Love the location! Pool and beach access is great

Posted Jul 31, 2015
Make sure to eat/drink at Bongos. We have gone 2 times and stayed at Grand plaza and we will go back. Join the repeat program - it's well worth getting 10%!

Hotel vlak aan het strand

Posted Jul 30, 2015
Hotel vlak aan het strand met prima restaurants. Door de vele bruiloften in onze ogen niet zo relaxed. Uograde gekegen naar strandzijde, dus schitterend uitzicht. Airco maakt veel herrie en sommige buren houden geen rekening met hun gedrag op de gang.. veel herrie.

Nice Hotel On The Beach

Posted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: Pool, Bongos Bar & Grill, the rooftop rotating restaurant & the beach.
Cons: More specific information regarding hotel room location & view before booking.
Location: Lots of restaurants & beach activities.
Great location & great facilities. Try to get a beach view if you can afford it. We had a parking lot view which was a bit disappointing.

A Great Beach Front Resort Hotel

Posted Jul 24, 2015
Pros: The restaurants, the live entertainment and ambience at Bongos Beach Bar, the friendliness of the hotel staff and the beachfront location
Cons: Keep pool open until 10PM daily instead of 9PM and add more accent lighting in and around the pool area.
Location: Close to shopping, restaurants, grocery store, drug store, beverage store, beach outlet stores
My wife and I vacationed at the Grand Plaza for six nights and we enjoyed every minute. This hotel has a great location...right on the beach and close to shopping, restaurants and attractions. The hotel itself is older but nicely decorated and very well maintained. The service from the hotel staff was always great, they were always very friendly and accommodating.. There are (3) really nice restaurants on the property and the food and drink menu at each were exceptional and more than reasonable.. The beach bar offered free live entertainment both afternoon and evening. Tables were right on the sand overlooking the beach, just a great place to go for drinks, lunch or dinner. Spinners Restaurant sits on top of the hotel and slowly rotates giving patrons a fantastic view of the bay and beach front. Reservations are recommended and well worth the extra expense. Rooms were spacious and bright and very clean. The hotel had daily maid service included in the price of the room also. Each room had its own balcony. We had a partial ocean view and it was more like semi-ocean front. Just a fantastic view of St Pete beach and the ocean. Also Wi-Fi and parking are included in the price of the room. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend to family or friends. We'll definitely will stay there again when vacationing in the Tampa, St. Pete area.

Relaxing in Paradise

Posted Jul 22, 2015
Pros: The Hotel has been well maintained and offers nice restaurants and amenities. Most important was a friendly and efficient staff of employees!
Cons: The only suggestion would be to provide more shaded areas around the pool area to just relax, read a book, get a break from the sun, etc.
.The Hotel Staff was excellent-efficient, friendly, and helpful, The resort has numerous amenities that are as advertised. The room was clean and comfortable. Special praise to the employees and staff-just plain great=Keep it up!

Great location on beachfront

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Hotel isn't bang up to date but it's a really lovely place. The rooms are clean and comfortable and housekeeping visit daily. The hotel is very central and has a greAt location directly onto the beach. It's got a couple of restaurant s though we only ate in Bingo's which is right on the beach. Food was amazing and the staff very friendly and helpful. Don't forget to claim your sunset shooter. I'll happily return next time I'm in St Pete's

Old style hotel on the beach

Posted Jul 19, 2015
Friendly staff. Each room has a private balcony. Room contains basics for a beach vacation. Wish the pool area was larger - could never in the 4 day stay get a lounge chair for sunning.

The only nice thing is the beach.

This is the second time we have stayed here. It is dirty..loud...and they don't provide good customer service. We won't be back.
