We booked two rooms for our party of 5 for three nights in March 2008. We were pleasantly surprised that one of the rooms was upgraded from a bay view to a Penthouse. Both rooms were nice. The Penthouse room was quite large, with a beautiful king-size four poster bed. Bathroom had a jacuzzi, and there was a separate powder... More

Considering the hotel is rated a 3-star, we were absolutely pleased with our stay at the Grand Plaza. This were our observation during our stay in March: Check-in: Nice looking lobby although there's no mistaking that this is not a 5-star hotel. Our room wasn't ready but Michael the concierge took our bags and the front desk staff said they... More

I stayed at the Grand Plaza from March 9-13. This building used to be a Holiday Inn hotel. I was visiting family in the St. Pete Beach area and wanted a place close to them that didn't cost a fortune. The Grand Plaza fit the bill, and I was lucky to get it considering March is peak season. I had... More

The rooms are your typical beachfront hotel rooms...very average....In previous reviews people did complain about the tile floor but I actually prefer it to carpet...more sanitary then a dirty hotel carpet that never...

After visiting the websites of many other hotels we decided to investigate the Grand Plaza. We called them directly and got a better price package than we found anywhere online. The room was fine and the view excellent. The bed was super great. We enjoyed the rooftop restaurant revolving around at sunset...and found the food good there. The breakfast buffet... More

I stayed at the Grand Plaza with my family. We had a rental car and the parking was free. Our room was lovely but the bathroom was very small. We had a cute balcony facing the bay. Because we came on the coldest day of the year, we had to use the heaters and they didn't keep us warm because... More

I was at this hotel for a quick overnight because of a meeting, and I think maybe I'm just used to hotels that cater to business travelers. Overall, the decor was a little bit Golden Girls, and the places to eat at the hotel were typical when compared to the other nearby resorts, but still lower quality and less healthy... More

Booked with Priceline. I will not use them again unless they contact me to fix this situation. And I have used Priceline many times IN THE PAST. Anyway, I will NOT stay there ever again. I will say the bed was very very comfortable. The location was good but that's it for positive comments. The first room they tried to... More

From the moment my husband and I arrived at the Grand Plaza, we had nothing but wonderful experiences. Maddy at the front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant. Check-in was a breeze. Maddy gave us a free upgrade without us even asking. This was our second stay at the Grand Plaza. We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay, but this exceeded... More
