My boyfriend and I traveled for 2 days to the Grand Plaza. The price was very reasonable at $130 a night, for a king size bed and an ocean/bay view. (We asked for an upgrade but the woman was very kind and stated it was not worth the extra $20 since we already had a partial ocean view) The room was a comfortable size for two and we spent the majority of our time on the balcony taking in the beautiful views.
As for food, the first night we tried Crabby Bill's. It had good food, decent prices and an atmosphere close to Joe's crab shack. The Starlite Diner located next door was very good! I had a breakfast burrito that puts McDonalds to shame. We also ate dinner at Snappers. This is a 5 star restraint with very good food. It was pricey but worth the extra money for some world class seafood. As for Spinners located at the top of the hotel we decided to go up late at night for a drink and dessert. We were disappointed that we could not see the ocean for it was dark and found out that it takes 2 hours to completely rotate. It would be very beautiful to see the sunset if you timed it exactly right.
Overall this was a very good trip. I will definitely consider staying again.
