We came to St. Pete Beach for a wedding at the Sirata (next door), but that hotel required a four night minimum and we were staying just three nights. Fortunately, the bride suggested the Grand Plaza and we are so glad she did. The Grand Plaza is so much nicer all the way around! From making reservations to check-out, every staff member we encountered went out of their way to greet, accommodate and ask how they could be of service. We can't rate the customer service high enough!
Our room was gorgeous (much nicer than our friends' rooms at the Sirata) with tile floors, plantation shutters, brushed nickel accents and a large balcony overlooking the gulf - a nice Caribbean feel. Coffee maker, refrigerator, safe and hair dryer were of excellent quality. We also really enjoyed Bongo's on the Beach, the large, quintessential beach bar with a water feature, fire pit, great food and friendly service.
I refuse to stay at hotels where guests are forced to pay for wifi, parking or other amenities that should be include in top rated facilities and the Grand Plaza includes these, which is not the case at the Sirata.
Our only negative was disappointment in the breakfast buffet which was unappetizing and over-priced.
If we return to St. Pete Beach, there is no doubt we will only stay at the Grand Plaza and we will definitely recommend it to friends.
