The hotel is beautiful. Historical. We stayed for 5 nights. The beds are extremely comfortable. The staff is very attentive. We dined at the pool, porch, and room service. Room service menu is limited, but, you may order from any other of the restaurants. The fish and chips on the porch was wonderful, hummus was also good. Again, the staff... More

Beautiful resort on the harbor, with different room types and prices. I was here for a work conference; they had two conferences here at once and handled both well. Clean, very comfortable (bed and bedding to die for) well lit and well furnished. They have a pool, hot tub, spa, restaurants, and a huge lobby area. Internet usage is costly,... More

Stayed here for a conference in April 2015. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance to many great restaurants. the hotel restaurants however are overpriced, especially the Sunday brunch. rooms were clean and well maintained. I would return

It was our first time at the Vinoy, celebrating our 27th anniversary, which I mentioned upon checkin. From other reviews, I thought maybe they would do something special for us, but they didn't. It was a lovely room, baseball package was fun, breakfast in Marchands was great. The towels were like sandpaper, which was very surprising for such a posh... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel 5 or 6 times in the last couple of years and this last visit in May of 2015 was disappointing. It's a phenomenal location and property but there seems to be more and more deferred maintenance upon each visit. We were also disappointed with the "pool party" they now throw with... More

Stayed here for a weekend getaway with my family so we could see a couple of Red Sox vs Tampa Rays games (my wife and son are huge Red Sox fans) and had the BEST time here (and BTW the Vinoy is where the team stays...). From pulling up at Valet, to checkout service was superb. Very friendly and knowledgable... More

There is nothing 4-diamond about this hotel. The rooms and amenities are 3 star quality. The restaurants/food are abysmal. Don't even think about paying 40 dollars for that ridiculously meager brunch at Marchand's. The only reason this hotel gets good reviews is because it's "historic" and it's the major/largest hotel in downtown. This hotel in a big city would be... More

Thank you for your recent visit. While we have so many repeat guests and happy customers and receive plenty of positive reviews, we obviously did not meet your expectations, and for this, I am terribly sorry. We certainly hold ourselves accountable to a very high level of service and accommodations, so reading your comments were quite disappointing to us. The... More

This historic hotel has been remodeled to represent the best of historic Florida in a Grand way. Great place to stay to visit the downtown for one of the annual events. Great christmas boat parade, concerts and plays in the area. Baseball games with the Rays stadium nearby.

This hotel is opulent. But the rooms lack a bit of luster the rate commands. Really great staff and the pool is okay. The hotels rooms are average and the furniture could use updating. Overall it's a decent hotel but the price could reflect a more average rating.

The hotel is on the bay and our room in the newer wing faced the boat basin and park. It is a short walk to many restaurants and shop with a relaxed small town Old Florida feel. Service was great, beds extremely comfortable and the room was kept as clean as new. Another quality Marriott property.
