5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is old but beautiful. Everything was very clean. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The beds were probably the most comfortable of any hotel I have ever stayed in. Great location! We were able to walk to anywhere we wanted to go. Lots of restaurants near by. Walked to the Holoocaust museum as well as a movie theater.... More

The hotel was nice. We upgraded to a king room w/ a balcony. We were given the option of a regular balcony or a balcony bay-view, which was significantly more money. We opted for the $25 per night upgrade to just balcony. We overlooked the tennis courts and had a partial bay view. The balconies are not private, so make... More

What a property ... Strikes you as a very classy grande hotel, with a lot of information about the hotel and its role in the history of the city presented in the form of photo displays in the northern end of the lobby, plus some famous Chihuly exhibits in its center, a wonderful quaint Tea Garden, magnificent banquet hall, a...

Sorry to say this hotel was not what we expected. We were here with family (2 rooms) for 5 nights. Never once in a phone conversation with the concierge did they ever mention the pool would be closed for renovations.... They mislead us on when the pool would be opening and in the end it did not reopen until after... More

Thank you for choosing to stay at The Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Golf Club. We appreciate your feedback after your most recent visit. As you can imagine, there is never a good time to do repairs and maintenance on our very busy pool area. We chose this time due to the unpredictable weather which for the most part, seemed to...

We loved the Vinoy. In an era where most hotels look exactly like every other Marriott, it is refreshing to stay at a hotel with its history and original style intact. Just wonderful. We especially enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants and shops. The hotel also had live music outside.

This property is a classic. Location, location, location, with excellent amenities and top notch service. Golf, dining, leisure around the interior outdoor garden for meeting friends or associates, avail yourself of the large pool, or whatever you want! The rooms offer beautiful vistas of the water, gardens, tennis courts, and much more. Very plush bedding, extra large bathrooms, etc.

The Vinoy is charming in its elegance and historic charm. The staff is friendly to the point of being saccharine. The rooms - the entire place - is extremely clean. The only thing I disliked is that they charge for everything - internet access, airline checki-ns - and room service tends to be too pricey. But I suppose it's very... More

The Marriott Renaissance Vinoy is beautiful we were apprehensive after hearing the hotel was 90 years old but curious after talking to several people who recommended this lovely historic building. Each staff member greeted us with a smile and were gracios and helpful in every way. Our room #929 had a beautiful view and was spotless. The beds very comfortable... More

The Vinoy is a beautiful hotel in a great location, and the staff are exceptional - always polite and helpful. Minor niggles: 1. No decent resort shop! A hotel this size should have a bit more than a few T-shirts and pharmaceuticals. They're right next door to lots of local crafts and museums, and should be showcasing them. 2. Swimming... More

This is not my first visit to the Vinoy. Even though I live in the area, I enjoy getting away to the Vinoy for a min-vacation. The hotel is elegant and the staff incredible. This time we had a lovely room overlooking the garden. The gym is GREAT, which given that I'm a gym unicorn (who wants to be a... More
