It was our 4th time at this establishment and we very much enjoyed it. A small hidden gem and very affordable!! We both are athletic and maintain active lifestyles even on vacations which entails walking around in order to have an authentic local experience. We prepare our own breakfast/lunches. Chris and I enjoyed going out for the run in the... More

Pleasantly surprised at the facility and the room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The staff were awesome and even went above and beyond to help me with some real estate transactions I needed printed, scanned and emailed. Very friendly and helpful too in every way.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were nice, clean, and modern. I gave it a "Excellent" rating for what you pay for. Yes, the St. Regis or W are nicer, but the Grand Palm Plaza was friendly, cozy, very clean, and welcoming. It was such a relaxing and positive experience. I am not a very social person,... More

This place could be such a little gem, but apparently the owner, who has bought up serveral properties in Ft. Lauderdale, perhaps for future development, appears to have no interest in spending money on the place. The different on-site managers are certainly friendly, but friendly doesn't buy repairs and upkeep, frienldy doesn't buy reliable and thorough housekeeping and grounds keeping,... More

Booked this accommodation having seen it on line, but should have avoided it having read some of the very negative reviews. On booking, our tariff included breakfast however on arrival we were told that this was no longer the case, breakfast comes as an extra charge? We went for our first meal at The North Village Cafe and ordered a... More

This was our second time staying at GPP and we were just as impressed this time as we were before! The hotel is so inviting and the people who work there are always so kind. Keith is a gem and really made us feel at home 😊. We've recommended this hotel to friends, they're so excited to check it out!... More

During our stay we had no WIFI, mold in the bathroom and loud music playing during the night. Staff is only limited present. We were charged $ 114.00 for the room when the rate was offered $79.00 online.
