Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort Hotel & Conference Center

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.

Keith Bolling went above and beyond to help us at both breakfast in the Palm Harbor room and lunch upstairs. He did a great job. He was always hustling and making sure things got done correctly. The staff in general was very helpful. The hotel is old and has some issues but the view is great

The hotel is dated but well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was good and reasonably priced. The drink prices were way overpriced at Spinners. The hotel is right on the beach. Their beach side bar Bongos was very good, good drinks, food, and staff.

Unfortunately, there is a very big negative if you stay here, the evening noise. Every night, there is live music. The first night, the music was not too loud and only went on until 10 PM. The second night of our stay, the music still was not too loud, but it went on until after midnight. Our last night there was the worst. The music was so loud, it shook our hotel room windows, and we were on the 8th floor. The music was not from this hotel but from the resort next door. I reported this to our hotel manager that evening. She told us that they have had problems with the noise from the resort next door. She said she had called over there several times that night. Unfortunately, the music was never lowered, and the music that night didn't stop until after 11 PM. Upon checkout, the hotel did give us a partial credit for this inconvenience. Although a nice hotel with a great staff, we will never stay here again unless the noise problem is corrected.

Great place to stay!!! Bongos is a great place to eat lunch or dinner with your toes in white sand staring at the Gulf of Mexico!! We witnessed two different beautiful weddings while eating dinner!! Hotel staff was awesome. Had a room with full view of the beach and the gulf!! Too beautiful to describe!!

Absolutely a first class hotel experience. Strongly recommend this place. Gorgeous beach, clean hotel, amazing restaurant experience at "Spinners", which rotates and overlooks the beautiful area, the staff was professional and the cost was very reasonable for the experience. I will be staying here every time I visit.

The best trip to St. Pete Beach. I have been visiting St. Pete Beach many times a year for the past 25 Years. I have never stayed in a better hotel. From the accomadations to everyone of the staff, and to the smallest detail this hotel was really amazing. I will never stay at any other resort on St. Pete Beach. Our stay was wounderful.

Room Tip: Be sure and visit Bongos Beach bar. Food and drinks are great.
