Our tour guide (Colleen) was super enthusiastic and knowledgeable - very passionate! If you like history, you'll love the tour as the hotel has a lot of great stories to tell. On top of all this, the tour is a super value: an informative tour, a spectacular lunch and valet parking all for $27.

This is the first time that I have gone to the Vinoy hotel in St. Petersburg. I went there to volunteer with habitat for humanity. They were having an event this past Saturday in the Plaza ballroom. The event was very successful. During the time that I was there, I had a chance to go through the hotel. I would recommend this hotel, for families, couples and singles. The hotel is located close to the water which makes it very convenient for those wanting some beach time. St. Petersburg itself is a very quaint community, and the people that live there are very welcoming.

We stayed in a newly renovated room with a balcony and 2 queen beds. Very large with good beds, a large tv, desk, a couple of comfortable chairs, great bathroom with large shower and separate water closet. The balcony had a nice view of the tennis courts and even a distant water view. Happily no broadloom! Very quiet at night. Really good WiFi reception. the pool area is very large and looks great although we didn’t use it. We had a drink on the large Verandah at the front of the hotel. Meh. High prices, slow service and mediocre drinks. However they are located close to lots of other good bars and restaurants as well as the free trolley that can take you around the city. High prices but a great place to stay.

There is so much to learn about a city from touring its historic hotels. The Vinoy offers an opportunity to glimpse into St. Petersburg's history. The tour's cost includes parking, tour and a fixed lunch -- it was a lovely way to spend the day.
