Be Careful with Agoda!”

As per the hotel Agoda does not have access to booking their beachfront rooms. We booked via Agoda the beachfront room and when we arrived they gave us a 3rd floor "partial ocean view" but really our view was the top of the roof of an adjacent building with some sort of a/c units and exhaust fans. Our room was unbearably hot. Unfortunately there was no other rooms available and we had to stay one night in this room that reached 85 degrees as per the thermostat in the room. The hotel was very accomadating and transferred us the next day to a new room with a beautiful partial ocean view on the 8th floor. The staff were all very kind and hospitable. The beach was so serene and the sunset views were amazing. We had dinner at Bongos and it was enjoyable with the outside beach breeze. The food was a little overpriced for the quality. My shrimp tacos lacked flavor. We also had dinner on the 11th floor on our last night and it was the perfect ending to our family vacation.

Very good service! ”

I think that the best thing about this hotel was the incredible service and the access to the beach. The Spinner room was not that great and the food was average. The restaurant next to the beach was much better. The worst thing overall was the cheap pillows. I went home with neck pain. I the hotel spends a bit on new pillows you will help us have a better night sleep. Also, having the balcony on all night was not helping either. I did find a way to turn it off. Originally, this was the hotel for my son’s wedding but we opted for alternate place due to the higher price at Grand Plaza.

Great locations”

Grand Plaza was great. The room view was awesome (8th floor side balcony), it was clean, the king bed felt and slept well. I also had a full size bed in the room along with the king that I didnt use. The floor is tiled which is expected because it's the beach area. The restaurants on the property were all good with good service. The pool area is small but clean, I use the beach the whole trip so that didnt matter much. 25 min drive from the Tampa Mall and 30 mins from the Outlet Mall. The hotel hallway carpet could use replacing but that's about it for a cons. More Pros than Cons, I will return and refer others.

The service of the staff was far above and beyond any of my expectations. They did everything possible to confirm our vacation had the perfect experience. I could not be thankful enough for their attention and accessibility. It is because of this that the Grand Plaza will always be my "Go to" when I'm coming through St. Petersburg!

Great location & value for what we paid”

Hotel is definitely reminiscent of the 1950’s-60’s FL. It could use some serious updating, but our room was adequate, especially for what we paid. The location is phenomenal. We walked to the liquor store, restaurants all around us, went to Publix, CVS, etc. The beach is gorgeous, as are the sunsets. Spinners is cool...definitely an experience, but make sure you make reservations a few weeks ahead of time, especially if you want it for sunset. Pool is small, but we spent our time on the beach. Cabanas & chairs are nice. Overall, for what we paid it was worth it. For the right price I’d probably stay there again.

Overnight stay ”

Brilliant hotel. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Made us feel very welcome. Resorts fees went towards paying for parking. A canbanna or umbrella. Use of towels for the beach which I thought was very worth it. Beach is yards away Brilliant view from top of the roof top bar. Rooms very clean and spacious.

treat ”

I booked this weekend as a treat for myself since I don't get out of town enough. It was a $$ treat but was definitely worth it. Everything went perfectly, the bed was comfortable (there was 2 but I obviously only used 1), the hotel itself (albiet weird looking) was lovely, the staff were friendly, the c cabana had just the right amount of sun, the beach bar was waaay too convenient! the undercover parking in the florida summer sun was a wonderful surprise! the only negative that I was that my booking said Beach front room, but I got a bay and ocean view room. I made the choice not to complain because there were too many other reasons to enjoy the moment than to complain about the view that I only saw for a few hours.

The best part of the hotel is the location as well as the rooftop bar and the beach bar! The hotel is nice but I expected it to be a bit more modern for the price it was per night. Staff, food, and all the services were excellent. The rooms are spacious enough but the best part was my beach view! It was phenomenal!

Our stay was great, room was great with a view. Price was right. Only one mishap AC unit went blowing hot air, engineer up in 5 minutes and fixed, nice job!! Staff around the pool was limited, but if we would have wanted service we could have made it happen. The Red Tide ruined the beach portion of our trip actually included cabana, but we paid for two more friends before we realized beach was inaccessible. That's on us. Lunch for four with one drink about a C note. A Lot to visit nearby.

Dirty room, outdated furnishings and unfriendly staff”

Ideal location with beautiful beachfront property. However our room was dirty with hair everywhere, including all over the floor of the bathroom and on the bedding. It was really disgusting for the money we paid. Housekeeping didn’t sweep our floor the entire week we were there, so piles of sand everywhere. Bedding wasn’t changed the whole week, so lots of sand there too. Yuck. We asked for an extra pillow and never got one. Most of the staff were not friendly and rarely would even smile. They truly seemed overworked and miserable. I believe the hotel is severely overbooked and with multiple weddings everyday, they are not accommodating to hotel guests. I will find another place near St Pete beach next year.
