5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2014

This small hotel or Bed-and-Breakfast was an ideal stop for us going to and returning from a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. Small, comfortable, quiet, with its own heated pool and a wonderful continental breakfast, this surely is an oasis for an urban traveler. We'd return n a heartbeat, and we'd recommend it unconditionally.

We were pleasantly surprised by the overall appearance of the grounds, rooms and genuine care of the guests. Edward, Keith, Chung and Juan all seemed to go out of their way to make sure that your experience in Ft. Lauderdale and particularly at the Grand Palm Plaza was a pleasant experience and that you would want to return which we... More

Not only was it great surroundings with comfortable rooms and perfect grounds/pool it was the staff that made it the best .

We visited in November 2014. The hotel is in a good location, a short walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. Staff were great. Very friendly, helpful and amenable. The pool is lovely. We would highly recommend and will be back.

Always a sweet location, now tended with style, class and attention to detail. Juan is a superman; never resting to ensure the beautiful grounds are ever immaculate. Edward and Keith made us feel welcome and particularly at leisure when delivering cool towels poolside. I look forward to returning again.

Once again, the Grand Palm Plaza provided an excellent vacation experience. Edward and his staff are accommodating and friendly. Juan is a superlative housekeeper-always thorough and detailed. The resort is very aware of their guest comfort; the furniture is freshly replaced, and the sheets and linens are always fresh and new. We are looking forward to three more visits NEXT... More

Clean, comfortable and quiet environment. Extremely accommodating and friendly staff. Guests respectful of others. Will definitely come back and recommend to others. I said it all in 165 characters but Trip Advisor insists on 200. Go figure.

My partner and I stayed at the hotel several times several years ago because we liked the cozy environment. We went back in September and were really pleased with the makeover the place had received. Nicely decorated and up to date but it still has that friendly feel we loved. It's the kind of place where it's impossible not to... More
