Whether barefoot in khakis or in the finest of formal wear, guests love the opportunity to participate in nuptials as the sun seemingly sizzles away, afterwards adjourning into one of several beautiful ballrooms.

The Imperial Ballroom, located only a few steps from the powdery white sands of St. Pete Beach, allows seating for up to 200 guests. Large arched French doors frame the perimeter; opening to an outdoor marble patio that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico, this ballroom allows the beach atmosphere to flow into the room effortlessly.

With floor to ceiling windows this ballroom offers the most amazing views of St. Pete Beach, capturing every color of the sun as it sets into the Gulf of Mexico. Seating up to 118 guests, draped in white curtains and furnished with enchanted chandeliers this ballroom creates a look of a fairy tale dream come true.

With the Destination Wedding becoming ever so popular our wedding packages offer couples the choice of mini ballrooms which seat up to 40 guests.

We could not be more happy with the choice we made in selecting Grand Plaza as our wedding venue! First of all, the location is splendid! Our wedding coordinator was Tori and she was an absolute DREAM to work with! She was so friendly, organized, and helpful! She went above and beyond for us. Grand Plaza is a wedding machine- but in the best way! You can fully expect that even at this busy venue, your special day feels so private and it's like you're the only wedding they're concerned with. The staff was remarkable! All of our guests raved about how nice and helpful everyone was. And the food- DELICIOUS! We used the Crystal Ballroom of our ceremony and the Imperial for our reception and both spaces were pristine and delightful. We even stayed at the venue in a Penthouse suite and the view was to die for! We couldn't have been happier with the level of service and care that Tori and everyone at GP provided to us. They truly helped make it the happiest day of our lives!

Excellent location and help. This venue does over 600 weddings per year and it shows. They know exactly what they are doing. Amanda was more than helpful with everything we needed. She walked us through each step, even after we were a bit unresponsive (our fault entirely). Everything went smoothly and Grand Plaza was always there to help out. If you are looking for a beach wedding, look no further. The venue, location and staff are all amazing.

We had our wedding at the Grand Plaza on 04/15/16 and everything was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations. We booked the venue because we fell in love with the view from the Presidential Ballroom, we knew we wanted a beach ceremony, and because Tatyana had been so helpful and responsive with our initial questions. Tatyana was our wedding coordinator throughout the whole process, and she went above and beyond. She was quick to respond to all of the questions I had, and she was just lovely to work with. I am so grateful for Tatyana as well as the entire hotel staff for making our wedding weekend so wonderful. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding, I highly recommend the Grand Plaza! We had about 60 guests in the Presidential Ballroom, and it was perfect for us.

Tatyana from the Grand Plaza helped my husband and I have the small destination wedding of my dreams. We originally had a rehearsal dinner scheduled at bongos but due to bad weather they moved it inside for us pronto. The next day the weather was absolutely beautiful and we had our ceremony on the beach and our reception in the presidential ballroom. I can't tell you enough how much I appreciated Tatyana's professionalism, responsiveness and calm demeanor on the day of.

What a wonderful wedding we had! The view from the presidential ballroom says enough itself! Our ceremony was flawless along with our food etc. Tori was amazing at helping us out, corresponding with us, and organizing our day. We also had the glam room for the day of the wedding which was a plus that many other venues do not offer. Like I said the view alone did it for me but the staff, food, location, and accommodations made it that much easier to choose the grand plaza.

I'm not sure where to start, but the Grand Plaza was awesome.
From the start we had Gloria as our Catering Manager. I was feeling Reception Venue searching fatigue by the time I met her. My parents had met with her prior to me and were singing Gloria praises. My husband and I then came to visit and it was honestly Gloria who sold us on the Grand Plaza. She was just so organized, direct, and flexible. I like to say I'm not a good bride because wedding planning was a hassle to me. I knew I wanted a place that would leave little for me to plan and someone who could help me make decisions without wavering, since I can be so indecisive, but at the same time be open and flexible to my wishes - that whole package was Gloria.
Nearing the end of our planning we switched to Hilary. Between myself, Gloria, and Hilary, there must have been 75 emails. They were wonderful and prompt and would even calm my worries, even if it was something as small as the way our napkins were folded. Gloria was there for our wedding reception and I cannot even say how incredible it was. I am still feeling the high from my wedding reception. The food and food tasting was absolutely on point - and I need to mention here that even our waitress at our food tasting was so incredibly kind and encouraging. The whole staff made me feel at east and actually excited about this wedding planning thing. The room was set-up beautifully and the view is perfect. Everything was met to our standards, and we got so many compliments on our wedding.
Beyond the wedding itself, we also got a ton of compliments about the hotel. We had mostly out-of-towners, and not for a second were they bored because of all the things to do. As I said the ALL the staff of the hotel were gracious hosts and everyone could relax and enjoy themselves. We even had a dance party at Bongos the night before because the music was just so fun. My wedding was absolutely perfect and I could not have done it without the Grand Plaza.

I would like to give 5 stars to this venue and Tori! I came in from out of town, not really knowing what to expect. We had planned the whole wedding via email. When I had arrived everything was decorated nicely, we were actually upgraded to a larger room at the last minute and the entire staff was top notch. I would recommend the venue to anyone and the people who helped put the event together obviously had done this a time or two :) We brought in a large bike for photos and the Grand Plaza stored it for us. Any questions were answered and addressed promptly. Can not say enough!
