My wife and I retreat to the Vinoy a few times a year for a "stay-cation" to enjoy the wonderful restaurants and beautiful scenery in downtown St. Petersburg. This year we booked a Bay View room for Fourth of July for our entire family, to include two young children. What an amazing experience. I called ahead and asked for a... More

We stayed at the Vinoy for the first time as a weekend getaway and were blown away by the historic beauty of the facility and by the level of gracious service by the entire staff. Everyone from housekeeper to bellstaff smiled and said hello anytime they passed you in the hallway, and if they saw you looking as you needed... More

My office held a function here a few weeks back, and boy was it a disappointment. To start off the day, there wasn't enough parking for even half of our office. People were forced to find parking on the street, at the park, anywhere that wasn't the hotel. Valet was no help here either, simply telling us everything is full... More

Definitely beautiful historic hotel and decor and rooms reflect it. Beds were the best part, very comfortable. Service is what you would expect from a hotel like this. Pool area was very nice with a waterfall. Food and drinks overpriced but you expect that at a Resort of this type. Located in great walking distance for restaurants and bars also... More

Tnbk2009 so great to hear the comment about our beds, we couldn't agree more. We always enjoy hearing about great service (hoping that's what one would expect :) ) On another note we regret that we missed an opportunitty to help you discover something new and exciting. We take pride in getting our guest out of the hotel and helping... More

The hotel is beautiful and it's in a great area, close to the Salvador Dali Museum, the Chilulily exhibit and some great walking areas. The room we had was average, nothing special. My complaint was that they really nickle and dimed their patrons. We were there for a wedding at the hotel, so we received a discount on the room... More

Our trip to the Renaissance started on shaky ground. We arrived on a Saturday and the hotel was a disaster in terms of parking, attention to guests etc. because there was a wedding and half the rooms were booked by the wedding party. My husband is a lifetime platinum with Marriott so we expected to get a room with a... More

The cultural center of St. Pete for 100 years, the refurbished Vinoy has been, and still is, the place to celebrate very special occasions. From it's outstanding location overlooking Tampa Bay and downtown St. Petersburg; its gardens, pools , and tennis courts, and fine classic rooms in the main building or spacious balcony rooms of the Tower...This is the place...

A beautiful old classic hotel. Interior spaces have been refurbished to maintain the original charm but with modern flair. Location is excellent for visiting museums, shops, galleries and restaurants. Most can be reached by foot which is always nice. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Great area for a morning walk. Food and drinks were excellent and prices typical for... More

The Vinoy definitely lives up to its reputation. We spent the extra money for a bay view and were not disappointed. Beautifully and roomy, the rooms were delightful. Everyone was helpful. It was a fully-booked weekend at the Vinoy, and they made sure to stay valet with lots of employees - smart! Fun pool area and free water available all... More

I had no idea what to expect and I was so pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this restored gem! Service was top notch. Rooms were very roomy, well appointed. Toiletries were Aveda-love! Everyone right down to housekeeping were beyond terrific. The only down side is that the pool got very crowded and loud. If you hadn't made your way... More
