The management at the hotel was poor to say the least. My fiancé and I were staying at the hotel to get a feel for the destination for our wedding. A transient person got a hold of our hotel room number and attempted to charge multiple drinks to our room. After I disputed the charges the bar staff told me...

We stayed this past weekend at the Grand Plaza. Upon arrival, the staff was very friendly. The lobby was nice, however one of the staff members was arguing with a customer about a rate increase. Luckily, we booked on priceline. Several people were upset about their rate being increased without any notification. We had a small room, facing Gulf Blvd....

St Pete Beach has been a yearly destination for being a great walking beach, and the Grand Plaza has been our choice of stay over the years. There is a pleasing air of relaxation not found at the other, larger properties. One big difference is the lines are either shorter or non-existent for cabana chairs, etc. And Spinners Bar and...

It never feels good when you walk into a hotel room and immediately notice that the fitted sheet on the very deep king size mattress does not have big enough pockets. During the night the sheets came up which made for a restless night. The next day the front desk assured us that the sheets would be changed. They were...

We stayed this past weekend for a wedding. The wedding was wonderful and the reception room and everything the staff did in relation to the wedding were too. The hotel itself is a little long in the tooth. The room we were in had a very wierd shape and made movement around the room very difficult. The bathroom was tiny...

Hotel is very unique outside! Made it easy to remember while walking on the beach for hours. Elevators were the biggest down fall, becasue they were incredibly slow. We were on the 8th floor and took the stairs many times! The bed that pulls out from the wall is VERY VERY hard. UGH. The king size bed however was amazing....

Hello everyone! Just recently I had my beachfront wedding at the Grand Plaza. I couldn't have asked for a better staff, location, and everything else. Beach is beautiful, rooms are spacious and clean, and restaurants are really yummy. Views are amazing! Only downside would be the slow elevators. Had to wait sooo long for the elevator to get up to...

Just got back from the Grand Plaza and let me say this, the views are spectacular. It doesn't matter where you are situated, you are bound to see either the bay or the ocean. That being said, the hotel is in much need of being revamped. Exterior paint is peeling, lobby and public spaces are dated,poolside cushions are left out...
