“Wow...what an amazing renovation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My last trip to this hotel was in 1976...just prior to one of its many bankruptcies. It is clear that the hotel is finally here to stay, having gone through an amazing renovation. The property is beautiful, the staff are friendly, helpful and responsive from the time you arrive in the driveway until you check out. The verandah has an excellent bar and a lively scene...good spot to people watch. The rooms are spacious, bright and clean, and the entire facility is in great shape (...the small exception being the stairways next to elevator in the original building, which need a coat of paint). Access to the marina, pier and the waterfront is excellent...perfect place to walk or jog. The affiliated golf course is a short shuttle drive away, and a classic course in excellent condition. The food here is very good, although the meals I had on site were all banquet style. This is a place I would definitely come back to...but I wouldn't wait almost 40 years between visits again!

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the marina

we spent 2 days on a tour of Florida and chose the golf break. The hotel is excellent, well maintained and in a great location, lots of bars and restaurants close by. The rooms with a view are first class. service is good. Very nice pool, gym and spa.Restaurants a bit pricey but the 19.25 menu for a set meal in Marchands is good value. The golf package also great value the Vinoy course is in great condition, a good test of golf and you can get a shuttle from the hotel to the course. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Get an ocean front view on a high floor

you did not disappoint. great service throughout. Veranda staff really good, attentive.
Why are you asking me to give more info? Because I told you what you need to know.
No free wifi. Bad. Why don't you get this? You should be the first to offer free wifi, not cheap motels on the interstate.

Room Tip: Hate when expensive hotels don't give free wifi. Like what are you thinking? Luxury without wifi...

A truly beautiful hotel. From the moment you arrive you will be treaded like royalty. The pool and spa are a big attraction. The hotel is located across from the water, it is walking distance to several restaurants and boutiques. The hotel has 2 restaurants to accommodate every taste, the service is superb. A fantastic place to enjoy.

Room Tip: The towers have a beautiful view

We stayed at the Renaissance Vinoy this weekend as it was the venue for a family wedding. The Vinoy is a beautifully appointed, newly renovated historic hotel. The hotel is directly across from the bay, beautiful Straub Park, quaint boutiques/shops, restaurants and close to the St. Pete Fine Arts Museum and the Dali Museum. There are excellent restaurants, bars and pools at the hotel. The lobby is tastefully and richly decorated with "Chihuly" glass and other unique art pieces. The front desk staff were prompt, professional and helpful. Guests are transported to the Golf Club location in nearby and upscale Snell Island. Parking: valet ($20 per day), covered garage ($14) and on the street. We booked a standard room which had a wonderful view of the gardens; the bedroom and bathroom were spacious and tastefully decorated. Our room was $200 per night; this may have been a discounted price for wedding guests. This is a beautiful historic hotel and worth the stay (if you can afford it).

Beautiful resort hotel with superb customer service. They keep track of repeat customers preferences and recall at check-in. Relaxed atmosphere with arty vibe. Have been here for conferences but stayed for relaxation. Hotel staff go above and beyond; they are beyond accommodating. Good gym and pool. I gave it a four instead of a five since the pool can get very crowded on weekends with regular members (non-hotel guests). Would recommend for any reason (business, couples, fun...)

We visited the Vinoy over Easter weekend and was immediately impressed by the courteous staff. Everyone was eager to ensure we were satisfied with our room, our meals, our time at the pool . . . everywhere at the resort. You can walk along the bay, have a drink overlooking the marina, visit the Museum of Fine Arts (highly recommend) or just chill at the pool. My wife and I are definitely going back.
