We just got back from a three night visit at the resort. This is probably our fourth or fifth stay and is our hotel of choice when visiting family in the area. The hotel has been stylishly renovated with very comfortable and quiet rooms. It is centrally located across from a marina in downtown St. Petersburg within walking distance to... More

I stayed here for work and was really happy with everything. The room was in the new building and had a great view. A large selection of restaurants were within a short walk. The room was clean and well equipped and breakfast at marchands was great.

Stayed at the Vinoy for my wife's surprise birthday weekend, this is one very classy classic hotel, totally renovated to a very high standard, all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, our room (423) overlooked the front with a view of the harbor. Our bed was the best nights sleep I've had in ages. The breakfast in the morning... More

Wow! What an iconic place but totally renovated. Everything I can say about this hotel is going to be positive. From the moment we drove up it was a magical week. We had great lunches at the restaurant and the pool, as well as great dinners. The lounge was a comfortable place to hang out and have a few drinks,... More

Step back to a time when service was king, luxury was top-notch, and hotels had a fascinating history. The Vinoy is just excellent in every way. Beautiful property...comfy bed...double sinks in the bathroom...charming itty-bitty elevators...and Chihuly glass everywhere! Easy walk to local restaurants and sights, with a trolley (air-conditioned!) stop just out the front door. Snacks in the lobby each... More

My wife and I live in Tampa and every summer we enjoy a visit to the Vinoy, when the rates drop. Truly a most enjoyable facility and downtown St. Pete is entertaining with sight seeing and dinning opportunities. The staff at the Vinoy are top notch and the rooms are very comfortable. Enjoying an evening cocktail on the veranda is... More

Spectacular Hotel- Historic- and restored. Absolutely Stunning Lobby. The Pool is Enormous! We got a Huge room in the original Building. You can see the Harbour from Many Rooms. The only negative and this is my own preference is the bed was super soft- it sucked me in like quicksand! The rest of my family loved it- but I like... More

As you pull-up, The Hotel smacks of old Florida. The large tiled Veranda has rocking chairs and cushioned conversation pits. Once inside, you can see the original beams, high ceilings and décor from the original Hotel but with the added conveniences expected in a Renaissance. We booked a Bay View in the Historical Building which offers a wonderful view of... More

Really nice hotel. Lovely staff - very friendly and helpful. Rooms are slightly dated, but still nice. Very few electrical sockets in the room though so limited options for charging phones, etc. Nice bars and restaurants. Overall, a very pleasant experience

The property feels a bit dated and tired. However the staff and location make up for the physical shortcomings. It is a historic hotel and if you prefer modern, this is not for you. But if you can look past the tired parts and see the charm it may be perfect for you. My room was ver spacious and quiet.... More
