Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Proximity to the beach was perfect. Beautiful panoramic views from the hotel top. Staff very friendly. Restaurants food very good. Only real problem was noisy air conditioner.

Water pressure very weak. Hotel very dated, looks a little worn down. Housekeeping left our door blocked open for who knows how long. Overpriced but on the beach so not going to get a better deal probably

‘‘This was exactly the vacation w were looking for. The Hotel is beautiful and the staff very pleasant and always willing to help. We really enjoyed the food, drinks and band at Bongos. My only complaint is the gym. The equipment was old and decrepit. The eliptical Machine was rusty and squeaky. Many of us enjoy a good workout while on vacation and that was not possible in the gym. Needs to be updated.

Loved the rotating restaurant on the top level, and watching the sunset from the outside bar overlooking the ocean. Great service on the beach, too.

didn't want to leave!! everything was wonderful from Simona at check-in,George and Steven down at Bongos, Kym our server at Level 11 to Melinda in housekeeping! See you all next year.

Nice hotel and right on the beach. Room was smaller than I expected but clean and comfortable. Bed linens were particularly nice. Would definitely stay here again

Always nice to stay! Would like to be on the opposite side of the air conditioners as they are very loud and the balcony is right above it! Rooms were fresh and loved the bedding!

Good get away Friendly, helpful staff Nice, quiet time to vacation at St. Pete's Beach

I felt like I was on my honeymoon again! hotel staff was very nice.

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights, the hotel is amazing, service blew my mind. The stuff there are polite, happy, helpful. I love this place, from now on every time we go to Florida this is the spot to stay at.

We overall enjoyed our stay. All restaurants staff was helpful and friendly, however, hotel itself and rooms need renovation and remodeling.

This hotel is directly on the beach with great views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Highly recommend ! Nice stay , would definitely recommend !

Hotel a little dated, elevator wasn't working. Really who cares, I was on vacation. Nice restaurants, Bongos and Spinners were great. Clean beaches, centrally located

This hotel was nice. The rooms were kept up for the most part. The maid service was good but got rid of some of our stuff they shouldn't have. The bed was lumpy and the mattress felt pretty used and needed replacement. Overall it was a nice place and you can't beat the beach location. The Bongos restaurant was really good and their staff was wonderful and very good about giving suggestions and recommendations for local activities and food. We would stay here again.

We stayed for 4 nights, July 15-19. We found the hotel itself to be in good condition and actually quite aesthically pleasing from the outside. The pool was small, but not too overcrowded, but could use more chairs and places to sit. We dined at Spinners one night, which had a gorgeous view of the entire beach. The food was good, but nothing special. We also had drinks at Bongos, which offered live music and an outside bar and was never very crowded which was nice. Our room was great and had a beautiful view of the ocean. Room service only came twice during our stay, but we really didn't mind. The one not so great thing about this hotel is he elevators. I realize there's no real way to fix this, but having only one set of elevators was not ideal. Also, the elevator going up to Spinners and Level 11 has NO AC, and was very uncomfortable. Overall our stay was good and would come back to this hotel and recommend it to a friend.

I love everything about this hotel! Friendly, welcoming staff, beautiful beach, amazing food and nightly entertainment at the best bar on St. Pete Beach. This is my 5th trip and I will definitely be returning!

Hotel is ok, directly on the beach. Room was spacious, had in room coffee maker and fridge. Hallways and elevators have no air conditioning. Elevator to highest floors is like a sauna. Restaurant on top floor has revolving floor, which is cool and bar area on floor just below is very nice overlooks the city, ocean

I went to this resort for a writing retreat weekend and to unwind after a long semester of teaching undergrads. My co-author and I worked in one of the suits with gorgeous ocean views which really helped motivate both of us. We also took time out to walk the beach, get in the ocean, and enjoy the hotel restaurants. It was a great hotel and a great work-cation.

Great location. Each room has a private balcony. Hotel staff was great. No God lots of fun.
