Was at hotel for business meeting for one night. Had stayed at this property 20 years ago and was pleased to see the renovations were thoughtfully done, maintaining the historic charm of the property. At check-in, they did not have a room to match my request. They suggested paying for an upgrade which I could not as my company was... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed the hotel amenities such as the pool,fitness center, spa, yoga and the three hotel bars. The food at the hotel restaurants is also very good. The hotel is located so close to vibrant downtown scene and nice parks and a wonderful marina.

Our school's swim team had an all-day meet on the same day as the homecoming dance, and the girls could not imagine getting ready in the locker rooms at the pool. Enter the Vinoy, and the gracious help of Lisa. We booked a room for 2 nights and Lisa added a parlor suite to the reservation so we would have... More

Spent 3 days here for work in September 2012. Great hotel, great location, great service, great view, etc. I could go on. I really enjoyed sitting on the veranda in the evenings. I wish I was here with my wife and not my colleagues!

Let me start by saying that I was treated very poorly during our stay -- we had planned on a 6 day stay and within hours cut it to 2 days and moved hotels. Here's my saga: Checked in, wasn't provided with any information regarding their hotel, resturant, facilities, spa, etc. I asked a couple of questions and was provided... More

The Vinoy is an unexpected gem, a throwback to a time when elegance was not the exception but the minimum standard. Every staff member was friendly, professional and efficient. The guys at the bar at the lovely Marchand's Bar & Grill reminded me of old school bar tenders in New York City or Washington, DC. They were so authentic they... More

We visit almost every year; this year we were in the historic building and had a nice, large, clean, only slightly worn room. We had reserved a bay view, but that was not available for a reason I still don't understand since we had a reservation for this type of room for both nights. We were put in a non-bay... More

We were there last February, 2012 and the place seemed busy, but staff always pleasant, and the place is CLEAN!!!! Nicely decorated in art-decco design. We loved the pool, and service they offered there. Drinks and nachos were wonderful! We signed up for the historical tour they provide there and it was time well-spent, very interesting history of that hotel!... More

What a nice aged hotel. Very pleasent, you feel like you're stepping back in time when you walk into the lobby. We were first greeted by friendly Bellmen then Amy the front desk clerk who was great. It was my wife's 50th birthday which this hotel stay made it very memorable. You're within walking distance of everything and there was... More
