“Awesome spot!”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Just came back from my stay at the Grand Plaza In St Pete Beach and it was awesome! We stayed on the 9th floor with views of the beach and the bay on the Bongo's side. If you don't like the noise, ask for a room on the other side but i enjoyed it! This property has a great pool, beach access and Bongo's Beach Bar which is happening all night. There are also lots of beach weddings on the property which is always fun to watch. We are already planning our next trip back to this fun resort and great beach!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the high floors for great views of the ocean and bay!

Booked this hotel a month in advance. Requested beach front view suite and adjoining room on a high floor. When I arrived I was told we had the beach front rooms adjoining but on a floor just over the pool. I was not happy especially after the reservations were made a month in advance they could have accommodated both requests. The manager on duty did try to accommodate us and we were able to get a suite and room on the 6th floor not adjoining but close. She did tell me she did not think I would be happy with the view of the room. She was right it was an end room with a balcony over a roof and the outdoor bar. Charged the same as if it was a direct beach front view. Air conditioner older and loud. Ceiling fan low chains would hit head as we walked by to get to the bed and TV can be viewed by the bed only. Bathroom small. Would not recommend this hotel.

My fiancee ended up suprising me with an early flight into town. Since our room was not ready until the next day, they upgraded us to a penthouse that was gorgeous. The following day we were given our room directly looking out on the ocean and a balcony. It in my opinion was better than the penthouse. We ordered roomservice and danced on the balcony to live music every night. Long walks on the beautiful beach were a daily routine arm in arm. The beds were also super comfy! Would definately return to this beautiful place again! Every employee we encountered said hello and was super friendly! Loved this place!

We can not say enough wonderful things about our stay at the Grand Plaza Hotel! From the start when Michael helped us with our luggage, to the wonderful dining experiences, we can not say enough about our stay. The staff at the desk went above and beyond to help us with our needs. Our room was immaculate and there were always clean towels for the pool! The outdoor Bongo Bar was a fun place with great food and service, especially Rob...he took good care of us. The staff constantly asked us how our stay was and if there was anything we needed. There is plenty of parking and the morning coffee in the snack room was great! The pool area was clean and the rest rooms were immaculate. We did have an issue with the AC in our room, but it was fixed and running within 20 minutes. If you are looking for great views, wonderful service and a great staff, you should stay at the Grand Plaza. We can not wait to go back.

Room Tip: If you want a wonderful view get an ocean view or even a partial city, partial ocean view is wonderf...

Booked on Hotel tonight and stayed one night. The staff at the hotel was very friendly and everyone we encountered said hello and asked how our stay was. Sherry at the front desk was entering my reservation in the computer when I walked in five mins past making it online. She was great and upgraded us to the Penthouse after we inquired if our room would have a view. We were facing northwest and had a great view up the beach. The room had an king sized poster bed, a sofa, chair, end tables, closet with a safe and a flat screen tv in an amoire. En suite full bath with a jacuzzi tub. There was a vestibule into the room with a half bath and a small kitchen area with a microwave, fridge and coffe maker. Only downside was no dishes or flatware, upside wineglasses. As stated in other reviews the property is older and the furniture is starting to show some signs of wear, but that is to be expected.
The pool outback has a fair amount of lounge chairs, towels are available at the front desk. The area of beach where the property is located is quite wide and there is a seperate vendor renting chaise lounges and cabanas on the beach for $25. I do think a beach front property should provide chairs on the beach for guests, but I did not ask the conceirge so they might.
We spent most of our time at the pool and in at Bongos the beach bar. Both very enjoyable.
Overall I would stay at this property again, I base that on the view, the beach bar, and the the staff. Sharon at the front desk. Sherry, who is like the heartbeat of that place. Mike the bellhop and Stephan at Bongos(I will review Bongos seperately too). It was refreshing to stay somewhere where the staff are happy, and they pass that onto their guests.

Room Tip: Rated room as average due to age.

We started our Florida vacation with trouble at the rental car. {Advantage rental car in Orlando} NEVER GO THERE!. Anyway we finally got a car and the Grand Plaza was our first stop. The staff there was Awesome! Especially Chris! It is an older Hotel but the upkeep is really fantastic. It's a beautiful place right on the beach. It has an awesome little Tiki bar that has live music everyday. we felt relaxed and enjoyed it tremendously! The Hotel has a rotating restaurant on top and has breathtaking views. We will be back! Thank you Grand Plaza! You Rock!!!

Stayed for 2 nights following an day at Busch Gardens ( Approx 20 miles away )

We had a 700 sq ft - 9th Floor room overlooking the beach - WOW! Loads of space, 2 balconies and 3 beds. Good rates offered both online and within the hotel.

Room Service was excellent and very efficient and prompt when called upon.

The location on the beach was perfect for our older children enjoy either the pool or sea. Bongo's bar and cafe on the beach offered a reasonably priced menu all day and night along with live entertainment from different musicians daily.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the St Pete's beach area.

Thanks

Room Tip: Get a room on a high floor overlooking the beach.
