“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Great place to stay with wonderful staff. The room was very nice. The elevators were a bit small so if you pushing a stroller you may have to wait a run or two. Walking distance to very nice restaurants and museums. Great Expectations Children's museum is approximately 1 mile away. Close to St. Petersburg beaches and not a fare drive to the Tampa Zoo.

We stayed at the Vinoy during a recent trip to St. Pete, and found it to be a very special property. It has been renovated in the last 10 years or so, and really brought back to a sense of grandeur. The room was relatively simple, but comfortable, and the staff ensured we did not have any unanswered questions. The breakfast buffet was in a dining area with hand painted murals and a nice bar area in the center, which was nice, but the actual selection of food could have been a little more given the price. All in all, this will be a hotel to consider for a future trip to St. Petersburg.

We normally do not stay at such high end resorts but it was definetly worth it. The staff was totally dedicated to doing whatever they could for us. The tower rooms with balconies were perfect except for 2 monor issues. Room 372 had a bathroom door that is warped or someting, it would not close at all. The other issue was the king bed comes with a queen top sheet which is not easy to share between two adults...and we are small people. Highly recommend staying here in view of negative reviews of other nearby hotels in downtown.

Room Tip: Get rooms in the tower, with balconies. If you can afford it, get a first floor room with a jaccuzzi...

We ran the Women's St. Pete half marathon and stayed at this hotel. Samantha the desk clerk was extremely kind and friendly. She was helpful in the check in and out process. House keeping was great too. They brought everything extra we needed and even included some extra towels that we didn't. The pool area was beautiful and the poolside good and service were exceptional as well. I would absolutely stay here again.

This is an old "pink palace" Florida hotel (similar in style to Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach). The rooms in the older part of the hotel are a bit small and are beginning show their age. Rooms on the back of the hotel overlook AC units ... thus some noise. The rooms in the newer tower are better with more updated bathrooms and larger room spaces with balconies. The big, heated pool and the exercise area are great (and complimentary classes are a nice touch). The prices for buffet breakfast is very high; a "grab and Go" breakfast on the verandah works at a reasonable cost.

Room Tip: If you can get one in the new Tower (from the 1990's) the bathrooms are more up-to-date.

Location is perfect, hotel staff is excellent, and the lobby cafe offers many delicious food & drink items! However, my room was very tired looking, and overpriced. I went to enjoy some spa services, and was quite pleased, especially with massages from Paul and Christine. The foot ritual treatment with Katie was outstanding. The quality of the services and their professional providers more than made up for the lack of a spa environment. The Vinoy magazine found in my room states "opulent day spa and salon" ... I only noticed two treatment rooms towards the rear of the salon and two in the fitness center, around the corner from the spa and where you'll find the showers, steam, sauna, jacuzzi and lockers. Very inconvenient for guests and not conducive to relaxation. Never the less, you will receive great treatments.

This hotel was nice! I loved the view of the bay. The only thing that would make it better is if it was on the beach! (Which you just can't do! ) Super close to a ton of restaurants and again the view of the bay was amazing. The hotel restaurant was also good.
