm had little counter space. Hotel is pass the beach boardwalk. The 3 small elevators were slow for the 14 floors. No stairs available to bypass elevators between 2nd floor front desk and 1st floor beach/pool access. Resort fee $15/day added to bill. Self park is free but is often full, then just self parked in the larger valet lot ($10/day)for free late one night.

Nice hotel

The hotel is very elegant on the inside as well as on the outside. I really like our room because it was on the first floor so the pool and beach were super close, I didnt have to get on the elevator excpet when going to the lobby (its on the second floor). The pool is ideal for grownups but not so much for children under 9 years of age because it might be a bit deep for those children who dont know how to swim. The elevators take long so you might end up waiting a couple of minutes, also everything is shut down pretty early compared to nearby hotels and it gets pretty dark, expcept the pool lights. Reason being because of turtle egg season (there was a sign explaining). You do have to walk a couple of blocks to get to the shopping center. Overall it was a great trip and a good hotel. I called for chair and a bell cart at guest services and it didnt take them long at all. Oh, and I really loved that all the rooms were equiped with a microwave, fridge, and sink! Not even Hilton, a couple blocks down, have those (I went there last year for memorial day too).
