“Right On The Gulf”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Stayed for a night at The Grand Plaza, January 2012.
The hotel is older, and showing some age. I had a Gulf-front suite on the 8th floor, with two balconies directly facing The Gulf.
The accommodations are dated, but very clean and comfortable. The service from the Front Desk staff is as good as any 5-star property.
The resort is clean; affordable; and, a very good value for the money. There is no resort fee; or additional charges.
This is a good choice on St. Pete Beach. Great bar and restaurant as well.

Very nice hotel - best on the beach. Staff very accomodating. Great place. It was my first visit but not my last.

My husband and I just returned from our second visit to the Grand Plaza Hotel in St. Pete's Beach and can't wait to go back for a third time. Next go around we are planning on bringing some friends. For the value, you just can't beat this hotel. Thanks to Michelle, our room was oceanview, same as our last one. We had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the beach and the Gulf. Requests for extra pillows and a blanket was fulfilled quickly and our room was sparkling after being made up each day. The hotel has everything you need or want ....beach chairs, towels, water sports, restaurants, bars,a pool. We have stayed in several hotels in the Clearwater/St. Pete area but this is the one we intend to return to. Michelle, at the front desk, couldn't have been nicer and welcomed us back as returning visitors. She accomodated our request for an ocean view room with a smile and friendliness that made us feel like we were family. After a long day on the beach we felt the need for refreshments at the beach bar and were lucky enough to meet Jason, one of the bartenders. He was knowledgable, engaging and very friendly ...really made those apres beach beers taste so good! And, of course, a trip to the Grand Plaza wouldn't be complete without a stop at Spinners, the bar and revolving restaurant at the top of the hotel. Even if you don't want to drink or eat, just go up for the view. Thanks to the entire staff for making our return trip so pleasant and memorable. We'll be back.

We stayed one night at this hotel and our room was facing the ocean. The room was clean and very spacious. One bed folds out of the wall and was very comfortable! I was skeptical as fold outs are not always the best, but this was comfy and a great way to free up space Our son slept on it and had no complaints.
The balcony was big enough for the three of us to sit and enjoy the sun set and beautiful view of the ocean.
The free internet is such a bonus!
It is close to some great restaurants!
I would highly recommend this hotel on St. Pete's beach! The staff were very friendly, the hotel clean and tidy, free parking and the beach is right out the back door!

I just returned from Grand Plaza. My stay was 1/11/12 thru 1/17/12. I found the staff to be more than accommodating from check-in to check-out. I especially found the rooms to be exceptionally clean, amazing windows, with views of the Gulf. The housekeeping staff were wonderful. Beds extremely comfortable. Bongo's on the beach had great food and drinks. This was my first time to the Gulf side of Florida and I will certainly be back. This is a great hotel.

Room Tip: We had ocean front and the noise did not affect us. Your on vacation........give people a break. The...

This hotel is ideally located- walking distance to everything and directly on the beach. We thought it would be perfect for my family of three when we booked a room with a king bed and sofa sleeper. But this is not a family friendly hotel! There are events (weddings, etc) practically every weekend. So, unless you are involved, you hear people coming and going until the wee hours of the morning. The hotel is very noisy - tile floors and the layout means that you hear every door open, every footstep, flushing toilets, music and more; it was ridiculously loud. If you value your sleep, stay elsewhere. And if you are persuaded to stay, avoid the breakfast buffet in the Palm Restaurant- gross!

After three days of having to pay for everything and unfriendly staff in Miami we arrived at the Grand Plaza to find a totally different world. Welcoming staff, free parking, free Internet and an amazing location for starters. The room was clean comfortable and the ocean view (especially at sunset) was superb. I had been a little worried about being above the bar but after retireing to our room after a few drinks and conversations with very friendly staff at Bongos we heard nothing and had a great nights sleep. All in all this is a wonderful hotel and we will definitely be returning our only wish was we had stayed for more than just the one night
