Stunning venue and beach site, catering staff is great to work with!!
We have worked with the Grand Plaza Resort for over 17 years. The banquet rooms are Awesome! Be sure to check out the Presidential Ballroom - best on the beach. All employees are hospitable - they know how to treat their guests. The sales staff is attentive to brides' and grooms' needs and make their wedding experience perfect! You will be happy you chose the Grand Plaza for your wedding and reception location.
The Grandplaza has the most spectacular view on St. Pete Beach from the Presidential Balllroom. I recommend this room for weddings less than 80 guests, however if you are having a larger wedding, the imperial ballroom is elegant and will wow your guests. The food is unmatched and the catering staff is friendly, professional, and attentive. I give them five stars and highly recommend the Grandplaza to my future clients.
