Hi Charles! Thanks for the five star review. We are glad you chose The Grand Palm Plaza to celebrate your birthday weekend. Good to hear you had a great time as much as we enjoyed having you.

Do you want a quiet location, a secluded pool and lounge chair area, an air conditioner with a thermostat that really works as it should, and a staff that is willing to talk to the customers about any topic, always trying to answer all questions and solve any possible problems? Then stay here. Edward, Keith, Chhuien, and Juan all added...

We have been visiting Ft Lauderdale for years, Driving down from Daytona Beach and staying at various Gay Men's hotels. This one is clean and nice rooms. Nice location and good value. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The only improvement that could be made is the continental breakfast. It should be offered in it's own "Breakfast area", rather...

My only complaint is that we only were able to stay one night. The hotel exceeds expectations on value and friendly, accommodating staff. The area is seeing tons of investment saving these great mid century complexes and is very close to the beach, restaurants, and a short drive or cab ride to Wilton Manor. Our travel plans worked out in...
