Grand Palm Plaza
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Do you want a quiet location, a secluded pool and lounge chair area, an air conditioner with a thermostat that really works as it should, and a staff that is willing to talk to the customers about any topic, always trying to answer all questions and solve any possible problems? Then stay here. Edward, Keith, Chhuien, and Juan all added their touch to this place, each in his own way. You'll be happy you stayed with them.

This place is in a great location and comfortable to stay at. Rooms were clean, and the staff was great from check-in to check-out. I'd definitely stay here again. (that is if I don't move to the area first :) ). The Grand Palm Plaza is in a great location just a few blocks from the beach and restaurants. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a nice, friendly place to stay.

I keep coming back to this place it's just amazing. Staff is just amazing. Rooms are apectacular and can't beat the location. If you in the area have to try this place. 3 blocks from the beach on the most amazing beach of FLL

We have been visiting Ft Lauderdale for years, Driving down from Daytona Beach and staying at various Gay Men's hotels. This one is clean and nice rooms. Nice location and good value. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The only improvement that could be made is the continental breakfast. It should be offered in it's own "Breakfast area", rather than opposite check in. So all things considered, my suggestion is trivial.

I the past, I have mostly stayed at higher-end name brand hotels in the South Florida area. I didn't know what to expect when coming to GPP, but any expectations I had were greatly exceeded. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and looked and felt like they had been renovated just before we came. We were treated to thoughtful amenities such as a fridge, silverware, microwave, beach towels, and even bathrobes. Continental breakfast was more than adequate. The hotel even allowed us to borrow beach umbrellas and chairs so we did not need to bring our own. The landscaping was well-done, and the pool area was attractive and clean.
Perhaps the highlight of the stay was getting to know the very helpful, friendly, and attentive staff, including the management and housekeeping. Once again, any expectations were exceeded. I look forward to staying again and recommend to all looking for similar accommodation.

Room Tip: Our room was a corner room and was perfect.

My only complaint is that we only were able to stay one night. The hotel exceeds expectations on value and friendly, accommodating staff. The area is seeing tons of investment saving these great mid century complexes and is very close to the beach, restaurants, and a short drive or cab ride to Wilton Manor.

Our travel plans worked out in a way that we were going to be in Ft. Lauderdale on our second day until 5 p.m., well after a normal check out. Edward, the General Manager, was incredibly accomidating by offering us options to allow us to continue our stay until our transportation arrived. For a small fee a 3 p.m. check out can be arranged (depending on check ins). He was also kind enough to offer to let us check out at the normal time, hold our bags in the office, and allow free use of the pool for the afternoon. We were even offered use of a shower after the pool, and had cool lavender towels and frozen grapes brought to us poolside. Receiving this level of attention, even after check out, should be pretty telling how seriously they view the importance of hospitality at Grand Palm Plaza.

Great experience all around. Recently remodeled rooms are very clean. Pool is heated to a perfect just barely cool temp. Definitely coming back.
