Stayed here around spring break which meant everywhere was quite busy. Hotel was fine, pretty well located for the main bits of town and well located for the beach (walk in). Room was adequate and clean and breakfast was decent; the staff were friendly and helpful. Can't really complain apart from the hotel being a little tired in its decoration, not the sort of thing which bothers me massively in a hotel to be honest, but some might be more bothered.

Our Location and easy beach access are definitely one of our most favorable attractions for our Resort and Spa. We greatly appreciate your business and your time spent to review us on trip advisor. We are doing several upgrades and improvements to our historic décor of the Resort and Spa. For instance, we have constructed a brand new seating area in our Veranda Lounge that now overlooks our pool and beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. Please come back to see us soon and enjoy these newly renovated amenities.
Best and Kind Regards,

When you say the word "Daytona", one thought always comes to my mind is the beach. Daytona beach is different than many beaches as it is a popular spot where you can ride your vehicle on it, park and have a festive day enjoying the sun and water. Night life is also an attraction where there are plenty of restaurants and clubs available to keep the typical visitor happy.

Earlier in November we had the chance to get away for a few days and decided to seek the solitude of the ocean. My qualifications for a place to stay had to include a great central location, clean facility and rooms, easy parking and of course a fair price.

If you ventured the Daytona beach coast, there certainly are a lot of places to choose from. Some of which seen better days and for others, can be very spendy. For myself I look for good value and am certainly particular in cleanliness. This past visit we decided on staying at the Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona FL.

It has been a year or so since we stayed there, it seems that there is a bit of renovation going on. Although this handy work does not disturb the facility, merely, they are modernizing rooms making them even more enticing. The main lobby is elegant yet Victorian in a way; I love it. The rooms are generous in size and accommodations but more importantly, they are clean.

Perhaps one of the most important aspects of the Plaza Resort is its location. Like many of the hotels in Daytona, it is located on the beach. You can easily walk out of the hotel and onto the sand within minutes. Once on the beach, you are immersed with miles of coastline. If the beach does not suit your fancy, there are shops, restaurants and clubs that are in walking distance from the resort as well. To me, this is key as it gives the Plaza Resort that central hub feel.

During our stay we ventured on foot to Joes Crab Shack and later some of the local shops. The hotel also has restaurant and a bar (with a ghost). I did mention the ghost as we were told about it and it is on their website. Although we did not see anything of any sort (bummer), it was just great conversation to say the least. If you are looking for a great place to stay that is central to the beach, merchants, night clubs and restaurants, the Plaza Resort and Spa is a great place to experience it all.

Room Tip: Ocean room king with a balcony always gets my vote.

I stayed 3 nights at the Plaza in early November and never had to move the car. Beautiful hotel with large pool deck right on the beach. Great views from the balcony of a nicely appointed upper room. Upscale restaurant and lounge, food was good - not great. I was attending an event and we found the banquet rooms to be very large and accommodated our large crowd quite well. Valet parking is included with the room and the attendants, bellmen and front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for an upscale hotel in Daytona Beach.

Room Tip: Choose a room as close to beach side as you can get and an upper floor for the best view down the be...

Although I did not stay at the Plaza yet, I was impressed by the service and the restaurants there. At Magnolia's and the Veranda, the service was excellent and the food was outstanding. I did not use the spa, but there were several recommendations to use it. The hotel is beautiful. Everyone seemed happy there. I would like to go there in the future to stay for a week. The location is convenient.

This hotel is very nice and the staff is amazing. My only issue was the pigeon poop and the pigeons hanging out on the balcony. My recommendation would be to screen in the balconies or hire a company to deal with them.

We had the luxury of staying at The Plaza for almost a week in early September. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms were very spacious. Everything that was on their website was true! I was not disappointed by anything. The staff were gracious & extremely helpful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. We spent a lot of time on our balcony enjoying the ocean breezes. The location to the beach was amazing. This hotel did not disappoint & exceeded our expectations. I really liked that we had a mini "kitchenette" with ample storage, sink, small refrigerator & microwave. The location was perfect to drive into Orlando, walk down to the pier, or relax on the beach or poolside. I can't wait to come back.
