The Grand Palm Plaza has been our resort choice for 9+ years and counting! We've watched this little piece of paradise change in appearance and personality, and it just keeps getting better. The quaint size of this Floridian gem gives it a charm unmatched by larger properties. We typically have a large group sharing our stay and everyone is treated... More

we stayed a week in this little gay hotel, and loved it from day one. Nice big, clean room with outside balcony, and then the lovely hidden garden with a little pool,where you could sunbathe and swim naked, if you liked. A recent brekfast every morning, and a big grill for use in the garden. EXcellent staff who was always... More

We had a great time, as usual. This hotel is a short walk to the beach. Is close to night life and this is a plus, It is clothing optional. They also have a bbq grill and we cooled out one night. This is a great stay for a couple to get away.

We loved the room. 704...it felt like our own apartment. It was spacious and quiet. The room was well cleaned every day and the pool side service was unexpected....the staff is very nice and helpful. All of the guests were unpretentious which is GREAT.

After twelve days touring the deep south, we stayed a week in Fort Lauderdale. Earlier, we were already in North Village, a nice place, near the beach. The choice for Grand Palm Plaza was based on the good reviews made quickly. Small with 15 rooms and recently refurbished. A nice courtyard with ... lots of palms and a nice pool.... More

I found this hidden gem about two months before our actual vacation and after looking at all the reviews for the other resorts I decided to give them a call. I don't recall who it was who answered the phone that day but he immediately started telling me great Ft. Lauderdale was and how much there was to do there.... More

We arrived early - it was 8 am when we showed up and Keith took us in - he was pleasant, took our luggage and stored it for us. Offered us coffee and breakfast - muffins and cereal, fruit - it is a breakfast that they serve every morning. We went to the beach in the meanwhile but it was... More

This is one of the cutest boutique style hotels in Fort Lauderdale, it is only a few blocks from the beach and a few blocks from all the trendy areas. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they are part of chain of hotels so that you can go to their other locations and use their facilities as well... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the entire experience at the Grand Palm Plaza. Ed and Keith were great hosts and very available to all my needs. Juan does an excellent job in caring for the rooms. The people I met were wonderful. I loved the calm and peaceful atmosphere of the entire experience. My one suggestion is that they review... More
