“Great summer weekend!”
Reviewed July 1, 2007

My family came to stay last weekend at The Grand Plaza. We had a very
beautiful room, which had two balconies. A very comfortable king bed,
a comfy double bed as well as a Murphy pull down double..The staff was very friendly, Michael made two restaurant suggestions which both
worked out well for dinner and breakfast. Try this place it is great!

Stayed July 2007

Had a Great time. The whole staff was very nice and ready to help anyway they could. Room was clean and the lady who did our house keeping was GREAT!!! She even washed our dirty dishes. I have never stayed any place where the housekeeping did that on there on. Breakfast buffet was also good for Florida. Had a funky smell to the place but I know that was from what they mopped the floors with so it didn't bother me cause that meant it was very clean. Will be staying there again the next time there. Glad to see that St. Pete Beach doesn't have all those nasty looking condo's going up... Keep it looking the way it looks now!

We just returned from a few days on St. Pete Beach. Being native Floridians and coming from just down the road, we knew St. Pete Beach is a great place...this was our first stay at the Grand Plaza Beachfront. I was a little concerned because I typically stay at Hilton or Marriott. I was pleasently surprised. Although you can tell that it is an older building, it has been updated and is nice.
The front desk staff was nice and check in was quick. We were allowed to check in about an hour before typical check in time. When we arrived to the 6th floor room the cleaning staff was there because it had not passed the management inspection so we were quickly moved to a different room with a MUCH better view of the water. No complaints here! The bed was comfy, the balcony was perfect for an outdoor dinner.
Great place for a trip with the husband and kids!!
The bedding was wonderful...no old fashioned, unsanitary bedspreads, i loved the tile flooring, the electronics were up to date, free internet connection was nice!
The pool was sparking and very well kept, the drinks from the outdoor bar and grill were delicious, and the steps to the beach were TERRIFFIC!!!!
It's not the Ritz but it was very affordable for beachfront, comfortable rooms, and we will most certainly visit again!

  • Liked — The location to the beach!!! Steps to the water.

Just returned from a girls trip and college reunion at The Grand Plaza. While the Grand Plaza is not a luxury hotel, it was a very pleasant surprise! The staff are exceptionally nice and helpful. The room was clean, charming and pleasant. You can't BEAT the location nor the price! I LOVED stepping out onto the beach four times a day!
My only gripe would be that Spinners (the penthouse bar and restaurant) had a GREAT view, but there was on odd odor in the dining room. My wine also tasted old and stale. Otherwise a GREAT time!

Stayed here for a "girls trip" after staying at the sister hotel. This is a beautiful hotel! Friendly staff. Clean room! The downside of this hotel, Spinners, the restaurant upstairs, has such potential.. It was dirty, staff unattentive, doing constuction during dining hours.. When this place is closed 11pm-11am, you'd think that is when they'd choose to do their construction.. Overall, try The Grand Plaza..!!

Just came back from a short stay at the Grand Plaza. While this hotel is not up to par with some of the finest world class resorts in Florida & the Caribbean; it has a great location - is a very good hotel - and it's an excellent value. Staff was very polite and helpful. The food at the beach bar was very good and the food in the revolving rest. at the top of the hotel was even better. You can't beat the location - right on the beach. This is a 40 year old hotel but it has been fairly well maintained and is in good shape. My room was clean and the A/C was strong. The complimentary toiletries were good and the cable TV has lots of channels including HBO. In fact the most disappointing thing about my stay was the Soprano’s final episode which I watched on the free HBO in the room. All in all this is a hotel I'd go back to again without hesitation. If you don't mind a slightly older hotel - this is the place to stay on St. Pete's Beach.

  • Liked — It was clean, had a great location, staff was friendly and it was priced right.
  • Disliked — Older facility (40 years old) and the small swiming pool.

The location is really great, we had a partially ocean view room, nice balcony, but the room wasn't in very good condition. Only half of the bulbs are working, you had to wear shoes all the time because the floor was so dirty and the bathroom... We bought sanitizing spray to use the shower! Better not try the breakfast buffet, it's not even worth the 9.90. But as I said, the location is amazing, the beach wonderful, even if you have to leave the rented cabana (20$) already at 4:30...
