We stayed one night at the Vinoy to attend the Seafood and Music Festival. We were so excited about staying at The Vinoy. Pulling up to the hotel, the grandiosity is amazing. The exterior and main areas of the hotel are beautiful. We checked in and proceeded to our room. What a let down! The room was clean but outdated...

I saw mixed reviews due to construction, etc. Maria was very accommodating for our last minute, same day reservation. We had a beautiful, clean room with a great view! It was exceptionally quiet, even though at full capacity. The room was spotless, and the beds were a dream. The location offered perfect walking distance to everything. We enjoyed the coffee...

The customer service at this property is very poor. They were not at all accommodating to making our wedding night special. On top of not being able to locate our bags or have champagne in the room (which we paid for) the pool was also closed. The alternative they offered for relaxing at the hotel pool was to go to...

Greetings from The Vinoy and Congratulations on your recent marriage. We are thrilled that you chose us to stay for your honeymoon and as you can imagine, so disappointed that we let you down on such a special evening. I am glad that we have been in touch with you in an attempt to make things right. I have emailed...

We like the Vinoy. Wonderful location. Excellent staff. Nice cuisine. Comfortable beds.... but, this lovely lady is showing her age. That said, she's still a keeper! We enjoy walking along the marina and in the park across the street down to the Dali museum, and sharing a libation in the lobby bar.

My wife and I came here for a business trip and spent a couple of extra days. The hotel is beautiful and historic and a very short walk from the restaurants and shops on Beach Drive, as well as the Museum of Fine Arts and the Dali Museum. It's a little longer walk to the Sunken Gardens or the Chihuly...

Overall, a beautiful property in a great spot. A beautiful path for running on the water - and you can walk to several lovely restaurants with outdoor seating. The hotel's poolside restaurant is in need of an update; we had a good breakfast buffet at Marchand's. Room service breakfast wasn't nearly as good as the buffet. The hotel site says...

I have stayed at the Vinoy many, many times and absolutely love it. It's a gorgeous hotel with a wonderful staff that works to make every guest feel at home. They always go out of their way to make each trip special. The location is perfect, within easy walking distance to all of downtown St. Pete, but I could easily...

We enjoyed our stay at the Vinoy. We were greeted by a Chihuly display at the front door and were pleased to discover that the history and artwork continued through two of the main floors. Service was excellent at the front desk and it was a wonderful lobby to hang out in. We really enjoyed the chairs and view on...

First I have never stayed here, but always like to come and sit at the veranda and have wonderful martinis while people watching. it seems that they have made some overall improvements in the lobby area, but this place is like a grand dame, always classy

We booked a "Bay View" room. If we had realized that the bay would be in the distance and the immediate view was going to be a huge construction site, with no balcony, windows that would not stay open and decor that was at least 40 years old, we would have booked a much cheaper room. The bathroom, however, was...
