We stayed at the Vinoy for a few days at the beginning of November for the Florida Homebuilders Association Conference. From the time we arrived, our experience was fantastic.
We were greeted by genuinely cheerful employees both outside and inside the resort, including a gentleman who I assume was a manager. The staff who checked us in were friendly and thorough, as was the young man who brought our bags to our room, hung our clothes and offered to go get us ice for our cooler. He even went downstairs to find out where my husband's first meeting was going to be and called us up in our room to let us know.
The accommodations were beautiful (although next time I will probably upgrade to a water view room). There were plenty of places within walking distance for me to wander around, both on the resort site and a short walk away, while my husband attended meetings. Restaurants on the resort grounds had great food selections and reasonable prices.
Truly a beautiful setting, worthy of more stars then this rating system allows! I would definitely return.More
