Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort Hotel & Conference Center

We stayed here for a very short get away. It was important to have 2 criteria met: a balcony overlooking the ocean and being a short walk to the beach. Grand Plaza delivered! The balcony was completely unobstructed, had a bistro-type table and chairs and was perfect to have breakfast while watching the dolphins play!! Every day we were there, we watched dolphins play for hours - after breakfast, we walked on the beach and they were still playing!
As for the proximity to the beach, once we went down the ramp from the deck, we had sand on our toes!! We even dined at Bongos and were right on the beach! The palm trees right at the properties edge were a beautiful detail added for a tropic feel.
My experience with staff and service was OUTSTANDING. The only reason I didn't rate higher was because the building and rooms really need updating. For the price, the resort should have been in better shape (general design updates, new hardware to replace rusty old hardware, fresh paint in rooms and bathrooms, etc.)
I would stay there again, but I'd like to check out some other accommodations next time in hopes of getting exactly what I expect from a resort of comparable cost.
I'd like to close by mentioning how outstanding the staff is. I can't say enough about them!

This hotel is simply fantastic, I have never written a review on a hotel but this deserves it. Staff were excellent, rooms great, but best bit BONGOS!

What ever you do eat and drink there...

Spinners was good also, only negative was our server, Paul. Would not listen to customers, was rude to his colleague in front of us not good. However would not let one bad blip spoil a great great great hotel. Thank you

The hotel is servitude well kept, staff are friendly. The room was ok, as my wife said the room is not cozy.

The number one issue is the noise from the loud music and singing from the outside bar. Make sure to get a a room on a high floor or get it opposite side of hotel if you want some peace and quit.

Arrived just in time to watch a beach wedding. Dinner on the beach at Bongo's was great and they gave out free shooters. We had an "alcove" king room with partial beach view. The room was absolutely wonderful!!! We could lie in bed and see the ocean or sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. The bathroom was very small, but clean as a whistle. Towels were so plush we thought they must be new. Didn't eat at Spinners revolving restaurant as it was too pricey for us.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a "partial view" with a balcony. The Rooms are great.

We stayed 3 nights at this lovely place. The staff was great. The price was right. We had a beautiful view from the 3rd floor. We ate at the onsite beach bar every night...gorgeous view live music and the food was great...burgers, salads, wraps etc. Our bed was very cozy! If you have a large family the room may be a little small but it was perfect for what we needed...will be back for sure!

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.
