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

Grand Palm Plaza is one of a family of resorts mostly for gay men. My husband and I were looking for a place to stay prior to an upcoming cruise in January 2016 and wanted to give this hotel a test run. The hotel is located fairly close to the beach--an easy 5 minute walk. When we arrived we met... More

Clean, precise and friendly people, both in staff and guests. Great place to relax and decompress. Frozen grapes at the pool with cooled Jasmine towels. They really know how to take care of the guests

Friendly, quaint with amazing staff. A few blocks from the Sebastian Street beach and Casablanca Cafe. And they serve frozen grapes and lavender scented towels poolside! Love that small but cool touch that most resorts wouldn't even think of!

We spent 6 days at the GPP and just loved it. When we arrived we actually got a room that was a little small for two people with two big suitcases (having traveled from Europe) but the next day we could move to the suite for just a small extra charge. Everything that has been mentioned here before concerning the... More

I had made inquiries to several hotels in this area. Many of the others looked good, but this one looked better. I liked the way the resort presented itself. I liked the way the summary material was written. The staff, to a person, was as professional as you could need yet personable. If it is important to you to have... More
