Great .... But

Overall a great experience. Only complaint would be the extremely dirty pool. The gulf waters were too warm for us so we opted for the pool which was a huge disappointment from the size to the filthy condition of it.

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

The restaurants inside the hotel were excellent

The hotel was having construction done on the roof, and we heard jackhammers for three straight days. It's supposed to be done in April, I wish we'd have been told or given the chance to pick a different room at the beginning. The food and servers were excellent!!!

Grand Plaza really is Grand

The hotel has wonderful amenities, especially sitting right on the beach, with three different restaurants, a pool, a gym, a fantastic penthouse complex and other features. Everything is so convenient. We will definitely return. We ate at all three restaurants and the food was great. All of the staff were very friendly and attentive. We are very happy with Grand Plaza.

Be sure to eat at Spinners, the rooftop restaurant the rotates 360 degrees for a beautiful view of The Gulf and all of St. Petersburg. Also go to Bongo's at sunset over the Gulf and The Palm room for a great breakfast buffet.

Very Good

The beach access is great. Spinners is a great place to end the night. Really, really, really wish you had ethernet access in your rooms. The wireless network goes in and out. I've never been in a hotel as good as that one that didn't have ethernet in the room, had to go into the lobby to have a secure connection to the internet for an extended period of time without a drop out.

Nice location and clean!

Hotel was clean and right on the ocean! Great price for great location. Plenty of restaurants within a mile radius. Weather can be hit or miss in February we had 3 days in the 70s and 3 in the low 60s.

Perfect location

Perfect location! Right on the beach, many restaurants to choose from within walking distance. Great for a getaway without a car. Don't forget to visit Pass-a-Grille. The only thing missing was a jacuzzi for chilly nights.
