The Renaissance Vinoy is a beautiful hotel restored to its grandeur of the 1920's. Everything is immaculate and the service is friendly and very professional. I am a fan of "grand hotels" and this is one is a must see in Florida.
The location is very nice( property is very well maintained) even though it is not on the beach but you still have waterfront views of the bay and around the corner is a small beach and palm garden which are both enjoyable as well as the pier. The gym is great and restaurants are all great. I also enjoyed my spa treatments and the spa package was well worth the price.
While I stayed in the newer building (I wanted a balcony), the original building was very beautiful and has a cool story about hauntings. This hotel should play up its history as it has a really great story to tell. I would definitely come back to this resort in the future and would recommend to anyone who likes the old style hotels with architectural charm and elegance.More
