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 room for the team to rest between prelims and finals, and for the dance prep as soon as the kids were ready. Knowing we didn't intend to stay overnight on the second day, she worked to give us a break on the price, which was greatly appreciated.
The bedroom, with 2 comfy queens, was spacious, and the additional space, murphy bed and most importantly, a second full bathroom, of the suite was perfect.
Room service breakfast was delicious and right on time.
Every staff member encountered was cheerful and helpful, even the valet guys when we spent Saturday shuttling back-and-forth between the hotel and pool ("in for the night?" "nope, not yet").
Our rooms were in the main building, which was a first for me, and the elevators are tiny, and a bit slow. We had a great view out the front, which included a gazebo where weddings were taking place.
The front desk was a little surprised when we went to check out at 9pm, but that was our plan, not a result of a problem.
Will definitely stay here again for similar events, and highly recommend the hotel. We didn't have time to eat in the restaurants or use any facilities on this trip, although in the past we have had a room with the small individual hot tub on the patio, and that is fun. There are many restaurant choices within walking distance, and if you like the Chihuly in the lobby, you can easily walk over the Chihuly museum from the Vinoy (and you should).
