Overall a good experience. Hotel is showing some age & could use some updates. Carpet in hallways stained, leaky in room coffee pot, leaking hvac unit on balcony. Good service at food & beverage areas. Very friendly & attentive staff. Close to good restaurants.

great hotel

the hotel is right on the beach with a great beach bar downstairs (bongos) close to the outdoor pool. everything was perfect except the coffee maker. that thing just made two cups and leaked on everything when you poured from it. get a full size coffee maker and I will come back. ha! ha just kidding I would come back anyway and then go to the store and buy one. beautiful sunsets and great rotating restaurant on top (spinners) which is so elegant and gives you a view of the gulf and all 360 degree around you in 45 minutes.

Nice relaxing location

The hotel is nice with a good proximity to the ocean. The beds could have been a bit more comfortable though. They did upgrade us for free to a room that was on a higher floor. No hot tub though the hotel next door had one. All in all if you are looking to stay in st Pete's not pay resort fees or parking this is a good value. Just wish we would have stayed in Clearwater as their was no dance clubs just small local beach bars.

If you want to go to night clubs you will have to drive to Clearwater with traffic that could be 45 minutes.

Great time

Our stay at the Grand was just that. The hotel which is not the newest on the beach is well maintained, very clean, and you will get the awesome service. The location is fantastic and if you like easy listening music they have some of the best on the beach. Meals were tasty and priced equivalent or better than any resort in the area. There were no hidden charges at The Grand unlike many other hotels which charge for parking, internet, etc. For us we enjoyed the entire time there.

Not even get what you pay for!!

We had an terrible loud room, no sleep at all. It seems that night shift staff are having a break room next to guest rooms. Door noise (hammering) every 10 minutes from 11pm until 6pm from this room, then cleaning crew starts to prepare there cards … Hotel is Old and has dark floors, AC loud and makes sleep impossible, beds like hammock, staff we had was arrogant. At check out there didn't ask how was your stay, may about the room number. The bar outside is nice, friendly staff but cocktails with nothing but juice. Over all, this Hotel needs many updates, redesigned rooms and new interior.

Wedding Festivity

My son and I attended a wedding for his friend. The wedding ceremony was nice at the beach. The reception was held in the Presidential Ballroom at the penthouse overlooking the beach. This was a wonderful place to have a wedding ceremony. The hotel was built in the 70's. There were only two elevators and they were small. The amount of people using the elevators during peak hours were insufficient to handle the large amounts of people coming and going throughout the building. The room was small not allowing much movement space. There was insufficient drawer space to place clothing and belongings for two people.

Several restaurants were in walking and driving distance from the hotel. Crabby Bill's restaurant was a great place to eat. The food was good, substantial portions, at a reasonable price. The restaurant was very family friendly.
