The TripAdvisor page for the Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort is littered with return guests, travelers who love the spacious rooms, complimentary Wi-Fi, and direct beach access, closer to the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico than any other hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Guests can dine in a revolving rooftop restaurant, the only one in the city, showcasing breathtaking, ever-changing views of Saint Pete's, or grab tropical libations and light snacks at the popular beach bar, where locals and tourists mingle regularly. 

Guest rooms have breezy private patios or balconies with views of either the ocean, the bay or the city. Rooms also come equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, perfect for planning day trips or checking reviews for local restaurants and entertainment. The on-site pool overlooking the Gulf is great for cooling off after long days exploring, or grab free loungers and towels and head right for the beach.

Enjoyed Most: Older hotel with some maintenance issues. Water came in from the windows and under the door during heavy rains, which the hotel staff seemed to feel was acceptable.
Other Comments: I paid for a beachfront room, which flooded due to heavy rains. I was moved to a non oceanfront room and requested to be advised once my oceanfront room was made available after the cleanup. Instead the hotel rented out the room for the remainder of my stay and would not reimburse me for the difference in cost, stating that because I had booked online they had no way to refund me.

Enjoyed Most: Everything! The location was great and the beach front bar with live music every day was the best!

Enjoyed Most: Easy access to the beach, great view from our room. But in need of a remodel.
Other Comments: In serious need of a remodel! The tile flooring throughout the hotel is dated and needs updating, the grout that was once white is now black. The entire hotel needs a deep cleaning, there was years of built up dirt where the floors meet the walls. Most areas are quickly cleaned and in need of more attention. Even worse, the service as very poor, most employees seemed like they were in need of a vacation from their jobs. We only ran into a couple of people on the entire staff (front desk, waiters, bartenders, etc.) that were friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed Most: The view from our room. We had booked a city/bay view room and we were pleasantly surprised to have a partial beach view.
Other Comments: All the staff was so friendly. We were greeted by everyone!

Enjoyed Most: The beach area was nice.
Other Comments: The room was small and certainly nothing special, especially for the price. It also was noisy, right next to the wall of the glassed in elevator and you could hear it each time it went up and down. The air conditioning unit was an exterior wall unit, outdated and very noisy. If price was $99. Or less, would maybe stay there again, certainly not for what we paid.

Enjoyed Most: Nice hotel, right on the beach. The highlight was the revolving restaurant on the 12th floor. We got our reservation 30 minutes before sunset and the view was spectacular! Food was great too! We will definitely be going back next year. We got a fantastic rate through TRAVELZOO. Much cheaper than any other travel service.
