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...

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...

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...

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...

The staff at Grand Palm was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, and the housekeeping staff cleaned very well. Quiet, laid back atmosphere. Within comfortable walking distance to the beach. It would be nice if the continental breakfast was expanded.

The Grand Palm is a nice alternative to the large hotels in the area. While it is not right on the beach it is close enough that you can walk there easily.
