We have stayed at the Grand Palm Plaza prior to its recent remodel. A new coat of paint and some new furniture made the place look pretty nice. The staff were very friendly and the room nice and clean. Other than a plumbing hiccup and an ant problem that they alleviated, it was an enjoyable stay. I recommend staying on... More

Our greatest accomplishment is when a guest comments that they were made to feel a home. That's the true definition of hospitality. Clean rooms and a recent renovation make us proud to... More

Do you want a quiet location, a secluded pool and lounge chair area, an air conditioner with a thermostat that really works as it should, and a staff that is willing to talk to the customers about any topic, always trying to answer all questions and solve any possible problems? Then stay here. Edward, Keith, Chhuien, and Juan all added... More

This place is in a great location and comfortable to stay at. Rooms were clean, and the staff was great from check-in to check-out. I'd definitely stay here again. (that is if I don't move to the area first :) ). The Grand Palm Plaza is in a great location just a few blocks from the beach and restaurants. I'd... More

I keep coming back to this place it's just amazing. Staff is just amazing. Rooms are apectacular and can't beat the location. If you in the area have to try this place. 3 blocks from the beach on the most amazing beach of FLL

We have been visiting Ft Lauderdale for years, Driving down from Daytona Beach and staying at various Gay Men's hotels. This one is clean and nice rooms. Nice location and good value. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The only improvement that could be made is the continental breakfast. It should be offered in it's own "Breakfast area", rather... More

I the past, I have mostly stayed at higher-end name brand hotels in the South Florida area. I didn't know what to expect when coming to GPP, but any expectations I had were greatly exceeded. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and looked and felt like they had been renovated just before we came. We were treated to thoughtful amenities such... More
