Spectacular views. Spinner's restaurant was delightful. Great food, service, and sunset. Enjoyable after dinner drink at Bongo's with live music and feet in the Gulf sand. Room on 9th floor was nice with outdoor patio. Great views! Staff was attentive and helpful. We will be back soon.

Room Tip: higher the better for delightful views

Very nice enjoyable place to stay. Absolutely wonderful view of the sun setting on the gulf. The beach was great and the water was clean (believe it or not). Only thing bad that I can say about the hotel is it needs to be updated a bit. For the price they charge I would think that the rooms would be a little nicer than they were. But overalll I really cannot complain. Again the view was really worth it. The hotel staff was excellent!!!

First impression we thought it's OK, but the minute we stepped into the room we fell in love. Nice design, clean, balcony, water view... All nice.
Second surprise was when we went to have a bite on the top view restaurant we found out that it is a 360 degree rotating restaurant and the menu was not too expensive either.
Third nice surprise was the bar on the beach where you can eat and drink with your feet in the sand and listen to live band playing.
The fine white sandy beach was not too crowded because it was October so it was easy to use the cabin for free after hours, otherwise it will cost $20!
Breakfast was not included and cost $10 each.

Room Tip: If ocean view was too expensive, don't hesitate to choose bay view room, at least you can open...

we are a family of 3 and stayed here for 4 nights in September. Cannot fault the staff. They were very friendly and helpful at all times. We chose a gulf view room and the view was spectacular. Only downside was the room was a bit tatty and very cramped when the second double bed was lowered. Considering the cost of the room I would have expecteted it to be a bit larger in size. We was staying on the 5th floor and the noise from Bongo's was a bit too much at night. Having said that, it was the weekend so go with the flow. No problem during week nights. Didn't get to eat at Spinners due to the hour and a half wait most nights so we opted for food at Bongo's beach bar which turned out to be a great choice. Breakfast at the hotel was ok but nothing special so we walked over to the nearby IHOP a few mornings. Pool area was very clean and tidy but a bit small for the number of guests staying. Beach cabanas are a bit pricey. We were lucky enough to see a few sunset weddings on the beach at the hotel which were amazing. All in all a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as high as possible with a gulf view and not on the Bongo's side

Grand Plaza Hotel,
Noah and I can’t express enough how fantastic and attentive all the staff was during our wedding weekend and most of all the day of our wedding. The staff that organized the room, it looked amazing. The food was fantastic and everyone is still raving about the whole weekend. Our wedding went absolutely perfect, all of our guests, Noah and I had an amazing weekend and could not get over the level of service that all the staff in the hotel provided. By the sounds of it, several of our guests are plan on returning for a night or two stay. Our father from Colorado is planning a trip next year and is guaranteed to stay there for a few weeks.
We would like to especially thank Gloria Zac (wedding coordinator) Anthony Harvard (Manager) and the fun guy, whom has been working there for years, Michael at the concierge desk. They went above and beyond our expectations at the Grand Plaza Hotel. Again, the whole weekend was 100% perfect. We are so happy that we chose the Grand Plaza Hotel as our wedding venue. We will definitely recommend the Grand Plaza Hotel to anyone looking for a great place to eat and stay in St. Pete.

The Grandplaza is a great place to stay! The bathrooms could use updating and are pretty small but the rooms themselves are very spacious and great views of the ocean. The beach bar has a huge menu and not just the typical "fast food". The staff was very accomodating whether at the front desk, restaurant, or beach bar. They also have servers constantly there to wait on you while lounging at the pool. We also attended a wedding while we were there as well as watched several others. Everything was handled so professionally down to the last detail. We'd definitely stay there again!

We had our wedding at the Grand Plaza and then stayed a few days afterwards. The staff was amazing. They are super friendly and made us feel like family. Or wedding planner Jenn was very calming when we were stressed. The rooms were beautiful. Great views. When my wife called the front desk for a patio door that wouldn't close, someone responded within 5 minutes to fix it. Our wedding guests had an equally great experience. My wife and I are planning to go back for weekend getaways. We recommend the Grand Plaza to anyone who wants a great time on the beach. The grand plaza is the only place for us in St. Pete

Room Tip: Ocean view is the best. The suite was very spacious
