Excellent hotel, and staff! Ally our host, was superb at check in, very friendly and sweet. Went out of her way to explain the benefits options available to us during g our stay. As a gold elite, we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite, with 3 bathrooms, 5 balconies, and 3 separate living areas. Beyond and above service. Thanks to... More

Beds are amazing. Was there with a large group for wedding. All said the same. Service was excellent, from reception, waitstaff, etc. I'm amazed how people are so picky when writing reviews. I'm sorry I didn't look for cracked tiles! It is perfectly situated-abundance of restaurants and sights within walking distance. I look forward to a repeat visit.

Treated very well from beginning to end.Bathroom has no fan so plan on having the mirrors foggy.The a/c works well but need to set very low to get cold.The location is great, plenty of great places to eat in walking distance. If you plan on parking there, the cost is $15/day for self parking and $20 for valet, add $13... More

Stayed at the Vinoy Fri Aug 8 & 9. Hotel is excellent. Great location, atmosphere and service. BUT the restaurant is run by incompetants! Sunday morning at 10:30 am we went down for breakfast. The entire - very large restaurant was almost empty - yet - we were told there was a 40 minute wait for a table (the hostess... More

I found out this Hotel was built in 1925 during my visit. The architecture both inside and out reflects that, without feeling dated or stale. The entry and lobbies of the hotel are absolutely stunning. There is tons of outdoor seating. There is a beautiful lobby and bar inside. On the weekends there is a great crowd and vibe. That... More

It is always nice to welcome guests who have an appreciation for old-world charm and architecture, as it appears that you do. We like to consider ourselves "historically hip" combining the beauty of our legend with the new amenities and accommodations that we offer. Sitting on the veranda has a highlight of so many guests as they take in the... More

Very pretty lobby, wonderful valet staff, and good location! However, the rooms were not great. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel room, this isn't it. Between our family, we had 4 hotel rooms and each was different. Some rooms were more updated than the others. Our bathroom lacked ventilation, even with the fan on, and it was hard... More

Classic old style charmer in the best location in the city. From the greeting we received as we entered the driveway, to the excellent staff at reception, how could it be better? That was before we got to the spacious room, very clean and comfortable, and enjoyed a fantastic view of the bay. The hotel lacks for nothing and is... More

We have heard from many guests before that although they may live nearby, getting away to the Vinoy for a night or two is just "what the doctor ordered" and exactly what was needed. As you mentioned, the resort is beautiful; the surrounding area has so much to offer in terms of things to do and see and our team... More

We booked this hotel for a couple of nights to relax after some manic days at the Orlando parks. The hotel is very picturesque in some lovely kept grounds with very helpful and attentive staff. The rooms are spacious and quite luxurious (robes) and our one had a view eastward over the tennis courts and the water. You are close... More

Orlando is certainly wonderful, but I know it was a nice retreat for you to stay at The Vinoy - the perfect ending to a vacation. I appreciate your kind words about the staff, the service, the accommodations and most especially our History Gallery. We pride ourselves on the history of this beautiful gem of a resort. History Tours are... More

My family and I decided to go to see a Rays game last weekend, and at the last minute found an amazing price for the Vinoy. While I'd been to this hotel 15 years ago, I was surprised at just how wonderful this Renaissance property is. To say we were impressed is an understatement. The grounds and view are lovely,... More

What is there to dislike about this hotel! When approaching the hotel, you feel like you are a movie star. It is huge with beautiful palm trees; it is definitely a resort. The valet guys immediately help you, and once inside, the staff also helps you immediately (from checking in to the porters/bell boys). Our room was not ready yet,... More
