I love this place it's so breath-taking from the front lobby to the bar, restaurant and conference rooms. Every time I come here, I'm amazed at this resort. The pool area is absolutely fabulous with such an awesome staff who are great. If you want to go an event this would be the venue

My wife and I spent 5 nights here as one step in a multi-faceted 40th Anniversary celebration...and were disappointed with our room due to a faulty AC issue. The matter was reported to the front desk twice and was to have been resolved, but was not. To the hotel's credit, I did receive a follow up call from Emily at... More

stayed there on business for 2 nights and was very comfortable. The hotel is nicely furnished and the room was spacious. located next to their marina and close to some good restaurants and shopping. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. This is the third time I've stayed there and certainly would again.

Beautiful and historic in downtown St. Petersburg. Just a walk across the street to thew water, to a strip of restaurants, ice cream shops, shopping and museums. There is a nice sidewalk and park to walk through and also has movies in the park on certain nights. The hotel rooms are wonderful, excellent bedding and nice restaurant. The pool has... More

Very nice older resort. Overall service was very good with large clean rooms. But the food service was very slow! We were in a group of about 20. And had preordered lunch the day before. And still took over an hour for us to be served and finish lunch. The food was very good! But getting it to the table... More

I've stayed at this property several times without issue. It is always clean and the staff is friendly. My only wish for this hotel is that it acquire another restaurant. Something low-key that you can take your kids to for dinner besides Alfresco's. I absolutely LOVE the lobby...with all of the nooks and crannies for reading, drinks, conversation. Several different... More

We recently stayed here for three nights. At first, we found the hotel a little stuffy - but then came to appreciate the elegant, historic, Old World feel. Service was very responsive and friendly throughout. The lobby and veranda are charming - especially at night with lit candles on the tables. We stayed in the tower and had an unusually... More

I really enjoyed by two night stay at the Renaissance Vinoy during my wedding weekend. It was great to have a home base to have people running into and out of, it was nice to have so much space to house all the flowers and my dress and all the stuff that comes with having a wedding. The staff was... More

This is by far the nicest place to stay in St. Petersburg. The setting is lovely right near the marina, the grounds are beautiful, and the hotel is beautifully maintained. Although I had only a standard room, it was very large, bright, well appointed with a bed and linens that made it hard to leave it in the morning! Very... More

Very professional, engaged, and courteous staff. Clean and relaxing ambience; comfortable rooms; interesting hotel history. Hotel location is right on the water, next to great restaurants and stores. Dali and Fine Arts museums are within walking/biking distance.
