Stayed 6 nights at The Vinoy with a gorgeous balcony room overlooking the bay in the tower. The most comfortable hotel bed ever. Impeccably clean room and I think the thing that impressed me the most, besides the sheer beauty and history of it all was how friendly and helpful every single member of the hotel staff were. The service... More

This historic hotel is a great property. I had a 3 day meeting and the location is the best for walking to the sites and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and this area of St. Petersburg is easy going. Got a room in the towers with a balcony with a bay view.

A historic hotel in a great location. The Vinoy is in easy walking distance to the pier, parks and attractions on the waterfront. It has comfortable rooms, great staff, and very good amenities. All in all - a very good place to stay.

Classy to the core, huge rooms and the most comfortable beds and bedding I've ever slept in. I'm considering ordering it for my own bed at home and yes they sell it. Also the bath rob is just as comfy, I bought one and brought it home for myself at only $55 dollars. The restaurants just blocks away are all... More

My husband and I stayed at the Renaissance Vinoy in October, 2014 and again January, 2015. I loved this grand hotel the first time, but decided to tour around and really look at this place the second time around. After reading up on the history of this hotel, the decline years, and the renovations that took place, made me appreciate... More

I was booked at this hotel by one of my clients. On arrival, I was so surprised to see such an elegant luxurious facility. My room as like as small apartment. The bedding was plush; the flat screen television angled just right for viewing from the business traveler desk, and the bathroom was over the top.

Leaving the ice box conditions in the mountains of VA, my trip to the Vinoy warmed my heart and my hands! The hotel is luxurious, the staff expert, and the food...yum..yum! The Vinoy's history tour and luncheon is not to be missed.

Wow, where do I begin! What an amazing experience as always. We stayed at the Vinoy once before and couldn't think of a better place to celebrate my husbands birthday! Everything starting from the Valet/Bellstand, to the Front Desk, to our clean room, to the Spa and Marchands......was first class. We loved sitting in the Rocking Chairs on the front... More

My husband & I stayed at The Vinoy for the week of Christmas. We visited friends & relatives in surrounding places, but our "home base" was The Vinoy. It was amazing! So beautifully decorated for the holiday, right across from the park filled with colorful light displays, activities, & Santa. The view from our room was so beautiful. We could... More
